Video: Gee Atherton Rides Moab's Portal Trail
Portal is a rad trail. Decent exposure in a couple spots; the most dangerous bit is right before the first hard cut in the vid. You see a red sign (it says "GET OFF YOUR BIKE NOW", ha). I actually think the lower, unexposed part of the trail is the harder bit- you see him high side a hard left, stall, mutter something like "ohmygaawd" and then roll it. Just a bunch of really tough moves in steep-but slow jank. One other thing that makes portal "harder" than most trails is that you have a solid pedal just to GET to it. I can't remember that stats of the top of my head, but it is a solid mornings' ride (couple hours plus) with decent elevation gain on Moab-blue trails (meaning ledgy, punchy, fun) just to get to the top- then you have a solid bit of blue/black on Gold Bar, which if you choose the black adventure, has some solid moves- and then you finish the day with Portal. So unless you have good fitness, most of the people that ride portal are already beat to sh*t and tired before they start it. All that said it's on the whole one of the best days you can spend on a bike.

2022 Pinkbike Awards: Send of the Year Nominees - The Most Committed 360 & 2 HUGE Straight Airs
Agree. Caleb shorts that, catches that wooden lip wrong, and death is a serious possibility. Not to say the other sends aren't worthy, but at least those dudes would rag doll downhill if they crashed, this guy was about 6 inches from his rear wheel being on the wrong side of a wood wall. Not to mention the giant sharp granite boulders that he'd be smashing into. All of em are amazing, but Lights Out was just that.

Would be cool to know how they compare to past favorites, like the Specialized Stumpy EVO and the WAO Arrival.

Jordan Williams Moves on from Madison Saracen
I'm mostly excited that the editors have parted ways with using "parts ways" in every team announcement

Tech Week 2023: 7Mesh's Fall Apparel Collection
I get it, it is nice when a company backs it's products. That said, they can still be repaired; and locally. They were 140$; but you did get 5 years of heavy use out of them.
