Whistler Now Triple Extra Large Whistler Now Triple Extra Large
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park, the international leader in downhill mountain bike parks and trails, will launch an additional 2,200 vertical feet of terrain on Whistler Mountain this Saturday, June 26. The [L=http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/bike/garbanzo/]“Garbanzo Zone”[/L] features four new hand-built single-track trails and extends the park into the Whistler Mountain subalpine. Expansion in the Garbanzo Zone is a response to rapid growth in the popularity of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park where visits have increased by 500% since 1999. Increased terrain will mean shorter lift lines, more space on-hill for riders of all ability levels, and access to a greater diversity of trails.

The Padden Mountain Pedal a cornerstone of mountain bike racing in the Pacific NW will anchor the newly created Bellingham based mountain bike festival, WHIMP Fest held on June 26th & 27th, 2004. The Festival is aptly named for the Whatcom Independent Mountain Pedalers a.k.a the WHIMPs who have been the driving force in making the mountain biking in Bellingham and Whatcom County what it is today. The full story of the WHIMPs can be viewed at www.whimpsmtb.com but suffice to say that the 1500 hours of volunteer trail work hours per year for over a decade is just part of what they do.

A Father's Day To Remember A Father's Day To Remember
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when my wife informed me I'd be spending the Psychosis weekend at a swim meet in Trail. Not that she usually plans my weekends, especially during riding season, but who could blame her after I've spent the last 6 months (excluding weekends) a 7 hour drive from my family wrapping up some loose ends with a former employer. After spending so little time with my 2 (wonderful) children these past months, how could I plan a Father's Day excursion without them?

Despite the lousy weather the 2004 Bear Mountain Challenge was definitely worth checking out. I was under the clouds that brought the intermittent rain showers for three days taking photos and I can’t say that I was disappointed; after a weekend of rain the race day riders ripped it up and checked in with amazing times regardless of the fact that the super slick clay based mud was five inches deep in places.

After the most successful opening month ever for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park (WMBP), and the Garbanzo Expansion happening in less than a month, it’s safe to say the Bike Park trail builders have been busy. And with all of the new trails and features under construction, you’d think our resources would be tapped, wouldn’t you? Think again. We’ve hired one of the most innovative stunt builders in the business to create four masterpiece features for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park and we need help naming them. Submit a name by June 27, and put yourself in the running for a 2004 Whistler Mountain Bike Park season pass and a pair of Marzocchi ‘Monster T’ forks

Tested - The Astrix Havoc Tested - The Astrix Havoc
I’ve always admired unique bicycle designs and the “crazy scientists” who piece them together. I still remember back to my early days in the sport and the likes of John Castellano, Horst Leitner, and Jim Busby and their (then) revolutionary suspension designs. To the mainstream cycling world, these guys were on the fringe – but arguably, each brought new ideas to the sport that would ultimately change it forever. In Ryan Carroll, chief designer at Astrix Sports, I see many of those same traits admired in the other “crazies”. Unique, likes to think outside the box and he certainly has an obsession with building a better bike.

First Look - Speed Stuff - Stuff First Look - Speed Stuff - Stuff
Mountain biking, especially in freeride and downhill guise, could easily be considered an inherently dangerous sport. I still remember the first time I "saw Jesus" while descending far too quickly down an unfamiliar section of trail in Yakima, Washington 8 years ago. Granted I was scared - really scared, but you couldn't wipe the grin off my face for days afterward. That fear-iduced adrenaline rush could very well be what draws (and continues to hold) many of us to the sport. While there may be a certain rush that acccompanies fear, there's another not-so-rosy feeling that accompanies being broken. Thankfully, there are manufacturers like Speed Stuff looking out for us.
