Mass Start Downhill Racing? Inaugural Pinnacle Bike Championship
Might be cool, but really - why? Is this an attempt at broadening the racing aspect of mtb'ing? I think what would help more would be putting more effort in to an already established genre, like DH (RedBull is doing a killer job). Adding a new race format every two years not only shows inconsistency, but demonstrates that the sport has no direction and is trendy. Competition/Racing should cater to the athletes, not the spectators.

Bitches Brew - Going Mainstream Can Make or Break an Emerging Sport
Continued: I'm guessing/hoping the author's personal experiences of being scared and needing acceptance are not an accurate reflection of the total mountain bike community. Again, a bit of elitism, "vibing" (really? vibing?) or hazing... all that - are part and parcel in many activities. Not saying it makes it the right way to act, but at the same time, I doubt those attitudes are as rampant as alluded to in the article. I for one, don't necessarily believe that mountain biking needs to be MORE mainstream, but I also believe it has been mainstream for quite some time. Once an item or product hits walmart in some form, you may as well accept the fact that it's mainstream. And they've been selling their idea of what mountain bikes are for quite a long time. With the advent of "flow" trails and rampant trail sanitization catering to the lowest common denominator, I'd say noobs have it better now than ever. The article has some nice ideas, but I think it makes a poor judgement on the current atmosphere of the mountain biking community. /rant. ;)

Bitches Brew - Going Mainstream Can Make or Break an Emerging Sport
"Mountain Biking" has got it pretty good right now, IMHO... Crazy technology, the best bikes that have ever been created and ridden, expanding trail access and a crazy (growing) number of bike parks. Maybe "mainstream" is not the best thing for it... Vibe - as described in the article, exists in all walks of all outdoor activities, its not unique to cycling or mountain biking. Maybe the author is different, but when I see someone struggling with their equipment on a trail, or if they appear lost - I do my best to try to help them. Most of the people I ride with would do the same. Often times, these noobs are invited to come on a ride... Maybe the author and her friends are different. However I find it hard to believe that the majority of riders or shop employees would go out of their way to give others a hard time in such a circumstance. "cycling in general is one of the top three worst industries to be 'the new guy' " - got a link to ANY proof regarding that? That the author is easily intimidated (and just generally afraid of things) by others is on her. Not everybody is so fearful of the unknown. There's a lot of "We" getting thrown around here that does not necessarily apply to the majority of riders

Certainly the fact the he's been at for 15 years, and has not evolved in his "craft" one iota should say something. Sure it's not easy, but not being good at it, and it "not being easy" are not the same thing.
