Pinkbike Poll - What Matters Most: World Cup or World Champs?
@watchtower: Medals, not Golds. In a conversation about consistency I considered any podium (top 3) relevant. That's also the way Wikipedia has the data organized.

Pinkbike Poll - What Matters Most: World Cup or World Champs?
@StevieJB: Lets's look at the men: Riders with 3 or more world champs medals: Nico Voiulloz Greg Minaar Sam Hill Gee Atherton Fabien Barel Loic Bruni Steve Peat Most of whom won multiple UCI overalls as well. Aaron Gwin is the only multiple overall WC winner who isn't on that list. Only Fabien Barel and Loic Bruni didn't win the WC overall at some point. I guess my point is that mostly we're talking about the same people anyway. Those who have won either world cup overalls or world champs come from a list of about 10 names. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UCI_Mountain_Bike_%26_Trials_World_Championships_%E2%80%93_Men%27s_downhill#Medal_table_by_rider https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UCI_Mountain_Bike_World_Cup#Men_4

Pinkbike Poll - What Matters Most: World Cup or World Champs?
I am more impressed by a consistent performance than an occasional spark of brilliance. Winning once might be mostly luck or circumstance; winning consistently can only be done by someone who is truly at the pinnacle of their sport. That said, I certainly enjoy the excitement of those stand-out performances.

Stop at one of the many shops and they will be more than able to provide a demo route tailored to your preferred riding style and skill level!

First Look: The Stevie Smith 1199 DH Track
I've been hoping for this since Creekside was announced; it just makes sense. Fantastic news, and absolutely looking forward to riding it once completed!

Been riding in Bellingham for 15 years, and I can say without a doubt that EB has made a tremendous difference since moving here. The amount of good, legal trail has exploded, largely due to the relationship between the WMBC and local government/private landowners that he fostered. Bellingham had all the right ingredients to become an amazing mountain biking destination; Eric's leadership has pulled all the right people together to make it a reality. And there're even more great opportunities ahead. If you're reading this EB, Cheers!

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Listen to Music While Riding?
I like listening to music during the climb to help break the endless mental monologue. Once I'm at the top, I usually find myself present in the moment; the earbuds go into a pocket and I focus on the sounds of the trail without my brain trying to rehash the day or whatever. In groups, I find its usually hard to both talk to each other and maintain a higher heartrate. Might as well fan out, then put the music away when you regroup.

@WasatchEnduro: I could see a market for them in moto hare scrambles or desert racing too. The dust is no joke!

More Tech Randoms: Suspension, Tires, Paint & More - Crankworx Whistler 2018
@fecalmaster: Pretty much every spring, rainy muddy winter rides are hard on bearings. During the summer the bike hardly gets wet, but around here there's no avoiding water for 9 months out of the year.

Must Watch: Etnies Footwear Officially Welcomes Brandon Semenuk
That's what crankworx was in the early 2000's. The level of skill in each discipline is so high now that its rare to see much crossover.
