Grab a quick selfie before practice and make sure to get the scenery in

Winter sports and Olympians, a new helmet sponsor for Aaron Gwin, the ups and downs of injuries, and more. We bring you the highs and lows from social media this week.

Looks like Aaron Gwin won't be riding in a TLD helmet this year...

George Brannigan is finally able to ride again after seven weeks off the bike.

Bernard Kerr escaped UK winter for park laps at Skyline Queenstown.

Troy Brosnan going big with the boys on Maydena Hits and almost landing on Sam Walsh.

 Lots of hate on this format...but I gotta say, as someone who doesn't use social media at all, I do appreciated someone curating it for me weekly.

 I also do not have anything other than facebook so it is nice to see someone else doing all the hard work for me are weed out all the crap out there. I say keep it up. If people dont like it...dont click.

 How about getting on the social media themselves then in stead of having PB curate them for you? I regularly enjoy browsing 50:01 and the like on Instagram when waiting for the train, taking a short break etc.

 @bonkywonky: Because I only have so much time in the day that I can spend browsing bike porn. So i prefer to get it all in one place. Its a lazy American thing......hints Walmart, everything in one spot.

 Thanks Vital. BTW it'd be nice if the embedded instagram videos were bigger, you can't fullscreen them

 To be fair at least this week the PB version is a bit more bike orientated. For some bizarre reason there's a video of a bloke shuffling blocks of wood around on the latest Social Scoop. Although the barstoolsports video is pretty cool.

 @metaam: Vital definitely needs to put more thought & work into their version of this ........ their social scoop has been a social flop lately

 Yep, PinkBike won this week. As much fun as drunken wood stacking was to watch........I like bike content more.

 Hey, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I'm loving my first Vital gear club box by the way. Wearing my new trail-building socks right now and my daughter needed some fresh grips on her bike. She loves the Deity grips.

 @fpmd: trail building socks? Are these different to your average everyday socks?

 @weebleswobbles: Oh way different, they have a shovel and pickaxe on them. Can't build trail with normal socks. Pfft.

 @nug12182: Wouldnt classify PB as social media. Pinkbikes instatweeter would be social media.
