Kirt, it's all water under the bridge now and I don't mean to harm you in any way. I believe you did, you do and you will still be doing a heap of positive stuff towards the mountain biking community. You crushed our hearts a little bit that night, but we weren't even stuck in that event, we were still stoked on your riding, your ambassadorship and your work generally in the years to come. Sorry I bought this up for transparency's sake, but the essence of the message was one of support and that I trust you coming around and finding proper support for what you are doing. I mean it with all my heart! smile

So here's a bunch of love and good luck wishes straight outta Transylvania! :D

Attention bike marketers: I do not watch burm slashing, edge of the world, drony, triple can-can bar hump videos. They are all the same; boring. But if Kurt is in a video, I watch. I watch because his videos are not "let's make a video like the other guy" videos, I watch because Kurt brings the every-rider flavor of fun and riding to videos. He makes me want to get together with my hooligan buds and ride! Get this man a ride!

His AllRide tour used to be incredible. He was on Santa Cruz bikes and ran a bike demo across the country and tied it into all sorts of street rides, group rides, filming sessions, etc. He and Lindsey went from town to town ACROSS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. He is the hardest working ambassador there is. Imagine those demo trucks you see laced with goodies being driven by a man who pulls up, dials everybody in, then hits the trail with them, meets them at the skatepark later...you name it. I talked him into hitting up Windrock and then riding the Urban Sprawl street event in Asheville the next day. He was wiped out from travel, working on bikes, taking tours and filming his piece for NewWorldDisorder 8 at Windrock...and still made time to hang out with the kids at Urban Sprawl. I think he's had the greatest niche of any rider out there. Bryceland rides like him..but could never outwork him. http://www.bikemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/AllRide_USE.jpg

Kirt is a real OG and godfather of today's mtbing. Maximum respect to him. People like him and Lenosky belong in the MTB hall of fame. But unfortunately that's life in the biz today. The progression curve is so steep that people who were Legends six or seven years ago, are getting schooled by 15-25 yr old kids that have no sponsors and just riding for fun.
For better or worse- you can blame the internet and YouTube. Back in the day, people thought bunnyhop tailwhips were impossible on mtb, but now seems pretty common. The "monkey see-monkey do effect" is powerful.....(where it seems impossible until you get on YouTube and dozens of other people doing it). It reminds me of a many years ago when I was trying to learn 360 bunnyhops, and they seemed impossible---then I was on YouTube and was blown away that some fat 16-17 year old kid in Arkansas was doing them easily on a Walmart bike. I credit that fat kid for giving me the intense motivation to learn that trick. It's bike Darwinism........just ask Blackmarket bikes and Atomlab.

He's definitely a rider that still inspires me. Some brand should at least flow him some frames. Robot bike co how about you?

This is why I will always keep coming back to Vital, true reporting on the real world of two wheels bicycles that go downhill fast.
