POC Eastern States Cup DH: Two to Go and Three for the Money
"Leave the leaf raking for another day and come spend some quality time in the saddle before snow flies this weekend at Jiminy Peak and the following weekend at Plattekill." Because it's Plattekill, where snow can be expected at any time of the year. Heh!

Dear Red Bull: Please hire commentators who know what the hell they're talking about. Bonus points if they actually pronounce names correctly. Also spell athletes' names correctly in edits.

East Bound and Down: The World Cup Q & A
The two times I went to the Windham WC I had an hour-long drive. Perfect-that's just in my back yard. Most people I met there drove 8+ hours to watch and take part in the citizens' races. A couple flew in from across the country or down from Canada. They had the 4X race the first time the WC was at Windham, but it cost way too much money for them to do it again the subsequent years. And yes, the 4cross race was a giant hillside party.

East Bound and Down: The World Cup Q & A
Good one, Brice! It takes a lot of balls and a lot of commitment to pull off an event like this, and to keep doing it despite the financial loss says a lot. The folks at Windham are doing a great job; I can't wait to be on the east coast for it next year.

East Bound and Down: The World Cup Q & A
Windham (like many other places worth riding) is tough to enjoy properly without local knowledge. There's this thing called the internet. On this thing called the internet you can look up this other thing called the local bike shop. You can talk to the guys at aforementioned business and they will probably tell you where to camp, where to ride, and might even guide you around for the price of a six pack. There's killer riding in Windham, just over the hill at Round Top, and an hour west in Oneonta. All 3 places have people who love to show visitors around the trail systems. You just need to do the homework before rolling through town to get the best experience.

Video: Peoples Bicycle Presents Welcome to Beacon
Eastcoast: 1. What they're hiking up is STEEP! Those trails are training ground for some Pro DH racers who shuttle/hike it all the time. 2. Shooting a video all day is exhausting work, as you're sprinting all-out for every take. You don't want to ride back uphill between takes, even if you do have the gas left to do so. 3. What bikeshopstaffer said. All the guys in this video are beasts who are racing pro enduro and/or DH and doing damn well at it.

Video and Report: POC ESC Enduro Cup #4 at Plattekill Mountain
Those ESC folks sure know how it's done. Had a blast racing at Platty and Killington last year, can't wait to be back on the Beast Coast to race the ESC again.
