Concussion: Katy Curd's Story - Video
Props to all in this sport, riders, and sponsors alike for confronting this issue head on and owning it. Not like another mainstream sport that has spent years in denial and even fought some of it's best players in court when they tried to reclaim their lives. KUDOS to mountain bikers. This is how you find solutions to problems. You're hardly able to research an issue and apply that knowledge toward a solution if you spend all your time and energy denying a problem even exists. It'll be sports like ours that drive the research and fund the technology and medical advances to hopefully make all sports head injury prevention more effective and recovery quicker. Thanks so much Katy and Rose for doing this project. My whole family is involved in this sport and we need people like you.

Hardtail Hucking 2.0 - Video
He'll never do another video like this one. Unfortunately that last huck caused his balls to be permanently impacted up into his body! Damn that looked painful.

The UCI's New XC Discipline and Increased Prize Money for 2018
Honestly I'm beginning to think that the UCI should stay out of MTB altogether. They really don't seem to get it. Seems that they're obsessed with riding bikes on smooth surfaces. Short, flowy wide track for plenty of passing? Uuuuuum why don't they just pave it and give em road bikes? The UCI doesn't understand mtb. I'm guessing that's because most of the people sitting at the top of the organization are old curmudgeons that have never thrown a leg over the top of a mtb. A bunch of washed up old roadies. These are the folks making decisions for the sport of mtb? This has to change.

Mondraker Bikes Coming to the US
My wife started riding without a year of training. With zero, and I mean zero trail experience. She started on a crap Trek Cali. Because she wanted to get in shape and ride with her children and husband out on the trails. This past Christmas Santa stepped her up to an SC Bronson. She's out on that bike all the time pushing herself to get better and stronger. Always texting me her loop times etc. she's scared of trail features she can't ride over yet, she's frustrated that she still huffs and puffs her way up hills that others just breeze up. But never ever did she say "Gee this is too hard. Can I have an Ebike?" Nope not my wife. I'm damn proud of her. So that bit about the wife just wanting to ride with her husband is crap. Earn your turns dude earn your turns

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
This is a really thought provoking article. On the one hand you're looking at a craft; yes carbon fibe layup is a hand skilled craft. Just one that's not done in the west primarily for a whole host of reasons. Hand skills are vitally important, and we as a culture have all but lost them. On the other hand carbon fiber is very toxic and wasteful. It's a technology that is actually still young. Engineering on the molecular scale could go a long way into the sustainability of carbon products. Automation and AI have some serious human impact issues as well which we will see in the no too distant future. The primary problem is the lack of regulations and environmental controls surrounding the process. Companies choose to do anything they can for short term profitability. The price of a product doesn't actually reflect its actual cost in the terms of worker's pay, and environmental impact. I'm giving a TEDx talk on basically this very topic later this month at TEDx Utica. tedxutica.com It's a topic that needs to be addressed.
