This year saw the return of snow to the local mountains between Vancouver and Whistler. Riders from the sea to sky corridor searched the north shore to satisfy their addiction for bikes. The shore is iconic for its slick woodwork and low-speed technical riding, this year there was a serious change in the air. With trail bikes now becoming even slacker, lower and longer they cried to be ridden faster.
It's not hard to see the changes in trail building in the last five years, faster corners, bigger jumps and higher speeds. Not to mention the amount of new riders out there, which is such an awesome thing. It's always bothered me that people call it "dumbing" down, I say, "go faster, you will find that tipping point soon enough." The trail building is seriously outstanding and the NSMBA needs support to keep building bigger hits and faster corners. So buy your memberships, then you won't feel so bad when you're slamming turns.www.nsmba.ca
