You are actually free to have fun in NZ and ride how you want. Each lift pass comes with a guy ironically named Paver. He follows you around with a shovel. Keeps you happy and him employed.

yeah, I guess the pandemic is over...

wait, it's not.
as much as I want to get back to normal, watch downhill (or any) racing, and ride with others...it's kinda dumb to let your guard down this close to the what looks like the end.

Agreed. Tripping right before the finish line...

That’s because many of the brands you mentioned above are still on strict lock downs at this moment.

Exactly. I'm talking about private land, where the only access to the trails is through the private shuttle service. Private shuttles on public trails are different and much more abundant in the US.

Thank you for the detailed reply. The pacific city stuff is going to be public- although I could see a shuttle service operating in the trail system. If there is a bike park going in it's news to me. Not exactly what I'm examining but sort of close. ... more »

SVR Bikepark in Wallace, ID is going to open at some point. Hopefully that won't be the only one in the PNW in a couple of years

I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are for US bike park prices. How much would you feel comfortable paying for a day pass (10-5) at a shuttle-serviced park in the US? Let's say its 800 ft of elevation loss, 10 trails, and the quality is up there with ... more »

While I agree with your sentiments on UCI giving close to zero f*cks about DH, it can be argued that without Redbull, UCI could very well reduce DH even further or remove it from overall broadcasts. With all it's faults, Redbull has done a lot for our sport many other potential...more

It's crazy out here. Keith Darner said "I'll never host another DH race again" because costs are so high to run a race and racer turnout is so low. Driving across the country multiple times one year to earn the right to enter a WC race the next year is stupid.
