The transition from the foam pit to dirt can be a tough one, and Drew Bezanson found that out the hard way. After sustaining a separated shoulder, Drew's window to qualify for Joyride just got a little narrower. On this week’s episode of The Learning Curve, we find Drew Bezanson putting in time at the Joyride 150 bike park warehouse, near Toronto, in Canada. With the mercy of a foam pit, Drew hucks his way to perfection as he prepares for competitive action. “Using he foam pit is key because of how fast I have to learn this stuff. If I was going to do it the old-fashioned way, on a regular jump, we probably wouldn’t be filming right now!” -Drew Bezanson

I realize we're not all mechanics, but inevitably as riders, we all start to tinker around with our bikes and begin acquiring tools. Having personally wrenched in shops for a number of years, I've become very particular about my tools and utilize pretty

It may only be day one, but the FEST Series boys aren't messing around. Check out the goods from the first evening sesh from this year's Loosefest.

The first evening session of Loosefest is in the books, and some craziness already went down. After some adjustments, the line is riding better than ever and most people made it completely through, so the next days are gonna go off.

Admitting you like a 29er can be a hard thing for many of us, but it looks like Bryn "The Berm Slayer" is getting along with wagon wheels just fine.

He was probably late because the line to the porta-potty he was in was longer than expected. You know, since you can't just piss in the woods without getting fined.

I would expect a warning or reprimand from someone at the start hut. If there was a problem, they apparently got over it and let him take his run. Why does the guy at the bottom have to nearly come unglued? You put up good money to race at National Champs and...more

What happens if you enter the start-hut the wrong way at a USAC sanctioned race? Rider Richard Finn Jr found out the hard way with a DQ and some kind words from the race official.

This is how one USAC race official reacted to a rider making a simple mistake this past weekend at National Champs. Apparently Richard Finn Jr, the rider recording his run, was almost late for his start time. With all the riders already lined up, the entrance to the start-hut was blocked so he had to enter from the front, inadvertently crossing the timing beam as he did so. We're still blown away by how the race official confronted the rider... he's a paying customer and a stranger. How is this acceptable?

There's a whole thread about other questionable things right now in our forum.

As Joyride quickly approaches, Drew Bezanson gets acquainted with his big bike at Crankworx Rotorua.  

This week, Drew Bezanson gets a new toy as he unwraps his all new Trek Ticket S slopestyle bike and takes it for a test-drive at his hometown park Joyride 150 in Toronto. He’s quick to realize that there is plenty different about the new setup besides just the size of the wheels…

Even the simplest things like transitioning through jumps takes on a whole new feel on these new set of wheels. Hanging with the big dogs at Crankworx Rotorua, Drew gets his first taste of the contest scene and first ride on the official slopestyle course.

Getting some insight from slopestyle legends Sam Pilgrim, Max Fredriksson, Thomas Genon and Nicholi Rogatkin, Drew begins his quest for the magic number 1150 – the number of points he will need to accumulate to qualify for Red Bull Joyride.

“With BMX I’ve been able to win contests. I want to do the same thing in mountain biking, I want to do it the legit way and qualify it, so at the end of the day no-one can be like ‘Oh, he was just able to ride these contests because he rides for Red Bull.” - Drew Bezanson
