Added reply in a thread Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/27/2015 9:37 AM

considering how tight times are in the Top 20 anymore, knowing 1 or 2 lines over someone else could mean something in results. but as we're seeming to agree, it won't matter much when DC wins : ) i heard he's racing on a home-made bamboo 29+ rigid singlespeed ... more »

if i was a competitor, my biggest issues (like the 2 above who have decided not to race now) would be the late addition of another practice day and the altering of the course layout/liaisons/climbs. i think the reason showing up early to a venue has ... more »

the last-minute addition of wednesday's unofficial practice is a bummer. getting helmet cam footage alone for an extra day of study is a huge advantage to anyone competing, whether they ride all the trails or not. ibeaver, plenty of pro riders with legitimate ... more »

Added a new video Vital RAW - Lee Jackson Whacks Whistler + Norco Aurum Bike Check 7/23/2015 10:27 AM
C138x104

Lee Jackson gaps and slaps the trails of Whistler's lower mountain.

Here's what AJ Barlas noted about making the video with Lee.

"We attempted to get a good mix of burly gap lines and fast sections, with the one move that Lee was most worried, and psyched about being the gap on the slab of Schleyer (ender); a move that apparently only Nick Geddes has successfully hit. It's serious, and we were stoked to get it smooth. Lee was jittery the rest of the night. He did it the original day filming, but cased and wasn't happy with the clip, so he stewed over it for 3 days between the original shoot and the redo.

"A couple of interesting stats: Lee destroyed one wheel, blew a tire off the rim, flatted front and rear on separate occasions, blew pieces of his chain guide apart, taking bed rock with it all in 2 days time shooting."

Lee's Norco Aurum featured in the video

i would label you "average" at best when it comes to complaining. not "good". if you think that tire is abused you need to skid harder.
