Interview: Anneke Beerten on Changing Focus, Training & Vlogs
Really good to read these types of articles. Exposes a lot of what it’s like to be a top tier athlete in the MTB world. These people work so hard above and beyond just concentrating on their riding. It’s almost like their elite privateers. They can get dropped by sponsors, (because they got sick) they do all the legwork negotiating contracts, deal with language barriers as it’s an international sport, aaaand need to make sure they’re in top physical/mental form. I’m not sure how this works at the elite level in traditional sports but it seems to me that members of the NBA, MLB etc. have an easier time once they reach even the top level of minor leagues. Time for all you top tier MTB athletes to think about a rider’s organization? Just a thought. You folks all work waaay too hard on peripheral stuff it seems.

Review: Kitsbow’s Glove Collab with Mechanix is Comfortable, But Flawed
I think it’s great that Kitsbow is doing these collaborations with other companies. The dye thing is an issue but that’s because it’s a natural material with varying degrees of porosity. That’s going to react with some people’s sweat. If they were driving gloves no one would notice because you simply don’t sweat while driving the way you do when MTB riding. But honestly I got a Kitsbow shirt for Christmas (my wife is very cool) it’s the one made with Pendleton wool another collaboration. The fit is perfect. One of the most comfortable things I own. Great temp control. Can ride in 20’ Fahrenheit weather with just a base layer and that shirt no problem. Even when you stop for a snack break you don’t get chilled because wool is so good at regulating body temp. They honestly do make very nice stuff. Yes it’s pricy but it’s not pricy just to be brand label pricy. Can’t speak to these gloves as I don’t own them but I’ve got nothing but good things to say about their icon shirt.

Video: Hazzard Racing Kicks Off With Orange Bikes, Steep Turns, & Jesus
That’s too funny. “Gwinny’s shed never had a dartboard” As Jesus plays darts. First laugh I’ve had all day. And damn those are some sweet bikes.

Cam Zink Launches Non-Profit Trailbuilding Company
What an awesome idea. You’re a class act Cam. I was out building with the local volunteer park group yesterday along with my boy. The leader of the group is a very dedicated guy. He told me they’ve gotten approval for so many trail projects in the city of Philadelphia but they simply don’t have the man power to complete things. The world needs a company like yours.

The Guy Who Designed Chromag's Doctahawk Hardtail Explains Why It's So Long & Slack
I really wish they’d build this bikecwith smaller wheels and a slightly shorter reach for people 5’7” and under. I’m intrigued after reading this article. Sadly it’s not made for us shorter people. (Cue up Randy Newman)
