First Fresh Meat of 2007 First Fresh Meat of 2007
Yeah okay, I'll admit it! I've been lagging and haven't done a Fresh Meat feature in a while. As you can tell by this installment, it’s not that I haven't been getting any new goodies - but real reason is that the weather here has been fantastic and I've been spending more time on the bike and less in front of the computer. A lot of good stuff in this one - enjoy!

RAYZ Rail Jam- How grass root events help shape all our sports! RAYZ Rail Jam- How grass root events help shape all our sports!
Well its still winter and I feel compelled to write about another non biking event, but this time the parallels are so great that you should all get something out of this little story. I am currently on holidays in North Western BC enjoying a nice cold winter as opposed to the coastal crap that was being dealt to us on the lower main land and the Fraser Valley. My theory was to hit the road and find real winter. Ok I’m already off track here, so I’ll reel myself back in and head down the right road. I want to tell you all about an event that I got to go watch this past weekend. The event was called RAYZ Rail Jam (link to site) and it took place in Smithers BC, hometown to Wayne Goss and a host of other really talented mountain bikers. But this event was for the skiers and boarders of the North West, and they killed it.

"We were getting sick of being limited to releasing new content based on our 84 hr. countdown clock so we've done away with that so we can release new videos every day. In this first phase we've incorporated a "Quick Clips" section as well, which will give RipUsers a chance to make a quick stop off on the site for a little fix while the boss isn't looking and then come back when there's more time to watch the longer content when they have some more time. So far the audience is loving it so we're excited about the next few weeks as more improvements are made."

BOS ENGINEERING, the company that made Nicolas Vouilloz's bikes when he created his own team, is back on the DH scene.

Bos was created in 1999 by Olivier Bossard, the guy who designed the famous Sunn Radical Plus, which has been titled many times (Gachet, Chausson, Vouilloz, Gracia, Barel, Pascal where all crowned at least one time with this bike). At Sunn, Olivier designed all the bikes: frame, fork, rear shock, and many other parts. The factory Radical Plus used a lot of special parts and were pure factory bikes.

Angus Council Community Learning and Development - Bike Tracks
Where are the bike tracks on the East Coast of Scotland? It’s a question many local mountain bikers have been asking. Yes the east coast is well served with a variety of natural trails and some unofficial jump sites. But if its Glentress style all weather biking you're after then there are few places in Scotland further from these types of developed tracks. Angus Council’s community learning & development outdoor education team is taking steps to promote a discussion about the viability of a mountain bike trail development matching one of the 7-Stanes sites. This discussion would lead to a consultation period in April.

I think we’re in Idaho. I might not be sure of our exact location but I am positive that of the three dirt covered men in this truck, one of us has a “flatulence problem” worthy of seeing a specialist for. For some reason though, its just as funny now as it was seven days ago when we left snowy and wet Chilliwack for the 24 hour drive south to Virgin, Utah.

Last weekend, the skiers in Leogang looked surprised when they saw a 200m long swath with big hills of snow and a digger embedded in a wooden construction next to the ski slope at the Schantei Lift in the city centre of Leogang. But latest when the first riders went down the course, everybody knew: That must be the Kona White Style. In front of 1300 spectators, this snow expression session took place for the second year in a row. 20 riders from five different countries mostly equipped their bikes with spiked tires and battled for glory and honour and 3,000 euros of prize money. All of them aimed to be the king of snow.
