Friday expedition: Why We Run, with Bernd Heinrich

Friday expedition: Why We Run, with Bernd Heinrich

Pure inspiration and outdoors exploration from a man who has run many many miles in his lifetime.

How refreshing to see somebody so clearly still passionate and dependent on his sport even after so many years.

And what a retreat out there in the woods.

It makes us think of the character our Mountain Man t-shirt was modelled from.

Watch this and escape the keyboard for 15 minutes. You need it. We all do right now.

Innes Graham talks racing… and not racing

Jaysus. If you’re going to go out, make sure you go out in flames. Innes Graham did — check out this very well-told story of the reason he fell out of downhill racing, got into BMX and photography, and how he’s just finding mountain bikes again after three years off.

Hats off to Sleeper.co / Max Rendall for this quality piece of storytelling.

“For some, racing is everything. For others, its just a part of the whole picture. The long anticipated return, Innes was at the peak of his game when he decided to take a step back from racing. After a 3-4 year long hiatus from mountain biking, it was time to re-ignite an old flame.”
