Recharging the Soul in Pisgah
Ha! Well, I guess I'll just have to get used to the leaves. Most of the loop I was riding straight into the late afternoon soon, so that didn't help either. Think I'll try to return late march/early april is schedule permits.

Recharging the Soul in Pisgah
@SketchyD: Not sure if you will see this comment, but if you do this is a BIG Thank You for the Dupont route. I hit it yesterday and was able to follow it all to a T and it was the most fun I've had on a bike in a long while, probably since my last Fruita/Moab trip. I was so stoked on it I hit the Burnt Mountain and Cedar Rock/Big rock loop a second time, and I left happy with nothing left in the tank. I went to Brevard being more excited about Pisgah, but left loving Dupont. I want to go back to Pisgah when there aren't so many leaves. I felt like I couldn't see where I was going, and I washed out the front tire cornering on leaves a couple times. We just don't have that kind of leaf accumulation out west. Did the Black Mountain/Buckwheat Knob/Bennett gap loop and I can tell they are amazing trails. I just wanna ride them when I can SEE the trail. Anyway, the whole area Rocks (and roots, if you get my drift). After one trip, I'd definitely put Brevard area up there with the best destinations out west. Can't wait to go back.

I was surprised Aston didn't also mention the option of buying a GT Sanction. If the commenter hasn't bought the bike yet, why not look at the longer, slacker Sanction to begin with? Though you better be riding some pretty gnarly stuff most of the time to need the Sanction. The Force and handle most anything that a non pro-level DH or Enduro guy would ride on a regular basis.

Thanks for the advice! That's enough to get me through the first trip, anyway. Hopefully there will be many more

Recharging the Soul in Pisgah
Just moved to Atlanta (from CO) and plan on a Brevard trip this winter. Probably only have 2 full days, 3 max. Be nice to hit both Dupont and Pisgah, but obviously time is limited. Can anyone suggest the "must-do" trails on such a short trip? I'm no pro, but I'm pretty advanced, so can do the techy stuff. But like the flowy, too.

So this is what a normal, good rider looks like, huh? I don't mean that as a slight to the rider, he's good. But you get so used to pro, WC level riders on PB videos you forget what most advanced riders look like. Anyway, nice video. L2A looks amazing.

Course Preview: UCI World Cup Round 3, Fort William
No joke. He's super humble (in this one, Claudio says his riding buddy will be faster, then Claudio smokes him). But I wonder how much faster the pros are? I mean, he's not putting together a whole race run, but in some of those sections I think he's gotta be getting close to matching some of the best guys speeds. If the pros are still a lot faster than Claudio, then I have even more respect

Rider Perspective: Kilts Off At EWS 2 In Peebles, Scotland
Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but if not I definitely agree. Weird as it is, videos get boring. More fun to read and check pics

Video: This Is Peaty - Season 3 Trailer
First off, I have to admit that last part is funny as shit. But in Gee's defense, he does have a camera on him (as someone else pointed out), and he might just be a bit of a patriotic guy and wants to show some respect for the national anthem. Nothing wrong with that. He does seem a bit square, but there are plenty of reasons he doesn't just want to bust up laughing during the national anthem while on camera. Though I probably would have...
