…It’s Website Wednesday: Rip TV?

Rip TV

Rip TV is “an interactive broadband action sports TV network with an emphasis on Mountain Biking, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Skiing, BMX, Surfing, MotoX, and more”.

With “exclusive programming, live-event coverage, and entertaining weekly shows”, as well as crazy crashes, treacherous tricks, cool contests, and gnarly news, it’s designed to fill all of your extreme sports needs in one place (and let you know about all of the sports that can kill you).

If that’s not good enough, then just keep in mind that Rip TV is still in Beta, so you can have that ‘there before the crowds’ feeling for a little wile longer.

…Freeride mountain biking is a magical thing?

Freeride mountain biking has always been a sport that wows me. The guys that do it take their bikes and throw themselves off of the biggest cliffs they can find, landing among rocks and cactus and all sorts of other things that would tear them up if they land even a little bit funny, and they do it cause it’s fun for them. The paychecks are small, the fan clubs are smaller, but their love of the sport is huge, and that’s what makes it so pure. The following video is a collection of all of the reasons I love watching freeride mountain biking: the jumps, the falls, and the feeling you get just watching them of “how can anybody do that and survive?”
