"people could easily buy a lift ticket and ride downhill trails"
true but that has nothing to do with XC trails in Moab that are not in a resort, not DH specific for 99% of the trails and are not on private, company/corporate land. Also lifts/shuttles don't rip up the trails people are trying to ride down.

Yes there might be less land use issues in Europe but comparing Europe to Moab is nonsensical.Go read up on Moab and the land use/access issues that surround it. I guarantee you its nothing like Europe... even though Europe is quite the blanketed term.

If you think comparing motorized bikes to regular bikes and comparing full suspension to hard tails is appropriate, then you're just further reinforcing the point that the people who are against this ban are seriously ignorant.

This ban isn't based on looks of your bike, bud. Go educate yourself about trail access issues facing mountain bikes and how big a part trail degradation plays in that. And yes there's a massive difference between human powered and motor-powered

People want to ban assault rifles because they're completely unnecessary but that has nothing to do with e-bikes so why bring it up? E-bikes do produce more than enough power to easily compensate for the added weight or else chubby chub chub wouldn't see any benefit from riding one. Not to mention there are plenty here that have tried a heavy e-bike and go way faster than they ever would on a light hard tail. Its not pointless at all because of what you wrote right after writing its pointless haha.

Bad. Its like giving people motorized skins and allowing gapers to travel into the backcountry. That fool in your picture would be screwed if he got a flat or tipped over on his e-bike. No protection, probably only carrying a minimal amount of water and food and obviously has no friggen clue what he's doing. This is very bad for mtbing. Keep them on motorized trails and let dirtbikers/quad riders deal with that trash. I'm all for people enjoying the pleasures of ripping single track but it should never be an instant gratification without any work put into it.

Yes, let people exercise their right to adventure! Hell let's just allow quads and dirtbikes on mtb trails! America is twisted in a lot of ways but this decision makes complete sense. You're acting like people who choose to use e-bikes are like a different culture or demographic. It has nothing to do with judging someone, it has everything to do with keeping motorized vehicles off non-motorized trails. Go ride a multi-use mtb trail that allows motorized vehicles then come complaining about treating some lazy fatass fairly. It's pretty simple actually and there are plenty of trails for motorized vehicles. I'm sorry but your view of this decision is completely off base and misinformed.

Tight interview, I had no idea they had to use pallets to build up the landing, haha. The Godfrey's are all insane. cannot wait to see what else they bring to MTBing.

You can tell who are the ignorant ones... Yah you're right (not really though) but those guys trained and have hit this length jump and others identical to it their whole lives and have a perfect in-run for perfect speed and they have the form and equipment that allows them to travel a bit further than what Maddo jumped... on his dirtbike... never hitting a jump like this before... absolutely pinning it with no coaching or other people's experiences to rely on... traveling that far using pure speed and nothing else. Your point is idiotic and no you're not cool by being "that guy" who acts like he's not impressed by something that is clearly very, very impressive.

For the most part, enjoyed this. Nothing spectacular in here except for the people who built these trails. Isaac should be thanking them. He has a very enjoyable style of riding. 8/10 would watch him rip another trail system a new one.

eh.... barspins might be tech but I find them so fucking boring. Instead of throwing down steezy and big stuff, "backflip double barspin... 360 double barspin..." then again DJ contests have never been appealing to me because it seems like its been stagnant for so long. The course looked like fun though. Anyone hit the oddly placed loop? I thought it was going to be an open loop also.

that was sick. the editing was a bit cheesy but that's based on me really wishing this was unedited, raw clips with no music. the trail and riding were that good that nothing else was necessary. that looked like so much fun. please whoever you are, put up a completely unedited version. i love you long time.

Damn, I was expecting so much more from that but it was entertaining... mainly hearing that whirring and not the classic sound of a 2 or 4 stroke. So strange... science is weird.

He's in because this is an FMB stop and he's one of the top dudes who could take the overall. This is his first time riding a full on DH bike, of course he's out of his element but he still kills it harder and goes bigger than most who have been doing it their whole life. In actuality, he's an insanely talented bike rider and only seems to receive hate because he used to focus only on BMX... which is exactly what Darren Berrecloth used to do before borrowing a bike for the '02 rampage, substituting for an injured friend.
