Beyond Borders: Chatting about injury, racing, and alternative medicine with Alanna Columb



In this episode, we talk with Alanna Columb. Alanna is an MTB rider from New Zealand who entered the game late, battled to get onto the WC Circuit, and then had one of the Gnarliest crashed I have ever heard about.

We chat about racing at the world cups, the stresses of being a privateer, alternative medicines, and the healing process involved from her injury.

Episode 39: Chatting about freeride, transitioning to MTB and everything in between with Mike Ross



In this episode, we are joined by Mike Ross, the guy who is singlehandedly progressing freeride and speed and style in Australia. Starting in BMX he built a super successful career and as he fell out of love with it he discovered MTB. After falling in love really quick, his progression has gone through the roof. We chat about heading to Crankworx, the transition to MTB, and his feelings about the two scenes.

Huck 2020 Competition



 

2020 has been a terrible year throwing uncertainty into all of our lives; this is why we are saying HUCK2020!!!

We would like you to join us in saying Huck 2020 with us by Hucking your bike as hard as you can. 

To celebrate the end of the year and for everybody to send it off with their greatest Huck, Beyond The Tape has gathered some sweet sponsors and holding an epic competition. 

When is it? 

All Entries must be posted between the 1st and 25th of November 2020.  

How do you enter? 

First, you upload a 10-30 second video of your Huck to Instagram (no stories) 

Next, you follow @beyondthetape.podcast, @nsdynamics, @hucktheworldco, @krushoz, and @revolutionmtbmag

When you upload, you must also tag the above in your post along with using the hashtag #huck2020

How is it judged?

Technicality: This criterion will judge the takeoff, terrain, landing, and overall skill needed for the Huck. 

Huckwittery: The size of the Huck, the sound you make when you land, the sketchiness, and overall spirit of the Huck. 

Scenery: This will judge where the Huck is located and the overall look of the Huck. For example, a huck out the front of your house won’t be regarded as favourably as a huck in the forest. 

All categories carry the same weight, so if you send it massive with a tech landing, it will outdo a simple small huck in the best location. 

How will a winner be decided? 

On the 25th the top 16 videos will be decided. Based on their similarity, they will be paired with a rival. Using an Instagram poll you, the fans will judge on the top 8, then the top 4, then 1st 2nd, and 3rd.
