We use Slack as a workplace communication tool at Pinkbike and we have a #random channel we use to share an assortment of videos and stories from all corners of the cycling world and beyond… We thought some moments from last week were too good not to share with a wider audience, so here are a few. highlights.

Cameron Jeffers attempts to break Boris’s hour cycling record

great quotes Filippo Ganna holds the current UCI hour record. Reach a distance of 56,792 km. Let me be honest, I wouldn’t stand a chance. So when I found out that someone had set a distance on a Santander Boris bike, I had to give it a go! Cameron Jeffers

great quotes “The main problem with building one of the biggest drops you’ve ever done is that at some point you have to test it”


“I love the challenge of pushing my absolute limits, that’s why I cycle, it’s what I love doing and what matters to me”

Throughout his 20 year career, Gee Atherton has constantly sought to challenge himself, to push the absolute limits of what is possible in mountain biking, whether on a major mountain filming project or at an event like Rampage.

He promised us all it was going to be a scary experience, but once he saw that 60 foot drop he 100% believed he could land it. He almost did it.

Get well soon Geeman

Swampfest Documentary – ‘Build Up Burn Down’

great quotes I’m sure you hear this all the time but…. Swampfest is truly a one-of-a-kind event. Swampfest transcends everything you think a BMX event can be. Trey explains it all to us in this documentary from Yawn Media. From ridiculous ramp ideas to ramp construction to fires at the end of the event.

Thanks to Trey Jones and the entire Swampfest team for continuing to put on one of the best events of the year.
