Lawsuit Claims Search & Rescue Delays Contributed to Mountain Biker's Death
I was just thinking about this unfortunate event yesterday, as these are still my local trails and where I grew up riding. I have to say, I agree with the claims of the widow, and there's no arguing that he could have been rescued much much sooner, before his death certainly. Sure, he was out on his own and there are some inherent risks. On the other hand, they have the fire roads so locked down that you have to go through the county or similar authority in order to even get a gate open if you wanted to rescue in your own vehicle. A measly few years before this, the access gates would constantly be open and it was not uncommon to be able to drive up on any given night without issue. The fire roads are for the most part very tame and smooth and you can drive up them in a car no worries, certainly in a 4x4 even after the rain. By the way, the tamest fire road to go up which could have been used for this (Skyline) is basically permanently closed because of a local housing community being built right on top of it, and they didn't want people coming through their neighborhood. Also, there's at least 2 helicopter landing places they could have used even in the rain IMO that have exposed bedrock which wouldn't be affected by mid or straight up concrete. The dude was injured and reached out on his phone, and his location was mostly know, poor excuses all around, SMH. Maybe I should look into being volunteer responder on my dual sport.

Racing Rumors 2.0: Gwin, the Athertons, & More
All I know is I saw Gwin's bikes for sale on the local craigslist about a month back, doesn't get much more suspect than that. If he was still riding for YT I'm sure he would confirm it already, looking forward to seeing where he goes.

Interview: Richie Rude Comments on Failed Drug Test
@Phillyenduro: Definitely agree, it's our decision on whether or not to believe what these guys are saying. The results are positive and that's that, I'm just choosing to wait until all facts are shown before passing judgement. Not much into road racing and I was 3 years old in 1997, but thanks for the list I'll have some casual reading to do today :) .

Interview: Richie Rude Comments on Failed Drug Test
@Phillyenduro: Positive results are positive results, all I'm saying is the motive is important as well, and that the "innocent until proven guilty" mentality should be applied. IE let's not trash reputations online over this until all facts are known.

Interview: Richie Rude Comments on Failed Drug Test
Just met Ritchie the other day at my LBS, nice guy and seems very humble. I think it's a matter of character, sure it came back positive but if he says it's accidental then let's all just leave it at that. Both of these guys are known for having good character, so IMO they are innocent until proven guilty.

Rocky Mountain Has 160 Bikes Stolen From Container
I know you're generalizing that they are gone, and I agree, but to expand on that note I think it's unlikely they are gone from Canada, would a box truck not be checked at the US border? It would certainly be checked several times before making from US to Mexico.
