Panorama Bike Park 2014 - New Jumps and Escape from Alcatraz
Wow, heated debate. I can definitely see d-man's side of the story. To add my humble opinion, what I always found somewhat frustrating when I was first getting into the sport 10 years ago was how all "features" were built at the expert level, with pretty high consequences. It really made it difficult to progress. So, when we talk about parks being designed around progression, I'm all for it. However, I can also see the point the progression means having advanced features for advanced riders to progress on, so ultimately, it's about balance, a little something for everyone. It's been quite a few years since I last rode Alcatraz. I always hated it. I think I was only able to clean the "green" line once. Threading the needle through those trees while turning was crazy difficult. And the drop line was never, in my mind at that time, a great option, because the trail below was always blown out with no real catch berm. So while I can see the point the dumbing down this feature, I glad that they at least did something with it. I'm not convinced that there is room in this sport for teeter-toter drops. Teeters, sure. But teeter drops? The risk spinal injury is too high, even for highly skilled riders who can clean them 95% of the time.

Mass Start Downhill Racing? Inaugural Pinnacle Bike Championship
"The first rider across the finish line wins!" You don't say. Is that how a race works? Derp.

Ibis' Ultra Wide 741 Carbon Wheels - Review
Maybe you should consider the wording of your comments then. They are unclear, and you sound as though you are interested in a wide 26.

@poah, check out other wheels. Ellsworth used to do pretty wide rims (might still), and I believe Canfield is now as well.

Kicking Horse Bike Park - Trail Crew Update 1 - 2014
Is is just me, or is the section of trail on Pioneer below the rock drop and around Spiral Tap getting a little gnarlier each year? I've ridden it a number of years in a row, and something about it last year, maybe it was just my ridding at the time, but it just seemed gnarlier than I'd ever remembered.

Fernie can rattle you up just as bad as Kickinghorse. Some of the stuff around Playground/Hornet/TrackII (before you get into the trees), and then everything off the top of Timberwolf.

I would have thought a Your Mom quote would be more appropriate/funny.
