Darren Berrecloth recovery to Rampage Darren Berrecloth recovery to Rampage
Back in early August at Kokanee Crankworx in Whistler, BC, Darren Berrecloth took a digger on the last step down jump. The result was two broken bones in his hand and the possibility that he may have to sit out this year’s Red Bull Rampage if his hand did not heal. Being the Claw, he’s healed up faster than doctors anticipated and is 100% ready to do battle in the desert in under a week’s time.

Maxxis Aspen tire review Maxxis Aspen tire review
I enjoy riding fast, rolling singletrack but have no problem dialing up the tech on the steep and rooty stuff that is really common in this area. To that end, I'm always on the lookout for a fast-rolling tire that can hold its line through varying terrain. The Maxxis Aspen falls into this category and I've been running the tire for the past few months to see if it can live on the edge as a summer and fall tire.

2010 Fluidride Cup Finals Re-Cap 2010 Fluidride Cup Finals Re-Cap
It's a wrap. I hear the 'fat lady singing' as the Fluidride DH Cup has come to an end at Mt Hood Ski Bowl in Government Camp Oregon. Project 529's Eric Loney takes the overall win for Pro Men. The Bike Hubs/Loeka Jaime Rees nabs Pro Women's overall and DropNZone's top Junior Expert Bryan Mullen nabs his second series overall title making him the most valuable rookie pro for 2011. Dominating the race was Mikey Sylvestri of Allride/Specialized who won the race with no derailleur and chainless. He won by almost 6 full seconds. Evil's Charlie Sponsel was on his heels, but takes 'first loser'. Mr Eric Loney sliding into a solid 3rd with Evil's Kyle Thomas hot on his tail and Dunbar Cycles' Ken Faubert rounds it off in 5th.

Setting up your handlebar controls may seem like an easy task that is hard to do wrong, but spending a few extra minutes getting everything in just the right place can actually make a world of difference. You may be making it very difficult on yourself to shift when you need to or even may be robbing yourself of braking power without knowing it. How so? Have a look inside to find out!

Race Face SIXC crankset review Race Face SIXC crankset review
Race Face has been around as a component manufacturer for almost twenty years, supplying mountain bike parts for all segments of the market while developing innovative new components that hold up in challenging conditions. In early 2010, Race Face introduced its SIXC handlebar and crankset to the mountain biking world and this new family of carbon components was meant for demanding use on longer travel, all-mountain bikes.

Since I installed the cranks on my bike a few months ago, I’ve been putting them through the wringer and, despite a few criticisms, I am duly impressed by the overall quality and performance of the set, which I feel ranks among the best on the market.

Lone Wolf Productions has been very lucky this year. Now even more so that we have had the chance to work with Kurt Sorge on his section for the site. As you know he is an extremely famous rider and because of this, he is always very busy. However, Kurt being the professional he is, said he would participate in the project on top of all his other responsibilities. I admit, I thought that the section might suffer a little, but Kurt proved me wrong!

The Dudes of Hazzard started a few years ago when a friend and I thought it would be good to make a film for the Fort William Mountain film festival. We kept it pretty light hearted with some riding, comedy and general good times and the film went down really well. At the start of this summer it was time to start it up again and the original name stuck. Armed with a Flip mini HD camera, Myself, Liam Moynihan, James Shirley and Hannah Barnes along with other “dudes” from the Fort made a conscious effort to film the summer's proceedings. It's all the action from between the races, getting there, riding mid week and general banter along the way.

Mt Hood Oregon was the location for a 3 day stage DH race starting on Friday with an 18+ minute stage starting at 6,000ft, at the base of the Palmer Snowfield above Timberline Lodge, descending over 4,000 feet into pristine singletrack. Saturday was using a portion of the track, but ended in a completely different location in Government Camp at the Thunderhead Lodge. Sunday the course was held at Mt Hood Ski Bowl and was an incredible challenge of rocks, high speed turns, a sweet dive into a technical woods section with a really fast ending.

Red Bull Dusk 'til Dawn Recap Red Bull Dusk 'til Dawn Recap
On Friday September 3rd, 100 Downhill Mountain Bikers, hungry for some vertical, descended on C.O.P. in Calgary AB, for the inaugural Red Bull Dusk 'til Dawn. The concept was simple...From 10pm to 5am solo or 2 person tag team categories competed to complete the most laps of the Downhill course in the allotted time. Due to the on-line registration filling up and closing out early at 100 there were 20 local gear heads begging to be on the waitlist come 7pm, some managed to sneak in. The major twist on this Downhill Endurance event was that it was run at night and only portions of the course were lit.
