Shimano launches SAINT web site. Shimano launches SAINT web site.
Shimano have just recently launched a new web site for their new “Super Heavy Duty” component line called SAINT.

From product description, to concept, to product development, www.ridesaint.com should pretty much answer most of the questions you have about the new component line.

Ride the Lightning Teaser Ride the Lightning Teaser
While the Freeride Entertainment crew was on site at Helltrack III, I secretly snuck into their HQ and stole a freshly burned CD with RTL Teaser scribbled onto it. I quickly figured it to be a preview of their latest flick Ride the Lightning, I raced home to view it, and wasn't the least bit disappointed! Featuring some of the sports greatest heroes, Derek Westerlund and the gang have somehow stepped it up again in their latest installment in the NWD series.

As always, "Right Click" and "Save Target As". Enjoy!

A Warning from Dustin Adams A Warning from Dustin Adams
Just got an email from Dustin Adams of the Giant USA team. Apparently he's being sued by the landowner for "reclamation costs" for some work he'd done with an excavator at the Juniper dirt jumps in Kamloops, BC. These dirt jumps were extremely popular with locals and road-trippers alike, and Dustin alone has been burdened with over $3000 in the lawsuit. Dustin is working on a fundraising raffle with prizes donated by his various sponsors, we'll keep you abreast of details as they become apparent. If you spent any time at the dirt jumps, karma dictates you dig deep to help his cause. Let this be a warning to all of us, ensure you have permission before you dig! You're not only risking having jumps leveled, but your pocketbook could end up just as flat!

Review - Race Face Diabolus Oversize Bar and Stem Combo Review - Race Face Diabolus Oversize Bar and Stem Combo
It was time to replace the stem on my bike. I never have been impressed much by the look of a bicycle stem. The one I had was a big silver block of metal with four ugly bolts protruding out the front. I picked it up at my local bike store for about $60 cdn and expected it to last me forever. Besides, how can you wreck a stem?

Well it’s been one hell of a start to the summer. In the last few months we’ve ridden way too much. Kamloops was wild, and none of us can remember much about Nelson but we know it was rad and this trip was no different. We decided against taking any extra days off work for Kelowna and headed out on a Renegade run (leave Friday after work, come back late Sunday night so you can be back at work on Monday) instead. We were a small group as Danger’s bank account is still recovering from a winter in a land far far away and Gord had to take a break because he was roadtrip whorring so much he needed time away from the bike. So the Cabbage, Robb and I headed out Friday night. We didn’t get out of Calgary until late so it was a long drive through the night.

Canada Cup Finals in Jeopardy - Sun Peaks - Kamloops, BC Canada Cup Finals in Jeopardy - Sun Peaks - Kamloops, BC
It is quite possible that the Canada Cup Finals at Sun Peaks will be cancelled. The area around Kamloops and Sun Peaks is presently inundated by three massive forest fires. The location of these fires blocks virtually all access to Sun Peaks, and the mountain has been put on 1 hour Evacuation alert. All of the guests and most of the residents have been removed from the mountain and there is only a skeleton crew left there, manning snow guns to try to keep the village area moist. Highways in the North Thompson area remain closed and we are not sure when they will reopen. Over 3000 people in areas surrounding Sun Peaks have been evacuated so far. As long as we have access to return to the mountain even as late as Wednesday there should be no problem running the event.
