Bike Check: Cecile Ravanel's 2020 Commencal Meta AM 29
I see your single and/or double fractures and raise you my C2, T9, T10 and burst T12. Oh and a right ulna...in one go. Let’s all celebrate modern medicine and healing vibes to all of you who are still recovering. I’ve now had all my metal work removed and tbh, the main set back has been me becoming a right chicken. Then again, my wife is a lot more relaxed now that I don’t go too loopy on the bike.

Katz Bikes Returns With an Enduro Bike with a 'Maintenance Free' Drivetrain
The Swiss have been doing it with gold and money for centuries. I guess now that business is under some strain, they're switching to bike components.

Colorado Man Passes Away While Riding Whistler's Comfortably Numb Trail
Well, at least in Canada he wouldn't have had the medical debt. RIP

Vehicle Check: Ryan Leech's Custom Earthcruiser & Ram Power Wagon
I'm going to agree with Mr sewer-rat here. Canada's horrible in terms of emissions per capita and set ups like this surely don't help. So many of the European pro's and privateers plod around in vans that are more spacious and efficient. Besides, surely you're not going to go extreme off roading with that thing on the back. Yeah, planes are worse, but what I'm saying is that every bit helps. North Americans just love their big as trucks, snow mobiles, jet skis etc. without giving it a second thought. I for one am going to do my bit where I can. I'd love a F150 Raptor but my 2.0 engine does just fine and I'll take electric when I can afford it. Rather that than leaving a smouldering heap of trash for the next generation.

Video: Phil Atwill and Tommy C Get Weird in Greece
@IntoTheEverflow: Coming from Bulgaria, I would say it's considered much more of a Turkish desert than anything else. There is a multitude of dishes that change name and composition in the region such as stuffed vine leaves, white cheese (Feta in Greece), gyros vs pita etc. One can discuss these nuances for hours. Wait...why am I writing this on Pinkbike?

Vail Resorts to Acquire 17 Mountains in North America
It's crazy that it's cheaper to fly to Europe for skiing than staying in NA given the prices they charge. The thing that struck me skiing in Jackson Hole last year was how old everyone was. I'm just not sure how many willing clients will be left for these resorts in 20 years or so.

Destination Showcase: Mont-Tremblant, Quebec
Having just been to Tremblant this week-end, I can confirm that there are definitely some trails worth riding including a decent freeride effort. The towns, lakes and scenery are really nice. But why do there need to be 5! golf courses? It's a dying sport. They should really invest in more bike trails so people would need more than a day to ride all trails. MTB is an ever growing sport and ski shops can then at least find something to make money of in summer. As much as I like the area, they really need to get some new management with a long term plan.

5 Things We Learned at EWS Val di Fassa 2019
People can be against the UCI as much as they like, but in the end, at least there is now consistent testing of athletes. Martin's suspension is very unfortunate, but at least he owed up to it and accepts the responsibility. He presented a clear breakdown of why he ingested the substance and the reason for. He received the lightest sentence possible. The whole water bottle excuse is rather vague. Also, remember Barelli's reaction to it? https://www.pinkbike.com/news/exclusive-richie-rude-and-jared-graves-failed-drug-test-at-ews-france.html Hopefully these instances will make athletes take note of what they ingest and we won't have to question a rider in the future who barrels past other top competitors, making them look like rookies. Worse would be to let everyone have free reign as they pretty much had in the beginning. Before long the whole sport can end up being tainted like road cycling. If you look at XC, those athletes get tested continually, yet very few dramas and drug stories emerge. Checking what you take in is part and parcel of their routine. Here's to a long, successful and clean future of EWS!
