How is watching a POV rider any different than watching something like a 50:01 edit? Don’t like it don’t watch it. I don’t see how your paying for either to ride their bike except by giving them a view on their video.

Please do not dumb down northstar or the CES even more. Getting crazy or pushing the limits is exactly how you progress the sport and people's ability. That's why we have enduro now. Our bikes are so good and better than the DH bikes of 10 years ago that a lot of these tracks were designed for.

Top riders aren't stoked to race places like toro. China Peak and Northstar keep things interesting because they are so challenging(and completely rideable at slower speeds). Downieville and Ashland are arguably more dangerous than Northstar because the buff trails and lack of true rocks allow skilled riders reach insanely high speeds (and in a race encourage pushing the limits even further). Would you rather wad at 15-20 mph on rocks or 35-40+ on buff trails?

Pedaling isn't bad, but racing up a one minute fireroad shaft in the middle of a stage doesn't belong in enduro. It's about pedaling flat sections or very short kickers. EWS should be worried about the upcoming race at Northstar with talk like this from admin at CES.

Public land = often 'illegal' trails
Public broadcasting of 'illegal' trails often leads to 'no more' trails

Or you don't want people riding your trails, bringing them into the public eye, being shut down/destroyed...

NO.

It is, by definition, a different "sport" when there is any sort of alternate power source. So please start a new site called VitalEbike and post these turds there.

This is a potentially damaging trend for trail access.
