For the 3rd consecutive year, The Rise successfully completed a 16-day journey known as the Partymaster Tour. If you’re not familiar with the Partymaster Tour, it consists of the whole The Rise Freestyle MTB Team touring around Quebec and Ontario on board a custom bus with their bikes and camping gear.
For 2019, invited guests Tom Kilcoyne (GBR), Max Otzelberger (DEU) and Pavel Alekhin (RUS) joined our team riders, bringing an awesome amount of diversity within the riding styles. Even if some of the guys had never met before, everyone quickly got along and this same vibe carried the riding sessions to an all-time high. The level of riding was absolutely mind-blowing and we can’t wait to show you everything that went down. Ranging from indoor parks to lake jumps and rugged street spots, the locations visited this year did not disappoint. The crew spent most of the tour in the province of Quebec which is often overlooked for Freestyle MTB, yet offers some truly unique places.
And to make it even better, the Partymaster Tour hosted no less than 8 rising music bands at these same locations while the riding occured. In Trois-Rivières for example, a 10-feet high stage was set up right beside the dirt jumps! You could feel it in the air when rock band Blue Cheese started their sound check that this was going to be something else. A few riders were jumping to warm up already, but the rain came in heavy which put an end to the jam and forced the crew to move the band over to the main stage. Just like in 2018, a complete web-series will be released covering the 2019 Partymaster Tour in it’s entirety.
The Rise is proud to count on support of Le Trou du Diable and Industry Nine for making the Partymaster Tour a reality. Stay tuned for the complete web series!
Some of the finest street riding in this new one from Tom Kilcoyne & friends! Tom recenly went to Paris for a few days with his BMX friends and invited Jeremy Menduni and Max Otzelberger to tag along. The result is a 7-minute video where the beautiful Paris architecture becomes the perfect playground for these guys. Highlights include some crazy tech tricks and a street flair! Well done boys!
Matt Macduff is back at it with a banging video where he rides Street and Dirt better than ever. Since his crash on the Loop of Doom back in 2016, Matt appeared in various video projects but this is his first project where he mixes the two disciplines again. Filmed all over the world during the last 3 years, his latest video proves once again that Matt Macduff is on top of his game!
Filmed by Matt’s closest friends

Today, we are very blessed to present you the latest video from our own Jeremy Menduni. I could go on and explain the who, what, where and whens behind such an amazing result, but I’ll let the man himself tells you about it:
“About 2 years ago I started filming for a video that I will be stoked to look back on when I’m older. After many long hours at work, I was lucky to travel to some pretty amazing places with some even more amazing people! I filmed in France, Spain, Netherlands, Brazil, USA and Canada and today I’m really excited to show everyone of you the final product!
Thank you so much to all my sponsors for making sure my bike is always dialed, to everyone who’s helped with filming, to everyone who let me crash on their couch, and to all the homies I met abroad! You guys are the best! ❤️”
