 I think that song was on a Fat Wreck Chords compilation from when I was in high school. I remember only listening to it when I was too lazy to skip the discman.

 You must have gone to high school in the late 90's?? Fat Wreck Chords was the best.

 I still find it strange that Roval/Specialized sponsor Ropelato for wheels/tires but Santa Cruz is his frame sponsor. I wonder if the wheel and tire package is a carryover from his Specialized days, it’s just weird.

 Once you ride specialized tires and wheels you will understand the why.

 @Rider656: I do ride roval carbon wheels and occasionally specialized tires. I’m just saying it’s weird t me that they sponsor him for wheels and tires, but not frames and other things (accessories, protective, apparel etc).

 @Trudeez: i don't know the answer. I was just giving props to specialized for wheels and tires. Have you tried IM'ing him? Most people respond now a days. If he does get back to you, let us know.

 There used to be two DH trails above the B - this one and another that used to be used for the NORBA race series back in the day. Nobody rides it anymore so the entire bottom section is washed out and overgrown.
  • + 1
 There was never a NORBA race series held there to my knowledge. It was one of the tracks in the local Utah DH race series. It took a fair amount of tuning up each year to get it ready for the race.

 Squaw Peak?
  • + 2
 Bountiful. Although I don't know why we don't build up lower squaw peak to be the same, either on the existing (but really rocky) DH section, or by rebuilding the whoops DH to be a good flow-jump DH trail like what they have up there. It would be great early/late season riding thats easily shuttle-able.

 That song comes as if it is the star in this vid, way too present and demanding. Wrong choice.
