Think about getting back into racing all the time after tasting the pointy end a time or two at the highest level. Injury stopped me cold a few years back and since recovering I've dabbled in a few local races, one being the Aspen EWS posting competitive ... more »

Reply to Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 6:14 AM

Multiple times. 29er's were great on the majority of trail I rode, however I missed a longer travel 27.5 when riding technical/tight trail, so I ultimately landed back on my 160mm Banshee Rune which for me provided the best all around ride for me and ... more »

Reply to Time to Say Goodbye to USAC? 7/16/2016 9:54 PM

I recommend that everyone bitching and moaning never attend a USAC race again. Also, a little late, but if you really wanted to demonstrate your dismay a mass urination would have been a hilarious form of resistance! Maybe one can be organized for the ... more »

This forum topic might be my favorite one ever! I'm absolutely obsessed with with pump tracks, backyard projects and bike park development. I've built two on a piece of property I live on, but do not own. While I dig up evidence of those, I'll post this ... more »

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/26/2015 9:55 PM

My $0.02 The idea of Enduro racing was what got me excited, show up, ride a trail once or twice and race. I know that it isn't illegal to ride public trails or to buy a lift ticket and ride behind a fast local, but it really pisses me off to see so many ... more »

Reply to We'll Do It Ourselves! 12/1/2010 9:41 AM

I would love to test pilot after my accident last weekend in Telluride. I'm thanking about creating some Kevlar reinforced anti rock goring underwear! I wish my injury to be experienced by no one.
