The city of Taxco, Mexico, was founded on silver — the mining and refining of the precious metal into jewelry, silverware, and other silverwork. The mines are gone, but the twisting medieval streets and alleys of the picturesque town remain. Taxco is the site of the 2016 Taxco Downhill urban mountain bike course, where 40,000 people come to watch the top riders in the world fly — literally — through the streets. Chris Van Dine, Antoine Bizet and Wil White load up on GoPros and take a reconnaissance lap of the streets of Taxco.

The Gel-Lyte III silhouette is an Asics legend that was first introduced in 1990. The sneaker remains relevant on its 30th anniversary thanks in part to advanced materials and technologies while keeping what made it famous firmly intact.
