now that's something to wake up to! nothing better than simplicity, creativity and style destroying quintuple rotation variations. (whistler scrambling to create "mogul biking" trail prior to crankworx so everyone can practice their crank-dirt-shaving technique for 2018 Unofficial Mogul Scraper World Champs: )

we covered two seasons of world cup XC a couple years ago and the interest (views) just wasn't there from our audience to make it worth our while. and we've never said XC is not mountain biking.

johan (iceman) said there was a biblical downpour just after qualifying wrapped up, but it's supposed to be dry for race day. early practice may be slippery. i'm with you though, i hope the conditions are consistent for everyone.

we do what we can when we can with the resources we have. zach (our main USDH contributor) is in europe, so he missed the last two Pro GRT rounds. He'll be around for more, so stay tuned.

i think he cased the exit of the dish and the "boner log" after it. the trail was pretty fresh for the season and he said it was tough to keep speed on the DH bike in parts.

i roughed it in over a few months w/ hose water before the winter/rainy season. got lucky and found about 10 yards of free clean dirt delivered on craigslist...lots of wheelbarrow trips to the backyard, but not possible w/o dirt. i think i calculated roughly 1500 shovel scoops of moving it LOL. we had a TON of rain this winter but that helped me pack/burn it in well. now i just water before riding as there's really no rain here until the winter again. it's getting a little haggard now though and some new dirt to fill in some cracks would help. luckily the yard is really shaded, so drying out isn't a huge issue. the toughest part is all the leaves/organic debris i have to keep off the track and out of the dirt...and the groms using it as a self-proclaimed dig site for toy trucks : ) have thought about the 5:1 water/wood glue thing, but i may change it around this winter anyway so no need to make it permanent. i really want to start cementing it and make a skatepark but the mrs. isn't too keen : )

that's why brandon and the super rippers do the heavy reviews : ) i can handle drivetrain performance over time etc, but putting suspension through its paces is not where i excel anymore

so i had 1 day on the bike at big bear w/ it completely stock. i have gx 11-speed on another bike that i've been riding for a while, so i'm familiar w/ that. as for the revelation, i didn't feel like it held me back at big bear. i'm not a super gnar guy, but i played w/ set-up a bit, found what seemd to work best and then didn't really think about the fork. feels like it's sufficient for what i ride and how i ride most of the time. big bear has some serious berms and g-outs and it never felt flexy and i didn't bottom out harshly ever. that was on the stock aluminum roval wheels too. most of that day was generally on buffer trails though (that's just how big bear is). some rocky sections, but nothing sustained for more than a handful of yards.
