Let's talk cyclocross

Winnipeg NATS

Who's going?

That venue will be rad for cross. Like a combo of Vanier park, Granville Island and Burnaby foreshore. Winnipeg is a fun city, liver there for 2 years.

I am going to SSCXWC in Louisville that weekend:rocker:

I'm just going to come right out and say it: Naughty Hildegard [HTML_REMOVED] Sartori this year.

Sartori's good, but just a tad too delicate / reserved. Hilde is brilliant, so dank and rich.

Anyone else get as carried away with the last Cantillon shipment? It's getting tough to get all of a sudden, so I contributed to the problem by ensuring I have my supply for the year. This time last year I could go buy another bottle in a few weeks if I wanted, but those days appear to be over.

argh, I know!!! I come back home in a week and missed wet hop releases and the 'LOON's. Well back to work with only shit beer at the end of the day. Ugh, and this is the best choice.

Beer

Found a good selection of Belgian and Belgian style beers at the Portland Costco.

I had the Rodenbach Grand Cru last night, and I hope I can find some here at home. It was very good, similar to, but not as strongly sour as, Driftwood's BOP series.

That Brother Thelonius rocks my socks,mmm mmm good. Brewery Creek usually has Rodenbach, not as cheap as Costco

Official Coast Gravity Park thread

Would like to bring my son here for a day trip at some point I am just concerned there won't be enough terrain for him to ride? He is ridding the flowy and tech blues in the WBP. Anyone brought there grom here yet?

The Green is really mellow, and blue is not harder than any blues in WBP. If he can cruise Crank It Up and Ninja Cougar, he could probably cruise the Red trails at CGP. IMO, The reds are similar to a smooth short Ninja Cougar, except Doggers has one small Gap, with a ride around.

Beer

Goose Island Sofie and Matilda has hit BC in a big way. It seems too good to be true, but it's true: there are TONS at the local government stores. Well over 2000 bottles of each in BC, and they are CHEAP: $7.95 for a 750mL.

This is the best beer that has ever hit GLS shelves.

Bourbon County is next on the shelves which will be good. The fact that it is owned by Inbev-AB, doesn't change it for me.

What is Best Tire Store in the Lower Mainland?

Thanks for all the help.
I will looking in to Discount Tire for my truck in the fall. I was looking for all weather that have the snowflake mountian. I found some at a fair price, not super cheap
Costco seemed to be really expensive on the items i was looking at 25/tire for same sizes and model.

I am in the need of new skins for my car, and pretty much hate tire shopping. It seems so insular, like you have to have a bro deal before you get a deal.

Where do you all go for tires?
Vancouver/Richmond/Ladner preferred

TdF

I love watching Nibali. He was the rider for the TdF this year. He was on form at Trentino-Adratico, and prepared for the tour by learning the stages. A pro. I loved watching him in the Wiggans TdF 2012. He attacked stages uphill down hill even though he knew the train would bring him back.

Froome is not the same type of rider at all. Super focused, super strong, and disciplined. He is excellent in a strong team but doesn't race enough in bad weather. I think that was his down fall this year. Wiggans crashed last year in the Giro, in bad weather. Excellent rider, but lacking that .5-.75% difference to the guys that are better in the weather and greasy roads. All in all, we are talking less than 1% difference from these guys. All so fast and work so hard.

Contador had a shitty crash, but was down on time after the cobbles. His team was strong, as is evidenced by the stage wins and KOM jersey after he was out.

I love watching the all of them, but like any spectator, I have my favorites.

signature trail (non WBP)

^^^^

in 2-4 hours you can do above plus Flank to Pura Vida and Danimal.
Those are trails that typify the riding in Whistler.

A bit less than 2 hours can get you Yummy numby to ForePlay?(comfortably numb).

I love Rockwork Orange and Korova, to me that is Whistler. Rocks, flow tech lines, views.

Why the hate, 'skid?

I can't help it if I look so damn good that people always take photos for posterity. :)
