Video: Joe Barnes Shares his Wet Weather Bike Setup from EWS Zermatt Including Homemade Heated Grips
Always wear pants when it is cold and wet. Water resistant soft shells are great unless it is going to be a long one. I don't typically bother with a water proof jacket unless I am going for a long ride or the temperature is just above freezing. Wool or another technical fabric for your layers are critical.

Video: The Mega Audi Nines 2020 Course Build Continues with a UFO Inspired Jump
The earthworks behind a big jump venue like this one is not straight forward. Riders are very fortunate with budgets like the one needed to fund the construction of this venue. As passionate mountain biker and operator, I look at it with envy. Building such a creative jump line with the latest in heavy equipment technology would truly be an unbelievable delight. I can tell you that the daily rates for those Cat excavators are not cheap, neither is their upkeep. Also, it must be nice to work with land that is relatively devoid of rocks, such clean shaping!

Results: EWS-E Zermatt 2020
Is 3 batteries not a bit generous? Part of the competition is meant to be the strategic use of battery power vs human power, no? I have done a few rides with 2000 meters climbing on ebikes and it was a fun challenge thinking about power consumption over the ride. It also was a huge learning experience for how much of a work out you can actually get on an ebike when you are not just boosting until your battery is dead.

But why are these so damn expensive! I loved this video. That Montero 3 is 7800 CAD and the part spec is just terrible.

Slack Randoms: Hellish Hail, No Foot Take Offs & Simon Cowell's ‘Ebike’ Injury
Yo, Jesse's inside line in that corner was not just some cheeky inside line, that is called cutting out a corner. Every single enduro stage in all the Enduro races can not be entirely taped off. There is not enough volunteer power in the bicycle world for that. Competitors need to have a moral code. Antics like that are just not cool. As someone who rides trials that frequently hold Enduro races, it is painful to see your favourite trail after 1000+ people have been trying to ride there bikes just like Jesse Melamed or whatever other pro they follow in hopes of shaving seconds. Trails that once had nice flowing turns turn into straight lines, which ultimately become the mainline as the strava monkeys adopt their newly discovered racer lines. Ride the trail for what it is, the line that has been established.

Video: eMTB Training Laps in Squamish with Seth Sherlock
Personally I think that the way Intense has chosen to market their e-bike is poorly planned. A tool for racers to have an easy recovery ride, or stack a bunch of laps similar to WC training does not speak to me. And for the record, I am really into e-bikes. I plan to buy one. Aaron Gwinn and Neko talking about how they can use them for recovery rides makes me feel fat shamed for wanting one. And a 20 year old simulating WC training runs is not relatable. The only part of this video that I think most EBiike customers could relate to is the beginning where Todd was shooting the shit with his hommies. Racers could theoretically benefit from Ebikes, yes; But the people who are really buying these are working class, lifestyle enthusiasts who just want to have a good time. Sell them for the fun factory's that they are.
