The crowning of Steve Peat as 2009 World Champion put an exclamation point on the Santa Cruz Syndicate’s domination of the downhill arena for the past few years. Peat’s 2009 season put him in the history books - 17 career World Cup downhill wins, 50 World Cup career downhill podiums and finally the elusive championship - and he alongside teammate Greg Minnaar pushed the Syndicate to the pinnacle of success. Minnaar won three World Cup downhills in his first season aboard the Santa Cruz V-10 and captured the UCI World Cup overall in 2008. He continued his charge in 2009, winning three more World Cup races, thus scoring 6 of his 11-career World Cup wins during his two-year stint with the Syndicate. Young gun Josh Bryceland’s contributions to the squad with his Junior World Championship title in 2008 and 13th overall World Cup performance in ’09 has made the Syndicate the UCI #1 Downhill Team for two years in a row.

The Santa Cruz Syndicate bagged all the titles they chased this year in Schladming, Austria at the Nissan UCI World Cup Series finale. It was a tight points race and Greg Minnaar proved his dominance in this series winning three of the seven events and by placing fifth today he clinched the title, his third series overall win of his career in the elite men’s downhill. Josh Bryceland sat out the final race with a broken collarbone but still had enough points to retain his hold on the junior overall title. And a collective effort by the Syndicate members this season paid off with the top downhill team champion’s crystal trophy going home in the hands of the Syndicate’s fearless leader, Rob Roskopp thus capping off a magic year.

It’s a long-legged, lightweight but surprisingly durable workhorse that defies being lumped into any one category, and is at home everywhere from mellow XC terrain to the steepest and rockiest slices of the back of beyond.

Why then, if something is so popular, so tough, and so capable, would we go and scrap it for something new? Much as we love the old LT, not long after it hit the trails, we began to pick it apart to try and find ways of making it better. Now, after an exhaustive two years of intensive design and prototyping, we’re ready to unveil the next generation of Blur LT.

Bikeskills has just released the latest in its series of free, “How-To” videos. The new video was created to help mountain bikers understand switchbacks and develop skills to deal with them.

The switchback category was chosen by Bikeskills Joe Lawwill as a result of his experience in conducting clinics for Bikeskills. “We’ve found that few mountain bikers actually understand switchback turns. Even the ones that can make switchbacks on familiar trails often struggle when they encounter them on new trails and terrain. The objective of the video is to first explain what’s going on with a switchback and then provide the instructional elements to conquer them,” says Lawwill.

Christmas comes in April in the Kooteneys Christmas comes in April in the Kooteneys
Damn it feels like Christmas! I received the call from Greyhound; quickly I became light headed, and then I was off to the depot to pick up my new ride.

6 Stella tall cans later the bike was built, polished and tuned. Everything went together like clockwork. Fresh from the box this bike feels like a dream. If you have never ridden a Santa Cruz bike, then find your closest dealer, and test ride one of these beauties. I can guarantee that you won’t want to give it back.
