Interview: Pinkbike Academy Winner Evan Wall After His 14th at EWS Tweed Valley
It was nice to meet Evan this year in Finale and Scotland. He is a genuinely nice guy and you can tell he has a hunger to do well at his trade. Good luck in the future Evan. Hopefully we see you full time on the EWS circuit.

RockShox's Reverb AXS XPLR Dropper is For More Than Just Gravel
@sherbet: 6'2" here and need a 200mm dropper on my large Rocky Altitude. I have long legs and shorter torso, so the 200 works perfect for me. Newer frames generally have very short seat tubes anymore so if you are a tall rider and in-between sizes like I am with my long legs and shorter torso, it makes sense.

Interview: Andréane Lanthier Nadeau on the Massive Crash That Took Her Out of Contention for the Win - EWS La Thuile 2021
Your points are very true. I joined the Rocky Mountain Race Face team last year as a mechanic working with Tara, Trotter, ALN, Jesse and Remi. You could not ask for a better team dynamic than what we have. I am the "newbie" on the team, but was taken in by this fabulous bunch from the start. The success of a team comes from the top down and Tara is that person that cements this team together. What you see of the team on the "outside" is true and mirrors what happens behind the scenes. I have worked with many teams and athletes in the past 20 years and what Rocky has is indeed something very special and not easily replicated- by far the best group of humans I have ever worked with. Hey, pass me the maple syrup and more espresso please.

Video & Photo Story: Take A Lap with the Orbea Enduro Team's Vid Persak
These Orbea video's are the best team/rider perspective pieces I have seen. Wonderful insight to the riders and their lives outside the "tape". Very tastefully done. Keep up the good work Vid and see you out on the EWS circuit.

Orbea to Move US Operations to Boulder, Colorado
If I am not mistaken, Orbea USA's general manager, Nick Howe formally worked for Trek and then was part owner Cutting Edge later Trek Store in Boulder. I do not know if he is originally from Boulder, but know he has Boulder roots. Probably a strong reason for moving Orbea to Boulder? I am a former 25 year resident of Boulder County, but finally had enough and recently relocated to Spain. Ironically, I do ride an Orbea Oiz now. Haha.
