Salmon fillets as spot prizes - classic. Maybe Bluff oysters next time?

Interview: Brook Macdonald Comments on Spinal Injury, Evacuation Delay, & Recovery Outlook
@sino428: Nah, to be honest it's way harder to assess the extent of any injury when the person is in pain. The way we assess neurological injury in the emergency department does not require a whole lot of cooperation from the patient. For example, if I am trying to assess leg power and the person is in pain they will be weaker (have you ever had a back sprain? you feel like you can't use your legs because you are in pain, but you don't actually have a spinal or nerve injury). Frequently we will give person enough analgesia to blunt the pain signals and then test again. The old world of "don't given a patient any pain relief before they get to the doctor"is long gone. If Brooke was left with no serious pain relief with these kind of injuries it was an appalling medical management.

Interview: Brook Macdonald Comments on Spinal Injury, Evacuation Delay, & Recovery Outlook
@sino428: Negative. There is absolutely no contraindication to giving pain relief in spinal injury. This does not limit clinical assessment in any significant degree. Any paramedic on the scene could have obtained intravenous access and administered fentanyl or morphine. I don't know what the situation or resources were available but withholding analgesia on clinical grounds like you have outlined is not a thing.

Maxxis Limited Edition Taiaha to Be Released at Crankworx Rotorua 2019
Kia ora. Hard to understand the negativity of some comments. Most New Zealaders are proud of Māori culture and love to share it with visitors. Te Puia is an amazing facility which does just that, all while teaching and supporting budding Māori artists. I encourage all those coming to Crankworx to go for a visit. While being Pākeha myself (non-Māori) I would be proud to show my support. Maybe we are just less cynical down here at the bottom of the world?

Interview: Miranda Miller on the Switch to Enduro - 'I Have a New Motivation & Drive'
That was one of the most genuine and delightful interviews I have ever read. What a champion. Best of luck this year, Miranda. You've got the rest in spades.

Interview: Rachel Atherton - The Records Don't Matter
What an amazing role model Rachel is. I don't know about other countries but women's MTB participation in New Zealand has exploded in the last few years. Women like her, Pompom, Tahnee, Tracy, Katy Winton and many others are fantastic ambassadors and are inspiring generations of young girls and older women like myself to take up mountain biking and, gulp, maybe even race. The more women get involved in the sport, the more chances of finding that unique talent that will go on to the big stage. So if you want to see more exciting DH racing on RedBull the best thing you can do is to support your local women getting into the sport!
