Riding on Thin Air

With the M-Class we took Kelly McGarry and Jeremy Lyttle to the highest elevation they’ve ever been to – Khardung La – and let them have the downhill ride of their lives from 18,380 feet in the Himalayas.

Best known for his breath-taking downhill footage escalating in a flip over a 72-foot-long canyon gap at Red Bull Rampage 2013, Kelly McGarry does not shy away from extremes. So we took him and fellow rider Jeremy Lyttle to the highest and most remote place he’s ever been: Khardung La – the supposedly highest vehicle-accessible mountain pass in the world at 18,380 feet (5,602 m) and let them have the downhill ride of their lives.
