Michelin Talks Tires
Try the rockr advanced reinforced for front, and gripr advanced reinforced for rear. Burly and better than their old stuff in my opinion. I honestly feel like I have to really push my speed to even get to where they are gonna slide. They are gnarly, and encourage you to step up your already gnarly riding. Its scary when you go faster with more control, and realize you can go even faster....

Well most sick Michelin's like the gripr and rockr can be had for $50 at full retail...want the super tits advanced or heavy casing, $60. Pretty much the best bang for your buck right now, if you try them. And in my opinion, the rockr in the massive amount of sizes and casings they offer, is the most versatile tire for my area(out west)

Searching for Corridors of Flow - Video
Its like they want it to seem like its as serious as climbing Annapurna, or surfing teahupoo at 40ft. I agree. Cinematography of biking is trying to seem too epic. Its not braveheart, it biking...

Pushing Comfort Zones: Learning to Jump - Rider Perspective
Here in Boise, Idaho, we have a surge of dog walkers wanting to turn our trails wheelchair accessible basically. Swimba and Ridge to Rivers uses our donations and grants to take our best technical singletrack, and they drive skid steers up them and build bridges over tiny creek crossings and make them wheelchair accessible. Even when they are miles from town....its really frustrating. They get mad when there's user conflict. But they seem to only deconstruct our trails to encourage the groups that complain to use them, and also are aging and now walk dogs more than ride....its pathetic. I wish they would use our mountain biking money to make mountain biking trails, not turn existing ones into walking trails for wheelchairs....maybe its the influx of Californians moving in....who knows, but it blows. So, illegal trails are booming also....and that's where the shredders go. We have no other option. Its that or run into your local city council member walking dogs on trails that used to be the best tech singletracks, and piss them off more when you have to skid to slow down....multiple use trails, of multiple ability levels is the way forward as I see it. But they exist only in the illegal form at this point. Hikers stay behind the shredders have to be rebels like skateboarders basically.

Pushing Comfort Zones: Learning to Jump - Rider Perspective
Its a mental game. If you don't have the commitment to want to try it within a few minutes, your not confident enough. If you don't feel right just showing up and doing it, you're risking a lot. I go for it when I know I've got it(still not true until you do), but the confidence makes it so much safer than sitting there for 30 minutes psyching yourself up to do it. That's when big injuries happen. You've gotta really want it, and know you can. Hesitation breeds devastation... That's what I've learned...and my non self appointed nickname(broke ass) means I've payed the price for trying things when I shouldn't have. It took me a while to learn how to realize when my confidence and skills are inline with high success rates. Know how to interpret your desires correctly or you pay the price.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Should a Top DH Racer Be Paid?
Hahaha, its like 95 out of 100 people didn't read the write up, and skipped straight to the polling booth. I put over $1m because of the point of view of the person who designed the poll said to basically eliminate all economical biases. Without economics, they are easily as dedicated, and risking more than MX when you consider their financial situations. Most pro mountain bikers must have a day job to support their travelling fees. They race because they love it, not because the economics make sense....but if paid for talent alone. They are at the top scale like any other multimillion dollar athletes in any sport.

Thinking of you Paul. You're such an inspiration. You even seem to be crushing your recovery. How you deal with adversity is a lesson for us all we need to try're the man.
