Video: Hitting Motocross Jumps With A Dirt Bike Tow In
Meh, if that's what you like, who am I to dump on your enjoyment. But I find the fest riders going just as big without a tow to be so much more impressive.

2022 Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Winner
To the new eMTBer..... You learn a lot of skills putting in the work. Your ebike may now get you up a lot faster and easier, but it's not going to help you navigate down. When you crash because you were going too fast on your new toy, you might just appreciate that the old way is still the best way to learn.

Opinion: The Proxy War Between Discovery & Red Bull Is Official
My other sport of interest is Formula 1 racing, which is a niche sport in the US. the races are broadcast live, so coming from other parts of the world can mean some odd hours. I can watch F1 for "free" assuming I have ESPN. I assume with discover, we will get an edited broadcast shown in more favorable hours. That will likely leaving me wanting for RedBull coverage. If we are lucky, They will choose the F1TV model, and have a live stream, and access to prior events on demand. I pay about $100 USD a year for this service, and I'd happily pay that for good coverage of MTB races.

Christchurch Adventure Park ‘Bro Zone’ Renamed ‘O-Zone’ Following Social Media Backlash
@cwatt: it used to be, not anymore. I've heard the term used by women referring to their daughters. I though it was weird, then I was told I was just old, which I am.

5 Things We Learned from Red Bull Rampage 2021
A standout for me was that the weather was good, and that made for great second runs and a better show. You can't predict the weather, but knowing how good the show can be when the weather is good should mean ideas for how to do this event either over a few days or with weather options should be priority.

Opinion: Freeride is Dead, Long Live Freeride
Well written. Some observations though. I think when rampage was early and the feat was making it down the mountain, we got to see that it looked hard. Seeing a slightly over-rotated 360 huge drop get ridden out was amazing. But when they are throwing flat spins, it makes you wonder if just getting down the mountain is no longer challenge for these riders. The reality is we just don't understand how big the jumps are, and how fast they are going.(This should be shown, since 20mph on dirt feels fast to most of us, how fast are they really going down those chutes?) As for Friday fails, I wouldn't watch if it was a series of rampage fails with those consequences. Crashes are fun when the rider walks away, and I will never tire of beginners rolling drops.

Field Test: 2022 Yeti 160E - The All-Rounder E-MTB
@ElDebarge: I rarely see eMTB riders. I was out on a challenging ride last week-end where they race one of the Big mountain enduro races. I saw two young guys hauling up the mountain on ebikes, and a bunch of old men on mostly old bikes pounding out elevation.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would It Take For You to Become a Faster Rider?
I'm with ya. But if I could figure out how to take flat corners faster, I'd have more fun.

Ruff Cycles Launches World's First e-Dirt Jump Bike
Only the very skilled should be riding jumps so large, and if you are that skilled, then you can pedal and pump.

10 Mullet DH Bikes from Round 1 British National Downhill Series
It's a marketing thing for some and a useful solution for others. Clearly you think people only ride to race, but you are very wrong about that. Only a small number of mountain bikers race. Most ride for fun. As a smaller person who jumped on the marketing hype of 29" bikes, I feel I was sold an inappropriate solution for my body size. While there was nothing "wrong" with a full 29" bike, The mullet is more fun to ride, which is why I ride.
