Desperately seeking out remaining pockets of getting rad while bones and joints fall apart after 39 years of mis-use and damage.

Trek's Prototype DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2016
I think I threw up one time near that garage. In the plants.

@macroman: yup. Thinking steel hardtail for some measure of simplification (and revolt).

It hurts the bike industry through smaller volumes for less-compatible parts, driving higher individual costs to recoup investment, driving people away. I ride a pretty fancy 6" bike right now (with 26" wheels!), but can't imagine re-upping due to cost and relentless outdating of standards. The bike industry is somewhat opposite of where most things are going now too - providing better value and simpler products and services to people, because HEY BIKE INDUSTRY wages have stagnated vs inflation. We don't have the spending power that we did ten years ago. Lot of companies fighting for the top end of prices. The computer geeks who make salaries that can afford those bikes barely get to ride anyway.

Rio 2016 - XCO Men's Race
@panchocampbell: I read it was 4.85km long each circuit, and data from the test race in fall 2015 showed that the biggest climb up Flag Mountain was 169 ft. The women's test race showed a total of 2382 feet of elevation gain. So, not huge climbing but a lot of short and punchy uphill sections. https://www.strava.com/activities/412685119

Rio 2016 - XCO Men's Race
I thought the course looked really cool. Obviously man-made and crafted to include all kinds of features, the rock gardens added some real difficulty and with the dirt or unpredictable traction there were some good crashes on the boulders. There was that crazy contrast between the burnt-up terrain and the race course too. Some of the drops were properly steep, and might even give a rider on a 6" AM bike the shivers!

The best section on A-Line! Pulling lateral G's.

Fox Air DH - Crankworx Whistler 2016 - Results
Also I would wager that Kintner has ridden more A-Line laps than the rest of the top three combined.
