Intermediate ???? hahahahhaa. Maybe if your usual level is Rampage, but to most mortals that's proper death and broken bones there :)

Welcome to the 2020 Pinkbike Field Test - Cross-Country Bike Edition
I feel sorry for Mike and Sarah here, they've ridden countless miles, set KOMs and blown heart rates out of the window then all we see is "why haven't you tested XYZ, it's pointless". They can't test every bike ever made by man just so everyone can compare anything they may have considered buying in the last decade. It's a great line up of bikes and information. Thanks lots guys, keep it up.

Video: Riding Big Jump Lines with Sam Reynolds
You missed the bit where you turn up at Swinley to surprise Tom's new favourite youngsters who he was showing the hero drop to last weekend. I'm blaming all your videos for my boy turning into a jump crazy monster ha ha.

The Matchup: 2020 Norco Optic or Sight? - Trail Bike vs All-Mountain Bike
@brianpark: Very much so. A comparison for a normal kind of rider of a 5km trail riding both a 140mm and 170mm offering from the same factory would be exceptionally useful. It's the sort of thing that we as MTBers think about lots. For me it was a "would i be faster on the Whyte T-130 or the G-160" but also "where would i be slower and how much will that bother me". I went for the G-160 in the end and accepted certain XC limitations of it... But that sort of comparison would be very useful

Video: 7 Year Old Crosby Zoomerman Hits a 24 Foot Double For the First Time
Interesting comments on here. My boy is 11 and not at this level, but only 1 step below him really and jumping tables and gaps about 12' in length. But never once have I told him to jump something, he just really wants to. He's been for 1:1 coaching and the coach was impressed at his skill and speed of learning. I've questioned a few times if my lad has the skills or whether it's luck, time and time again lucky. But then he shows me he actually has the skills by moving the bike about in the air, picking his landing spot and angle and a variation of jump styles to reach a goal. Always laughing always smiling. Well apart from the big hill he has to ride back home! As a parent you learn that fear is a tough one, they don't have any, they don't see consequences of their actions, so you end up dragging them back in and saying no! Forcing them to stop, consider their jumps and getting them to think a bit. I don't do Instagram etc but I put video up for a few mates to see, but don't see it wrong that someone does. When I show videos of my boy jumping I get reactions that I shouldn't or "how can you ....." Etc. The answer is, because he wants to. I don't drag him there. https://youtu.be/SfU8G75gIxo Tricky one for Pinkbike and the Dad

Millyard's Hyper Ride Shock Returns
@millyard: I look forward to that lots. Whilst i don't 'get' some of the things that come out of your old mans workshop, mostly because i'm a bit of a purist on motorbikes and don't honestly grasp why some of the changes are made other than 'to see if we can', i think the quality of work and the deisgns are absolutely astounding and having seen some of your/his work at Calne bike show a few times it's truly astounding what you fellas do. So having more information can only be a brilliant step forward.

Interview: Henrique Avancini on Being Broke in Europe, Racing Rivalries, MTB Growth in Brazil, & Much More
Excellent read. He's one of the guys i really enjoy seeing race as you can see he thinks "Right, i'm going all out, if i hit the wall i hit the wall" and whilst that may not be the most effective tactic in some ways, it's great to see. It's not all about sitting there thinking "OK, finish 3rd and get the WC points for the overall"... it's just "attackkkkkkkk" I don't see the troubles of his Brazillian heritage as a bad thing, sometimes it's tough to dig out from the underdog status in life, get that level of belief. He's not the first and not the last to find that the others out there are just normal humans too, well apart from MVDP who's surely half alien :)
