his is the brand new video from Fabio Wibmer.
It was filmed over the period of 3 months in Osttirol and it features probably one of the best street trials riding ever seen in the web.
Osttirol is one of the most beautiful places and it was just a dream to ride and film in this awesome scenery.

Watch the rough riders of Red Bull Desert Wings shake down their machines in the wilds of France.
In the Wild West, they have cowboys. In France – or specifically a small corner of southeast France, the Camargue – they have gardians. Their job is to herd cattle, on horseback, and they take it so seriously that they even wear cowboy boots, checkered shirts and big hats. You’d be forgiven for thinking that these dudes had got lost on the way to a remake of The Lone Ranger.
So, meet the Gardians of the Dakar: Marc Coma, Helder Rodrigues, Sam Sunderland and Matthias Walkner as they track down Stéphane Peterhansel, Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres, and rev up for the 2015 Dakar Rally.

Many are familiar with New Zealand's famous road, the Crown Range Pass. This public road climbs to 1,100 meters above sea level by the way of fast twisty corners and steep uphill hairpins on the way from Queenstown to Wanaka. For the first time in history, 2014's Targa New Zealand has ventured to the South Island, allowing competitors to try their luck at some of the most beautiful roads in the world. Gavin Riches, the driver of this 997 GT3 Cup car, has shipped his car all the way from Florida in order to compete in this week long event. His run through the Crown Range is now the fastest recorded run of any car during competition.
In this particular Targa, the rules operate more like a stage rally. The drivers are competing for stage time. The only difference from straight up performance rally is the fact that there is no recce for the co-driver beforehand and the cars cannot exceed 200kph without incurring a stiff penalty.
So in this case, Gavin's GT3 Cup is getting to 200kph quite quickly and driving into the corners blind. Thus the co-driver's job (Gavin's wife Amy) is to navigate the car to the stage, and then during the stage, make sure the car doesn't exceed 200kph. This is the reason behind the conversation in the car at speed being:
Gavin: "Speed?, Speed?"
Amy: "Hold. Hold. Up. Up. Hold."
The closest one can get to 200kph without going over depicts who's coming in first. It's a bit different than what we are all used to while watching in-car footage…. But it's a fun challenge to watch none-the-less.

Cyclo-what?! The internet will tell you that cyclocross is a specific type of bike racing, where conventional road biking meets off-road relay racing on a course that is part road, part mud pits, part not-your-standard-racecourse. Red Bull Velodux took that race style to the next level, putting top notch racers against a technical off-road course, with an "all-things-go" attitude towards doing whatever it takes to inch past your opponent. Check out the best action from Red Bull Velodux Switzerland!

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. After having heard several stories about the older generation missing the freedom, the joy and the mobility of cycling, Ole asked himself: "How can we get these people back on the bicycles?" Ole decided to show up at his local nursing home with a rented rickshaw. This changed his life - and the lives of the passengers and the volunteers who came across Ole and his project, "Cycling Without Age".
Ole Kassow is the founder of “Cycling Without Age” - http://cyclingwithoutage.org - an initiative which gives senior citizens the opportunity to get out of nursing homes and experience the city and the nature by rickshaw.
Because of Ole, municipalities in several cities across Denmark have now bought rickshaws for their nursing homes and a network of volunteers offer residents the opportunity to venture outside and feel the wind in their hair. This meeting of generations provides a unique opportunity for the elderly to share their stories and experiences, which are often triggered by these trips out into the local environment.
This initiative not only strengthens communities across generations, but it contributes to both physical and mental well-being of the elderly and volunteers, thus giving nursing homes and municipalities a golden opportunity to stimulate and promote health and mobility.

El Caminito del Rey is located right next to the sleepy town of El Chorro in Malaga, Spain. Construction of the one meter wide, three kilometers long walkway through El Chorro canyon started in 1901 and were completed in 1905. Rising a 100 meters above the Canyons floor, the path cuts the canyon’s giant limestone cliffs in half with another 75 meters of sheer rock jutting above it. It was originally build to provide access for workers between the hydroelectric power plants in El Chorro Falls.

A 1000km non-stop journey across the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps.
Exploration is as much about overcoming the unknown challenges of the road ahead as it is about learning of one's own physical and mental capabilities. On August 4th 2014 Mike Cotty faced the longest and hardest ride of his life, a personal challenge to see if it's possible to cycle over 1,000km and 21 mountains non-stop across the Dolomites, Eastern Alps and Swiss Alps from Conegliano, Italy, to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France. Thunderstorms during the darkest depths of the night, a bitter cold dawn on the Passo dello Stelvio, punishing headwinds and the will to overcome adversity and sleep deprivation from over 50 hours on the bike and 21,250 metres of elevation make this journey an inspiring test of human reserve.
So a few km’s and a few climbs . . . .

At 15 Square meters and completely off-grid, Brett Sutherland has constructed a true, tiny house treasure. Packed with unique, space saving design elements, Brett has created a fantastic space to both live and work.
Perhaps best of all, this was all achieved on a budget of NZ$21,000. The Tiny House was constructed on his parents property, and will soon be moved to a friends property in Bethells Beach in Auckland.
This modern tiny house is filled with treasures obtained over a lifetime of adventure, and may just be the ultimate bachelor pad.

Raglan-based international surfer, Daniel Kereopa, and his family (partner Renee, 10 yr old daughter Nia and 12 yr old son Cabe) came back to the Great Lake Taupo region and this time they brought fellow surfers, and family friends, John Armstrong, Penelope Strictland and their daughter, Malaika, with them.
The families kicked off their weekend with a lovely visit to Taupo’s weekly Saturday Riverside Market where they sampled lots of regional produce and even learned a little bit about alpaca wool spinning.
