2016 California Enduro Series, Round 5: Ashland Mountain Challenge - Recap
@geerumm: I guess I just got pride in where I live, and this area is overlooked often. Plus sarcasm is hard to pick up in text, i know. not my photo just a random google photo.

Pit Walk - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
The question is did Nigel ever actually love an air shock? They feel like poo compared to coils.

Pit Stop: Leogang DH World Cup
@nismo325: Except the top cap is visibly different than what they show on the website. Theres zero need and financial justification to change the layout of the top cap unless they've changed something internal that corresponds with the top cap.

Keeping It Fresh - Opinion
@metaam: makes sense...sadly. I do know one rider in my area that refers to all the new easy straight bypasses as the "race line". I want to throw dirt at him when I hear it lol.

Pit Stop: Leogang DH World Cup
based on the Ohlins sticker at the bottom of Braytons fork, its likely and air spring. So I suspect one of those top cap screws hides an air valve. Or maybe both (1 pos. 1 neg). Or one is a bleed screw for internal unwanted pressure. very common in the moto world.

Claudio's Course Preview, Leogang DH World Cup - Video
the taping looks brutally narrow in places. Heres hoping for a dry race day, otherwise we might see a LOT of DQs.

Keeping It Fresh - Opinion
about to turn 32. havent lost any speed or aggression yet. Biggest thing I've noticed versus being mid 20s is how quickly i lose fitness, and how hard it is to gain fitness. riding just DH used to be enough. Now I have to pedal and climb and push myself to stay fit and make gains. Otherwise still showing the local young punks whats up ;) Oh, but I am getting crotchety at the young punks smoothing out the trails and straitening twisty sections. can someone explain why the new kids are afraid of tough sections? lol
