Now this is cool gear. Having worked in outdoor retail, I am a big fan of tech-gadgets. Delorme Sat Comms are a more advanced version of this, and I think the simplicity found in the gotenna is a huge plus. Definitely on my wishlist.

Something to think about: The current MTB long jump is just over 130', with moto assist - so this back flip is wading into that sort of territory, on top of including a flip. Here's a throw-back for a little more context on this sort of record, and what it takes to achieve: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/full-monte-dirt-farm-world-record-weekend-2011.html

This story was the second incident that prompted me to write about this issue. I excluded it only because I didn't want rampant guessing and hyperbole to flame up regarding the outcome of a potentially disastrous clash between riders. I was glad to hear ... more »

Thanks Spomer! Glad it's on-point, and relatable. I am interested as well to hear people's thoughts. Also: WAG: Wives and Girlfriends BAH: Boyfriends and Husbands (HAB is also acceptable)

I am here to address a growing concern of mine, highlighted by some events this weekend at the ESC race at Killington: Where are all the course marshals? In the earlier years of racing, at every single race, from Mt Snow to Mtn Creek, there were marshals ... more »

So savage! A lot of badassery in there! The '03 track was a good one! Cedric beat Rennie in that one IIRC, crossing the line without a saddle.

ERS and Ohlins are on the "I would pay for that list". Leaning Ohlins just for the pedigree, but I really like what ERS is doing as well. Great to see the best in the world of suspension finally stepping solidly into the MTB realm.

Glad someone said it! Those fresh sections of loam down the fall-line looked pretty schweet though.

Walking your bike downhill should be an automatic DQ.

Especially when a photographer rides the same section with a 50lb backpack.
