Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride Illegal Trails?
where I live there are only two "legal" trails. and several "illegal" trails. luckily its a small community where for the most part people look the other way, including the authorities. even with the occasional injury on those "illegal" trails. Luckily there is a relatively new bike association formed that is beginning to get things rolling to sanction these trails.

Awesome. More teams, more competition, more progress for the sport. Also good to see kids training on rough tracks for vids rather than just another buffed out park trail.

Hafjell Bike Park Damaged in Flood
they should embrace what mother nature has done and turn the world cup track into a completely different animal. rock gardens and technical lines everywhere.

The moto sound only sucked because two strokes are a dying breed. Shoulda been a four stroke sound. Some of the best days i have on two wheels is self shuttling to my local DH trail, ride home then jump on my moto and smash the moto trails back to my truck. MTB and moto really are a perfect compliment to each other. They both have their strong points and their weak points. There is no doubt that riding both makes you better at both. If you disagree then you are likely someone who doesn't ride both regularly or at all and therefor cant see the benefits. Theres a reason all the top tier WC DH racers also race/ride moto in their spare time. Ultimately i have no problem with people who are dedicated to mtb only. But I challenge any of you to keep a grin off your face when riding a dirt bike.
