In addition to saying he 'lost fitness' at the DH races and didn't like how little he got to ride, Martin also mentioned that he felt enduro racing made him a better bike rider. I can see how for some the semi-blind, fully-pinned nature of EWS racing might actually translate into a sharpening of handling skills that could be beneficial in DH. Clearly it works for Martin, and I'd love to see both Sam and Richie have a go at some World Cup DH racing again.

NSMB was the first mountain bike related site I came across at 14 years old. It opened up a whole new world for me to look at as a kid growing up on the east coast of Canada with our limited trails at the time. Although my visits to NSMB slowed for a while, I find their articles increasingly relevant to me as a more mature rider. Keep it up Cam

that was fast. Looked like Fa Sho to lower supreme and some new section just after the wood drop, then the road to world cup.

Why is this the only pro grt coverage of the weekend? Didn't Spomer do an entire podcast series where everyone told him that US downhill races are in dire need of more coverage?

Totally dig the podcast, the super in depth test session reviews, and interviews like this one. Glad Vital is publishing long form content. Vital is really upping their game compared to other mtb media

it's not just racers. i'll give away our future episode queue so you can all see where we're going. Episodes touch on a lot of what you're mentioning. These are already recorded and ready to rip - Stikman (Troy Lee), Bryson Martin Sr. (DVO), Duncan Riffle (SRAM), Jose Gonazalez (Trek R&D). I'm organizing future interviews as well with a variety of MTB personalities. we have such a rad group of people in our scene!

So you're just 2 episodes in but it seems like you're going in a good direction. I'd like to see themes develop as well as the tackling of controversial issues within the industry. Also, I love to hear from pros (it'd be great to hear from women too) but I'd also like to hear from others such as photogs, builders, jr. racers, race organizers, team managers, journalists, etc. I feel like it would really help to keep things interesting and offer insights into so many different aspects of the MTB world.

Mr. P

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!

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame from friends that worked there in hopes budget would come back. I sent out proposals but teams were filled and I was branded. It was really no prob because I have great sponsors like Sram, FOXMTB, Clif Bar, and Camelbak that stepped up and kept me going. I do feel obligated to have a bike sponsor to finish that circle of sharing content and promoting my brands together, so a frame sponsor was needed. This past year Drew from Declinemag had a Canyon laying around so I figure I try something new and kept the shred alive! Season is done and I had fun. No pity for me tho, I've been dreaming for 22years, and will keep dreaming sponsors or not! I love this shit!

Thanks for kind words everyone and thank you Spomer for watching out for Homies!!
