DJ Brandt goes from park, to dirt, to street in his latest edit for Mongoose . It’s ok. DJ Brandt | Mongoose Bikes | Pearlescent Media | Additional cinematography // Ethan Nell | Alex Squirrely | Reed Boggs DJ was one of the very first riders to adopt the VP-Harrier as his go to pedal and hasn’t looked back since – except to spot his landings.

Nicholi Rogatkin crushes a second season on VP Harrier pedals Nicholi Rogatkin seemingly came out of nowhere to stun the mountain bike world in 2014 with performances that put him on par with freeride’s top athletes. Little did they know that Nicholi had been riding since the age of five, turned pro in BMX at 13, and by the time he had turned 18 had already won BMX worlds. In 2015 Nicholi Rogatkin was in the running for every major title in slopestyle competition and even threatened to knock-out the sport’s current legendary riders at the RedBull Joyride where he eventually took the silver medal. Nicholi is recognized by everyone in the sport as one of the latest riders to truly push the limits on what is expected at the top level. Nicholi’s BMX style and experience jump to the forefront of his riding. Slopestyle had grown to value bigView More>>

Urban DH Helmet Cam footage from top pros are all must-watch and this video proves why ! International travel hiccups be damned. Mick Hannah doesn’t let a lost bike stop him from absolutely slaying this incredible course. “I was a little nervous at first, by the time qualifying came around I felt reasonably comfortable, but Urban DH is always a little scary” The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo represents Urban DH competition at its finest and most chaotic. Every summer, this world famous race takes place in the UNESCO heritage port city of Valparaiso, Brazil. The course is specially erected utilizing uniquely steep and narrow streets, secluded pedestrian walkways with staircases, and dropping from precipices between the city’s terraced levels. You would think that this insanity could only exist once a year, but you would be wrong. The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo is one of FIVE! stops on the City Downhill World TourView More>>

From the MOB Pro CX Team: Good afternoon Friends! WOW, what a year it has been for us. I say this at the end of every year, and each year I continue to be amazed by how much we grow and our success both on and off the bikes. This concludes our 5th consecutive season as a professional cyclocross team and it has been a truly wild and fun ride. What started as a very modest, almost zero budget one rider team has grown into what is one of the must successful professional CX team in the nation! Since our last update at the end of October we continued to burn up the roads and the dirt collecting victories and podiums all over the country on our Kona cross bikes and VP VX pedals.
Our Modus engineer Fred Stamm and company destroyed (or really ended up destroyed at) the SLO Little 500. Too many super fun ways to ride bikes in our area… this is but one… Sick edit by Jonathan Roberts.
