Danny MacAskill goes on an epic trip with Claudio Caluori across Graubünden AKA ‘The Home of Trails’.
Graubünden has been nicknamed “The Home of Trails”, no other alpine region in Europe has as many trails in such a small area – over 17,000km of rideable paths stretch across the mountainous region. It’s the ultimate mountain biker’s playground.
The alluring call of endless trails also drew Danny MacAskill and Claudio Caluori to the region. Legendary trials biker Danny broke onto the scene in 2009 with his viral Inspired Bicycles video, followed by numerous viral hits such as Wee Day Out in 2016. Claudio has established himself as a cult figure in mountain biking with his hilarious UCI DH course previews.

Having grown up in Croydon I’ve done this a few times myself so I felt this guy’s pain:
Around this time of year, Christmas music is everywhere. Sometimes, you hear a familiar tune in the most obscure places.
Manta5 is in the final stages of developing a revolutionary Hydrofoil Bike that allows riders to plane across the surface of the water like never before! Check out the first glimpse of the prototype Hydrofoil Bike AKA the ‘Proto6’:
Eighteen of the world’s best freeride mountain bikers and hundreds of fans convened in Virgin, Utah, on Friday for the sport’s annual blue-ribbon event, the Red Bull Rampage.
The riders, and their teams of “diggers,” had spent the previous week on the mountainside crafting their own lines into the dirt of Utah’s Red Rock Country. With the course completed, each rider took two runs that were judged based on the difficulty of the line, air amplitude, control and fluidity, tricks, and style.
No two competitors took the same route down, and the crowd was treated to a succession of gap jumps, huge drops, and flips that seemed to defy gravity.

Martyn Ashton travels to Whistler, Canada, to ride the most famous MTB trails in the world on an adapted Canyon bike, courtesy of GMBN.
Martyn Ashton is a household name for anyone who has even ridden a mountain bike. He’s a British and World MTB trials champion and credited by many as one of the pioneers of the sport, who brought trials into the mainstream mountain biking community. It would take a very, very long time to list all of his achievements and projects, but you get the jist… he’s a legend!
Despite being a world champion and team manager, Martyn never had the honour of riding Whistler Bike Park in British Colombia, Canada. In an accident in 2013, Martyn broke his back, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. But being the absolute baller he is, he hasn’t let that stop him from continuing in the sport he has done so much to progress.
Earlier in the year, Martyn went to Whistler with the Global Mountain Bike Network (GMBN) and his adapted Canyon Sender to take part in the Crankworx Air DH – one of the most famous downhill races in the world – a dream Martyn has always had. Who doesn’t want to ride the MTB mecca?
