Interview: Cam Zink Brings YT to North America
Bike Shops are just going to have to change with the times. Here in Germany some Online Bike Companies like Canyon have deals with local Bike Shops where customers can bring their bikes to. Just because they didn't sell the bike doesn't mean you can't be a customer. That attitude has definitely gotta change !

Interview: Si Paton - British Downhill Series Director
Yesterday I read that Santa Cruz Syndiate where not granted Trade Team Status by the UCI, because the riders Race gear is all different. They lose all their benefits at Events like reserved Pit space etc. At that moment I thought, "Yeah, another reason for DH to separate from the UCI and do it's own thing. But reading Si's view on the involvement and importance of the National Federation shows a completely different side and actually makes my thoughts from yesterday seem very childish :-( . Here in Germany we can do nothing without the Federations backing. I live near the Black Forest where riding on trails narrower than 2 meters is illegal - the German federation has never become actively involved in that discussion. Maybe if it did things here might change. Great work Si ! The BDS is an inspiration and it's tragic to think that I follow a Series in the UK when I live in a downhillers paradise.

Andes Pacifico Enduro Day Four: It's Not Over 'Till It's Over
Don't understand though why Fabian is taking off the Brake Caliper .. ? Back wheel out , Pads out , clean it up and put everything back in. Not nice when a race is decided like that :-(

My 2014 - 12 Months in 12 Photos with Dave Trumpore
Interesting point about the Cyclocross spectators not filming or taking pictures of everything all the time. I guess it's just a different generation and definitely more cycle conservative spectator that goes to CC Races. I find it really over the top sometime at downhill races and found myself getting sucked into taking pictures all the time too. Now I don't bother bringing a camera and find I enjoy the action much more. When I work as a race Steward at DH events everyone thinks they're a Pro Photographer and wants to stand exactly there were we don't want them :-(

Pinkbike Poll: Trail Sabotage?
Unfortunately we live in a part of the country where a lot of people believe that they have the right to block the trails against bikers :-( On average I'm getting of the bike to clean away crap on every second spin.

Video: Juli Furtado's 1990 Yeti FRO
Would I go back to riding a bike like the one I rode in 1991 ... was just like Juli's . Thumb Shifters, rigid fork, Canti's, Steal Frame, Bar-ends ..... NO WAY !! Do I go faster now, especially on really rough stuff ? Damn right I do !! 'Cause my bloody brakes work . So @Freeride-forever, you're maybe right that it wouldn't make much difference to the Results from a competition point of view. Everyone was using the same stuff at the time just like everyone now is on similar bikes. But they are going a lot faster now then back then. Why ? Cause the "Modern machinery" is a lot more dependable and controlable ! If you've never had that horrible feeling that you're actually accelerating while pulling the brakes so hard you think the levers are going to break then just be quite on this subject.
