Mike Jones, The Racer's Edge - Canada Cup, Calgary Mike Jones, The Racer's Edge - Canada Cup, Calgary
Calgary Olympic Park hosted race number three in the Canada Cup Mountain Bike series. The course received praise from all of the athletes, and was comprised of a mix of high-speed sections, rock gardens, tight and technically challenging woods and large jumps. The weather, though threatening, cooperated for the weekend and we were treated to a fast and fun course, unlike the gnarly mud-fest we faced at the World Cup last month.

It's simple, ride the stunts, you get a better time!

Tested - Bombshell Crusher Wheels Tested - Bombshell Crusher Wheels
There's more than one way to make a bicycle wheel stronger. For example, you can make the rim wider, deeper, thicker or reduce its diameter. Hubs are no less important and over the years many companies have tried unique flanges, asymmetrical and/or proprietary designs in an effort to keep optimum strength to weight ratios. In the spoke department, you can reduce length, increase thickness, or add numbers to increase strength. Bombshell's Crusher wheels take the latter approach, using a whopping 48 spokes at each end. Just for good measure, they use some of those other tricks to build the most indestructable wheelset I've not only ridden, but seen to date!

2005 BoXXer - First Look and Ride Impressions 2005 BoXXer - First Look and Ride Impressions
Ridden to World Championship Overall Titles in 2001, 2002, 2003 and now 2004, there’s no denying the Rock Shox BoXXer, first introduced to consumers in 1998, has an impressive racing pedigree. In fact, according to an informal survey at the 2003 Downhill World Championships, the BoXXer outnumbered all other suspension forks added together, gracing an impressive 58% of competitors’ bikes. This is even more telling when you consider that only about 20 riders were directly sponsored by RockShox and a large number of racers at the World Champs are privateers, who foot the bulk of their own product costs.

There are no words to sum up how much I love my .243 frame. After receiving it sometime around February I soon figured out that we were in for one hell of a roller coaster winter, but that didn't stop me from riding. I had to get my fix, it was like a drug, the bike just made me want to go bigger, longer, faster. It wanted to do it all. So if it wanted it, there was only one thing to do......

Calgary, Alberta Women Freeriders... Calgary, Alberta Women Freeriders...
Well, another Calgary Stampede is over, hockey season is past, football season is in full swing but life has, more or less, returned to normal here. The only bandwagon left to hop on in this town is the one heading to the top of the mountain for a sweet ride down! My crazy summer experiences so far involve getting the heck out of Dodge to get on the bike. See, summer tends to drive everything up – the number of people, the amount of traffic, drink prices, blood pressure… and I simply prefer going to the mountains with my bike while all these events take place.
