Video round-up: Canyon Strive first ride

Plus technical Alpine action and Californian sunshine

It’s Wednesday, which means our friends over at have picked three more must-watch mountain bike videos for us this week, with a first ride on a new Canyon Strive, some Alpine escapades and Californian sun thrown in for good measure.

1 That new bike feeling

Maxi Dikerhoff got straight on it when his new Canyon Strive turned up, hitting up the trails with Pirmin Hirschvogel and following it up with a healthy dose of pickup truck drifting.

Pick up snow fun!

2 Alpine riding at its most extreme

We’re not sure how these guys managed to focus on line choice with all the jaw-dropping vistas they were surrounded by! Rocky, techy and steep, this is Alpine riding at its best.

3 Good times in the East Bay

Tacky trails all year round and winter riding attire that consists of shorts and short-sleeved jerseys? Jealous, us? Frankly, yes. Bring on spring!
