Good question Collin, I remember that shoot being particularly stressful, so it was far from being blissful. The lines were so challenging and dangerous that in order to ride them successfully I did need some flow, but that flow wasn't pure and free it was laced with fear and stress. Does that make sense? It's not the kind of riding or flow I'd choose to engage in again, though I was pumped and proud to have accomplished that filming shoot!

So when you're going for the Enduro 'Charing' mindset do you think there is a time penalty like there was for me when compared to the 'Flowing' mindset? I do agree, it think it's different for everyone, but getting familiar with your typical or normal mode is useful to know. Ride ON!

Opinion: Further Faster - Thoughts on the Coming E-Ride Revolution
What an exciting perspective pushing discussion. Bjorn & Mike, thanks for representing the two polarities and for sitting-with the discomfort and potency of the comments. I learned a thing or two chasing Bjorn on his ebike; on technical climbs, he'd elegantly roll on up slippery and rooty sections while I spun out and dabbed; so I visualized applying the same steady and consistent power that an ebike motor produces during my pedal strokes and had some great success. Knowing Bjorn personally, I also learned that his passion for his ebike is genuine and deep, it's my sense that what charges him up is the desire to make this technology available for the right people in hopes that it'll contribute positively to their lives like it is to his. Now there are finer details and valid points of argument in the comments above, and those details that can be worked out when and if need be, but big picture, anyone who is willing to risk reputation, image, and finances in order to pursue and share a passion that is personally meaningful gets my vote of confidence.

Red Bull Rampage: Catch-22
Thanks Benyaks, and fatlarry, what comes to mind in response to your thoughts is that humans are complicated, there's always more going on than meets the eye. Who knows what an athletes life history has been and why they do the things they do. By objectively observing them we can only know so much, and nowhere near enough to make any conclusions about whether they're doing it right or not. So in a coaching relationship I wouldn't try to talk a rider in to doing or not doing something, but I would ask them a variety of questions that might enable them to talk themselves in to either doing something or not. Often athletes have a felt sense about something, but until they have an opportunity to put it in to words with another human being that sense won't have a chance to be acted upon. For instance an Olympian I worked with felt through his whole being that he wanted to retire, but it wasn't until he put this felt sense in to words that he was actually able to admit to himself that retirement was the right thing to do and thus take the actions and make the announcements necessary. Hope some of that makes sense and answers your question Larry.
