I started riding bikes as a young child but being the only one in my family that had an interest in biking it didn't come easy. A small shop in Manitou Springs called Just Riding Along took me under their wing and showed me what real biking meant. I started to race DH and work on my own bike along with many other life lessons in that little shop. It's closed now, but it's hard to look at a bicycle without reminiscing back to the days of my youth spent at that shop.

15 Short Travel Slalom & Slopestyle Bikes - Crankworx Innsbruck 2019
@vinay: It must have been circa 2006-2008 that I watched 4X live at Anglefire. That course was rowdy and if there was a tour with courses like that and Redbull backed it like they do Crashed Ice, I think it would be a highly followed series.

Video: Thomas Vanderham is a Trail Bike Boss
Such a beast on a bike. The Return to the Rockies video for the re-release of the Slayer is my favorite promo video ever...this OneUp one may now own that title though.

@yupstate: Something different...a Slayer on 29" wheels would count as different :)

0:14 claims a number of riders every year; many are not nearly as lucky with threading between those aspens...ask my collarbone how I know

The 10 Best Edits of 2018
Just taking entertainment value into consideration, the Stumpy advert should have made this list as well. Connor at Retallack is the best one on the list though.

Video & Photo Epic: Kurt Sorge Goes Wild in the Dogtooth Range
Wow! Kurt, thank you for not only having the vision and skill to ride all of these incredible lines, but also for the eloquence in which you wrote about the experience. It could be that I am just a handful of hours from getting in the truck and driving the 14hrs to Nelson but I think the chills that I have may have more to do with your writing and photos that are shared here.
