Santa Cruz Syndicate Confirms Laurie Greenland, Jackson Goldstone & Nina Hoffmann for 2022
It's odd because in real life, Jackson Goldstone looks like a pint sized Gene Wilder.

2021 Pinkbike Awards: Video of the Year Winner
The citation they gave for this award does seem somewhat condescending doesn't it. "Much to our surprise, a video that was clearly and obviously an artistic triumph was really popular with the public."

Quiz: Do You Recognize These Legends of the Sport?
I think the iconic Missy is early Volvo Cannondale, which is 94-95 as you say. Whereas somehow the iconic Miles Rockwell is at Mammoth as shown here, and not necessarily on Volvo Cannondale though he was a founding member of that team.

Point: Bring Back Dual Slalom
I was thinking about an event for people who haven't been able to get a bike due to the supply crisis, or are waiting months and months for a warranty claim. I'd call it a Weep Off.

Results: Downhill - Crankworx Rotorua 2021
The all New Zealand ultra-local commentary was awesome. Nicholai Rogatkin did a great job commenting for S&S, but so did Ed Masters for DH, especially with how much he knew about everyone. And it was a good thing too after the rain sucked most of the drama out of the proceedings that they could tell stories about how Louis Hamilton's cop father once chased Steve Peat down for an autograph.

Replay: Speed & Style - Crankworx Rotorua 2021
Rogatkin is co-commentating and just answered a question about why he doesn't race Speed and Style by explaining how having a BMX background makes it quite hard to be good a at it since you are basically having to perform all the tricks at the wrong speed. What a good commentator actually. He wins the Reece Wilson award for being a surprisingly excellent commentator when you weren't expecting it.

MUST WATCH: Reece Wallace's 'Glory Daze' is a Modern Take on Classic North Shore & Freeride
There's something I find really amusing about about this excellent edit and how it sheds light on our thinking about the past. The bike featured at the beginning must be from somewhere around 2000/2001, and it's shot in that decaying VHS tape way which is typical of what you see when you put your late 90's North Shore Extreme tapes into your still-functioning VCR. The music for this section, which per the credits is a rights free clip, is however, in a much older style. In fact, it's quite like Small Town Boy by Bronski Beat, which came out in 1984, but there are other British bands of that era which sound similar. Anyway, I thought it was really funny and interesting that they came up with early 80's music to give a throwback feel to something from the early 2000's, and I think it's because that really feels like ancient history for mountain bikes, wheres music is much less time sensitive.

Results: Andréane Lanthier Nadeau & Jesse Melamed Win the 2021 Canadian Enduro Championships
ALN actually won ny over four minutes, but since all times over four minutes are also in the set of times over two minutes, the math checks out. Props to everybody in this race, this past weekend on the south coast was incredibly wet with a full on atmospheric river, so rain and high freezing levels.
