First Ride: Specialized's New Turbo Levo FSR
@colincolin: It is just one step further in the wrong direction. If you can't ride up it with an E-Bike, chances are you also can't ride down it. I've seen enough "regular Joes" pushing eBikes up trails WAY beyond their capabilities already...

PSA: Don't Stop on the Trail
@OrangeGoblin: maybe the kid fell down in the wall and was just getting back on the bike? We don't know the whole story, but it really does not matter at all. What Bryn did was highly irresponsible and should be condemned. He broke the moat important rule of trail etiquette, which is "ride responsibly".

PSA: Don't Stop on the Trail
@Archimonde: Well, actually, for this specific bike park, this is actually a RULE. You MUST be riding line of sight. So if he was not able to do this, he was riding in violation of the terms of this park. And yes, that is how I ride in a public park. It's not that hard - and you can still go effin' fast. If you want to race, please, go ahead - race. There are races where it is generally accepted that you will encounter dangerous situations, and marshals on site at especially "blind" spots. Bike parks are NOT a race track! Bryn made a horrible decision by pulling through. If he had clipped that kit's head with his pedal, he would have paralyzed or killed the kid. And he was really, really close, too. The right Thing would be to stop, tell the kid that he is standing in the worst possible place, and continue. THAT would have taught the kid a lesson, this way he just got buzzed by an idiot. Best point in case for riding line of sight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2a_oRBXTwQ Four idiots piled on top of each other because they were too cool to ride line of sight.

@Nathanck2000: no, not degrade his riding, but ride responsibly. I like going full send as well, but ALWAYS in a way where I can stop within line of sight. There is a difference between a race track and a public bike park. Especially when there are kids around, I would rather crash into the woods on my own than to risk taking a ten year old out at 30+kph... Even if it is not "rad enough" for #instagram

Yes, but going full send in an uncertain situation can't be the answer. I know they were wrong to stand there, that doesn't make his decision to keep pushing any better. He took a chance at he is lucky he didn't put that kid into hospital!

Sorry Bryn, but that was a serious dick move. You could see the kid from a long ways away, absolutely no need to risk a serious crash there. Yes, the kid was standing in a poor spot, but it is YOUR fault if you ride at a pace where you cannot stop before a stationary object. There may as well have been an injured rider down in front of them on the ground, and you would've fucked them up seriously. Just cause you're fast and famous doesn't mean you should ride like an idiot.

NSMBA Embraces Building Diversity in the Mountain Bike Community
@romperroom: Not everything that applies to a large group is automatically sexist/racist/etc. I was not saying women are less "bad-ass", I said FEWER of them are - that's just the way it is, otherwise there would be more of them riding in the first place. Which is probably why you generally see more women on XC bikes than on DH sleds. It is the same story in engineering (where my sample size is considerably larger than in MTB). The female population engaged in engineering is consistently between 10 and 20%. Oh and by the way, out of these fewer females, the ratio between good and bad engineers is pretty much the same as with the larger male group. It doesn't mean men are the better engineers, but more men are interested in being an engineer. All these "inclusion" efforts mainly serve to bring the less interested people into sports, which will then lead to a drop in the perceived ability of the whole group… I don't know if that is such a good thing.

Let's face it, more men are willing to take the chances on a mountain bike than women. I'd encourage any of my female friends to try mountain biking, but they are too afraid of going offroad. It took my wife years to be somewhat comfortable on a gravel road, took her to an easy trail center once or twice, but it just is not for her. As for other minorities / skin colours, I can't speak for that as we frankly don't have many in Austria. We get a ton of people from eastern europe riding here, but they are mostly on vacation...
