Trek World Racing is once again running its popular "Local Support Crew" program. The Local Support Crew program was first created in 2001 with one of our earlier teams, as a way for fans to join the team as support crew when the team visited a race near to where they lived.

The attitude of the CANYON Factory Freeride Team riders could not be more #mååh – which means nothing less than having fun with every pedal stroke along the way! After all, these young guns are out there for a good time and just do what they do best. Packed with new tricks, Thomas Genon, Anton Thelander and "newbie" Peter Henke are ready to rock'n'roll the 2014 FMB World Tour year.

So, basically the same thing you have seen over the last few years, but optimized for DH applications.  The Cassette is 7 speed, 10-24 gearing with 2 steps in each gear.

Shifter is same styled XO, just chopped to 7 speeds instead of 10/11.

Rear deraileur is very similar, with it also being optimized for the 7 speed cassette, and it will be availalble in 2 different cage lengths.

It''s scary how fast the 2013 season came and went. Then again, with all the action, nail biting contests and heart stopping moments, it''s no surprise that the year flew past. Surrounded by the heated battle for the FMB World Tour title, both CANYON riders, Thomas Genon and Anton Thelander had their best season to date. One year ago, they had their first ride on the new CANYON ''Stitched'' dirt bike and from there they toured the globe, competing at the biggest competitions on the FMB World Tour calendar. These included: Red Bull Berg Line and X Games Munich in Germany, Crankworx Les Deux Alpes in France, Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx in the Canadian Whistler as well as Red Bull Rampage in the desert of Utah. 2013 was packed with highlights but the new season recap clip summarizes their season and re-lives their best, podium winning runs.

Bikepark Leogang is one of the international bike spots, every mountain biker has heard of. It is the spot, where the first double backflip was landed during a contest, it is the spot were Greg Minnaar regained his world championship title after 10 years. And it is also the spot where Stevie Smith and Gee Atherton had their legendary final battle for the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup overall title in 2013. Let''s roll back over some of the highlights from the season with these captured moments.

Short but intense! That's how you could best describe a summer season in the top Italian bike resort, Livigno. 2013 was indeed intense: after a spectacular show by Danny MacAskill at the Riva bike festival, presented by Livigno Feel the Alps, and a gourmet bike tour in the Alta Rezia region, Livigno ended its season with the spectacular event - the FIAT Nine Knights contest.

With the depature of Contour from the personal camera market it seemed that GoPro was walking away with it all to themselves. But then Sony released a camera, which seems to be good, but i think it will end up hidden in the mess of other products that they make.
