Perhaps. And after a really bad crash it will be Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

Bike Check: R-Dog's Hawaiian Theme Trek Session - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Goddamn I loved that show. Ferrari, choppers, dobermans. The theme song rocked during the guitar bits. Gonna listen to it now. Ta for the memory.

The Summertime Cast Blues
@jrocksdh: My wife and I lived in the USA for three years while she did a post-doc. My employer wanted to keep me after three years and offered us the chance to stay much longer. There were two main reasons we didn't stay in the USA - one of them was cost and quality of healthcare (and we had very good healthcare through the university. You've been told that your healthcare is great but it isn't. It's terrible. Ove the long term, I'd say MTBers are cheaper on society as we use vehicles less, and studies show that people like us are a smaller burden on healthcare than... aah... less fit groups.

The Summertime Cast Blues
Busted my radius/wrist hiking (FFS!) early this year. Ortho said my wrist will heal facing upwards by 15-20 degrees or I should get a plate. Called a few mates with plates, they said "Screw it!" and had the op the next day. Very happy with my decision and it also meant I skipped the cast and went straight to a wrist brace. Universal health care is not socialism, it's awesome!!! Go Medicare!! Taj is a blast from the past, alright.

I don't know if you watched the race, but she got a flat and she should have at least been on the podium. I know it's racing and all, but I felt a little sorry for her as she battled hard in both races and her XC result didn't reflect her talent or fitness.

Pinkbike Poll: How Well Do You Know Your Mountain Bike History?
@Telemahn: Tough questions. Got 6 and 7 (probably) and I have three linkage forks plus I add the Australian Minkie for my extra point. Can't get 9 (never been there) nor 10. I'll wait for others to chime in.

Pinkbike Poll: How Well Do You Know Your Mountain Bike History?
Since many of you are asking for a quiz, why don't we throw out some questions? (No internet searching for the answers - these are all from the top of my head). And please don't put the answers so that others can ponder them. 1. Why is a trail Marin County called Repack? (classic to get us started) 2. In the 1990s, which current tire manufacturer came out with a lime green latex tube for DH racing? 3. I have a Suspenders fork and Pro Stop disc brakes on my bike which means I'm most likley riding a....? Brand and model please. 4. The green dust wipers/oil seals on a Risse Champ fork are made by which current motorcycle manufacturer? (Top points for that one). 5. Which BMX Hall of Famer was the USA's best hope for a gold in XC at the Atlanta Olympics?
