Video round-up: Santa Cruz Bicycles factory tour

Plus Arctic Circle adventure and riding Mount Etna

Our friends over at have picked three more must-watch mountain bike videos for us this week. We’ve got a tour of the Santa Cruz factory, an epic ride in Greenland and some all-mountain shredding on the slopes of Mount Etna – Europe’s tallest active volcano!

1 Santa Cruz Bicycles factory tour

Check out the old cannery where all of Santa Cruz’s bikes are designed, developed and assembled. No white-coated boffins here – just dudes with beards who love to ride!

Head to ChopMTB for a photo gallery from the tour. You can read a full feature about the Santa Cruz factory in the February issue (#286) of Mountain Biking UK magazine, out on Friday and available on Apple Newsstand and Google Play.

2 Arctic Circle adventure

Czech trials star Petr Kraus heads deep into Greenland for the mountain bike adventure of a lifetime. Far from shops, electricity and phone signals, this is remote biking at its best. 

Head to ChopMTB to view some photos from the trip.

3 Riding Mount Etna

There’s nothing like an active volcano to keep you on your toes! Watch top enduro racer Jerome Clementz carve his way through fields of volcanic ash at stupid speed.
