Australian National Championships - Downhill Finals
I know it`s stupid, but it feels so wrong to see Sam with out a stylish TLD. I really hope Sam will be able to get to the top. once again. I always wonder what could have been if he hadn´t crashed in Hafjell. Then again that´s the way Sam rides... the fine line. I know it`s stupid, but on the fotos he looks like a fallen hero.

George Brannigan Rips Down Coronet Peak - Video
No bike porn - No punkrock - No overcompensating Slow-Mo - no eover epic golden light instead new angles, great perspectives, rhythm. Something totally different - I like it. Let the riding do the talking :)

Specialized Welcomes Jared Graves to the Team
I just watched the replay of the 2008 olympic bmx finals - pfuh, when you came out first out of the first corner just to be mowed down in the second - I was´nt aware of that. What chances did you give yourself coming out of that first corner?

1 Question - What Would You Like to See as the Future of Practice for Enduro Racing?
I used to be pro blind racing for the obvious reason - ultimate test to read terrain adjust your pace and bike handling skills. Now that I´ve raced a few races within a series I changed my opinion. What in theory sounds great, just isn´t applicable because of: A) - safety reasons!!!: No sign can explain "be aware of the river gap, wich is easy when hit with the right amount of speed as long as you jump to the right, because else you´ll hit a tree" within a fraction of a second when you`re racing by. Actually this should be enough reason to NOT RACE BLIND. B) - local trails: Enduro is (at least to me), racing local trails in the surrounding of the race-venue. Some might be bikeparktrails, some trail-area-trails, some secret-trails on private land, and some might even be built overnight for high profile races. BUT YOU CAN´T BUILD TRAILS for 5 stages, every year at 8 to 10 venues, that none of the racers have ridden before. Also this point is sufficient for me to understand that blind racing doesn`t work. When one accepts that point you have to regulate training - or course re-con. I don´t think this is either controversial or difficult. IT JUST HAS TO BE AGREED UPON - AND ANNOUNCED PROPERLY!!! So work to do for chris ball and rider representatives(ellected). There can still be room for varying race-/training formats just like the current series venues. As long as regulations are in place and ways to execute them are provided according to terms that are agreed upon.

Spotted: OneUp's ultralight chain guide and 11-speed cassette - Crankworx Whistler, 2015
look here: http://77designz.com/ 77designz built their freesolo a while ago and it works perfectly. It`s lighter too Apparently in CAD its close to 70, wich is a lot Still It´s a small company just like OneUp and they came up with a good idea and built a solid product. Let´s face it, we all gave way too much money to coorporate companys without complaining before. So supporting the little and inventive businesses with a little more money than a quickly forgotten night out isn`t the worst thing.
