I've got to meet Kurt twice, really nice and humorous guy. Last I saw him was at OES where he was riding a Specialized. What bike is he riding in the video?

If you're reading this Kurt, what bike were you riding this new video?

 @XCMark: Yeah, Kurt is crazy with mad skills. Looks like he's on a 2015 S-Works Enduro 29er.

 @Voreis: Hmm, my memory must be going, I thought I saw you use a white Specialized at 2015 OES? Still 160mm rotor up front?

 I would happily avoid riding behind kovarik. I mean not that I could keep up but Voreis has to eat a lot of dust.

 That's Bend!

 What about if you're in charge of trail maintenance and you learn Kovarik is coming out for a ride. That's a lot of berms to fix because *he will* destroy them!

 I'm not used to see Kovarik in fruity colored clothes. It seems wrong somehow... If it wasn't for his riding and flat pedals, I would've never guessed it's him.

 @Janosch He wore murdered out grey in the entire segment. Voreis wore the bright colours.

 Day glo gloves and socks, I get it. I'm not colorblind or blind and I can still distinguish the difference between Kirt and Kovarik. But after his WC racing days in red, for years he was almost exclusively in black. Seeing him in anything other than black is... weird. Even in charcoal or grey or moss green or whatever. Like an angry bowl of fruit with big calves and Five Ten's.

 @Janosch: "Even in charcoal or grey or moss green or whatever. Like an angry bowl of fruit with big calves and Five Ten's." If your fruit salad in the mornings is charcoal or grey or moss green, you may want to be double checking the expiry dates... Just sayin'

 @Janosch: you obviously haven't watched or seen any photos of him from the past 2 years wearing the kovarik jerseys that were a majority day glow green or yellow...

 "Yeah Janosch. Obviously!" Never mind. Next time I'll try to use more words. Or pictures.

Every US National I ever went to, he walked the pits in solid black (socks/hat/shirt/shorts/shoes).

 You spelled "Ruining" wrong.

 I want to check out bend, what trail should i ride? What trail is this? Hi from Bellingham, wa!

 There were shots from both east and west side of town. @supersheep it depends what time of year. Higher elevation trails are still under snow

 The first trail is Cline Butte out in East Oregon, although theyre pretty much all just sandpits now. The second one is whoops in phils and it still relatively snowed in. All the trails here are smooth except for cline.

 @inewsum: nah that looked like horse ridge and sand canyon, but I could be wrong. 2nd one looked like wanoga not Whoops. I was on Whoops yesterday and it's 90% clear except for very top.

 I love mud and wet conditions, but wish I could ride in such dust from time to time...

 Was that filmed last fall? Seems like there should be some moisture in the trails if it was filmed recently.

 Or covered in snow, yeah.

 Those dust routes seem like easy street to Scottish wet muddy enduro routes. But they do have style

 "Dust routes"

Dust is where you learn to drift. Riding on hardpack, dusty trails is like riding on small ball bearings. A little similar to traversing large, wet boulders, but not as slick. Dusty trails allow your tire to break loose easier, so dusty trails tend to demand a discipline of their own.

 That's what Nashville said about Outlaw Country, now look at Cash and Nelson. Then there is the Clash, the Stooges and the Smalls. Icons!

So, who are you when you're not at home?
