2019 Rampage & Proving Grounds Ticket Packages Now Available
@onemanarmy: When I didn't see an official camping on site option with the tickets, I emailed Redbull and they said no camping option was available this year: T"here will not be this year, but you can find many great place to camp near by most bike trails." Kinda cryptic for a first time attendee such as myself. I assume the meaning is that you can primitive camp nearby. Anyone know?

Iconic North Shore Teeter Totters Saved After Ontario Liability Ruling
In California the doctrine of assumption of risk would prevent this type of lawsuit from being successful. If you engage in risky behavior as part of a sport you pretty much assume all risks associated with the sort. We now have skateparks and pump tracks on public land that can be operated without fear of liability. For a long time there were none due to liability concerns. A lawsuit stands a chance only when the inherent risk have been negligently increased. That’s hard to prove. Your health insurance still has to pay to fix you. Canadian provinces could adopt this as the law. Be Best Ya’ll.

What Martin Maes' UCI Suspension Means for the Overall EWS Standings
@islandforlife: You have strong opinions and I'm trying to understand what they are based upon. Common sense or experience in bike racing/team management? Both?

What Martin Maes' UCI Suspension Means for the Overall EWS Standings
Blind application of rules and regulations despite clear evidence of proper use for medical purposes is unhelpful to the governing body's reputation. It does nothing to protect the sport since there was no evidence that the use of probenecid was tied to another violation such as the use of a performance enhancing drug. I am unconvinced that if UCI had allowed Martin to keep his victories and continue to compete that it would have been unfair to other EWS competitors, that it would have weakened enforcement of the rules and regulations relating to prohibited substances or that it would have diminished the sport in any way. I am not saying that simply because a banned substance has legitimate medical uses the user gets off Scott free. I am sure that there are plenty of 'doctors' who would go to bat for an unscrupulous athlete. Under the facts of this case, however, there is nothing gained by stripping Martin of his wins or suspending him for any amount of time. The guy could have lost his leg or died had his doctor not acted quickly using his best medical judgment. Bad form for UCI.

Podcast: The Insane Life & Times of Casey Brown
Great interview of a very interesting subject. The free ride sport has a potential for equalization using bike tech that is now readily available. If women need more power to compete against men in non-timed events, I say let them use e-bikes. On the other hand, no battery will give you the balls you need to ride like Casey.

Tech Randoms: Leogang DH World Cup 2019
It was a bit painful to see all the Fox resources at the races while my shock was in for warranty work for almost a month.

Aaron Gwin’s Race Bike Stolen in Edinburgh
I feel bad for Gwin, but he's from California, where every trail head sign says Do Not Leave Valuables in Car. Actually, I think every trail head sign everywhere says that. Lesson reinforced.

Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
@Boardlife69: why do you think that is true? Its not. We have highly developed coastal areas, deserts mainly unsuited to riding, forests regulated by both Federal and State authority, and tons of land set aside to assuage guilt as a result of over development for housing. There is riding, but its not plentiful near major metropolitan areas and some of the best trails are illegal. Best thing we can do in San Diego is join SDMBA. When law enforcement authorities have to justify their actions to elected officials who oversee them, there will be compromise. SDMBA does very well representing our interests as mountain bikers. It can help protect us from the whims of law enforcement.

Win a Canyon Grail with a $5 Donation to SDMBA
Happy to support SDMBA and get new trails built. I worked on that corner with my boys on the first day of trail work! There was nothing there when we started and by the end of the day, it looked pretty good. Can't wait to ride it when the trails dry out.
