Ibis Enduro Team Pulls Out of World Cup Racing
But Enduro was supposed to be the next big thing!!! apparently not… It’s so fun to watch. nope, it sucks it definitely didn’t negatively impact and set back interest and coverage of DH World Cup by a decade… yup, it did it also didn’t put thousands and thousands of weekend warriors on over-spec’d bikes that are far more than they will ever need… definitely did that but we NEEDED Discovery to bring MORE people to the sport… nope, that’s what we’ve got ebikes for but but but… wahmp f’ing wahmp I’ve got nothing against the every day person racing whatever format they like… but the faster the industry infatuation with enduro dies, the better

Video: Rob Warner, Eliot Jackson & Emily Batty Recap the Les Gets World Cups in 'Beyond the Line' Ep.4
Redbull, if you’re listening: You guys may be onto something here. It’s plain to see that you’re still dialing things in. But PLEASE, at the very least, swap out Emily for a DH racer for half of the show. We understand the need to have an XC viewpoint for the show. But the chemistry between Elliot, Rob and Rachel (and the insight) was so much better. No offense to Emily, but the chemistry and insight just ain’t there. This show only works with the right vibe (episodes 1 & 2 are real meh while episode 3 hits the bullseye) Elliot and Rob click so well, and their energy really complements each other. But you gotta build on that and find that rider who brings additional insight, like Rachel did.

Anyone have any tips on how to get the action cam look in Clip #5? I don’t have an action cam. But I’m curious what kind of kit you’d put together to get this same look.

If you’ve got problem ankles, or even just a sprain, there is simply no better option for protecting your ankles than a brace like this. If you’ve had even a slight sprain, a brace like this is ESSENTIAL to protecting the injured ankle from further trauma until it can heal. My ankle is so F’d that I need to wear mine every single time I ride, or risk worsening an already bad situation. That being said, DonJoy has been making a brace like this for well over 15 years. Check Amazon. Don’t bother with anything else. I’ve tried them all. Nothing else offers the stability, protection, flexibility, general comfort, and affordability. I’ve been using one ever since a fancy sports doc told me there was nothing he could do for my ankle after multiple fractures, serious sprains, etc etc., short of an ankle replacement, which he said I’d best put off for as long as I possibly can. That was when I was 30 yrs old. 43 yrs old now and the brace has saved my ankle more times than I could possibly count. I’ve gone through probably 4 or 5 of them in over the last 13 years. Worth every single penny.

Video: 'L.A. Sucks for Riding'
The Greater Los Angeles Area has truly excellent riding. Full stop. Before I moved here back in 2003, one of my teachers told me “people either love LA, or hate it”. In my experience that’s true and seems to be born out in some of the comments. I personally love Los Angeles, but I can see how some would hate it. It’s not for everyone, but to say that it sucks for riding is a gross misstatement. There’s TONS of riding around Los Angeles. It may just not be the kind you like. I personally struggled to adapt to just how different the trails are here. The majority of them are crowded, loose, dusty, exposed, and lacking man-made features. If you want jumps and features, you gotta spend the time finding them and the people who know where they are. If you want a trail network right in your back yard then move to some backwater place that has one. Enjoy not riding for 5 months out of the year, the abject poverty of the surrounding areas, the shit politics, and the unfriendly locals who hate that their town is now an “IMBA certified Trail Destination!”. Oh, and not being able to ride 5 months out of the year. Did I mention that already? I can say with all confidence that I could bring an out-of-town intermediate level rider to so many spots within an hour of Los Angeles (some much closer) that they’d leave shocked at how good the riding is. People just love to hate on LA. And that’s fine. It leaves that much bigger a slice of dusty, wild, sun-baked singletrack for me.
