Just The Tip - Whistler Bike Park Opening 2017
That ramp is going to get people hurt. A-line needs that micro drop as a filter feature.

Pro GRT, Underworld Cup 2017 - Video
I hope super-wide aspect ratios aren't the new in thing at pinkbike. It's not like we're watching these in a theater with a 2.39:1 widescreen.

Marcelo Gutierrez - An Interview
Can you really honestly not find the "u" in Washington, District of Columbia?

No whining from this end since I'm fine with naming/spelling differences. Every country and language has interesting naming peculiarities.

Yes, Washington District of Columbia is spelled with a "U". It is how we spell all Columbus (Cristoforo Colombo) derived names. Other examples of naming differences include how we call "Côte d'Ivoire", "Ivory Coast" instead. Yet for some reason we don't translate Costa Rica. We don't spell most countries the same way as the residents of those countries do. The same is true in nearly every language. What differs here is a social or political movement bringing attention to one example of naming differences.

Absolutely not. There are dozens of spellings around the world and many have a U instead of an O. The capital of the United States is named after the same person and we spell our own capital with a U. This is obviously a political issue revolving around something other than just spelling.

Other countries call Americans, Americono. Around the globe different languages have different spellings for countries, towns, rivers, etc. Sometimes the names are completely different, or wrong depending how you look at it. I fully acknowledge pronouncing the capital of France differently and using a different name for Germany.

It's normal for nations around the world to have different names or spelling of names depending on the language being used. For example, Germans say that they live in Deutschland instead of Germany. Columbia is also spelled differently in french, german, etc... The angst over the spelling of Columbia has more to do with the feeling of empowerment and a perception of the country being unfairly controlled or portrayed by the West. I can agree with those sentiments to a degree but don't feel there is anything unusual or wrong with countries being spelled differently in different languages.

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
Poll is strange. What does fastest race bike have to do with what I want to ride? I ride to have fun. If 29er DH is more fun, i'll ride it.
