Red Bull Joyride is in the bookstand. TSG young gun Max Fredriksson placed right behind Thomas Genon (2nd) and Brett Reeder (1st) and is now ranking 2nd at the FMB World Tour Diamond Serie. The demanding and dusty course pushed every single contestant to the limit on Sunday. Many athletes had difficulties to finish their run. But then it was Brett Reeder’s show. A score of 93.00 catapulted him into the first spot. After blowing his first run the pressure was on Max Fredriksson, who not only wanted to land on the podium at this historic event, but also preserve his outside chance at the FMB Diamond Series Title. The Swede withstood this pressure and sent a great run putting him on the verge of the 90s and scoring 89.80.

Return of the goat king. Timo Pritzel exploring Saalbach’s most rugged enduro trails

Friday, April 8th, 2016

“What does a man get alongside the luxury title of ‘Goat King’? A very appropriate living, breathing, bleating, four-legged goat for a prize. Having graciously accepted the miniature beast at the podium, Timo Pritzel had the foresight to realise that farm animals of the Austrian mountains and city life in central Berlin are not the most sensible of blends. With that in mind, however soul-crushing, the decision to leave this furry little bundle of joy behind was made. Although Timo returned the next few seasons to compete, contact was lost and his ‘kid’, if you will, long forgotten. That is until he got the call from an old friend and resort ambassador Tibor Simai – did he want to explore Saalbach’s most rugged enduro trails and sample some of the backcountry beyond the bike park?”

The year 2016 marks a new milestone in our collaboration: From now on, Sam Pilgrim will ride in TSG Apparel. He finally arrived right where he belongs.

Ramon Hunziker rides the Alps

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

This summer for sure wasn’t the best one for Ramon Hunziker`s project Rider the Alps. Rain and snow in alternation; but the rare tiny time gaps in between were ideally used to produce the 2nd episode of Ride the Alps. Once again Ramon Hunziker proves that he is a dedicated big mountain rider who prefers a craggy rock scenery up in the sky to a common trail.
