British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
@raulgoa: yes...of course....do you know how much it cost a day of shooting here? 500€ to 1500€ and you must pay for each animal you kill. Those guys easy spend 4000-5000€ per day of hunting. Even hunting rabbit is expensive. You can ride all day long in Morzine for less than 20€. I don´t like hunting,my first mtb ride was in a hunting land property of my uncle,he used to organize those hunting party in that land. Every weekend was the same,unload a bast amount of wine boxes,food,good 5 jotas Jamón iberico at 700€ piece...Every weekend 2 or 3 dogs death by friendly fire and the land was full of plastic cases cos any of those guys take his own shit. Some guys were so drunk they never ever come back to shoot cos they were a fucking danger for the rest of the people. Hunting in Spain sucks,it is not a guy by his own trying to find an animal,it is more like shooting live targets...

@rivercitycycles: have you ever hunt surrounded by 40 guys,most of them drunk&fat&old in an area of 1 square mile? This people shoot whatever is allowed to shoot in one morning,just hours. Here in Spain most the the meat goes to the garbage bin,cos one guy shoot 10 pigs and 3 deer.

@tamallama: I Know what you mean just ridding "fluro" colors. I love black equipment but sometimes is a must. In some places like Ainsa,some trails are block/used by the hunters and you can´t ride there. Two weeks ago we were in Ainsa and we can´t ride Morcat trail,there was a tinny portion of the hunting area near to waiting area for the van,some people wants to ride there but I for me was a no-no 100%. For me is stupid let those people hunt so close to villages and populated areas. Here in Madrid people hunt inside a National Park but bikes are almost forbidden. They let the fat&old boys take the 4x4 everywhere. Hunting here is a missive thing,30-40 guys with tons of dogs hunting in a tinny area. I think it is still allowed cos hunting guys have good friends,also big portion of politicians enjoy hunting/party/drinking thing,it is not a guy with his gun looking at the trail...

@foxxyman: yes I know in US hunting scene is more diverse,it is not the same thing here. Most US citizens are used to guns in general. Those hunters here think they are over the law,in US soil most of this bad hunters have a big chance to go to jail very quick. Hunting is not compatible with any other thing else. That is why it is a stupid idea hunting in a bike park area. Think for a second mixing hunters&bikers in Whistler bike park area,were tons of bikers ride everywhere. Morzine have a bikepark and sky resorts,they make money with tourism related to Sky and Mtb. To me is no sense mixing bike&bullets.

@Loki87: totally agree. In Spain hunting is for rich people and his friends. It is not an average hobby like RC planes or MTB. That people pay X amount of money to kill,maybe any of those hunters know the place or take care about risky places. Hunting not a cheap thing here,you never see an old 4x4 in a hunting parking lot. Firearms are expensive,those people like custom guns at the prize of half a new house. It is money to some remote places and that is why they let hunters do whatever they want to do.

@philstone: yeah nothing new...same thing in Spain...they hunt in the morning but at 16 pm they are all drunk. I did not believe that those hunter are there to keep bad animals away,that is a fucking myth.

@mattwragg: Hunting is not a safe sport or activity. It is a little bit stupid IMO let people hunt in Morzine,so close to a bike park that is used by a lot of people every day. I know some places in Spain Hunter&Bikers have 0 problems,like Ainsa. But there is always a chance for a biker of being in a hunting place or very close to it without any clue.

2019 Racing Rumors: Gwin Off YT, Ratboy to Cannondale, & More
@jaame: : maybe the drug is not the problem...I´m sick about hooligan/nazi people came to Spain to drink&destroy whatever is close to them,they come to 2000 km away to stay in a pub drinking...Last time I came to Bristol I saw most bizarre high people ever in my life...Drugs are there,but if you have nothing better to do and you are a fucking ignorant that story never ends well. When young people have "nothing" to do,they take drugs is that simple. Mtb riding is a perfect way to have a kid focus on doing something.

2019 Racing Rumors: Gwin Off YT, Ratboy to Cannondale, & More
@SacAssassin: I think Gwin is more on the money side...the guy is thinking in the future,earn two or three coins to get a good life. Gwin is not a magnet for the young riders,the guy is not that kind of person. It would never be cool like Ratboy,but anyway it is one of the best riders of all time and it would be a nice rider for any team in the WC. Intense can put together a proto bike and never being worry about selling it,that is a good point to me.

First Ride: The 2019 Cannondale Habit is Shockingly Normal
My Jekyll is like that and the stiffer rear wheel is very noticeable(jekyll is only 3mm,not 6 like this new bike). You can abuse the rear wheel very badly and still rides OK. If you broke some spokes the wheel is not so fuck up. For a 29 I think it would be even more noticeable. This weekend a buddy on a new 29 Transition was friking out about a soft rear wheel when pushing really hard in Ainsa. I never own a bike with a rear end that robust and so predictable feel and the suspension design IMO is not the best in the market.
