The Spirit of Enduro! Those guys nailed it. Spinal Tap level. The "Enduro Joke" is officially over as of now. No one can top that.

@ bakenbikin Not hatin man. I'm more stoked on the Wide Open event than anyone! That's exactly what I'm saying, it IS Bicycle Motocross. My comments were intended to unite, and show people that it's not what bike you ride, but how you ride it that matters. I ride a 20" dirt jump bike, 24" race cruiser, 26" flow trail/4x/slalom bike, 26" fs trail bike, and I'm saving for another mini-dh/park bike. Riding different bikes on a variety of terrain helps me become a better rider. On the trail bike I find the natural rhythm through the rough sections, and power wheelie out of corners because of my BMX perspective. On the BMX track, I have better strength and endurance from riding my trail bike. My point in bringing up the history is that we should all ride more dirt and not let categories divide us. When I put a suspension fork on a 26" cruiser in 1998 and started building downhill trails with steep doubles, nobody where I lived understood what I was doing. Then I saw the MTB movie Chainsmoke, and I knew that BMX style mountain biking was going to start happening in a big way. Now we have MTB parks, slopestyle, 4x, and jump trails popping up everywhere, and It's awesome! Just remember it's because of bmxers getting on mountain bikes that this progression began. It started on the mountains, and now with Wide Open it has come full circle. If you race DH, 4x, or slalom, try BMX. It will make you a better mountain biker. And you don't need a BMX bike to do it. Oh, I got most of those photos from here http://www.bmxsociety.com/topic/24729-mel-stoutsenberger-history-of-bmx-photos/

Ha ha! Your ignorance of history is not your fault, kiddies. It's not really taught on sites like this. Don't take my word for it, ask Mick Hannah, Fabien Cousine, Mark Weir, Joe Lawwill, or Miles Rockwell. They have all ridden my trail, and will agree with me. http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/10839280/

Brilliant? Maybe. Definitely cool, but by no means original. This is Bicycle Motocross. More like the way it was in the 70's, but scaled up. There used to be downhill, high speed, loose tracks with long jumps in early BMX. This is where all styles of mountain biking that involve jumps and berms come from, not Klunking. Know your roots, Bicycle Motocross isn't a type of bike, it's a style of riding.

I thought goin' at first, but it looks like the dust is in the background relative to the rider, so I say comin'.
