We then head across to Portugal for the launch of Canyon’s impressive new gravity and trail bike range. You’ve probably heard about the crazy big new bike Park that’s being built down in Maydena, TAS? Well we went and experienced the epic’ness first hand. What if we then told you we’ve lined up 13 of the absolute biggest names in gravity racing to share with you their tips and advice in our ‘The Art Of Cornering’ feature? Oh yes.
