Thanks Scott! Fun, and sometimes a little frustrating, haha. But worth it when you finally nail it.

My favorite "hit" from Rampage this time around. Really though his line was impressive... man that's huge.

I dunno if I'd ride it. If it's just flat trail w/o much tech or fun lines, probably not. I can deal with exposure, but wouldn't ride a trail solely for that.
What does EWS, BME, or the other successful Enduro races gain by UCI involvement? They all seemed to go off pretty well last season, they all got great press, lots of photos and created quite the buzz, all while the UCI ignored it.
Pro points standings is a good point, but what if there is no UCI Enduro standings, because there are no UCI enduro races? Will EWS standings be the new "standard"? Could that be a good thing? Enduro seems to have a solid driving force behind it, with the chance of defining its path from within, could that be a good thing too?
How do the other Enduro promoters feel about it - that would be a good feature here.

You missed "Steez" and its variations, but damn that was funny. Nice work!

Don't know the guy, or maybe I know him just as well as anybody else here - who doesn't really know him. From what I've seen, he's talented, has guts, passion and was invited to Rampage. I don't think anyone else commenting here was invited?
His resignation is more a reflection on everyone else, rather than him. I think it took more courage to make the wise decision. Yes, too bad he came all that way and backed out. Too bad for who though?
Maybe people just assume how "easy" Rampage and big mountain is. My opinion is that its a HUGE mental game, almost as big or bigger than the physical game, and I think many people take it for granted. Look how many skipped the large portion of the sender, for instance. We're spoon fed video edits of glory and success, but we don't experience the complexity of emotions and decision making that goes on with these riders.
I think the prevalence of Rampage the last couple of years may not be such a good thing.

If you're a decent rider, you can any of the three sizes about anywhere you like. Cool edit though

Wow, that was really bad. Guess I'm old or just don't get it. Should have the "I only ride park" guy do something like this...

Similar? Sure, cannot argue that.
But I don't see that as a detriment or bad thing.
For instance, the Bottlerocket has many "cousins", as does (okay - DID) the Kona Stinky, The Santa Cruz Single pivots, and now, just about every multi-link bike out there.

Price is for Frameset only - NOT complete bike.
Deity got some nice ad space in there

Or, as Fred Glo, creator of the Tribe 10,000 race says: "The goal was always to have about 90% down and 10% up."
Or as Ash Smith, the guy behind Trans-Provence said: "What that works out to is a format where you race over a series of timed special stages that are mostly downhill. Those stages will be less full-on than downhill racing and could well involve some going uphill. Depending on where you are in the world, getting to the top can mean pedalling, a chairlift or a combination of both."

funny, I've been reading some comments on mtbr abut how there's not enough climbing and too much dh in American enduros (BME being the main "offender"). Personally, I dig the BME courses...
