This tire was also explicitly shown and mentioned in the old Pinkbike link from last year. It's definitely the Hillbilly and for some reason Keene has it mounted backwards of its original intended direction (maybe he knows something we don't).

The "golden era" is always referred to with respect to wealth and popularity of mtb gravity racing in the US, but certainly not with respect to the technology. What were some of the biggest headaches or compromises you and your racers faced with the ... more »

You bet. Do keep in mind that by having multiple riders on each bike we have a system of checks and balances in place. The same was true last year and the year before.

Great background as always, but there's one major detail I'd love to see: can we get a disclosure for any current sponsors that the test riders have (especially bike, suspension, components, and/or tires if any)? I'd like to think that they're all giving unbiased reviews regardless, but last year there was at least one rider who was sponsored by one of the bike companies that was being tested. It would be nice to have that acknowledged before reading all the reviews.

Neither Gwin nor Ratboy ride for RockShox. ...but they could always have a tiebreaker of participating in the Boxxer world champs.

These features are a lot of fun. The links and audio in the graphics are great bonus.

Gwin to win and hoping for Troy to make a statement with this race. Also very surprised to see no mention of Tracy...

Refreshing change of pace. Wouldn't mind more xc slideshows. There's always references to the xc races in the dh slideshows that tease more than anything else. If it's got two wheels and knobby tires, Vital slideshows can keep it compelling.

Horrible news about a great cyclist. Spent a lot of time watching his clips and reading about him in MBUK when I was growing up. Hoping the best for his recovery.

Added a comment about video Northstar Trail Crew Chronicles - Gypsy Part 1 6/24/2013 10:07 PM

Was trying to figure out where that long left hand wooden berm was that she was riding... until i realized they flipped that shot horizontally.

IMO, the changes to Gypsy have been more for the worst. They admit in the film that they're intentionally slowing down certain sections. What they don't discuss is the removal of any sense of natural terrain and a complete replacement with wooden berms, connected by flat trail, interrupted by awkward, up-hill jumps.

It's not done yet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there's some semblance of rough natural trail on the lower half. Otherwise Boondocks will be the only DH left on the Zephyr side.

k.shiz, I'm disappointed in you. "The Bouncing Chezk" is Libor, not Petr...

Luckily they're both equally fun to watch ride. Thanks for the vid.

Ugh, that was painful. Kenny has such good style on his trials bike, but apparently it doesn't quite translate into his trail riding. Still plenty of skill, no doubt, but all sorts of awkwardness too.
