Pinkbike Christmas Party - Burning rubber and Women go well together. Pinkbike Christmas Party - Burning rubber and Women go well together.
Everyone looks forward to Christmas time, regardless of your religious beliefs. Everybody has a hard time sleeping, wakes up with cold feet, stays up late, and wakes up early. Christmas time is a time of year that everyone is happy with. Excessive breaks from work make it an exciting holiday with lots of time to visit with the girlfriend, wife, kids, chairlift, whatever you may need to spend time with.

Another evening we all look forward to is your Christmas Party with co-workers. You have yelled, argued, fought, swore, screamed, and praised your co-workers all year, and now is a chance to enjoy a night out with them, where no work will be talked about. The work Christmas Party is an awesome event to end the season on, so here's a small write up on what we did this year.

29 days of November - The Chambers' Chronicles 29 days of November - The Chambers' Chronicles
This fall has been a very unique experience for me. Normally I spend my fall and winter up in the Northwest Territories working in the exploration industry looking for diamonds. With the unfortunate market crash, there has been a shortage of work for me. So what do you do when that happens? Ride your bike everyday.

This fall has been incredible. Perfect weather, perfect conditions and all the time in the world. This November I rode my mountain bike 29 out of the 30 days, and it has been the most incredible month of my life.

The Greatest sport in the world! The Greatest sport in the world!
An outline explaining why Downhill Mountain Bike Racing is the greatest sport in the world, and why all others are inferior to it.

Many people, especially those studying Kinesiology, frequently participate in the debate that asks the question, “What is the greatest sport in the world?” As a somewhat opinionated person I believe that regardless of the activity/sport at hand, the question of the greatest sport is always relative and specific to the reasoning that the person who gives the answer can provide. As I sit here listening to some Disturbed, I know without a doubt in my mind what I believe to be the greatest sport in the world. Because of specific reasons I will outline why hockey, football, basketball, baseball, golf, rugby, lacrosse, volleyball, soccer, and cricket are ALL inferior to the majority of extreme sports and in particular Downhill Mountain Bike ‘Racing.’(DMBR)

Ogio's 9800 Moto gear bag is luggage done the MX way. It is made to withstand a biker's beating with its tough material, zippers, and buckles. Packing mountain bike or motocross gear is a heavy job, so Ogio equipped the 9800 with its SLED system (structural load equalizing deck)to make handling easy. Equipped with oversized wheels and a retractable pullman handle for maneuverability, the bag's multiple grab handles and straps make it breeze to secure for road trips.

Many people might think kids just ride and don't put in the time to maintain and build new trails, but these San Diego young guns are really making a difference at their local riding spots by changing this stereotype...

Local San Diego DH riders Luca Cometti, Dakota Goulder, Sami Gowdy, Lucas Cowan, And Alex Silverman age 13 to 16 decided, last summer they were going to change their selfish ways of riding without ever maintaining or building new trails. They realized if so much time was spent riding their local spots why not put some time into maintaining trails, as well as building new trails for their fellow riders.

Bang Bang is a action documentary by Aaron Chase. For you of those that didn't know, Chase broke his L1 vertebrae in his back during the 2007 season. Chase says "I was sitting there, looking down at my legs, and I couldn't feel them. It was the worst feeling in the world". For someone who's whole career rotates around with his wheels, being paralyzed from the waist down would be a tragedy.

Bang Bang follows Chase through his 2007 season, including his broken back, his recovery, and his final successes. Take a trip with Aaron, Cam, Kyle, and a bunch of other professional riders through the 2007 season.

His big presence and sense of humor will be sorely missed as well as his powerhouse performances on the racetrack.

Prince George Cycling Club (PGCC) Bottle Drive for Insurance Costs Prince George Cycling Club (PGCC) Bottle Drive for Insurance Costs
The campaign to have Pidherny authorized for mountain biking continued last weekend with a fund raising effort to cover insurance costs.

The area, known as Pidherny to the locals, is on the outside boundary of the city of Prince George, BC. The cycling club is working on a master plan to have the trails authorized for mountain biking. With some work, the whole area could be protected for multi recreational use. The project is formally known as the "Nechako Ridge Mountain Biking Pilot Project" and is sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts. If approved, a network of greater than 20 existing trails (XC & FR) will be mapped, graded and rehabilitated to the Whistler Standard. A skills park with progressive stunts and jumps is also planned.

This season I have spent the vast majority of my riding days on one bike (which is unheard of for me) and I have to say that I've had a pretty great season. Typically I've had a small stable of bikes that accommodated a variety of riding styles, but this season I decided to try what most people have to do and ride the same bike all the time. The Intense SS was the frame I chose to start with for a variety of reasons, the biggest being its versatility in regards to build up options.

Republik MTB's fresh threads. Republik MTB's fresh threads.
Nowadays the clothing business is a rough place to be. Basically, you can make or break it. Look back at this past year and think about how many clothing companies have fallen off the radar, or gone bankrupt. Big companies have a firm grip on the clothing, and clothing design industry, and appear to have the ability to guess the next coming trend. It used to be baggy, way to big clothes, and it's now being transformed into a more tight fitting, so to try and guess the movement is as complicated as it gets. Republik MTB has a small lineup of refined clothing, each of which have a unique design or feature, making them stand out from the others.

It's nice when you see a small company can make a line up of clothing that appeals to today's youth, but is also functional.
