Video: Whistler Bike Park Opens This Friday
I completely shattered my right collarbone (9 screws!) 2 years ago on a botched jump on Merch resulting in a high-speed OTB, resulting in Whistler Medical Clinic visit #1. Then last year I shredded my right forearm on a stupid slide-out during a warm-up on B-line (!) of all places, resulting in clinic visit #2 to pick out multiple pieces of gravel from my forearm (but only about 45 min loss of trail time, thankfully). For those visiting Canada (those from the US especially), drop the $20-40 to get a week’s worth of travel / disaster insurance, it will pay for itself many times over if you end up needing local medical care before they send you on your way. Several companies offer this and mountain biking is not an excluded activity for coverage, apparently they haven’t caught on yet....

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
@chrod: Had an ebike sighting at Ted Williams yesterday morning. Not sure if it was the same guy but he and his three non-motorized buddies were blaring rock/metal music out of their backpacks. What really pissed me off is that they started climbing UP the switchbacks of mid/upper Sidewalk (i.e. one of the worst places on the trail to go the wrong way) because they were too lazy / out of shape / whatever to take the straight line up the trail. I chased them down (with me riding up the main line) and let them have it purely on the merits of creating a major safety hazard by going up on a tight one-way down trail. Didn't have enough spare breath to launch into a tirade about e-bikes or simply not being a douche by blaring out loud heavy-metal on the trail... We have a fragile truce at TW with the nearby neighborhood and property owners as it is...

Between the Woods - Video
I had the privilege of riding at Mt. Horshan with local Israeli colleagues about 10 years ago while on a business trip. This is clearly a different trail system but I hope my old friends are in the know about (and enjoying) this one...

Trail Boss Jeff Lenosky – La Milagrosa – Video
@sooner518: Yeah, I don't recall Emma Long requiring any stoppie-turns to avoid plummeting off the side of the trail...

2014 Cane Creek Double Barrel Air w/ climb switch in good condition, rides well. The shock has seen moderate use and there are a few minor nicks on the air canister and body, but the shock stanchion is free of any nicks or scratches. Am selling because I have upgraded to a newer rear shock. Asking $160 or best offer. Will ship for free within the US.

Troy Lee Designs Speed Knee Sleeve - Review
Uh oh - I don't see a "250 lbs max" sticker on the canister of the rear shock (last pic). STEP AWAY from the X2, buddy... it's for your own good....
