I want to thank the author for the title that doesn't give a hint as to the end. On the edge wondering what kind of ending I was about to watch.
That gap is stupid silly.

I understand EWS is brutal, but it's not when compared to World Cup DH. World Cup DH racers are proof of that. They made the switch to enduro and have dominated Enduro wire to wire. Hill is injured, still on the mend and laying it down in Enduro top ... more »

You're kidding? He's 31 and Minnar is 34, 3 years younger than a guy who has had multiple wins over the past 2 years. Don't mistake injury for age. He's got a kid and it makes you wiser. If he wants to win World Cups again, he will when he is 100% again. ... more »

Yeah, I knew I could do them but we were there in late September during the weekend of Interbike. No pros and the park all to ourselves but no one to follow in to them. Semenuk and #longlivechainsaw showed up on Tuesday, our last day but didn't see them much. Danny Hart was there the whole time but a ghost.

I was intent on doing them our third day there. A French guy and his crew went up, he throws a flat as a pancake whip on the first one in my face, then blows his feet off casing the second and straight airs the third. His buddies all case every single jump and I just said...next time. ( I just hope there is a next time.)

I saw his look. Just thought it was the "mountain biker trying to look bad ass, but in the end is a mountain biker and just silly" look.

Man, I like it. My original Switch blade was still under warranty when the internals delaminated. They couldn't warranty it at the time because they were sold out. Wonder if they'd finally honor it? I guy can dream can't he?

May your mini-bike driving spirit forever patrol the pits grinning ear to ear. Heart on his sleeve at all times. God rest your merry soul brother. You were what made the pits at Nationals a fantastic place to be.

@RichardFinnjr I'm not perfect. Stated (I'm long winded so you may have missed it), but I've been in your spot and almost missed a race run at a National and watched guys travel cross country and miss their start and get NO run.

Let's get real honest. How long before your run did you PHYSICALLY ARRIVE within 50 yards of the Start house? When did you check in with the spotter who stands outside the start house lining riders up in order? The spotter at a National usually has the riders IN RACE ORDER 10-20 riders deep.
If it's 10 riders, 30 second intervals, you still had 5 minutes if you're where you're supposed to be. Be honest.

(d) Each rider shall report to the starter at least THREE minutes before their scheduled starting time and shall start at the scheduled time. A rider starting early shall receive a time penalty, as determined by the Chief Referee. If a rider appears later than the appointed starting time, the start will be allowed only if it does not interfere with the riders starting on schedule. If it does interfere, the rider may be further delayed. In case of a late start, the appointed start time shall be used in computing the results unless the rider has been granted a new start time as provided elsewhere in these race regulations or in the technical guide for the event. The rider’s bicycle must be stationary at the moment of the start."

So we can hug it out? I don't do fights any more. Kids, job, ceramic tooth...stuff like that. Be happy to ride with anybody fast that likes to talk shit while we pedal.
