VIDEO: Matt Jones – Behind the Scenes of his Worlds First

Slopestyler Matt Jones gehört zu den Besten der Welt und fährt auf sämtlichen Events unter den Top 10. Doch was es alles braucht um neue Tricks zu stehen und wie man sich an einen noch nie versuchten Stunt ran tastet, seht ihr in seinem neusten Vlog.

A lot of you will have already seen the Design & Conquer series that I spent last year producing with Red Bull, where I worked on worlds first tricks that have never been attempted on a mountain bike. And the feedback on the series has been rad. But this is a deeper insight into the story behind the trials and tribulations that went into the challenge of landing something like this on my dirt jump bike, on a purpose built course down in Devon. I’m stoked to have had the opportunity to try something like this and make it happen, but a lot of the process seemed impossible. So much went into the setup at my slopestyle compound, that’s where everything came together in time to send it on the real drop! Enjoy, sorry for the swear words!! Legends.

VIDEO: Pedro Burns gegen die Sonnenfinsternis

Redbull und Trek Factory Racing Enduro Athlet Pedro Burns fährt in Solar Eclipse gegen die Sonnenfinsternis. Das seltene Phänomen geschieht nur alle paar Jahrhunderte am gleichen Ort und deshalb waren die Vorbereitungen für das Edit so essentiell. 

It literally takes planets and stars to align for a total solar eclipse to happen. It’s a phenomena that can actually happen as often as two to four times per year, but with our moon casting a shadow “merely“ 40 kilometres in diameter it takes centuries for a total eclipse to repeat at the same place.

Long story short…when it happens over our heads, we should make the most out of it! And this is exactly what Pedro Burns had in mind for December 14th 2020 when a total solar eclipse had been scheduled over his home country of Chile. The Villarica volcano laid directly in the path of the moon’s shadow and hence provided a perfect playground for a riding experience second to none.
