Qualifying was actually seeding. All invited riders were qualified for finals. Everyone except Sam took a seeding run, since he didn't he was seeded last and ran first in finals.

Just scoped the course today, to say its steep would be a HUGE understatement. its insane, and awesome. Some of the rocks/corners/lines are gnarly. Definitely stoked for the event and practice tomorrow.

That is awesome! Definitely a proper step for trail bikes. I am running a 34 front with 11x34 10 sp on my Covert, wouldn't mind going to a 30 front and still having that tough gear for fast decents.

It won't die if we keep talking about it... lol I prefer slalom, but 4x is easier for people to watch and understand. Courses could be better, but I would argue that they are

The park is huge, the picture shows just a taste. What is not shown is the singletracks, cyclocross stuff, two pumptracks, dirt jumps, wallrides... Its an amazing park, I cant wait for it to open!

Good read, he explains it like it is, and where his company stands with regards to the industry, the team riders, and the company's goals. The letter/blog could have used some proofreading and editing prior to posting though
Reply to Tires for Bootleg Canyon 12/30/2010 7:29 PM
Agreed with Turman, its all about the casing at Bootleg. The terrain destroys tire tread and sidewalls, so don't try and run a single ply or anything light, run durable for sure. I have run Minions and High Rollers with luck, Intense 2 and 4 plys with ... more »

Minion EXO DHF, its a 2.5 but pretty darn light and tons of traction. Minion 2.35 DHF or High Roller 2.35 rear. They dont roll like XC tires, but the trails I ride them on require some meat for the descents, so I just deal with the added heft of these ... more »

Solar! Certainly lots of potential problems, but could work pretty sweet

Next option, a small chip that can be put into the bb shell or something that connects to your smart phone and has a GPS piece, it tracks location, mileage, altitude... lead you directly to your stolen bike? Crap, I should have patented that prior to ... more »

I kinda figured something like that, they dont mess around with protecting bikes, so thats awesome. I musta missed that when I skimmed the article. This is sick
Reply to Kryptonite / Bikerevolution introduce bike theft recovery system 11/10/2010 1:17 PM
Definitely a cool option, but what prevents the thief from just pulling the stickers? That said, I am in support of this, stop bike thieves!

I would second the recommendation to cut a slot into the head and use a flat screw driver. You will of course have to but a new bolt
Reply to Dirt Lips 9/30/2010 7:21 AM
That depends upon the dirt composition you are using, some dirt wont stick when extremely wet, but once it dries out a bit it'll stick like crazy, other dirt can only be slightly wet . Keep your shovel extremely clean, and when you pack, perhaps try ... more »

I heard it on good authority that Hill will be rocking a 14 speed internally geared fixed coged rear suspension only next year and is getting $5,000,000 per race. Brought to you by Fischer Price and Tonka Toys for 2011 through 2012
