Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 2
@Theeeeo: @Theeeeo: because naaahh...Drew Bezanson is like every other BMXer and only does big tricks over stairs.....he isn't isn't used to doing big air tricks off ramps at all...see RedBull video Uncontainable. And I could care less about "poz'd post bro".....I'm not looking for Pinkbike internet glory, lol.

Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 2
Noticed he said "ticking them off the list".....which is what an elite BMXer is gonna do on a MTB....just go down the trick list and nail all of them after a couple tries. He's just being humble, but I bet his bag of landed tricks is already bigger than the best in the MTB game right now....

Inside Sidi Shoes
Arch supports...insoles....how about doing/showing corrective exercises so you don't have weak arches? Rather than give the customer a crutch to use for the rest of their life, why not show them exercises to gain a remaining lifetime of foot health?

Random Thoughts from Monterey - Sea Otter 2016
Fatbike ebikes are like fatgirls....you never ever want to admit you rode one, but you had a really good time when you did ride one.

#N1NO, The Hunt For Glory: Hittin' the Gym Part Two - Video
What's funny is all those movements he's doing can be replicated without those contraptions and wheels. The fitness industry has gotten so diluted with BS and "a new remarkable stability exercise" that it's nauseating. That skateboard on a ramp thing can be replicated by straight arm lat pulldowns...or simply swimming. Don't get me wrong...it's probably a very functional machine (as many fitness things are...aside from the shakeweight and other gimmicky contraptions) but the target muscles and motions/movements can probably be more easily replicated with equipment already easily available. The most explosive people outside of Oly lifters, are arguably football players. What do their workouts consist of? Old fashioned compound movements like squats, deadlifts, bench, snatch, clean and jerk and variations of those movements. Sure things like rings and other things are sprinkled in for stability muscles....but nothing replaces moving weight with arguably simple compound movements. There's a reason Olympic lifters that never train for jumping have insane vertical jumps and crazy box jump heights. Explosive power. Some of them only do like 3 movements regularly: clean, snatch, and jerk. And taking away nothing from Nino, but REAL functional strength for mountain biking...look at riders like TRA, Kenny Beleay, Vincent Hermance and the Coustelliers. Speed, power, and lifting your bike when in an odd body position strato dabbing on one leg is functional. If you take away talent, the guy who lifts heavy weights explosively will win....every. Time.

Agreed...chains do snap....tires blow off. Suspension will have an effect on tires, etc......but his mechanic should be fairly familiar as to what spec/limit the parts he's running are capable of...i.e. "running a tire pressure at 20 psi might not be such a good idea for x/y/z course but 24 psi should be a bit better..." Having been a mechanic for a rainbow jersey, I can tell you most of the time for a title race they want a new chain and new tires a couple days before, if not the night before. If brand new chains and freshly seated tires are blowing off....that's the mechanic's fault, not the rider or terrain.

So you're telling me all the other mechanicals he had during his World cup races in the past 4 years...he's going WAAAAAYYYY harder than everybody else? Seems like he has far more mechanicals than any other WC racer out there....do a little research.
