10 Tips: How to Train a Trail Dog
Well right off the bat I would say you might need to consider that 3-4 mile rides aren't really short as far as the dog is concerned. They are running, not riding a bike like you are. Your dog may just not be able to handle what you want her to do.

10 Tips: How to Train a Trail Dog
I'm with you, I'm just not a fan of dogs on the trails. I just think it's dangerous for both the people riding the trails and the dogs themselves. I own three dogs but have never considered trying to train any of them to go riding with me. I just wouldn't be comfortable with it even if they were well trained. No matter how well trained they are it down mean every person on the trail is. I mean if some asshole were to be riding out of control and potentially hit me its one thing. As a rider I know what to be alert for. I know I'm on a bike trail and understand the potential hazards. My dog on the other hand would not. All he would know is that he is supposed to stay close to me. And if anything ever happened to my dog on the trail I'm not sure I'd forgive myself for putting it in danger like that.

Claudio's Course Preview: World Cup DH, Val di Sole
I always watch the replays and never have an issue with anything. I usually watch on my TV directly through the Redbull TV app on Apple TV and it works great. And I never have any issues watching other vids like these course previews either. It comes in smooth in HD without issue.

Video: Join Dan Atherton from the Top of the World Down
At one point during the video I said to myself holy shit these stages are long. Only to look down and see that I was only 4:17 into the thing.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Win?
If this is a purely hypothetical I'd have to say Joyride, even though I've never ridden a slopestyle bike in my life. Reason being that of all the events at Crankworx, Joyride is the only one that is essentially the pinnacle of a particular discipline. Winning the Canadian open or the Garbo DH would be sick, but no one really cares who wins those races as world cups and world champs are the defining events for DH racers. Joyride is THE event for slope riders.

Results: Windham DH World Cup - Finals
There was some reports about a fight between Gee and Ratboy and maybe Sam Dale last week at MSA. It's difficult to know exactly what happened (if anything even happened) because 'reporting' done by the media at World Cups can often be sarcastic or tounge in cheek. It's hard to know what they are being serious about and what's a joke or an exaggeration.

Missy Giove - Back in the Saddle
Great story. All the best to her and her wife. I hope to see her back within the sport now that's she seems like she's cleared up all her past issues. I'm sure with some actual training she could put in some respectable times out there, especially in the U.S. races. I saw her at the mountain creek pro GRT earlier this year and she was out killing it in a rental bike. Seemed like she was having a blast. Talked to her briefly on the lift line but I had no idea that was her at the time. She seemed familiar but it wasn't until a few days later when I saw a picture of on Facebook and was like holy shit, that was Missy Giove.

The fact that you started your post by saying "who the fuck is missy give" pretty much says it all. She's had her problems but the woman is a legend of the sport and her getting back on a bike is big news wether you agree with it or not.

Plus in most years he rides the east coast pro GRT races at places like mountain creek and plattekill which would make him as familiar as any of the top guys (except maybe Neko) with the east coast terrain.

Video: Windham DH World Cup - Missy Giove's Qualifying Run
If it really is true that she has only ridden her bike a couple days a year over the last decade (which I have no reason to doubt) then this is just really crazy impressive. With the lack of training and her age relative to the other riders, she looks great out there.
