Just thought it would be nice to have a spot that us seasoned (old guys) could talk about bikes and training ideas.

I went to Blue in the summer and tried DH for the first time - got addicted to it. Just bought my first mountain bike and trying out as much as I can. I'm almost 47.

I just built a DH bike this summer. I started with XC mountain biking first. I'm hooked on DH now I think the rush was what I got hooked on.

I'm 50 the best training I've ever done is entering races. I did 20 events this year, my fitness went throught hte roof. Won my class in xc and took 10th in nationals. All in all a fun year.

42 and loving it. Mostly fitness oriented single track and ocassional XC event. Interestingly the last time trial I attended the top 10 fastest times were posted by the over 40 crowd, I got 7th!

Just starting to get the DH itch... and picked up a used Trek Remedy to treat it Wink

Yo - 48 and fitter than ever. Did the Trans Rockies in 08.
My next adventure is to do the BC Bike Race.

Has anyone done it? If you have do you have any advise?

Lots of over 40 riders..my next question is. Why are bikes so addictive? I'm always creeping PB for parts..Just bought SID World Cups for my XC bike. Anyone else use them?

Why is this in the fitness section. It is a good topic as I am 50 and have been riding what seems like forever. I gave up dirt bikes a few years ago and mountain bike as much as possible. I road bike ride to keep the fitness level up.
