Intense Spider Pro – Review
I don't want to buy a bike thats great for a racer though. Reviews should have a good mix of input to get a truly balanced outcome.

Birzman Travel Tool Box - Review
I've used those X-Tools kits and whilst they're good the quality is not... but then you get what you pay for. Always worth have good quality tools. There is nothing more annoying than breaking a tool when you trying to use it :)

Enduro2 2015: Dates and Information
"June 2015 is the date for Enduro2, a new 3-day all-mountain adventure bike race that puts a fresh spin on enduro. www.trailaddiction.com/enduro2" "...dates chosen at the end of June that could easily be made into a long weekend..." ;) Although to be fair you do have to click the link to get the specific dates.

Enduro2 2015: Dates and Information
Think you might have misread the context there chap. This is a 'new' event means just that... it doesn't say anywhere that this is an entirely new concept of competition. Otherwise the adenoidal would get all upset because 3 legged races are similar. There are many enduro style events going on but as this is a different approach the term 'fresh' is not inappropriate- if the word unique had been used you might have had a point to make.... as it is, it seems you're just jumping on a couple of phrases, taking them out of context and then trying to make a big deal out of it. :)

Whistler Bike Park Coaches Camp 2015
Yeah I agree... although the CTC course offered here is not a mountain award. If your working with it in actual mountains you'll be well out of your remit and Mr Insurance won't have your back. http://www.ctc.org.uk/courses-and-training/faq/terrain-definitions-for-mtb-courses However this course isn't 'working in Whistler' it is just 'training in Whisler', which won't quite have the same ring on you CV. Besides I wouldn't consider the CTC trail leader as bonus material- it is very basic... the technical leader award would be far more appropriate. I am a massive fan of the French guiding scheme, not so much of their blatant and racist elitism and refusal to admit the existence that another country can have similar qualifications... despite signing up to EU legislation that states otherwise. Hence why trailAddiciton are pushing for a change. :) Although the Frenchies do have some massive flaws, for example why the hell should I have to be a qualified skier to coach and guide mtb in the Alps? We can't even agree in the UK to have a standard for mtb coaching/guiding so a worldwide one is impossible. Too many people want a cut and have ulterior motives. CTC do have a lot of bolt on coaching awards to cater for all kinds of disciplines now though... I've personally don't value these however as all the good coaches I've worked with are good because of their experience not because they've read a book or been told how to do it.

I really hate terms like 'joey'. Its quite amazing that its uses is encouraged- so unprofessional to publicly stereotype paying clients that way

2 countries is not even close to being worldwide eh. You're right though, you can't use the CTC trail leader in the US/Canada so it begs the question as to why its offered here... surely something more relevant would be applicable and would go someway to justify the cost.

Thats not really 'worldwide' recognition is it jonnyboy. Whereas with the UK based CTC quals, I've worked legally in Europe, the Middle East and UK.
