With Mount Sopris looming in the background at nearly 13,000ft, well-equipped mountain bikers from Carbondale, Colorado-based Backbone Media find their form. Riding steep drops, switchbacks and zigzagging trails across the scrubland of western Colorado, the trio muster their technical skills aboard sweet bikes provided by DIAMONDBACK and HAIBIKE. Pedaling both traditional and electric-assisted full-suspension bikes, the twisting course culminates with trestles across an old Chevrolet Monte Carlo pulled in years ago by avid cyclists. North Carolina-based director Derek Alan Rowe was impressed with the speed and pinpoint steering of each, including a former under-23 national champ, who took on the project with enthusiasm.
