Used to manage a WC team - but after having my bank account drained to zero (and then supplementing this with money I had to spend the next three years paying off) I saw the light and now just pleb around the industry.

Video: Beyond the Bike with Jill Kintner
It has been so good to see pinkbike dedicating so much more space to female riders this last could of years. To Jill - as a father now thanks for reminding me how responsible I am for supporting and fostering my kid's dreams. I will, however, be adopting that approach you mentioned of saying straight 'A's means no hassles... That sounds like a solid deal :)

Mark Matthews Fundraiser: Winners Announced
Wow - I just took a few minutes (minutes I will never get back mind) to read your previous posts to see if maybe I had missed the sarcasm here. Unfortunately no - turns out you're just a dick

The 20 Minute Red Line - Short Track Racing at Sea Otter Classic
Callum-H - Stop - just stop. reading your comments just makes me want to alternate between whacking my head against the wall and laughing myself stupid. You are an U15 novice - this does not make you a state champion or even the chamois sweat of the state champion. You have about as much experience in elite XC riding as I do in bobsled... perhaps less as I have actually seen a bobsled! Go back to your pokemon and playing with yourself or whatever you do between writing comments on pinkbike because all the laughing is starting to hurt my guts.

Solid-Reverse Racing Team in Malaga
I can't speak highly enough of just how awesome the guys at Solid are. Back in 06 we had a team with another German brand supplying - or in this case actually NOT supplying bikes. It became a farce. The guys at Solid saw us at Willengen and I explained the issues to them, just basically venting. Straight off they said "we will give you bikes". We were registered with the UCI under the other brand, were riding in jerseys with the other brand logo all over it... These guys just didn't care! They were awesome and I am stoked to see them with such a great team and great bikes.

Australian National DH Championships - Day One Practice
Our nationals have always been an event of odd outcomes. Racers have stopped at the top of the track and waited for five to ten seconds to ensure they don't win and thus did not have to wear the national Jersey.... But this is now a thing of the past. It is great to see so many riders hitting it up ano it should be a great event.

Megavalanche at Reunion Island: Final Results
Maybe thinking of Julien Absalon? Although Remy did race XC in junior category for France, but also DH at the same time. He has been in enduro since 2004.

Video: OnTheHunt - Team CRC/Nukeproof at Hafjell World Champs
We (MTB) are a little behind the discussion regarding neck braces. Motocross riders have been at this for ages (and still going strong). A great article in Dirt Rider from last year is a good starting point (http://www.dirtrider.com/features/the-neck-brace-should-you-wear-one/) with some responses for a selection of medical and industry peeps making interesting reading as well (http://www.dirtrider.com/features/the-neck-brace-web-component/). What is pretty clear is that we are unlikely to see dollars thrown at independent medical study of the topic - thus industry study is likely to be the major source of information.

Here We Go Again: Interbike's Outdoor Carnival - Day Two
Interesting because as a CEO you don't yank out a statement like that unless you have it already sealed up. Good to see riders are maintaining their compliance with that little contract clause about "not engaging in contract discussions or agreements prior to the end of the current contract..." Bring on the off season circus!
