Shit, I failed. Totally meant to put Minnaar on my stupid list too. #Fail

He should be on my silly little list for sure. But he's not the greatest of all time... Now, best DHer to have a beer with of all time, he's certainly winning that one. Or "best ambassador of all time"... but greatest? Not by any objective measuring ... more »

Hill is good but reminds me of Tiger Woods in a number of ways. Was so dominate for awhile but can't seem to find his way back uptop. The greatest ever... (in no order) Graves: Dominated 4x like nobody ever did. Has won XC races. Killer enduro racer ... more »

PS, I remember looking for the Billy Jean Lake Arbor vid from 15 years ago too... (eek, been that long!?) That's a gem too.

Besides problems noted above, the tires are too light (casing) to be considered for teh gnar of Rampage...

Apparently its more important to be clear about practice only a day before

Also, poor form to CC everyone on an email (not BCC). Anyone want Nico's email address?

Good morning everybody! I hope you are having a great time here in Crested Butte. First on behalf of the entire management I want to apologize for the miscommunication yesterday regarding practices. Now that we are less than a day to start the race its ... more »

Nice. I really think borrowing inspiration from elsewhere can help the sport. Great post.

You bring up a lot of good points here. That said... 1) Its the internet and its bike racing. No more beautiful two things have come together to encourage whining in the history of modern society

2) The pros that are well funded have more than ... more »

I think you fully underestimate how many "pros" have day jobs and this may effect. There are guys who very well can put a top 20 result in at this race who have been put at disadvantage. It may not be the majority but again, I see no excuse for the schedule ... more »

If true what a shit show. The rider's email just explicitly said the stages won't even be revealed until tomorrow PM and that tomorrow's practice is for "3 and 4 ONLY". Sounds like every schedule is a "moving target".

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/29/2015 8:54 AM

Speculating here but changes appear to be because of BME. In fact, in an email I received, I was told... Why would you ask Chris Ball the same question you asked me, when this is our event (BME) and that's what the practice rules are? Not sure it even

My thoughts too. Glad I pulled out. (there is a joke there but I'll refrain)

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/29/2015 7:11 AM

As I suspected that one day of practice now becomes huge!! While maybe not "easy" it's very reasonable to have practiced day one in one day and day two in another. This leaves the bike park and one small stage. Showing up on Tuesday and practicing the ... more »

New thread Shawn Neer 7/28/2015 9:10 PM

How is Shawn not getting more attention? He won a ProGRT on a trail bike, was top 5 at Snowshoe and besides the fact everyone knows he is dirty on a 20 there is zero information out there on this dude. I want to see what he does at a WC with a proper ... more »

I agree in that it won't have a big impact for the top dudes. It'll matter for the riff raff pros though - and yes, your ams.
