dh is my passion, but have been focusing more on all-mtn "Enduro" style riding these last few years. I used to race with sponsorship. But only do occasional races for fun now. I ride Moto almost as much as bikes. Currently have a Husaberg FE 570 S.

Founding board member of Mount Shasta Mountain Bike Association (MSMBA).

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
I wash on an "as needed" basis, or before major maintenance. Dont worry much about dust, but do keep dirt from building up. So depending on weather and season, the frequency can vary a lot. Chain does gets a regular wipe down and lube though.

Video: New Brakes From Magura, Shimano, & TRP - Eurobike 2018
@rockchomper: heads up. Even in an incognito tab, your boss can still see what your doing if they wanted to look.

@scott-townes: yeah, got better bike options now. Next trip will entail more days in Squamish and hopefully Pemberton too.

Destination Showcase: Whistler, BC - The Perfect 4 Day Itinerary
My last five Whistler trips have gone as follows. day 1, Squamish trails. Day 2-5, ride park. Day 6, drag aching body out of bed and ride more park, even though your body's screaming for mercy. Day 7-10, ride more park and struggle with grip strength and pain the whole time. Day 11, 16 hour driving mission back to home. Day 12, call in sick to work because you can hardly move.

Pinkbike Poll: Is There a Chain Guide on Your Bike?
Broke the guide on my DH bike a few years ago. Ran without a few runs by necessity. No problems what so ever and have yet to throw the chain, with narrow wide ring and clutch derialer. This includes 10 days at Whistler and the equally rocky and rough local trails. Only run a bash now. Pedals noticeably better without the lower roller. Only run a bash on my Enduro rig too.

Interview: Chris Ball, Director of the EWS - 'Why Would We Mess With A Good Thing?'
I cringed when I first read the name WADA (Anyone who follows motocross or supercross knows why). Glad to see its CADF handling the testing.

Online Deals: June 2018
How can these companies justify a sticker price of nearly $300 for a pair of riding glasses. Yes there are cheaper options, but it's still just gros.
