Enter to Win Fox Racing Kit - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
@Gamertebo: but will it be abdication? Or maybe a coup? We need some succession rules to avoid chaos once the unthinkable happens and sewer rat can't carry on with this sacred duty.

@plyawn: and TVS won the best trick award, for a trick that happened just before his crash.

@Jordanh604: I saw it first mentioned somewhere here on Pinkbike (can't find this article now), then found more details here. No info anywhere else, so fingers crossed it's just a mistake or fake news: https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/archive/2021/10/13/jmr-2-taken-to-hospital-following-separate-incidents-at-red-bull-rampage-venue-in-virgin/#.YWsuSdrRaf0

Anyone knows how's Reed Bogg's cameraman? The one that tumbled down the ravine in an ATV.

I don't think people complain it's tame, but that becomes close to another discipline (which is also badass). And as many point out, manicured landings are safer when compared to raw landings on same sized features. But as they are safer, they encourage riders to go bigger, giving a false sense of security. But when something goes wrong, you can't cheat physics - a crash on a bigger feature will be more dangerous than in a small one.

Moab's Whole Enchilada Trail Closed by Pack Creek Fire
@conoat: hey, this made me think. Why do we put so much effort into reducing road crash mortality? It's natural, and all these people would have died anyway... seems like a wasted effort. Should we slow down when we see a pedestrian crossing the street? Use safety belts? Do crash tests?

UK Bike Shop Chain Evans Cycles to Cut 300+ Jobs
@conoat: BTW the hunger issue is present in the UK as well and it deteriorated in the recent decade. It may be surprising it happens in first world countries, but hard to argue with the facts. https://foodfoundation.org.uk/new-food-foundation-data-sept-2020/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunger_in_the_United_Kingdom

@conoat: "no one goes hungry or dies unnecessarily in either of our countries." This is not true. Over 10% of American households are food insecure. The percentage is higher for households with children, so yes, milions of American children suffer from hunger. In most cases this is because people can't afford food. Why? There are many reasons, but this is capitalism - people try to buy everything the cheapest possible, including labour of other people. With unregulated minimal wages, Amazon and the likes pay the least they can, and being monopolists, they dictate how the market looks like. So even if people work hard, they can't sustain themselves and their families. Then other citizens and government (from tax money) have to help - food banks, or sorts of relief systems - so citizens pay because large companies are not regulated and can't be made to pay themselves for the work they benefit from. Effectively, government ends up subsidising the large companies by keeping their employees alive. https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/food-nutrition-assistance/food-security-in-the-us/key-statistics-graphics.aspx https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunger_in_the_United_States

Video: What Bikes Are The North Shore Locals Riding? - Daily Driver Bike Checks
I have to admit I very rarely watch videos and rarely open articles with titles starting with "video". I do appreciate and enjoy a well made video, but I find written articles easier to process at my own pace. I can view the whole contents at a glance, start anywhere, skip/skim some passages, concentrate more on others, compare different sections etc. Obviously I refer to methods of conveying information - it would be hard to translate a purely riding video into an article ;)
