[Update: Bike has been Returned] Jim Monro's Atherton DH Bike Stolen from Red Bull Hardline Tasmania
While the parts will go to the winds, some Kiwi oligarch will sit by himself in a dimly lit room with this frame on the wall. Like any piece of fine, but stolen art, it can only be enjoyed in secret.

Must Watch: Braydon Bringhurst Is Incredible Riding Up, Down & Switch-Footed in 'ALL WAYS'
Wildly impressive. I don’t think I’m overstating to say that there’s style approaching a Semenuk, technical ability on par with Akrigg and the climbing chops of an elite level rider like Nino… possibly a level above in the latter category. Seeing him climb the slick rock is a wonder… even though an ebike would have the power to go up those otherwise descending trails, most ebikers would be afraid to loop out and likely not even try. The switch foot riding is something that I have worked on in my riding for over 20 years now. The versatility and safety it brings are worth the effort of otherwise taking “a step backwards” as you learn. That’s the nature of learning though, where you sacrifice moments of strength in technique to adapt to something that feels awkward. It’s only in pushing through that where you find the benefits on the other side. In the past two seasons, my goal has been to learn to corner right with my right foot forward. As it’s always been about advancing the outside foot to get a natural hip turn into the corner, I’d never really tried cornering with my weak foot (goofy or right foot) forward going right. Honestly, there wasn’t much reason to learn to turn that way except for the idea that learning switch riding in the first place meant that you would never be caught with the “wrong” foot forward… a real bonus if you come around a corner in your opposite stance because of some move you had to make and then being confronted with a drop where it would be a miracle if you could stop. Anyways… blah blah blah… the ramblings of an instructor type who can’t help but analyze things. As before though, this was a pleasure to watch in so many ways. From filing to editing to soundtrack, a real treat for the eyes and ears. Thanks for the effort Braydon and Team.

Round Up: 13 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
“You will work in person 5 days a week in our Boulder HQ” “You will live in the storeroom 7 days a week in our Boulder HQ” Now that 65k a year makes sense.

Frameworks Announces 2024 Racing Team with Angel Suarez & Asa Vermette Joining Neko Mulally
With how easy (free) it was to watch the juniors last year, I knew more about them than the pros. If that continues, it’ll be amazing to see Asa light up that category along with the other strong (but more importantly, loose) juniors.
