2013 Red Bull Rampage: Impressions
To summarize the riders, what this competition needs is: 1. More time to build and practice 2. More prize money 3. A better way to deal with weather delays 4. Some support for the builders 1. I don't see why this is a problem. People talk about local advantage, but how about 2 weeks instead of 3 days? I think all the riders would happily spend 2 weeks down there. 2. This comp received some large coverage this year, and I think networks, sponsors etc have a decent amount to lose if people lose interest.It shouldn't be too difficult to drum up some more cash, especially from Red Bulls deep pockets. There is talk of having more of this style of competition which provides opportunity for efficiencies, better marketing etc. 3. This one is a bit of an issue. The only thing I can think of is to have the comp on a Saturday, and make Sunday a reserve day. If you are allowing more build and practice time prior to the event, then having it on a Saturday shouldn't be a problem. 4. I dunno about this one. In pretty much every sport, the competitor takes care of his/her own support crew. It is not up to the organizers to take care of them. Any other useful suggestions?

Just the Tip: Coast Gravity Park
Sign up for this next year http://www.capilanou.ca/mbo/ My guess is, you will end up building trails there (and making exactly nothing).

No, I don't think it is officially open. Their crowd funding page seems to be the best place to get info right now. From what I can tell, it will be open to the general public full time in late 2014. If you buy one the passes that cost more than $50, you will get invited to special "preview" days. I don't know how often those preview days will be, but my guess is that it would be something like once a month until it fully opens. I assume they will have shuttles, or let people use their own vehicles for shuttles on the preview days until the lift is in.

Interview - Brandon Semenuk's 'Rad Company'
@rexbikes - don't be discouraged, just make it awesome. The problem was there were a lot of good films coming out, but very few great films. The good films all kinda blend in to one, whereas the great ones stand out, and are still talked about. Right now, every other person owns an HD camera, and a lot of them can come up with good creative angles. It takes a lot more than that to stand out now - new trails, new locations, new riding styles, new stories, even more creative angles etc. Don't be discouraged, just strive to make something awesome.

It wasn't a comment directed at you revboy, it applies to all the comments above, and many others on this forum.

Yeah, but what if Chuck Norris competed? What ifs are meaningless - Pilgrim was damn good, and he won.

Jared Graves' Yeti SB66C - Interbike 2013
Ghetto tubeless is where you take a tube, ideally a size smaller than your wheel (so 24" for a 26"), cut it in half so that in effect you have a rubber rim strip and a valve remaining, then do the rest as if it was regular tubeless. As for the advantages, it's cheaper, which is why a lot of people do it, but I must be missing something because I don't imagine price is a factor for this bkes setup.

The World Cup Title Fight: Form and Experience
How about we leave the lame personality speculation (for both riders, and fellow pinkbike users) to the teenage and old lady gossip mags?
