Finals Photo Epic - Pro GRT #1 at Windrock Bike Park
Awesome to see such a "local" event draw such high level riders and buzz... things like this where the privateers can get into the mix against the wc circuit riders can only help with exposure and growth for them and the sport.

20 European Riding Spots We Want to Visit in 2018
@Ruggd: I have a brother in law in Berlin in IT and he says the problem there now is finding programmers who can actually speak German haha... I kind of like that German trails stay locally known though, keeps the morzine or moab vibe away.

20 European Riding Spots We Want to Visit in 2018
Funny how little any of the riding in Germany and Poland is known else where... both have amazing riding but you have to know the language or a local to find almost any of it...

Knolly Bikes Launches Fugitive 29er
I have a 200mm on my Knolly Delirium and could actually fit about 240 for full range of movement... but then I'm a tall freak of nature. Still loving Knolly for building so us taller guys can ride too!

Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
What about changing tire pressure depending on the trails I'm on that day? At 220 lbs on muddy sandy coastal single track and I'll go all the way down to 22 front and 25 rear... dry day in the bike park railing berms will go all the way up to 30 front 35 rear to get rid of tire roll. I never have a "standard tire pressure" it's always dependent on the trail at hand.

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
I think one of the biggest problems with DH is actually the addiction to the ski industry and it's resorts... yes it works well for ski resort to invest the money to keep things going year round in the accounting department and some have turned it into an art form. But most resorts don't care about DH, we're just filler until they can get back to business which means we don't get the best lines on the hill, have to deal with clear cut ski runs (you can only do so much to make riding down an open field interesting) and miss out on some terrain that while subpar for skiing could be killer for DH riders. I like that we're starting to see more and more year round mtb parks where the sport can grow and progress like bike park Wales. But I would love to see some actual professional level investment and infrastructure put into to a well located DH resort and see the kind of attention and pull it could derive. Some place like the front range just outside Denver where there isn't hardly any snow for skiing but you could build a killer bike park cut through forests and rocks fields 30 minutes from downtown. With a massive population at your door step and already extremely healthy local mtb community something like that with a real lift system could easily become the center of a whole new level of progression in the sport.

Ask Pinkbike: Whistler, Sprocket Size, and Capable XC Bikes
I think you have to extrapolate that a bit as skiers are the oldest most refined crowds (i.e. most likely to have grown up responsibilities) followed by snowboarders and then the DH riders... if this guy is an older rider he is probably more likely in the 1 in 100 or even 1000 club rather than your average 18 year old whistler wanna-be-ripper sending crab apple hits on a wing and a prayer...

Commencal Announces BC-Edition Furious and Meta
Edit: think it's better to say contentious rather than appropriate... it's nice art that clearly lends to the PNW... but could rub people the wrong way.
