Awesome nod to Stephen Ettinger - that dude is a total ripper in his own right.

I'd much rather see DH and Cyclocross, but you do you UCI.

Jess Blewitt Earns Red Bull Helmet
@nateb: The sketch kids you speak off probobly bought their wings. Wings arent to be bought, or put on yourself. You earn wings by bringing your energy to the scene day in day out, letting your light shine, and proving time after time that you are FAMILY. Just by being a solid kid. Wings are a big deal, and i didnt even understand that until i got my helmet. Having a pair of wings on you does a lot for you. Regardless of the few sketch kids who either have spent to much time on FMB tour or bought their wings and helmeted themselves, when someone sees you have your wings, they know you've been around a minute and that your trustworthy, and most importantly, that you are family. It took me years to get my wings and i didnt even realize i was being watched and that i was wanted. Im a terrapin over the Bulls. Mine was worn for years by the kid who helmeted me before they were put on me. I caught the NWD videos, but i dont consider myself to be a Freerider kid by any means. I love the classic VHS, but it just wasnt my scene, i missed that wave. Having wings and all that comes with it really has nothing to do with the dual crown forks or single crown, its about family, and what this scene is all about at its heart. It says a lot for a person if they have their wings.

Jess Blewitt Earns Red Bull Helmet
Getting your Red Bull helmet is a BIG deal, and its a huge thing. If its done right, its planned in advance and its a huge surpise to the kid in question. My helmeting was a huge deal, and happened the night after Crankworx after everyone left and our kids got permission to stay on the land for a few days and ride up before we left for yellowstone and glacier during the off days between whistler and rotorua. Camp was kicking, a few off our kids where in the kitchen getting dinner ready, some kids were getting the fire started, and me and dawn and few others where out on an aline mission. This was just after the sun went down, we where walking up to camp (camp goodness sponsored by cookies, that is!!!) when 7-8 of our kids are walking towards me with this distinct look on their face. Now, about my actual Red Bull helmeting.. Catch me in the real world sometime, ill tell you over a beer, but something like that is just to personal to discuss over the internet. Lets just say it was special. I will say this, after i got the helmet, dawn gives me this huge kiss and is like "baby you deserved that." After i got the Red Bull helmet we all had a huge celebration. It was a special time. We had a huge family dinner, and after dinner beers and blunts came out and everyone got ceremonially stoned by Tippie.
