bigquotesAfter breaking my wrist this summer, I was more than stoked to get in a few laps at home this season. Nothing crazy, just pure simple trail riding on some of my favorite runs in the world. Steep and deep at its finest. P.S. Don't come here, it sucks. - A.V.


Alex rides FSA Gradient Bar, Stem, and Cranks. GRID rims, and the Afterburner Seatpost complete this slayer of dirt's weapon of choice. FSA's Pro Shop is in action featuring all these great components and more, at 20% off retail through Dec 3.

 Those trails are unsustainable. Whoever built those trails should be taken out back and shot. Can you believe that anyone would actually choose to build non bench-cut trails without grade reversals? Where are the intermediate around lines!? THINK OF THE EROSION! THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

 @colincolin: the suspension rebound noise.
I used to have a morewood with an elka shock which sounded like this. Rode great but I did find it annoying.

 My Fox40 is hissing sharper than that!! Can barely hear it though over the noise of my bear bell. You'll want a loud bike in BC to avoid them Yogis!!

 I just moved to NE Washington, about 45 minutes from Nelson. There are hardly any trails here but LOADS up there! I'm really hoping that the border will open next year.

 Hey Alex, as a person who was lucky enough to call Nelson home for the Summers from 2007 to 2012, I don't agree with your Nelson sucks comment ;-). I am a bit curious though if you don't mind giving up the goods. I recognized the last part of that vid being good ol' Shitacker but wasn't sure on the first part.....that Sitkum area? Keep killin' it!

 As a Nelson local, don’t come here. The trails aren’t fun (yes they are, I’m just selfish)

 Suspension breathes like that. Fox, Marz, Rockshox all sounds like that in my experience.
