Agreed. The effect was annoying, irritating, frustrating, tasteless, and just plain dumb. IMESHO.

This was almost really cool. That effect is super lame. I want to see Richie ride and maybe learn a thing or two. This is an editor making his mark in the worst way possible. HINT: When you have one of the best riders in the world less=more.

Does every Kanye need to turn everything into dick measuring contest? Be careful, Kanye- some people ride tracks that are steep from start to finish, not just the lower parts

Sven and erik are both right. It takes a tremendous amount of time, effort, organization, love, and MONEY to stage an EWS event. Most promoters or--even more so--most venues are solely focused on the bottom line as defined by "How much profit can we make off of this event?" The answer, absent something like Crankwork for EWS Whistler, stops the decision making process in its tracks. And it's critically important to keep in mind that Crankworx has all the organization, time, money, love, and whatnot--but it has taken how many years of grinding work and success to get to where it is today?

But hell, what do I know? I'm just an attorney who builds and remodels houses for a living...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say too many N American organisers or venues are looking solely for a ROI - there is no passion spirit or risk takers and maybe more importantly little help from host towns and tourist agencies that kick in around the rest of the year. While yes, Aspen...more

I used to ride in the same bmx club as her, she was already a legend but still very young. Rode a couple of time near her village and on her training track that was the steepest thing i've ever seen. Having ACC as your local hero makes you proud. An now we both are 20 years older,...more

I think this could be a good marketing thing for IMBA Trail Solutions. Once the enduro racers come to a really crappy 'sustainable' corner, and cut it, it'll have to be rebuilt, correct?

Will IMBA be on hand to 'fix' courses that have...more

Mr. Turman, any word on expected availability for the Minion SS? They've been teasing that sucker for too long!

Three cheers for Schwalbe, even if their tires are short-lived and steeply-priced!

Rims any wider than the ridiculously narrow Cmax Enduros were? Those of us who've rolled a tire off a rim in a corner need to know!
