Pedal Powered Kamakazi – Freeride Mountain Biking

Travis Gneiting News

Freestyle Mountain biking, the Golden Child of Dirt Biking & Mountain Biking

Freeride entails large drops, jumps, and Evil Knievel stunts minus the fire and hoops. These bikes a meant to take abuse and heavy beatings with suspension travel up to 6″-9″. Yet these riders deserve some major creds – their bikes don’t have half the support and suspension that dirt bikes do – and some of the heavy weight riders are doing comparable stunts and are catching some major air with heavy impact landings.

Red Bull is one of the major sponsors of the sport and host the Redbull Rampage competition each year, set in the Grand Canyon desert – with impressive back drops, stunts and even more epic crash landings. Sit back for the teaser of the 2012 finals:
