I'm a Trail rider through and through.
I'm never satisfied, Thus I am constantly searching for the perfect trail bike. This being the case. I spend lots of time and money demoing bikes. I generally don't comment on bikes unless I've ridden them. Still haven't ridden a 9er that I'd buy over a little wheeled bike but I still demo a bunch every year.
I sacrifice pretty much everything for the sake of owning really nice bikes.

Opinion - Cater To Your Weaknesses
I wouldn't say that the trails that the BCBR is run on are overly technical. But they are an absolute blast to ride. For me the most brutal thing about the race is the Steep as hell fire road climbs. But even with those brutal climbs and as weak of a climber as I am. I defiantly wouldn't choose a hardtail for the race. I am well aware of my weaknesses and riding a hardtail at race speed is defiantly one of them. I see no reason what so ever to suffer all day. The BCBR is all about the Single track. Really good single track. Take your trail bike and laugh at the roadies

Economic Impacts of Mountain Biking Tourism
The Go Pro Games in Vail brought in over 5million in revenue to Vail in less than a week! Granted its more than biking but that kind of income doesn't go unnoticed. Down here in Eagle we hosted the Colorado State mountain bike championships last fall and the net revenue for the weekend was over 500 thousand for the weekend. The locals that complained about the town spending 50 grand on the trails needed for the races. Quickly changed their tune. We got together and built a BMX track as well, and it's always packed every Thursday for races. Both my son and daughter race BMX and the skills they've learned are paying huge dividends on the trails. Love riding bikes with my kids. Build great single track and we will come. We've already done 4 bike trips this year and have a few more scheduled.

Video: Emily Batty Pedals To The Podium
I don't grip the bar very hard. A set of grips usually lasts me a few seasons. Braking with my index finger just doesn't feel right and I found I was over gripping the bar. Over gripping the bars stiffens up your whole upper body. Not good for biking where flowing with the trial is what makes you go faster. In the end it's what works best for you not me. Ride on and I'll keep flipping off the world when I have to slow down
