Thanks folks ... still remember meeting Spomer at a NORBA so many years ago and knowing instantly I’d met someone who got this whole MTB thing. Years of Littermag then Vital later and that still holds true! Cheers for the good times on this journey of bikes!

quote from the article above - If Sambo swapped to clipless pedals, the world would definitely implode from the inside out, so maybe this wheel size diameter increase will only cause a local tornado somewhere.

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...more

Venue looks amazing! EWS still killing it with new/crazy tracks. Def looks like it has Sam Hill written all over it. Sneaky inside lines, sketchy off-cambers, plenty of roots and open loose sections.

for the record, the audio is there behind the intro : ) i tried putting the audio track in the slideshow only but it was too loud. i'll mess w/ it and see if i can get it to where everything is balanced out for the next one.

I miss having the classic vital MTB song in the background of the slideshow, now that the interviews and the slideshow are de-coupled... it's just not the same

Great idea for doing post race interviews!! It shows the racers in wind down mode and you get better perspective of the over all race. Keep this up all year please.

@sspomer it's not as bad on material as it looks. However tubes are not something we would advise ? Best regards.

I really enjoy these videos. This video could just as easily be titled "how to make the same old ride less boring" or "how not to be a pussy." I love doing all of those things when I ride the same old trail for the thousandth time. Good tips all. Thanks team Vital + Art.

Due to the nature of photographing Enduro, you can really only chase the top men. If you hang around to wait for the women, then you would probably only get two goes at each and miss the finish. I would have loved to get more women's stuff. The very little I did get gets...more
