You may think this is just a highlight real, and it is, but this park edit also displays how Robbie Roether rides every day. Robbie Roethler’s 2014-2015 Park Edit is nothing short of amazing. Hammer after hammer, banger after banger, Robbie rips jumps and thrashes rails. It’s difficult to fill a 2:41 edit with so many heavy tricks, yet somehow Robbie goes above and beyond what is extraordinary. How many riders riders have a Cab 270°- Front Board to Back Board (Change Up) – Pretzel Out as an ender? Just one, Robbie Roethler.

Chima Ferguson is no joke. With flawless style Chima does what he does best in Vans’ Propeller. Even after a beating Chima owns every drop, stair-set, gap, and bank he skates. Maybe it the Australia waters that give him his super powers, or just maybe his pro-model Vans Chima Ferguson Pro Skate Shoes help him out. What ever it is, it works.

Red Bull’s newest mountain bike event is called Sky Gate, whereas I simply call it sketchy. The course flows rapidly down a 50° pitched flight of 999 stairs that leads up to the world renowned Big Gate at Tianmen Mountain National Park – Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, China.
It’s very likely that the riders invited had no idea what the course would look like, let alone ride like. An intense straight drop-in to 500 stairs, onto sections of flats, little gaps to stairset landings, to rickety berm/wallrides, a blind closeout-ish gap to short stop finish line like this is not for the faint-hearted. To stand behind the start gate’s wand is one thing, but if you actually want to drop you’ll need watermelon sized balls.
In the highlights reel above you’ll see all the action, including Kelly McGarry’s brutal slam at the 1:47 mark. I’m not sure if the 360p quality video is what makes the course look damp, but it’s easy to see there isn’t any room for error. Event coordinators need to ensure that riders can ride to their best ability while creating a course that is fast and technical; it’s a tough job, but someone needs to do it.
If you’re thinking about doing something crazy like this, make sure to wear a helmet. Check out all of our helmets HERE.
Vans has an eye for talent. There’s proof in Curren Caples’ fluid style. Picking up sponsors is no easy task, and Caples has put in work day in and day out to get where he’s at. Nice work.

UnReal is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren’t the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you — the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret — the ones who know the way into the UnReal world.
Starring: Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Cam McCaul, Graham Agassiz, Steve Smith, Tom van Steenbergen and Thomas Vanderham, with Brook MacDonald, Finn Iles, Ian Morrison, James Doerfling, Matty Miles and friends.
