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.

sick course but is this a joke? that was the lamest heat I've ever seen. If I was an official, I would have DQed them both. They ran half the friggen course. They did more running than people in a cyclocross race.

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.

Didn't know it was the first one ever... The one he does in his newest flick is insane... like a cartoon using that fence.
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.

that was awesome. Storch's seemed way more bike parkish in terms of how manicured everything was but looked really cool. Gully's... holy crap those ridges are knife-edge. That was a perfect balance of both and that backie was nutty. Rampage is love, Rampage is life.

Sooo... how do you adjust tire pressure? Well at least its a great idea for rental bikes and commuters.

Huh... looking at the canyon/finger gap, I thought it'd be impossibly high risk to go for it. Well, aint surprised they're sending it but still the consequences are so fucking severe. they're all insane. (i think this was the big one that Bas/Deane is going for that people were causally joking about but coulda easily been looking at Fairclough's). its hard to tell when its all so fucking big.

yeew! gonna be so sick. I wish I coulda stayed down there longer to help out. Soo a bit of info on the course... the canyon gap is 72ft. so virtually the same size as last venue's but with a shorter, mellow takeoff which seems perfect for tricks. The top section is very gnarly and many more riders this year are dropping off into the face rather than taking ridge lines. The downside to this venue is its much steeper and seems overall a smaller area so at least up top, there aren't many different line choices. However, Bourdo and a few others towards lookers left are building some insane lines and there are options for double/triple and even a quad stage cliff drop if someone decides to go that way. However some of the lines formed like Norb's/Howey's, I never would have seen as an option so they're coming up with stuff. You've got that stepdown which a few riders are very stoked on with the re-built landing, there's a massive moto-style hip towards the bottom (right-hand sided hip I guess you'll call it?) and I'm not sure if anyone will step to this but there is a death gap possibly/maybe where you jump from one finger/ridge to an adjacent one... its gonna be bonkers this year and much more like a FWT stop than a mtb event for a number of the riders, haha.
How many DH tracks have you been on that are made for 10 people to race down at the same time? It doesn't leave many options... and as we've learned from criticisms of almost every DH stop, helmet cams can be very deceiving. I'm waiting until the edits come out and what kind of racing action happens before making any judgments.
