Hey all as the PMB Track builder - I want to clear up some issues behind the statements made that this is (60%) of the world cup track - what you see here is NOT a world cup track - there are a TON of deviations off the track that will be utilized for the World Cup - this was a national event that went around all the new sections that are being built for the World Cup - so before all of you have hissy fits - wait until the event ... and then you are most welcome to complain as eveyone who doesnt ride the track always does.

The actual track has a ton of new sections - with the only thing that is the same in this video being the pedal from the tabletops and a bit of the bottom section ...

Just letting everyone know before they all have a meltdown in front of their PC's like has happened on Dirt's facebook page already.

Cheers
Nige - the PMB Track builder and Manager

Who here has actually ridden PMB?

It may not be steep and rooty like the European courses, but those who have ridden it will know that it has its own challenges, and DH sized cahonas are still needed.

Exiting the gully at over 70kph (44mph) and hitting a large step down then 2x 24m (79ft) tables... not for the faint hearted. Could 9 is also way trickier than it looks on camera.

As for the "but they're using enduro bikes" argument. Some riders at Rampage use medium to short travel slopestyle bikes. It doesn't make it any less of a "Big Mountain" event.

So what PMB may lack in steep rooted rocky gradient, it more than makes up for in speed and big hits.

I personally think it would be boring if all WC tracks were alike. It's nice to have varience. The course designers have done a brilliant job with what they've got (note that they trail build part time and have full time jobs). At last years World Champs, the rider feedback was very positive. It seems most of the negative insights come from those who have never ridden it themselves.

If you guys are ever in SA with a bike (DH or Enduro, haha) give PMB a go, you may just like it!

Cheers, Noah.

So many other companies are replacing or “upgrading" their 26-inch bikes with 27.5 that the question needed to be answered - is the SB75 a viable SB66 replacement? We knew a lot of people were wondering if that was the case. If not, where does it fit in?

Yeahh... I thought that comment didn't post but still, 6 inches is overkill for these trails. There wasn't anything gnarly, just seemed like a really intense sunday ride with the buds on some great XC trails.

Yeah, it is still cool there was a race at all- which is better than no race. I would also not classify a 1 stage, 16 minute race as an enduro. I'm just getting defensive over the amount of descending and speed. It's probably because it is so new in the US and I want it to grow to be as fun as the enduro scene in europe that I get nit picky with US events. Bring on Park City

While it's easy to point out the lack of vertical descending one must understand it's still spring. At first i wasn't too interested in attending either..but of course, spring rolls around and everyone is signing up and ready to RACE! I had a great time despite the courses being pretty pedally. Great camaraderie, fun trails and an excellent overall event. Remember, there is a MBE race in moab that has 7000' of descending late summer when the high mountains dry out!! The Enduro Cup at Canyons Resort had 1500' of climbing and 3000' of descending last year with one gondola ride and 2 climbs. I think America gets it.
