Mike Kinrade Hangs Up the Bikes Mike Kinrade Hangs Up the Bikes
In a strange turn of events, Norco freerider and hucker extraordinaire, Mike Kinrade has decided to hang up the bikes in favour of, of all things, a hoola hoop? After injuring his knee and subsequently his hip, late last season, Kinrade's physiotherapist urged him to try the hoola hoop program to speed his recovery. Mike instantly took to the hoop and feels the time has come to leave the bike world behind while he pursues the up and coming sport of freestyle hoola hoop! Mike was recently overheard to say "I've found my true calling in the world of hoop". No official word from Mike's film company, MPF films but it's been rumoured they have been secretly working on Freestyle Hula's first film, tentatively called My Flaming Hoop. Not one to miss the boat, Norco announced yesterday they would be offering a Mike Kinrade signature hoola hoop by late spring!

Sprockids Finally Gets CCA Recognition Sprockids Finally Gets CCA Recognition
On Saturday, March 29th, in Gibsons, BC, the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA) launched the pilot project of their newest initiative: the CCA Sprockids / National Introduction to Cycling Program.


The program, aimed at getting kids off the couch and onto their bikes, is the first step in an integrated model for cycling, from the first introduction to high performance to lifetime activity. Based on the successful program of the same name from the International Mountain Bike Association, and created by BC schoolteacher Doug Detwiller over 10 years ago, the CCA version encourages the development of a broad range of cycling skills.

Bicycle Cafe Kamloops Begins Blair Jones Fundraiser Bicycle Cafe Kamloops Begins Blair Jones Fundraiser
You may remember reading the name Blair Jones on Pinkbike's pages last July. Blair suffered a serious spinal injury after a road gap gone wrong at Rose Hill. The Kamloops Bicycle Cafe has begun raising funds to hook Blair up with a set of wheels to get him back ripping Rose Hill in time for the summer season. Their goal of $10,000 obviously needs your generous patronage to become a reality. Not only will they be organizing fundraisers and parties that will benefit Blair's quest, they've promised a percentage from all Kamloops Bicycle Cafe hoodie sales.

An Online Apology  and  a Goodbye to mental An Online Apology and a Goodbye to mental
I have a confession to make... I haven't been giving 100% to the site, my family, riding, work, racing, my day to day responsibilities, or anything that matters really. I don't know what happened over the last year, but somewhere along the line, something took what little focus I had and tossed it trailside. I'm here to make amends, and as nearly every 12 step program dictates, the first step is recognizing there is a problem.

Another Stellar Sunday Night Spent with COP and the Gang Another Stellar Sunday Night Spent with COP and the Gang
Over 120 riders braved brutal course conditions reminiscient of a gigantic Slurpee and not one complaint was heard. Well, maybe some of us did whine about the bitter wind that was blowing at the top of the course, but once things were underway, grandiose smiles were seen on all riders' faces. Win or lose, everyone walked away happy (with the exception of James Harris - more on that later). Most left with at least something from the truckload of swag brought by Calgary Cycle, Santa Cruz, COP and Norco.

Cannondale Purchased by Pegasus Partners Cannondale Purchased by Pegasus Partners
The winning bid in Cannondale's Chapter 11 bankruptcy auction was none other than Pegasus Partners. Pegasus was Cannondale's largest secured creditor and the company insists it'll be "business as usual". None of the motorsport division's bids were acceptable according to Scott Montgomery, but it's anticipated a decision will be made on the troubled, now closed division in the coming months. "Cannondale is one of the world's premium bicycle brands," said David Uri, a partner at Pegasus. "The fact that the bike division has remained profitable despite the distraction and costs of its now-closed motorsports business clearly demonstrates the strength of the brand. Our job now is to let Cannondale concentrate on what Cannondale does best--designing, manufacturing and marketing lightweight, high-performance bicycles for the specialty retail market."

Cannondale's bicycle and motorcycle divisions' suitors await word from the company's closed-door auction tomorrow. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Cannondale was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year after the company's dismal foray into the motorcycle industry. No word yet on interested parties, but we expect full disclosure by day's end. I wouldn't be surprised to see the motorcycle division going to Harley Davidson, and to be totally honest, I haven't a clue who'll take the (profitable) bicycle division.

There's something about snow racing. I can't really put my finger on it, but of all the racing I've done, no discipline is consistently as much fun as COP's fat tire snow races. Snow, the big equalizer, where any rider stands a chance to advance regardless of the field.
This Sunday, at 7pm, it's your last chance to hit COP's terrain park.

James, Aimee, Vickie-Lynn and COP's stellar staff will once again throw one hell of a party. There's even a special treat this time around. In association with Calgary Cycle, Santa Cruz and Karo, COP's all-ages lounge will host the First Annual Alberta Freeride Awards. Even if you're down and out on the injured list, show your face for a chance to see Alberta's best riders, supporters and biggest hearts.

With only days left to edit on Statement, Russ Morrell asked me for one more chance to shoot in Virgin, Utah.

He said he had big plans. When he busted the Robbie Bourdon gap (20x30 feet) from the second day Red Bull Rampage course and then followed it with a 30x30 foot drop, I believed him.


Download the video clip of the drop.

He also went for the Canyon Gap that Bourdon tried at the most recent Rampage...but you'll have to buy a copy of Statement to find out if he made it!



Oh, yeah! Did I mention he did all this on a Balfa HARDTAIL?


By the way, Statement will be available worldwide April 2003, and if you happen to be at the Sea Otter Classic, make sure to come to the world premiere at the BIKE party.

Hello, my name is Tonya and I am a mountain bike addict. (But that is the least of my problems.)


Snow, bloody snow! Ok I admit it, sometimes snow can be good. When you want to go snowboarding or skiing, for example. Or even if you want to do a little snow biking. Then snow is good. And it always makes the mountains look more beautiful and rugged. So, snow can be good. But, for crying out loud, I am mountain bike racing in just a few short weeks. So what am I supposed to be doing with snow?
