Just Imagine how fast Phil would be if he bothered to use both wheels at the same time! More manuals than a Haynes catalogue... Absolutely killing it.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
As with any sport, there are people of every conceivable age and ability involved, right from kids (and adults) who can barely stay upright on two wheels, to seasoned professionals who are able to ride the toughest terrain that nature has to throw at us. What is so wrong with offering something for everyone? Who are we - a self confessed group of MTB nuts - to decide the proportion of 'easy' trails to techy sh*t yer pants lines? Surely the market decides. If you want to go ride 20ft drop offs and root tangles as big as a car (and lord knows, I do)... go for it, nature built it FOR YOU. But to ask little Timmy who's just turned 7 to do this would be like putting him into the front row of the starting 15 against the all-blacks! Little Timmy is going to get splattered - plain and simple. Every sport should be able to offer progression, from beginner to pro level, not everyone wants to constantly push things to their physical limit, OR for that matter, has the money to go out and spend 7 grand on an 8" DH monster. Does this mean they don't have a right to be included in the sport? Offering a range of trails to suit all abilities will keep those who really have no right to be there away from paces where they are likely to hurt themselves - leaving more challenging trails alone for those who know how to ride them. In this way, the future progression of the sport is secured, the market is pacified, and we get to carry on riding our favourite wild trails without stumbling upon little Timmy with his leg broken in 4 places miles from the nearest hospital.
