I once met an old dude who called himself Frenchy while camping in the parking lot at a Park City National. He was in his sixties and did every event on the same bike. I can't remember if it was a hardtail. He was a chef and taught me a recipe for garlic and parsley stuffed trout that i...more

As ridiculous as this seems, I bet it's a lot of fun. I'd love to see the outtakes from this video! Guaranteed that there's steep learning curve involved!

What I really want to know is, do all the award winners really get a SHREDDY trophy? Or is that the same rock in every video? Great picks on the Shreddys, by the way.

Is the Trans-Provence a real race? I get the impression that it's just a PR event. Am I the only one that thinks it's sort of strange? 56 riders? You have to register in December and you only get in if you're selected? I wonder if they have plans to grow? What am I missing? Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's tons of fun...

What these guys are doing is so cool. This is film is going to expose a whole new demographic of people to what the sport is really about. I can't wait to see the new film Anthill!

Stoked about Race Face? Not at all. We have pals at RF, and a number of us at the Easton office are big fans of RF cranks.

I like that video treatment... kind of dreamy. I didn't learn a lot about the brakes, though.
