The interview is LONG, but great. Luckily I was driving from Durango to Evergreen and it made the time pass fast. Loved the reason for moving to Eagle and was blown away to hear about the head injury. Heal fast, and keep building rad trails for all of us to enjoy. No 20, 30, 40 foot jumps for me though.

Fantastic interview. Yes, SS is right, we are interested in hearing what MT has to say.

Much respect to Mr Thompson as an athlete, professional, family man, and friend.

Great commentary on the 90's and early 00's. Wanna ride the chairlift and some tough DH terrain? You gotta race, and guess what, you get 3 days of practice and a lift ticket for $50! There was no lift service except at the races. Shuttle trails were scarce, scorned upon, and quietly guarded. Downhillers in CO did what they had to do to get their practice and testing, and the bikes broke constantly. GOOD TIMES!

I will be attempting to implement the "singletrack sidewalks" concept here in Durango. It's a fantastic idea and one that should be universal.

Time for a field trip to Eagle to smash out some Enduro laps! Come on man, I know you like to pedal!

So, you guys don't make it too hard to figure out the trails you are talking about there with the rogue shuttle trails. How do you guys feel about the current thought process of trying to legitimize those trails?

I started digging there in 2003. Neko and Sean have been the utmost respectful to the trail crews that started and carried the trails up until they turned it into a bike park with a real vision beyond local building trails for themselves.

I walked out of the woods at dark last night with these guys. They are really working hard and long hours to make Windrock something way more than it has been.

I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It is defiantly stiffer and much more stable at speed then the old one. It made me want to buy this bike again. The only thing that is holding me back is the fact that they should have made the bike just a bit longer in reach and gave it stronger wheels.

What would be rad to see is a long travel 29er comparison. How about that vital?

Patagonia has been a Gold Partner of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) for years. Their sponsorship helps SBTS build and maintain some of the trails that are on the Vital Bucketlist articles. Downieville, Lakes Basin, Mills Peak & a new 5000 foot descent Quincy trail. Patagonia puts their dollars into trails we ride. I can buy into that.
