Northwest Cup - Round 1: Course Preview
Like I said -- video can be deceiving when it comes to courses. Add in the rain everyone's talking about and it sounds like a damn good time. Can't wait to see the photos.

Northwest Cup - Round 1: Course Preview
While I think everything generally looks less gnarly on film, this course does indeed seem pretty pedally... But I know there are different courses for different cats. Is this the Pro course?

Video: Geoff Gulevich On Fox News
Great exposure for our sport, yes. Great 'reporting' or 'anchoring'? F*ck no. The anchor failed to ask Geoff pertinent questions about the sport, instead focusing on the minute details... Who hired that guy!!? However, way to go, Geoff. You sounded well-spoken and professional. :)

Keep your inane political crap out of it, please. This has nothing to do with the ACA. Also: Kyle Strait was on the Weather Channel, not Fox Newz.

How To Save Downhill Racing... And Downhill As We Know It.
Thanks, @slidways! You make a lot of good points about the marketing aspect, and I agree with you -- we need more marketing and more promotion, but more than that, we need ENGAGEMENT. As a sport, cyclists are generally elitist and snubby. We need to shed that reputation and embrace the change that comes with adaptation... We need to embrace the newbies and the mainstream and pull them in by showing them why we love bikes so much. We have to create a relationship with our audience before they'll embrace our sport.

DH isn't going 'bye bye', however... It's not going anywhere. Freeriding and racing are two very different things, and mountain biking needs both of those, regardless of what people might say.

How To Save Downhill Racing... And Downhill As We Know It.
But see, if Big Bear and Mammoth don't get increased traffic or host downhill events, they'll close -- operating costs are too high. My point isn't that downhill isn't growing... It's that it's not growing sustainably. A sport built on profits from particpant fees and sponsor dollars isn't a healthy sport, not without new customers. And at the price of a buy-in for downhill? Those customers are few and far between. My point is that actual downhill is, for the most part (outside of the core, ie Pinkbike members), a spectator sport. It always has been. Pretending that it's an 'Everyman' sport is only killing DH, and marketing a lie.
