Every Wednesday we’ll be posting a round-up of videos that have caught our eye over the previous seven days. Kicking off this week’s collection is the latest trailer for Clay Porter’s 3 Minute Gaps.
Now available from iTunes, the film follows the world’s best mountain bike racers across the globe as they trained, travelled, raced and celebrated during the 2009 and 2010 World Cup seasons. All the riders you’d expect – Gee Atherton, Greg Minnaar, Aaron Gwin – make appearances in the movie, which chronicles the changing face of modern downhill racing.
Next up is a video featuring freeride stars Cam Zink and Kyle Strait, which starts out as an advert for a solar powered compass but winds up with Zink pulling off a stunning backflip on a drop in deepest Utah.
Last but not least comes a video from the rather dubious sounding Ass Savers. Stick with us on this one; their SmartAss is a folding mudguard designed in Gothenburg, Sweden that attaches to your saddle and, well, saves your ass from the rain. When it’s not raining, you can fold it away and store it under your saddle. Visit the company’s website to find out more.
