Not as good as I once was but as good once as I ever was!

MUST WATCH: What If
I had a dream to have balance between play and family but needed a job that could afford me both. It took some time, planning and sacrifice along the way but eventually I was able to make it happen. With anything in life nothing is perfect. There is never enough time in a day to do everything you want but I live on a river just below Whistler on a small piece of property. We grow our some food have some animals and my 2 young daughters and wife love it. My wife is an artist and finds tons of inspiration and we are just an hour away from her home city of Vancouver. I live just minutes away from some of the best riding on the planet. I am able to dust off the old DH bike regularly, grab the 29er (sorry boys its awesome!) for some all mountain pedaling and jump on the road bike for the fondo or other great road rides. The back country skis get a regular workout and I have been enjoying learning the white water on a SUP this summer. All from my back door. My oldest daughter loves rock climbing and riding the front of the paddle board when ever possible. She even wants to start playing hockey and hopes I will coach her team. Life will only get better as my girls get old enough to ride and ski more independently and I can't wait. Like everyone I wish I could play more but I wanted to live in a place where I could get out quickly to play when I did have the time. I had a dream and I am blessed to have a family and a job that made it happen. Set a goal and make it happen!!

Video: Full Throttle
I like the ending. I was thinking how unfortunate it is to see all the hard work that trial builders put in and how the trails get worked over in video's as I see this guy blow through berm after berm. I know a lot of work goes into building and designing lines for segments but it can be hard to see some of your favorite trails getting shredded and not knowing if anyone is going back up with some equipment for some maintenance. Nice edit with a solid ending. Well done!

The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
There is a place for all bikes for sure and putting a smile on your face is the name of the game. The only thing I would add is to challenge the diehard DH bike guys that say their skill is all good to jump on a 4" bike and ride the same trails. You may be a bit slow in the gnarly sections but if you can't handle it or find it too scary, then keep riding that bike until its easier. When you jump back on your DH bike a month or year later, you will be amazed at how much faster you are. It does take skill to handle a DH rig but you will agree it takes way more skill and focus to ride that terrain on shorter travel bike. If you can only afford one bike remember that it will not be your last. Invest the time on short travel and your skills will improve.

Why No Y?
Back in the day when I was travelling around hitting races I used to think it was awesome to see a female rider. There was very few riding DH at that time so when you saw a woman riding she was typically pretty solid. They weren't "holding anyone back" even if they were a bit slower. It was inspiring to just be riding with people in general that were passionate about the sport. I also think ladies in motocross pants are sexy! What can I say. Now I have a 4 year old daughter and she has started riding a bike which is amazing. We were driving home one day and she was looking out at the mountains and from nowhere says "I can't wait to go mountain biking with you dad!" My heart still swells because there is nothing I would like more. I think this is a great article to not only give some props to the girls and women that are out their giving it their all but to help create more awareness for the ones that maybe want too but need some motivation. I know that as a father I wish there were more strong role models for my daughter so she can see what she can accomplish if she works hard. Not just women role models but acceptance and support from my brothers out there can go a long way. Treat all people with respect and the MTB world can set a great example for all sports.

Goat Style CANCELLED
You should post the local companies that did and the ones that did not support the event so we can repay the favor both ways.
