Whistler Village Randoms: Crankworx 2016
@WAKIdesigns @adrennan: from my experience, trailstars snakeskins/grid/exo/grid aren't cutting for fast rocky trails, destroyed them all. Maybe Super Gravity and Double Down would be fine but that remains to be seen. Only tire I had luck with so far is the Michelin Wild Rock'r 2 Reinforced (~1000g though but worth it). No SG for me though as schwalbes 2.35 are too big to fit my rear triangle if I can't manage to keep my rear wheel 100% true. DD was hardly available for 26" last I checked, maybe I'll have a go at them when they start getting to the shops.

EWS Race Tech: Jared Graves' New Specialized Tires
@makripper: Schwalbes are the ones running bigger to my experience, I guess they measure casing width instead of knob to knob. My MM 2.35 is significantly bigger than the kenda/spesh/michelins that I tried, who were very close to each other.

Mont Sainte Dan: Finals - Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2016
I say who gives a shit about the olympics, seriously? Every extreme sport I've done, people were always talking about about getting them to the olympics as if it was the end game and what exactly has it done for those sports who made it? And people are already whining enough about the UCI... Something tells me they won't be much happier with the IOC on top of it. There's probably many reasons why DH isn't a discipline but it would probably be a good start if the UCI had a proper DH circuit instead of a handful of races too.

Quest: Road Tripping in New Zealand with Tito
Yeah, when I was there, it definitely felt like Wanaka had a LOT of potential for many epic rides but we didn't have much time to explore, we only did one massive ride and I really wished we could stay there longer. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it is important to note to people who are seeing this that most of the stuff he's doing isn't the mainstream trail networks everybody rides, with easy access and a map. I think I'm probably not too far from the truth if I say 95% of the NZ riders probably never rode any of this and it is going to take quite a bit of preparation and work to hunt these trails down if you're travelling from abroad and looking to do this kind of riding.

Québec Stop added to Osprey Canadian National Enduro Series
MSA is an exception as they're well known for their unexisting maintenance though. Still a fun mountain. I'll take a blown out trail over a shitty flow trail any day.

East Bound and Down: Quebec, Canada
@Canadmos: Oh I agree, I spent over ~150$ just last month in riding passes and I own a DH lift access pass too and it was well worth it in most cases. I was just saying that some areas have a lot of free trails contrary to what "noobs" implied.

Depends on where you live, I have like 10 networks within 45 minutes of my house that are free. They're nowhere near as developped/maintained as the pay-to-ride ones though.

East Bound and Down: Quebec, Canada
We went to sentiers du moulin / Vallée bras du nord 2 weeks ago. Sentiers du moulin was a big hit for us. Technical ups and technical downs, so it is fun all over. There are easier options for beginners but the more advanced riders will get a run for their money too, which is rare in a "XC" network these days. Can't wait to go back. Vallée bras du nord, sector Shannahan is really great. The Neilson (the staple trail) climb isn't all that great (mostly gravel roads but grande ourse is a lot of fun) but it is quite quick and the trail itself is worth it. The "decently technical/different without being dangerous" kind, which I feel is the sort of trail most network seem to lack. Really enjoyed that side of the network, to the point where if we would have known what we now know, we'd would have spent a second day there. We'll be back for sure. The saint-raymond sector is more the "flowy" side of things and honestly, I don't feel it offers much different riding than any other flow trail area, which is cool if you're a local but it is something I find has been plaguing networks when traveling. It was alright, nothing more. The Roquemont restaurant had great food and at an affordable price, I feel it is a must if you're in the area. Great way to finish your ride. Couldn't hit MSA due to weather/time constraints, maybe next year!

Brain Injuries in Mountain Biking - Are We Doing Enough?
Oh I have nothing against the FoTM concept, it is very entertaining. I was just commenting about what could drive some people to hit trails/features way above their league in the first place, long before the video actually makes it to pinkbike. I highly doubt people break their bones and ruin their bike season to possibly win a backpack.
