MTB Wednesday – videos for your perusal

I’m down a rabbit-hole of MTB videos, and loving every moment!

First, it’s the Absa Cape Epic, the most crazy-beautiful-tough, and yes, EPIC! South African MTB stage race.  There are tons of videos on the race Youtube, including this one of Kathrin Stirnemann descending, and these ones focusing on the women’s race from Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 but my favourite video so far is this one on the Specialized Youtube, following Annika Langvad and Ariane Kleinhans as they talk about picking up a time penalty in Stage 2 and then fighting back in Stage 3.


In the Downhill world, the Athertons are training in Malaga, and there’s this gorgeous video on Red Bull Bike, with Rachel Atherton talking about helmetcam (my favourite thing) and tons of helmetcam shots.  Love it!  And if you want to see what they’ll be riding this year, Dirt MTB looks at the new 2015 GT Fury (love that colour, Rach!)


If Enduro’s more your thing, here’s a team video from the Commençal Vallnord Enduro Team, including Cécile Ravanel (I first saw this on Pinkbike)


Something else I saw on Pinkbike, and it’s so appropriate…  first, a film following the building of a MAXX Fat Bike (guess the colour) and then this lovely film, including ice fishing, outdoor cooking, snow riding and a beer sponsor…. typical Bavarian life!  It all looks like so much fun….  and this, people, is why I love MTB!

    Should be a great MTB World Cup this year! And with Marianne Vos going all-in on the XCO races, even better!🙂
