Video: 9 Years Old And Making A Difference
biking is awesome because, i some weird way, it often brings out the best of people who are willing to put some blood, sweat and thears into it. I guess you can say that about a lot of sport, or commitement to sports, but biking is different because for many it has a purpose. A bike makes a positive impact on the life of people in rural africa. A kid can bike through the weather in Vermont and inspire other people to give. biking inspires the ones who like biking. hope this makes any sense. This kid is the real deal, i can wait to show this video to my daughter. wow.

i love this picture with a passion. Hard to describe how i feel when i look at it. feels like seeing Axl and Slash playing Welcome to the Jungle together....but wait...nah...Axl is an washed out ex-rock-star... these 2 are still at the top. this proves it poeple.....Mountain bike is better than rock. yes....i'm an old dude.

Intense Tracer 275 Carbon - Review
yhea, bikes can get expensive. i know the differences between a $1200 and a $5000 mountain bike. You can ''ride it, feel it, mesure it'' what i'm always interested to learn is, what makes for the other $5000 ? developpement cost, so is engeneering, getting the righ angles, lenghts and BB height should be pretty much aquired tho. on the consumer side, getting a supensioned dialed, the right sag and good tire pressure is the best bang for the buck IMO that being said, it wont ever get you to ride like Kovarik...

The Future of XC? XMB Challenge, Aspremont
it would be nice to see this type of race mixed in the XCO world cups. Not all of them, bu let's trow a few in it. I'm sure the racers would love it. problem is broadcast of course. This makes it impossible to film, get on the net or sell to TV. But still, it would be nice. what i am suprised is this as been pretty much the same format for what we call Raids in Quebec (and most probably everywhere) they have been this type of racing for a long time. Raids like Bras-Du-Nord, Vélo-Mag and Jean D'avignon are very popular. While most participate in the long marathon (even some are sanctionne in XC marathon UCI) versions, there are always some shorter version of the course you can register in. That's pretty much it! look these races up on the web, i have been racing them for years and everytime it awesome,.....tough as hell, but awesome. cheers,

Opinion: Is it Time to Revolt?
Epic rant I enjoyed it. But in reality, I think you are ‘raging’ to the choir. There is no need to rant here. We all ride. Of course, most of us probably not as much as we want but too much of a good thing can ruin it…ok maybe not, but it can change it. I don’t want to change how going for a ride makes me feel. I would trade most of my workdays for a ride, but I still love my work. It’s given me a lot. I choose to go ride most part of the week-ends and the evenings (apart from the winter months) instead of spending time with my daughter. I’m ok with that, but not more. When late fall arrives, then winter, I spend more time with her…I catch up. I guess what I’m saying is; I think we get it, but I think most of us already live a life to accommodate our ridding. This is not putting a passion on the back burner and growing up to be fat and cosy in front of the TV. Take a look around, see all these unhappy people? They are consumers and that is what they live for. They get unhealthy, they get dumb, their behavior is alien, and they don’t care about dirt….we do. Even if we have jobs, families. I have a TV from 1998 in the basement, no coach, nothing to sit on. My house is small and perfectly filled with nothing we don’t use. I drive a Fiesta that I love to leave parked. I have a beaten down shed filled with bikes that are ridden many hours per week. We’re good here; don’t need to preach to the choir. Cheers,
