Top Of The World Opens at Whistler Mountain Bike Park
It's like opposite world. We go crazy for the jumps and berms in the Whistler bike park, because everybody in Europe utterly sucks at building bike parks. And then the North Americans go crazy for some alpine single track that you can literally find on every single mountain in the Alps, usually serviced by gondolas, chair lifts, trains, buses etc.

Video: Shaperideshoot Team Riding The New Scott Gambler.
Yeah, it kinda IS Champéry. It's just over the mountain, and it's the same guy who builds/maintains the trails, who by the way also designed the bike. Morgins is about as far from Champéry as Whistler is from Blackcomb. And the trails are steeeeeep.

Full Nelson - Opening day in Squamish BC
There's several shuttle vehicles in these pictures. Can anyone suggest a good shuttle service for taking a day trip to Squamish from Whistler?

Pinkbike's Burning Question - Will the 29er Replace the 26-inch Downhill and All-Mountain Bike?
Makes sense, as the Norco guy is an engineer, whereas the other a "president".

Pinkbike's Burning Question - Will the 29er Replace the 26-inch Downhill and All-Mountain Bike?
The Norco guy talks about engineering. The Niner guy is just trying to sell his bikes.

Swiss Bliss - Take Two
Well, there's bike parks and all in Switzerland and all over Europe. And one of the main reasons they just aren't as good as the ones in Canada is that there are TOO FEW people riding there. Because there are many parks and not that many mountain bikers, the critical mass to make a bike park as good as Whistler is never reached. So I think we need more and not less riders, even the "unskilled haddies". As for the remote tracks that need to be accessed with pedal power: there will always be only a few people fit enough to actually ride them.

Swiss Bliss - Take Two
I was just going to write a reply along the lines of "loosen up, let them have their fun", but this article almost has the taste of colonialism to it. "We were pioneers, pirates almost, hoarding singletrack gold in an entirely foreign land - right from under their noses." In 2003??? What??? Maybe if his trip was 10 years earlier that would sound credible. If they knew how hard it can be to get a gondola or chairlift to take along bikes they would know that they were certainly not "some of the very first to hit these amazingly epic trails in downhill/all-mountain fashion". Anyhow, check out their website and you'll see that they offer 3 weeks for small groups. That cannot really be called "circus and funfair". So, loosen up and let them have their fun.

Mario Lenzen poaches the Shore
He just confused "stiel" with "steil". Minor typo.
