The Athertons' 5 Most Memorable with Trek - Throwback Thursday
The whole Antherton Clan is a great phenomenon in our sport. What they've all done as a collective and as individuals. Both for personal goals and for the benefits of MTB as a whole can't be understated. They also hold no punches. We get to see them outside of the media circus of race weekend. We get to see that what they have hasn't come easy. Them and there support teams work their asses off. We see the parts of their personalities that we like and don't like. We see their wins and losses. They each inspire riders in so many different ways. From the completely different ways Rachel and Gee take on a season. To Dan stepping away from racing and doing projects both personal and for the sport that redefine what this sport is. I'm sure they have to beat companies off with a stick everytime it's new sponsorship time. Bike companies know the overall benefits to having "The Anthertons" attached to their brand.. At a Norco diehard loyalist (37yrs). The possibility of them riding for Norco next, is pretty freaking awesome. Both have goals outside of the race world to further the sport of MTBing as a whole.

Emil Johansson Rises To The Occasion at Crankworx Whistler
When he crosses the line and you could litterly hear a pin drop on the mountain shows how unexpected the level of his run was and let alone place so well. It wasn't by about a competition at that point. It was about a rider fighting the toughest battles of his young life to do what he is passionate about possibly for the last time on that level. It was a remarkable sight of empathy and compassion from the crowd for a beloved rider. There wasn't many dry eyes in that crowd and it wasnt because of the smoke. Yeah mountain biking can be a pretty testosterone filled shitshow, with tuff as fuck homies at the best of times. It's one of it enduring qualities. But we are also a global community and the way we honor those who have fallen or the way we rally for those who need the support is unmatched by any other community. Emil's story is a testament to that. I've said it a million times before the MTV community is the best community. I hope we see more of Emil in the future and his health issues stabilize so he can lead a comfortable life. Weather he rides on this level again or not. Cheers bud!

Video: Trading Carbon For Alloy on a Sea to Sky Shred
Never really saw the appeal, difference, advantages of carbon. I'm notoriously brutal on bikes so I always stuck with aluminum, cromoly, steel frames. Looks like I'm "cutting edge" again.....

Video: Jeff Lenosky & Giant Part Ways After 17 Years
I'm from the West Coast. But the influence that Jeff and the gang of East Coast riders had on me and my street riding can never be understated. I even owned a few Giant STP steeds in my day. Just because Jeff rose one. You could tell his influence on the frame design. Still one of the best HTs I ever rode. Looking forward to what Jeff will bring in the future.

Video: Hardcore Hardtail Hauling in Barcelona
@mtnbkmann: Exactly! Such a beast that bike. I rode from Vancouver Island to Nelson (roughly 800km) just few months after I bought it and have done many long distance/back country/ multi day trips with it. Love that bike.
