Will Olson, RIP
It actually doesn't even have to be that bad of an impact when it comes to getting hit in the chest. A sudden hard impact to the chest can simply cause the heart to stop. Looking on google I think its "commotio cordis" and it happens if the chest is impacted near the heart at a certain point in the cycle of the heart beat causing the heart rhythm to be disrupted. There have been quite a few deaths to baseball players in recent years from this when they are struck in the chest with line drives or hit by pitches.

Results: World Cup DH Mont Sainte Anne - Qualifying
Aa soon as I saw the times thars what I immediately thought. That's the only logical reason for guys like minnar, Gee, Bruni etc to be so far back.

Photo Epic: Brandon Semenuk's One-Shot as Seen by Sterling Lorence
This segment is just awesome. I'm not even sure what exactly it is that makes it so awesome. It's not the gnarliest line, and the tricks aren't anything amazing (not for Brandon anyway). It's just everything. The smoothness of the one shot, the smooth casual style that Brandon puts down on the run, the music scenery.... It all just works. I've watched it about a dozen times and it doesn't get old.

Devinci Spartan Carbon XP - Review
No disrespect to you but you own the bike, and everyone always loves their own bike and thinks its the best bike. Nobody comes on Pinkbike and comments about how crappy their bike is or the things it doesn't do very well. Its like people on Facebook who always think their kids are the cutest kids. That's fine and I can't blame them for thinking that, but it doesn't make it true. At the end of the day I'm talking about the reviews I see here (and other sites) which generally always conclude with a "decent for what the bike is" type of conclusion about climbing. I'm just saying I think its time to just consider "what the bike is" prior to the review and evaluate it as such. A bike geared for enduro racing is just going to be poor at climbing as its only made to do the bare minimum it needs in order to get a rider to the top.

Devinci Spartan Carbon XP - Review
It seems like in every review of these longer travel "Enduro" or "all mountain" bike the same basic conclusion is reached in terms of climbing, and that is something along the lines of what was said here. "It climbs relatively well for what it is" or something along those lines. When these bikes are reviewed (which are essentially mini DH bikes), why not have it just be implied that these things blow at climbing, like when a DH bike is reviewed, and not even bother trying to sugar coat things.

Breaking News: Marzocchi to Close its Doors
That makes sense. That is exactly what I meant when I said they might sell a a certain part of the company (in this case the MTB division). But the entire Mazorcchi company as a whole is not likely being bought by anyone.

Breaking News: Marzocchi to Close its Doors
That would be great and I hope you are right but I'm skeptical. Announcing a sale is a lot more preferable to the markets than announcing a complete shuttering of a division along with a $27M dollar charge in the third quarter. It would make no sense for them to do what you are suggesting. I see know reason why they would announce something like this if they were about to announce a sale. They would simply just announce the sale. It could though be that they have deals in place to sell certain portions of the company. Like maybe they have a buyer lined up for like just the fork line, or just the US operations, something along those lines.

Breaking News: Marzocchi to Close its Doors
I think they were referring to liquidating the company, not liquidating remaining stock. They mean selling the assets of the company. The machinery, buildings, intellectual property like patents or designs etc. That being said there may be great deals to be had on the remaining stock that retailers have. People arent going to pay full price for something they may not be able to get warranty or service.

Mountain Creek's New Greenhorn Flow Trail Grand Opening
No way dude, your 5 year old should be learning on technical single track, on a hard tail. No machined trails or rear suspension until he turns 30.

Mountain Creek's New Greenhorn Flow Trail Grand Opening
Back in my day we didn't have trails. We rode through bushes and over jagged rocks and off cliffs, on fully rigid bikes, with wooden tires, up hill both ways.
