Calling in Well and it's benefits! Calling in Well and it's benefits!
Friday was a day meant for travel as I hit the road for the next 10 days. After a great breakfast in Kamloops it was time to make my way east to the next BC Cup DH race in Invermere BC, along the way I decided I'd side track myself with a few hours at Silver Star in Vernon. Without any attempt to sway my best friend out of work and to join me, he looked up from his breakfast and stated "I'll be an hour behind, but I need to take a self improvement day and biking is the best reason I can think of!"

The legend that was the Canada Cup DH course in 1999 is no longer, alas a new creation has been formed! A hardworking trail crew has created a NEW COURSE for Horseshoe that will be like nothing else seen on the O-Cup circuit, steep chutes, off camber, high speed wide wood sections, multiple lines, drops, jumps and of course the Snake pit. This is a course reminiscent of the mid section parts of bigger Canada Cups.

The Intermontane Challenge, one of the world’s most unique and lucrative mountain bike races, has announced Thompson Rivers University (TRU) will be the core of its food and accommodation program for the 2009 race. The race package will set a new standard in quality, comfort and value in mountain bike racing.

The inaugural 450-kilometre race takes place in Kamloops July 27-31, 2009 and is the only race of its size in the world to feature a single-track, clover leaf design. The distinctive design allows racers to tackle a different part of the course each day while establishing a home base in Kamloops every night. Because of this, TRU has made its apartment-style condo-like residences available for competitors. In addition, the university’s culinary department will be lending their expertise to provide food for racers.

We’ve been out practicing every day, and my lines have changed multiple times.

Well summer is here and as the temperature starts to heat up so does the race season. The Arduum Challenge was held this past weekend and the challenge was to get down the course without damage to bike or body. On Saturday I heard the count on toasted wheels was up to twenty and there was more added to that list on Sunday. I know at least one frame got broken and I did see a couple of people in slings. The good part is that if you talk to any of those people I bet every one of them will tell you they had a great time on and off the race track and are already planning their returns for next season.

Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Josh Bryceland brings home the gold at the UCI World Championship Junior Downhill race today at Val Di Sole. Steve Peat is the bridesmaid once again placing second in the elite men’s downhill to Gee Atherton’s first place run. Gee was the man to beat all week and this race was his to lose, and he pulled through with a run as stellar as his practice had been all week. Sam Hill was on a winning time, over 6 seconds faster at the second split time and gaining speed on the last section when he slid out and crashed in the second to last corner throwing away the win. His time was still good enough for a bronze medal. Greg Minnaar followed them all in for a fourth place finish.

The downhill seeding race for the UCI World Championship Downhill took place today in Val Di Sole, Italy under blue skies, which is typical of this region, but it didn’t seem that way early in the week with light rain showers wetting the track. Racers played it easy and some played tactics in the seeding run as all riders are qualified and no points are given for the seeding run, so not much was on the line. Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Greg Minnaar placed second in the elite men’s category and said, “I battled to find a rhythm, but it’s still early now and we have training tomorrow and Saturday. I should be able to find my rhythm then and give it some stick in the final,” said Minnaar.

Known for his go big style, Kinrade is a veteran of all 4 Redbull Rampage contests and co-producer and rider in the video series "Stund".

He also builds his own lines for movies and photo shoots which in my mind is one of the greatest assets a pro rider can have today. When you look at one of Mike's photos or videos shot in the high alpine in some of the most beautiful places in the world you can't help but get inspired to do the same, says Kevin Menard owner of Transition Bikes."

This year the Goatstyle crew had something big up their sleeves. Wesley Graham, the event organizer and developer managed to get around $50,000 to spend on the event for this year. Dave Wigen had some land that they were digging up and needed the dirt to be excavated out of the site so he decided to get Wes to come down to the site and check out if the dirt would be any good for building jumps and making a course. It turns out the dirt was perfect!! Dave said when they were digging it up from the ground; the dirt was almost green because it was made of so much clay.

Mountain biking can be a tough sport for female riders to break into. We talk about progression, riding, coaching, and how things are changing for female riders.

Nicky is like many female riders - she got into mountain biking through her husband. However, in three seasons, she's gone from a timid noob who hadn't ridden a bike for twenty years to a confident intermediate rider. She knows what terrain she likes to ride, and now has that passion for mountain biking we can all relate to. Weekends are planned well in advance - who to ride with, and where. There's no time for long lazy days at the spa, a makeover, or shopping. It's all about riding the dirt, rock and gnar.

Dan took one look at his new Titanium Absolut on Thursday morning and decided instantly to do a frame swap and ride it in the finals – who can blame him, what a beauty! Thanks go out to Commencal for being understanding and letting him ride it unpainted! This leaves things very tight in the UCI 4X Standings with Dan only trailing Guido Tschugg by 50 points - in part down to Guido finishing 5th yesterday and only taking 100 points.
