Yeti Cycles Going Full Enduro For 2014
In my opinion, Yeti has the best race bred pedigree out there. Along with it's unique designs, it deserves a very very special place in our history. Not the mainstream brand, but definitely one of the most original, and core ones, with the best racing development program. When you think, that more or less, it's Yeti that we have to thank to for pushing up riders like: Jullie Furtado John Tomac, Colin Bailey, Jimmy Deaton, Missy Giove, Myles Rockwell, Crolyn Curl, Kirt Voreis, Joe Lawill, April Lawyer, Monkey Vasquez, Marla Streb, Nathan Rennie, Tara Llanes, Trent Lowe, Jared Graves, Jill Kintner, Ross Milan, Justin Leov, Sam Blenkinsop, Aaron Gwin, Eliot Jackson, Richie Rude. Seeing Yeti leave DH world scene, it makes me wonder about the future of DH, comparing to the mainstream Enduro. I've read over here somewhere the saying: "Enduro - the place where DH riders go to die". With all these 29'ers, weekend warior's soap operas of enduro... the future looks bright. I wonder why they forbidden Lycra. It would be great these days, along with Sam Hill on clipless in Punta Ala... Sad day for some of us... Cheers

Ask Sam Hill
Gonna give it a try with so many questions arround not sure if I'll get an answer. In the past your position was very forward on the bike, moto like, these days I see you're staying more towards the rear. The geometry you're riding should push you even more forward. Really curious on your logic about this change. Heal up well mate, and best of luck next season! Cheers

I remeber seen both of the brothers riding DH in Schladming, back in 2005, or something. They were two little kids, but smokin' fast, and VERY stilish. They both finished the 4x quallies with a backflip. And back in those days that was quite impressive. Don't know about the fitness side, but he and his brother both have the nuts and style for DH.

Aaron Gwin Joins TLD for 2013
Bad move from TLD. No dissrespect to Gwin, he's got down lot's of stuff. But style ain't one of his things. His kit needed indeed improving, but you'll see that "ya can look ugly even with TLD". Probably he'll have a 3m diameter moto helmet on too. First bad move in the history of TLD.

Video: Farewell to Sam Hill
Well, here are a few folks who shaped the sport we love today: Minnaar - consistency Barel - professional training Peat - longevity Palmer - attitude Vouilloz - focus Gwin - mind power But, As in technical abilities, I believe Sam is the best. Don't forget he was all the new school MOTO style! Yes, of course racing got more competitive, but I don't think people got faster, I believe Sam got slower. It was injuries, perhaps abit too much faime and status on his head, and lost it's focus and hunger. If he can focus, stay hungry, and pull his mental game together, you'll be seeing the old Sam back where he belongs. Don't forget, that allready, in this season, he had some: "He was the only one to hit that line". Val D'Isere, 6secs back with that crash in probably the worst place to have. Climbs, and flats afterwords... Well, in the end, racing is racing. So, Sammie, gun it in 2013!
