Its crazy to believe but winter is already here to remind us that an awesome year is coming to an end. With the 3 feet of snow Montreal recieved in the past couple days, it feels good to watch some of the older stuff we released this year as it's full of good memories. Before this post even gets started I would like to take the time to thank all the homies involved in making The Rise what it is, all of you out there that visit the site and watch the videos and simply anyone that loves biking. I kind of had a feeling that things were slow lately so I wasn't sure how long this post will be but when I started to look for all the stuff we made this year, the list came out pretty long. So here it goes in no particular order, so sit back, grab yourself a drink and enjoy! Since the very very start, we have this Unexpected Thursday serie going on and those videos are always such a blast to produce. Here are the best episodes released this year:
Unexpected Thursday 27: Indoor session in Linz, Austria
Unexpected Thursday 29: Trip to Vegas and California
Unexpected Thursday 30: Indoor session at Taz
Unexpected Thursday 32: Montreal Street mixAside from the UT videos, we made a bunch of other exclusive edits over the year that are worth giving a second watch:
2012 Ray's MTB Roadtrip: Video & photos of our annual trip to Ray's MTB
Euro Trippin Full video: Trip to Italy, Austria and Spain
Matt Macduff Woodward West Park edit: Matt in Woodward West's indoor park
MTL Street Session: Video of a Street ride we organised in Montreal We also did a bunch of interviews with people OGs aswell as up and comers:
Aaron Chase: Interesting interview about Aaron and the roots of Street MTB
Marius Hoppensack: Rider and owner of Beddo Bikes from Germany
Brett Rheeder: Ontarian rider that finished 4th on the FMB tour this year
Jordane Dubois: Local BMXer really killing it lately
Interbike Coverage: A little coverage of this year's Interbike show There was also a lot of really good videos from all the homies but aren't TR exclusives:
Matt Macduff's Moment of Truth: Matt rides the Step up jump at Woodward West
Walter Mayerhofer's SBG edit: Walter rides his local town Salzburg
Michel Plonka Dobermann Bikes edit Filmed at le Taz last spring
Shipshaw Dam trip: The Lamas riding an enormous dam!
Jeremy Menduni Bikecheck: Jeremy talks about his new bike and rides in Ottawa

Lama Gopro mixtape: Mix of Gopro Footage from the Lama guys
Michel Plonka ILLBike edit: Michel's welcome edit
Matt Macduff - Dreams: Matt build an insane dirt park in Nova Scotia and made an edit there And finally, because we're not just about getting stuff done on the bike, we made these cooking videos just for fun and it turned out awesome. The best part about this is that one of them somehow ended up on Pinkbike's main page and got 30k views.. Internet is awesome.
