Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk’s Contra - Video
Ok, massive respect for this guy. He’s gone well past the riding thing. He’s got that. He can use his riding as an expression of visual art. He’s actually capable of making artistic statements with his riding, as just one element of the media. This whole piece conveys an air of ominous foreboding. Kind of expresses how the world feels in this present age. It strikes you emotionally. It stands up as a pice of actual artwork. Massive props to you Brandon!

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
@nojzilla: I know you got downvotes here, but I gotta agree with you on this one. Not necessarily the way you expressed it, but nobody here on PB comments gets a diplomatic prize. We all rant here from time to time. I’m not a fan of big wheels either. They have their place but they are not the panacea for everything. Just ask Cam McCaul.

XTR 9100 is Here - How Did it Remain So Secret?
@cunning-linguist: I’m running Hope stuff as well. Their products are bulletproof. Great value for the money. Small manufacturer with great customer service. What’s not to like about Hope?

Julien Absalon Retires From World Cup XC
@gooutsidetoday: Granted sir I don't suffer from allergies. So I may not have that perspective. Folks in my family do, and it makes them miserable. I get that if you can't breathe your best, race performance will suffer. Nor am I suggesting everyone be a stupid as me after a crash, when all your riding buddies (including two that are medical doctors) are telling you to go to the hospital to get checked out, and you choose to drive home. A pro athlete doesn't have to worry about medical bills. He could simply say he's having respiratory issues. IDK after seeing pro athletes overcome ridiculous injuries and personal obstacles in this sport it just seems odd that such a great is laid low by seasonal allergies.

Julien Absalon Retires From World Cup XC
If he wants to switch to enduro then he should just say that. I've no doubt he could. The allergy thing? IDK. I'm getting down voted to hell but seriously. I actually miss watching him and Schurter battle it out. I mean no disrespect. It's like Conan the barbarian saying he can't go fight that giant wicked saber tooth tiger because his stomach is a little queasy. It's just not mtb enough of an excuse. I mean this is a bad ass sport. It just is. I cracked a rib at my sternum junction back in Nov. Punctured a lung while I was at it. Got back on my bike and got a PR on the next hill climb. But yes then I thought I was dying and barely made it out of the woods. Drove myself home. Had two shots of whiskey and went to bed. Turns out my chest cavity was full of air and had to go to the hospital the next day (after going to work) and was admitted as a level two trauma. Yeah I was pretty hurt. Two weeks later I was riding trails in NC when we went down for Thanksgiving. I'd venture to say that a good majority of PB readers/riders would've behaved no differently than me. Even if he's suffering from severe allergies he's just got to come up with something better. Or simply retire. He doesn't need an excuse. The guy's been an absolute champion level rider.

A pollen allergy? A runny nose? Sneezing? Watery eyes? RU Kidding me? C'mon this is supposed to be mountain biking? You've got to come up with something better than that. If you want to retire, just retire. You've won plenty of races at the highest level of the XC discipline. You've got nothing to prove or justify. But allergies????? Sniffles? Dude.

Day 1 Photo Report: EWS France - Rocks, Roots, & Rain
These races look so great. We're lucky our sport has such amazingly talented and passionate photogs to record these moments. Honestly wish this race could be broadcast in some way but I know enduro doesn't lend itself to that at all. Hats off to the athletes, organizers, and photographers, and of course PB, for bringing us these snapshots of such incredible moments.

It's because she wasn't using "Huck Norris" Everybody knows Huck Norris is best. Better even than "Moar Air"

Video: We Love Early Season Escapes to Vancouver Island
Ok this is on my bucket list. This looks like my idea of a dream vacation. Trails, fresh brewed ales, and fireside tales of the day gone by. What else do you need?

Steve Peat's Steel City DH Highlights 2018 - Video
I’d love to come to this event one year and ride it. Looks like so much fun. Good on you Peaty and local conservation group for saving the land for wildlife and biking! All mtb riders need to be conservation minded like this. Our sport is based on having forests and natural open terrain to ride in.
