Wanna go faster? Wanna go faster?
Do you wish you could see the lines that the Pros are taking? How do they select the line? How do they remember when to slow down, when to hammer?
Well now you can get some coaching straight form the source. Learn from the pros at Betterride/Rocky Mountain Downhill.
These camps are taught by 7 year pro racer and BetterRide/Rocky Mountain Downhill owner Gene Hamilton. Since these take place right before a race these camps are designed to improve your course inspection skills, help you find the fast "pro" lines, teach you how to memorize the course and use reference points, and prepare mentally and physically for race day. After one of these camps you will feel much more confident and prepared on race day.

Mole Shoes Product Review Mole Shoes Product Review
Shoes have always been a mainstream part of skateboarding, but its not something you give much thought about when your riding, things like your fork and pedals are more important. Besides, most platform pedals do a good job of tearing up shoes anyway. For those who think twice about riding footwear, if you don't know about Mole shoes, you should.

An Amateur View of Wisconsin An Amateur View of Wisconsin
Yes. The Pros were there, but everyone covers that!


Non-pro riders started to accumulate on Wednesday the
12th for the weekend at Alpine Valley Resort in
Wisconsin. It was the second stop on the NORBA
National 2002 tour and a great break for mid-western
riders who wouldn't usually be able to make a national
event.

Kicking Horse Kicks Ass!! Kicking Horse Kicks Ass!!
So how good could a gondola be, that shuttles you up 4,000 feet of screaming fast fireroads and super buff downhill singletrack? Absolutely amazing, and by amazing I mean totally fantastic!

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, the largest resort development in North America in the past 25 years, opened for it's summer season on Friday, June 21st. The folks at Kicking Horse were kind enough to give us a preview of what the resort has in store for mountain-bikers this season!

Specialized EPIC introduction Specialized EPIC introduction
Forget everything you thought you knew about bicycle suspension. Because unlike every other suspension design in cycling history, our new Epic knows what terrain you're riding on. And responds appropriately. The secret's in The Brain.
On smooth ground, Brain technology keeps your Epic hardtail-firm. And hardtail-efficient. But when the going gets bumpy, Brain knows that too. And instantly delivers the fully active/fully independent benefits of FSR suspension.

Norco Team DH 'guinea pig' Norco Team DH 'guinea pig'
The first round of testing the Norco VPS Team DH 'guinea pig' has concluded! After a few short months of hammering the bike as hard as I possibly could it has yet to show any signs of being overly abused! The bike came with a killer arsenal of spec'd partsFrown click read more to view the spec list)

Coming from a lighter, freeriding background it took some adjustment to get used to riding a monstrous rig like the Team DH! Due to the minimal standover clearance I was not able to run the bike at it's potential 7.875" rear travel. Slacked back to 6.2" allowed for a little more clearance and stability on the gnarly steeps. The VPS ate up drops and craters like they were non existent. It definitely instilled some brass balls and pushed me to ride and jump it harder! The only con to mention at this point would be the Blackspire AS-1 chainguide which tends to fail at crucial points in a ride! I'd recommend placing an MRP or Evil chainguide to complement the rest of the bike! Stay tuned as Krazy-J takes round 2!
