A United State of Downhill
The bottom line is there should be a west coast and an east coast series. until that time, there will not be the numbers they're looking for. Most pro racers in the US have day jobs, it's not really realistic to pretend that they can take off a month plus just to race. The cost to fly anywhere is insane, gas is finally going down, but if you know you can't make all of the races, what is the point to take a week or 2 off work to zip across the country? Seems like everyone is trying, but without a solid local series, a national series will not succeed. The USAC is complaining that small series are taking their money, but they don't seem to stepping up to support them, by requiring less fees. Personally, I don't want to pay $250+ just to race cat2 for a weekend, that's not even counting lodging, gas, etc. I'd rather spend the money on something else, and have more fun. It's very difficult for me to justify racing at all anymore, even though I'm already there supporting my wife, as she races pro, and it has nothing to do with me not being into DH, I'm as into it as ever. The thing is, if you can't convince me to race, when I'm already there, already have the bike and gear, and love DH, how are you going to convince someone who is brand new to the scene? I'll await your answer USAC.....

The Growth of Gamut USA
I've had nothing but positive interactions with Gamut over the past few years, and it's the ONLY chainguide I've run over the pas 9 years that has yet to drop a chain.

Video: Lopes and Kovarik vs Squamish
Easy killers, they announced back in May that there would be more new bikes this year. I can guarantee one will be a new DH platform of some sort. My best guess would be a 275 m9, as they had a proto back in early 2013 floating around. New bikes come with new edits.

Video: Shaun Palmer Coming Home
I find it amusing that all the haters are not even old enough to remember Palmer, but pretend to be experts on him. Sit down chumps. Put in a couple years, then you can criticize.
