Added a new video Hounded // Graham Agassiz 9/14/2018 10:22 AM
Original

Graham Agassiz is one of the most well-known freeriders in the sport, but as a native of Kamloops, BC, his hobbies (and skills) extend far beyond the bike. We talk with Aggy about competing in Rampage, the Canadian comedy Fubar and lessons learned from the sale of an old El Camino. About the Series: Hounded is an interview show hosted by Freehub Magazine's Managing Editor Jann Eberharter and the beloved office coonhound Lucy. Between a few beers and a round on the neglin stump, we chat with some of mountain biking's most genuine characters. -- Subscribe to Freehub Magazine!

Original

Bringing a business to fruition is often quite literally a dream come true, be it a locally owned bike shop or a hand-made hip pack.

About the Series: Every community has its cornerstones, the people making forward progression possible. Bellingham, WA, has a thriving mountain bike scene with so many people contributing in every possible way imaginable.

Added a new video Session Series // Episode 2: Summer Escape with the Free Radicals 8/30/2018 10:36 AM
Original

Summer treated the Free Radicals to desert like temperatures and tan lines on par with the most leathery of roadies. Navigating Whistler this time of year can be near impossible when everyday is someone else's Friday. Luckily, after one too many brannigans, the boys were able to escape the madness and found themselves deeply immersed in the mountains.

Added a new video Stories from the Dirt // The Legendary Trails of Whistler, BC 7/17/2018 1:22 PM
Original

Every trail has a story—be it behind the name, behind the location or behind the builder. In Whistler, British Columbia, arguably the Mecca of mountain biking, the number (and quality) of trails is astounding. And, of course, each one has it's own unique story of creation. Three Whistler classics—River Runs Through It, Dirt Merchant and Rockwork Orange—each have their own style and saga. -- Subscribe to Freehub Magazine!

Added a new video Lost & Found // Hidden Treasure in the Lost Sierra 6/12/2018 10:16 AM
Original

Trails inevitably come and go, but rarely are they lost forever. In California’s Northern Sierra Nevada, between Downieville and Sierra City, the area’s mining history contributed to a network of trails that faded away with the Gold Rush. But now, recreation has begun their resurrection, contributing to the local small-town economies and preserving the area’s rich history. Professional mountain biker Eric Porter and Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship’s trail whisperer Kurt Gensheimer spent a week in the Lost Sierra this past fall, riding forgotten trails and finding a different kind of wealth than the area is known for.

Original

Spring is a natural time for celebration, and this year the Free Radicals had lots to celebrate. Will’s hand was successfully re-attached to his arm, Mark was finished working in the Polar Vortex of Prince George, BC and after 4 years of full-time service, the increasingly unreliable van, Elaine, was swapped out for a bougie 1991 21ft Gulfstream RV. Shout out to Vince for the steal-of-a-deal. Oh, did we mention the trails in British Columbia are in all-time condition. -- Subscribe to Freehub Magazine!

Added a new video Guaranteed Adventure // New Zealand, Four Bikes, One Van and No Plan 3/13/2018 10:09 AM
Original

Adventures don't have to be deliberate affairs. They don't need to involve remote destinations, premeditated objectives or detailed plans. Last winter, four of us explored the South Island of New Zealand in a severely clapped out van, but our adventure could have really taken place anywhere. So pack your friends in a van, or whatever vehicle you have access to, and go find some new trails to ride. Don't worry, something will go wrong.

Added a new video The Art of Adventure // Chapter 3: Joey Schusler's Time to Reflect 2/6/2018 10:01 AM
Original

Adventures are often glorified as wild missions to exotic places, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. The Colorado River and its surrounding terrain is a natural wonder not far from Joey’s house and the perfect place to escape on a solo, multi-day bike rafting trip. There’s no better way to step back from the whirlwind of daily life than by sleeping under the stars. About This Series: With roots in Boulder, CO, the mountains have been a formative force in Joey Schusler’s life. However, after nearly a decade of racing—climbing the ranks from local races to the UCI World Cup—his focus began to shift toward filmmaking, seeing how far his bike could take him, not just how fast he could go. In the years since, he’s traveled the world with his camera, bike and best friends, exploring rugged and remote areas, telling the stories of places and their people. For Joey, adventuring is not only a lifestyle, but an art form.

Joey Schusler found his love for mountain biking at the ripe age of 13. As a young teenager, few things rivaled the exhilaration. He set his sights on racing professionally, and by 2010 was doing just that as part of Yeti’s World Cup team. Yet for as fun as racing was, Joey soon fell in love with bikepacking, a change in direction that would provide new meaning to life on the bike. Stay tuned for Chapter 2 of The Art of Adventure dropping on January 23rd! Continue the story with Joey's profile "The Chairman" from Issue 8.4 for free!

Added a new video Tour de Tahoe // Bikepacking and Fly Fishing in the Sierra Mountains 1/2/2018 9:54 AM
Original

All we wanted to do was catch fish and ride our bikes. We did a lot of the latter. Add in a drivetrain explosion and fifteen stitches and things get interesting. Despite a few hiccups, morale was at an all-time high during our three-day, sixty mile bikepacking and fly fishing trip along the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pace was slow and the fish were non-existent, but the good times were plentiful. Continue the story with "Welcome to the Gong Show" from Issue 8.4 for free! Subscribe to Freehub Magazine!

Original

Summer in Canada’s Yukon Territory has no shortage of daylight, and thus no reason to hurry. At 17, Dylan Sherrard moved away from Whitehorse to pursue a life of mountain biking, a path that would ultimately bring him back as his hometown became a sought-after destination for riding in the north. Fully embracing the leisurely pace of life, Dylan introduces Jaime Hill and Claire Buchar to some of his favorite people and places.

Added a new video The Escape Artist // Thomas Vanderham 11/28/2017 10:40 AM
Original

Thomas Vanderham's moment of clarity came when he was ten years old. After witnessing a neighbor kid doing wheelies in an alley, Vanderham set out to master the technique himself. His first attempt was spastic and short lived, but for a brief moment he felt that perfect balance point. That feeling, the one that fluttered through him during that first wheelie attempt, is one he has continued to chase his entire life.

We all seek the feeling that ten-year-old Thomas had. When we find it, we want to milk it and are constantly trying to re-create it. We search for it on the weekends and in our free time. We daydream about it and occasionally—perhaps while waiting for a train to cross—we'll even slip back into that feeling again, even if only for a moment. It calls to us, driving us to push through pain and fear. It frees us from the rut of routine life, which is exactly what our bodies and minds crave. After all, we're all just looking for an escape.

Pete Costain has been referred to as the Godfather of Whitefish mountain biking more than a few times. As a long-time local and trailbuilder, he helped scratch in some of the original trails at Spencer mountain before taking his company Terraflow Trails full time in 2009, legitimizing his building and expanding throughout Montana.
