NWD6 Premier at the Palms NWD6 Premier at the Palms
We all gathered at the Palms to watch Big D's newest offering-New World Disorder 6-Unchained. The movie was killer with riders just killing it. Huge wows need to go out to NWD riders and filmers for their constant push of the freeride envelope. After the movie credits ended it was time for Swollen Members to take the stage and rock the crowd. The show was sick......

Things are cruising along well down here again. After having our photo guy, Harookz go down on the last run yesterday and spending about 5 hours in a Las Vegas hospital getting stitched up I was a little concerned. Harookz is a trooper though and we were at it hard today, testing more bikes for all you out there that can't be here. The temperature was warmer and the amount of riders was more then day #1, so you were waiting to sign most bikes out. Here are day #2's tests....

Rocky Mountain ETSX-50 - An XC Trail Bike for XC Trail Riders Rocky Mountain ETSX-50 - An XC Trail Bike for XC Trail Riders
Rocky Mountain Bicycles has been in the mountain bike game for a long time and their B.C. heritage shines through in the bike line up. The ETSX-50 is the first XC ride we’ve ever had here at Pinkbike for a long term test. Not wanting to go with a full on XC race bike, I talked to Daina at R.M.B. about a versatile bike that would mostly see XC trail/exploratory rides. The ETSX-50 showed the most promise in trail etiquette. Did it live up to its online features?

Bike For Life: How to ride to 100- Book Review Bike For Life: How to ride to 100- Book Review
By Roy M. Wallack and Bill Katovsky

Ok. Here is the deal…This is not a Freeriding book. So if you only want to read a book about hucking off of anything you see, then this is not a book for you. However if you are open to different types of riding and want to be doing this sport for the rest of your life then this is for you. I have done a lot of crazy races in my time from 24 hours races to Sea to Summits, but the guys that wrote this book are freaking animals who have done most of the races that we as amateur cyclists dream of. Both Roy and Bill are true athletes who have used a lifetime of experience to create this book. The main point is that cycling is a sport that can be done whether you are 20 or 70 and the benefits from riding are worth looking into.

Well it’s the end of September and the “bike park” season is winding down around the nation. A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to check out the new additions to the Panorama Mountain Resort Trail System on the closing weekend. I hadn’t been out there since the BC Cup race, which was the opening weekend of the resort. The trail crew did fantastic job of building a more diverse trail system than in previous years. Trails such as the “Insanity Race Course”, and "Crazy Train" have been the premier trails, but after a season of building in 05’ there is a lot more diversity in trail design, and features to ride.

I also hadn't even thought of changing levers on my Avid juicy 7's until Pinkbike Tyler strolled into the shop with some Dangerboy Jewellery to show off.

Heads turn when these SDG saddles go by! Heads turn when these SDG saddles go by!
At the start of the season I came across these saddles by the folks at SDG and just had to get a few for our riders to enjoy. The SDG Bel Air has a more traditional cross country shape to it, but with more and more downhillers pedalling their steeds around, seats of old, big and bulky designs are becoming less of a commodity. The Bel Air will more then treat your average cross country rider right, but it was the look of these particular saddles that made me want to get our riders on them.

Barel wins the DH at the World Championships Barel wins the DH at the World Championships
Frenchman, Julien Camellini, was the last place qualifier and he was the first man down the hill. He enjoyed the hotseat until reigning world champ, Fabien Barel smashed his split time by -4:48, finishing in 3:54:77 and taking the lead. There were 33 riders left to come and no one came close to Barel until Steve Peat, who was +0.64 at the split. Peat made a few dabs and finished with a 3:58:14, for fourth. Sam Hill, fastest qualifier, was the challenger for Barel. Hill was on Barel with -0:42 at the split. Flying down the course Hill overcooked a turn and manages to stay on course, but it cost him time. Hill just misses out just 0:77 back, taking the silver medal. Minnaar takes the bronze with a time of 3:57:79, 3:02 back.

Ladies are good. Ladies that ride are great. Ladies that can rip it up are, well, awesome. That’s one of the reasons why Mountain Cycle jumped at the chance to be part of the first ever women’s freeride invitational coming up this weekend. The Slope Sistair competition from September 3rd – 4th at Hemlock Valley Resort in beautiful BC, will provide the top women freeriders in North America the chance to showcase their skills in front of a panel of celebrity judges, sports media and a pumping audience.

Team Haro Ends NORBA Series on a High Note Team Haro Ends NORBA Series on a High Note
Mt.Snow, Vermont - The last round of the NORBA series saw results overshadowed by a serious crash courteous of Mick Hannah. During torrential rainfall, the downhill riders cast their bodies down the course and into the unknown after practicing during dry conditions all week. Mick was riding conservatively when "I just lost my balance and clipped a tree." The accident looked far worse than it actually was but Mick's neck did take the blow causing a massive chafe mark and subsequent swelling.
