Video: Racing the XC Olympic Champion, Jolanda Neff vs. Tom Bradshaw
Jolanda is an incredibly gracious winner. Definitely inspires me to put the ego aside and try a race just for fun.

I read this as logically. I haven't won an argument either.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Things We (Sometimes) Miss About Older Bikes
I do something similar with a rigid single speed. It is also a gut check on fitness. Palate cleanser is the perfect description because if I have had a couple bad rides or if I have a string of mechanical failures, it is a good way to confirm to myself that I still like riding even if the trail is mellow and I have no fancy gizmos to aid me.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Taught You How To Mountain Bike?
At the end of our dead end street just before the woods started, there was a hill down to a big drain that takes this old canal that was behind all the houses out to a creek about a half mile away. There was a somewhat flat clearing down there. When I was a kid (10 or so) a bunch of us got Redline BMX bikes and started "a BMX track" down there. But we didn't have work ethic, so the jumps and rollers were about 10 inches wide and 8-12 inches tall. The berms were right angles and the whole thing was maybe 15 by 20 feet. But we had the hill to get up to speed before the first berm. Needless to say the right angle berm stole all our speed and we just pedaled over the tiny bumps in the dirt. Eventually got my dad's Rockhopper to ride my bike to high school (circa 1994) but sadly never put it together to take it into the woods. Fast forward 20+ years and my parents bring that bike up to my place when my kids first got bikes (way too old) and I see an opening in the woods and I experience my first single track. "Where has this been all my life?" My ignorance about what mountain biking was is astonishing and I grew up outdoors and road cycling. Within a month, that bike was stolen but not before I almost drown myself trying to do a creek crossing by losing my front wheel and hitting my head on the shale creekbed (...twice).

Specialized Cuts Global Ambassador Program
I understand that businesses have to make hard decisions and there are real world consequences to them but the thing that makes me most uncomfortable is the "ended contracts effective immediately" language. Contract is a strong word and my be improperly used here. In my mind both parties have to hold up their end. Judging by the pictures, the rider is keeping their end of the deal. Makes me question Specialized's integrity if everything above is true.
