good to see some of these in the wild. For a while I though that DVO was just a T-shirt and Hat company.....

Hero dirt, a DH course with some serious flow and one of the most unique Dual tracks in history, The 2001 UCI World Cup in Durango, CO, had it all. Minnaar, Gracia, Barel, Rockwell, Hannah, Rennie and so many more roosting for the ages. Man or Astroman graciously providing permission to the tunes.

First, NOT going to complain about word count. Nice to read some thought out, articulate expression instead of a 250 word caption. Thank you.

As for wants - better bikes for less money?

How about maybe just the same bikes for less money? Bikes are pretty fancy nowadays, and besides wheel size...more

Fox Head (clothes, helmets etc) changes ownership to Altamont Capital and Pete Fox (son of founder, Geoff Fox). Pete stepped down as CEO in February. At one point Vans (VFC) was looking into purchasing Fox, but backed out. Check more details here - http://shop-eat-surf.com/2014/12/altamont-capital-pete-fox-acquire-fox-head/ ... more »

Added a new video ONE LAP - The Della in Lillooet, B.C. with Forrest Riesco and Matt Beer 12/1/2014 3:59 PM
C138x104

Follow Matt Beer and Forrest Riesco down the wide-open and flat-out track known as the “Della” in Lillooet, B.C. It’s not very often you find a shuttle-able downhill track averaging 10 minutes a run, non-stop. Once you get to the lower, more high-speed part of the trail your hands start to burn, but it's too good to stop and by the time your mid-drift in the next corner you’ve forgotten how tired you were a few seconds ago. There is a camping area at the top of the trail with an amazing view overlooking the creek. It is definitely a place worth visiting. - Trail length is 7.3km (all but 320m on singletrack) - Total vertical drop is 1164m (3818 feet) - The trail has two distinct portions, both of which can be shuttled. The top portion (not in video) starts in sub-alpine terrain at 1512m (4,960 ft.). The bottom portion (as seen in the video) starts at 1270m (4,166 ft.) and descends to 348m. (1,141 ft.) #yew
