Dave Camp blew by me like I was standing still today. Get some, buddy! Agreed that Day 2 (Stages 3/4) will crush some riders. BIG, steep climbs. Plus long, physical race runs. Ouch. All the hike-a-bike sections are what did me in during practice. Pretty ... more »
Today's "unofficial" practice was indeed a free for all. Some riders/teams went so far as to find creative back 4x4 roads to get them nearer to the tops of trails, and others crossed streams in their vehicles and motored up what will be pedal powered ... more »

Added reply in a thread Shawn Neer 7/29/2015 2:10 AM
Shawn will be at MSA on a proper DH bike (hint hint). He'll crush it. One of the most dialed riders I've ever met, and only getting better with age and experience.
Like it or not, electronically controlled suspension is soon to be upon us in a bigger way. Dan Atherton is currently testing a prototype 'Live Valve' system from FOX, and will race the setup at this weekend's Enduro World Series stop in Crested Butte, Colorado.

This video is sure to make you want to ride. Cody Kelley struts his stuff and lets his hair flow while burning in local Salt Lake City trails after the spring thaw. We're pretty sure 'Smooth' is his middle name. Shot in April, 2015.

Added a new video Dust Apocalypse! 7/28/2015 10:36 AM
One of the craziest dust conditions ever gave the Polygon UR Team the opportunity to film some insane dirt explosions. Fabien 'CousCous' Cousinié was like a kid in a sand pit, shameless and riding as hard as he could until the roost covered him head to toe.

Former Downhill World Cup winner Marc Beaumont thinks Cross Country riders are slow on descents, and he proved that they could indeed go faster in a previous video. But when Marc has to go up the hill before heading down, will XC legend Nino Schurter prove him wrong? Both riders took a quick lap around the Lenzerheide World Cup XC track to find out who is faster where.

Valid point. Here's the elevation/distance/time breakdown for Crested Butte:
One could certainly make an educated guess, though it'd be difficult. Is that against the rules though? As far as I can tell, it's only illegal to practice stages ... more »
