Video: Ripping Slick Jungle Trails in Costa Rica With Jeff Kendall-Weed & Surviving the Emergency Room
Doesn't surprise me at all that a Costa Rican would recommend their "competition" if they thought they might be able to help you out in a batter way. They're seriously the nicest people on the planet down there, which is probably why I don't know many people who have only gone once, everybody seems to plan their return trip in the airport on their way home. Definitely need to drop the wife off at a spa and get some riding in next trip, hero dirt everywhere!

Video: Exploring Coffee Trails in Colombia with Anita & Caro Gehrig
Costa Rica is weird in that there’s great coffee everywhere, the rest of the major coffee producing countries I’ve been to have very average coffee unless you seek it out. When I was in Chiapas Mexico, I ended up at Starbucks, at least they had actual Chiapas coffee. Best Espresso I’ve ever had was at a truck stop in Costa Rica, and it was like $0.25. Leave that country with the caffeine jitters every time @chezotron:

If they don’t come in purple, what’s the point?

Good Month / Bad Month: June 2018
@enrico650: "More like keep him from signing elsewhere, riding a decent bike, winning everything, and proving what garbage Specialized bike are" - Most PB commenters Really though, if that rumor is true, I hope whatever role he moves into keeps him racing and riding very publicly, like a slightly less cool version of Jill Kintner. I've run into him a couple times on the local trails, and have friends who ride with him now and then when he's in town and he's a solid character. Weird how bad luck strikes though, he, Graves, Rude, Gwin and Cody Kelly seem to be pretty good friends, they ride and train together a ton, and all of them seem to be on the struggle bus in one way or another at the moment.

Interview: Chris Ball, Director of the EWS - 'Why Would We Mess With A Good Thing?'
@eriksaun: The major difference is that other sports federations didn't put up the same facade as UCI. They had rampant doping and simply didn't care, UCI had rampant doping while enacting "strict anti doping measures". If you were presented opportunities to skirt doping regulations, then IMHO, there are no doping regulations. I have the same criticism when it comes to the IOC, when there are well known, and gaping holes in your anti doping protocols, you don't get to prattle on about clean sport and I don't recognize the federation's involvement as a good sign for anti doping. As for managing the races, okay, I guess you can count that as a win for UCI. However, hasn't EWS been pretty damn good at that all along? Hosting races that are arguably every bit as complex as anything on the UCI calendar, in Countries that are far more difficult to work in. I don't see what the addition of the UCI brings to the table. Local event organizers will always be the most important part of putting on an event, something EWS will still have to source outside of UCI. Not saying you have to agree with my opinion, I've been involved with and a fan of professional cycling for decades and have yet to see UCI bring much of anything to the table that couldn't be accomplished just as well without them.

@eriksaun: the UCI has a long history of allowing doped up athletes to compete anyway, or mysterious,y throw out positive tests. Remember the Armstrong era? When they simply ignored doping so that they could claim they'd fixed the last doping epidemic? I have no doubts that the same thing is going on at a lesser level today in other disciplines, and if big money ever comes back to MTB racing, it will effect the knobby tired disciplines the shame way. EWS doesn't need UCI to get access to WADA, they'll work with any sanction that wants their help. As for the governence, and how it relates to rule creation and enforcement, again, the UCI has a nearly perfect tract record of making utterly terrible decisions.

I'm still struggling to see the positive here. More doping control, I guess that's good, but the UCI has been comically terrible at catching dopers. The trophy of Nations sounds mildly interesting, but I don't see why the UCI would need to be involved. Beyond that, uh, governance, I guess? You mean that part where they suck at everything, everybody hates them and interest in the sport at a professional level seems to be evaporating? That also sounds slightly less than good.

18 Accessories We Like - 2018 Summer Gear Guide
FWIW, I got that exact Yeti cooler as a wedding present, it kinda sucks. It holds ice for about 6-7 hours if you have a normal amount of beer in it and leave it in your car on a hot day, and the "sealed" zipper is 100% not sealed. Better off getting the $35 Ozark Trail from Walmart, only slightly less insulation, but you save a shitpile of money and you don't have to worry about some asshole stealing it because it's a $250 freaking cooler!

ASG Group Acquires Ellsworth Bikes
I’m convinced Ellsworth has been an elaborate money laundering scheme for some time now. How else could they possibly still be around?

Tech Randoms - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
Glad to see red brake calipers making a comeback. Used to want a set of Grimecas so bad, I knew they were garbage, but I needed them in my life.
