@Trance20112: Qatar had the World Cup because FIFA is blatantly corrupt and took the massive bribes Qatar paid to help sportswash their national image, not because it made better financial sense.

@schwaaa31: Absolutely. It was a minor sticking point. Super stoked that the trails are getting some exposure.

Agree with the locals perception of the mountain bikers. Berkshire East/Thunder is the single largest employer in the town, but that's because there isn't anything else. It's weird that a ski/bike town doesn't have a single private ski or bike shop. There's just the mountain shop, which is pretty lackluster tbh.

To be fair, the Warfield trails haven't been that great until very recently. They started out as meandering switchbacking trails with not enough interesting features, were overcorrected into fall-line enduro trails (in some case literally just straight-lines through the switchbacks. It's only been in the last two years that the Schaefers have brought in professional trail builders to make them legit. It's not like Jon and his crew are the ones building the trails.

I'm so stoked to see Western Mass getting some exposure! I grew up in VT, and lived in Bellingham, WA for a bunch of years, and in terms of accessibility to trails and quality, I'd put Western MA right up there with both of those places. Thunder and Warfield are sweet spots, but the Hawley trails are a gem, very much a backcountry experience, and within a 45 minute drive there are another seven or eight places to spend a day (or multiple days) exploring with everything from xc flow to old school rock crawling to handbuilt enduro madness. Western Massachusetts is for mountain bikers.

@CamNeelyCantWheelie: It would take a lot more than a couple months. Some infrastructure obviously exists there as it's a ski resort, but the downhill tracks haven't been used in 5 years, and none of the trails that existed there were WC caliber to begin with.

@CamNeelyCantWheelie: That's not a race course though. Big difference between sweet rugged trail descents, and the size and scope of building a WC DH track. You could definitely make one at Whiteface (most vertical drop on the East Coast!) but it would take years.
