Downhill Track Preview - Crankworx Les Gets 2016
@MTBCAM: Given first morning of practice that grass will be gone, those bushes will be stripped back as riders come through and lines evolve. Tracks like this evolve as the race weekend goes on rather than having 1 main line dictated by either the building or the 10 years of racing that have already occurred. It's much less the mud that has got me excited about this and much more the idea of taping a wide, virgin track down a hill and letting it evolve over the course of the event. It's almost a shame this event is wet, although that'll add another dimension. You say bring on the rocks and roots, that's precisely what we should see.

Downhill Track Preview - Crankworx Les Gets 2016
People these days have got used to seeing big berms and motorway bike park style tracks, when was the last time you saw uncut spikes at a race? This track should sort out proper technical bike skills, once it's ridden in, it should look rad.

@davetrump: I'm still gutted that run took place 1 year before Freecaster started recording them, footage from it that still exists is sparing!

@skelldify: Ever seen videos of the old WCs with Peaty/Nico/Chausson/Pascal/Gracia schooling people in how to ride in the mud?

Snow Show - Les Gets Bike Park to Reopen This Saturday
SintraFreeride - one of the big eye openers for me in Whistler was how the trails were built as you've described, less braking is designed into the trail and consequently less trail damage but also you go faster as you rail each corner and jump. Definitely the way forward.

The thing is that you don't need to go to Canada, within a couple of hours of the pds are significantly more interesting and rewarding trails with less of the dreaded braking bumps. The pds has fantastic things about it, covering so much ground in a day on lifts is excellent but after 10 years of riding there and then exploring further afield you just don't feel inspired to go back. Try a day trip to Pila next time you're in the area and see what you think.

Retrospective: British Downhill Legends
There's a film about Rob Jarman, I believe he went into being a stuntman, sustained a brain injury and had to come back from that to riding. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWQKLkjNTq4

Opinion: Don't Shoot the Messenger
Don't shoot the messenger is a fair comment, it's not you or anyone at Pinkbike's fault that these changes are forced upon us effectively ruining the second hand market and forcing those who wish to upgrade to purchase new hubs/bottom brackets/frames/forks etc. However, at some point though respected institutions like Pinkbike should be inclined to bite the hand that feeds and review things like this for what they are and call companies such as SRAM/Shimano out for providing no tangible benefit at the expense of making components incompatible with riders existing bikes.
