Mountain Biker Lands First Natural Terrain Double Backflip

In early April, Paul Basagoitia became the first freeride mountain biker to land a double backflip on natural terrain (as opposed to a steel ramp). Located near to the border of Utah and Arizona, Basagoitia worked alongside his sponsors to create the perfect set of jumps, which allowed him enough time in the air to pull the double backflip. The achievement marks an important moment for freeride mountain biking progression. After multiple unsuccessful attempts, Basagoitia finally..

Macneil in Europe

Classic Euro trip with Kevin Kiraly, Dillon Lloyd, and Fabien Dulong. 5 minutes of modern street riding from the young guns. It's great and all... But what did you think about the music? Not really "web video" material... You tell me.

Ruben Rodriguez & Devon Smillie on Fly Bikes

Unfortunately, Devon's welcome edit isn't out yet, but it's a pretty big move for him so we're stoked for him.

Pete Sawyer on We The People Pro

Deserved and earned. Pete Sawyer is a complex street rider, the kind that puts difficult tricks onto obstacles others sweat over putting basic tricks on. This video overflows with bike control and does away with monotonous, overdone tricks.

RIP Mike Tag

A sad day for BMX. Mike Tag opened up to the web about his battle with cancer about a year ago and the BMX community came together like never before. Unfortunately, Tag passed recently and the community comes together again, this time in mourning. Every website is blowing up with condolences from twitter to The Come Up to BMX Forum. Instead of posting every statement from every big name in the industry, I will agree with Adam22 and post a statement by Leland Thurman that's a little more..
