Get the Edge 


The Edge magazine was relaunched on the 10th June and is now a showcase for riders wanting to show their design/photographic/editorial skills.

All issues are available to download from their site but why not get your own work in there too. Next issue's theme is 'abstract' so get the cogs whiring and get those camera batteries charged!

Le Parkour 
Parkour has been in the media quite a bit recently over in the UK and I thought would be relevant to put some info up here about it.

For those who don't know, Parkour is the art of using just the human body to pass any obsticle and, to put it into MTB terms, is like a mixture of Trials and Freeride but without the bike!

It's an incredible art that requires supreme confidence, skill, hard work and above all a strong mind. I am always in awe of these guys and I see so many similarities to the way we bikers approach things.

Check out the clips and pics on the site below and make sure you read about the great David Belle!
