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.

Tech Briefing: Tools, Green Initiatives, Inexpensive Bikes & More - June 2020
Pinkbike is not a US only website and their focus is not humanitarian or political, its mountain bikes. If they feel the need to release a statement on their support or viewpoint, thats just fine. But otherwise its perfectly reasonable for them to continue releasing normal content right now. I would not expect or want Pinkbike trying to write articles about what happening anyways. As thats not their expertise, and nobody needs their every website flooded with coverage of whats going on. Its unhealthy. I encourage everyone, put the screens down for a few, unplug so to speak, and let your amygdala return to normal size and get some emotional reprieve from this hectic world. I say that with genuine empathy and concern for my fellow man.

Video: Mountain Bikers Do Moto in 'Liftoff'
In terms of skills involved and riding techniques. Moto and MTB are extremely similar in many ways. A lot of mountain bikers whom have never ridden a modern dirt bike would be blown away at how quickly and easy it is to adapt or even go back and forth. Both are vastly rewarding in their own and overlapping ways, and riding one makes you better on the other. I've been riding both obsessively for the last 15+ years and often have a hard time deciding which activity to do some days.

The Best Tech from Maribor Downhill World Cups
I remember drooling over the M9. Ended up getting one. Now it hangs on the wall, seldom ridden. How times change. Always some new gizmo we strive for.

Glad Michelin is back in the game. Used to run their tires back in the 26x3.0 days and they were fantastic

@fast-n-loose-podcast: Not any more. Nomad gets all the attention. I keep the M9 for bike park trips though.

No, lots of other brands have done this on and off for many many years. Intense and Specialized, among others, have had it on bike nearly 20 years ago.
