Inside the Tape: Slopestyle Course Preview with Rheeder, Rogatkin & Messere - Crankworx Innsbruck 2019
I think it's an extension of mountain biking in general - you see similar comradeship in the WCDH and EWS too. I find very few egos on the trail - I remember a complete random offer me some help with a puncture when I first got into the sport and I was amazed at the time but that's not an isolated thing. I was at a bike park a couple of weeks ago and everyone (and I mean everyone) either stopped to help a guy that had binned it badly in a jump or offered to help. No moaning etc. It's one of the best bits of our sport imo, and I do the best to continue the tradition!

5 Things We Learned at the Leogang DH World Cup 2019
Maybe this is another reason for Redbull to employ Cathro - he has an excellent understanding of where the races are won and lost and could perhaps advise on camera positioning? Clearly it needs to be balanced with technical difficulty (getting the camera to the location and all that goes into using it there) but it could work...

Caminade Shows Off Prototype Titanium Enduro Bike
But aren't Sick! trying to put everything right?!? (On a serious note I hope that people have got their money back now.) The whole Sick! episode has certainly tarnished my view of small brands - this company may be completely different, but I read about them and find myself thinking about whether they are another Sick! in the making... Shame.

Enter the Return To Earth 30-Day Trailforks Ride Challenge
@sarahlukas: Ha ha! I wish! Nearest trail is an hour drive away, as I live in the middle of a city. Factor in a family and work and every day becomes somewhat impossible... I'll try and channel some of the enthusiasm though!

Enter the Return To Earth 30-Day Trailforks Ride Challenge
Yeah - my dreams of attempting this were quickly ended. Shame, and whilst I get why they did it they're denying a lot of people from participation...

Video: CathroVision Practice Analysis - Fort William DH World Cup 2019
That's a nasty crash to smash the chin guard - a great advert for helmets overall. Hope she's OK...

The rider interviews are getting better and better - they really added to this episode (if that's what you call it...). Red Bull sign him up!

To be fair that was about my level of understanding! Long live Spinal Tap!

Aaron Gwin’s Race Bike Stolen in Edinburgh
@orientdave: @brncr6: Guns lead to an increase in collateral - in the recent terrorist attack in the UK (London Bridge) an innocent member of the public was killed by a police bullet if I recall correctly? Clearly there is no question there over the deadly use of force there but I use it only to illustrate that trained people under difficult circumstances can miss with serious consequences. When you more away from trained persons to criminals that likelihood increases. Knives are no joke though and, despite my flippancy above about running away from a knife, in the circumstances of a serious and determined attacker the knife injuries would likely be much more serious. Luckily that is a very rare thing, but that same that will always exist whether in a country with strict gun control or without. Debate has been good though so cheers brncr6 - happy trails!
