Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
what I get out of this is the usual American entitled attitude that they are the best and the only ones that matter. Yes he has won some races, and yes he is probably the best American racer ever. Does he deserve to get paid a top salary? Yes I think so, but is his self imposed worth more than what he should be paid. Probably. There are a lot of top riders that have beaten him and he only had one good season with specialized. Add to this the fact that his attitude suggests that he is only doing this to make money. If he could be top in Moto he would still be doing that. Don't think for a second that he cares significantly about our sport. Wherever he ends it will be the same as specialized. We will be lack lustre for the first 2 years until they develop the bike to suit him and then he will have a dominant season and expect a bunch more money. I don't by any means think that he is over rated but I do feel that he should not be the highest paid athlete in our sport. Just my opinion though.

YT Industries Now in Canada
People desecrate our flag every other day with a pot leaf in the middle and no one cares. A bike company puts a beaver and hockey sticks, which last time I checked were Canadian, in the middle and everyone loses their mind. Get your priorities straight people. On the bike news, now that YT is actually in Canada and we don't have to deal with the exchange rates and shipping I am much more interested in owning a Capra.

Pinkbike Poll: Should All Competitors Be Compensated at the Red Bull Rampage?
The riders get paid for film segments which in essence is putting on a show. At rampage they are also putting on a show. Therefore they should get paid a portion of procedes. However it being a contest there does need to be a reward for the winners. Red bull is making a shit ton of money off of these riders so it would be nice of them to compensate everyone fairly.

Missy Giove - Back in the Saddle
Best of luck to Missy and her wife Kristen in the hard road ahead! I remember watching her slay it when I was young and wanted to ride DH. To be able to see her kill it again at 43 gives me inspiration again! In going for a rip!

Video: The A-LINE Evolution
They straight up neutered it. But if it keeps people off of Dirt Merchant then I don't care. That is now the iconic jump trail in the park!

REVEL IN THE CHAOS - A New Brandon Semenuk Film
Crankworx is in August and they will probably premier it there. That's the reason I can think of for the release date.

Interview: Cam Zink Brings YT to North America
I agree completely! When the announcement was made that YT was coming to North America I was excited to try something different but after learning that it won't be any cheaper after all of the legalities why would I waste my time on something that I can't even sit on first.
