why can't Americans race Downhill

The idea of having a base in Whistler is great. The canadian government (or whoever is in charge) could also use the facilities to other sports. I dunno if Whistlers at atlitude significantly but if it athletics and then in the winter the skiers could be based there when racing north america itd be great, there is no reason Canada cant be a top country just look at Sweeden

24" wheels being banned??

Who cares what you ride as long as you ride. 24" are accepted as "proper" bikes in the UK and its common to have no front brake for dirt jumping. This arguement is centralising on bikings image, it's the same as should you wear lyrca for the downhill personally i think those guys look like jays but what ever floats your boat. The reason is trying to sell mountain biking as an extreme sport (which it kinda already is but meh) and get all the TV slots and advertising that skate, snowboarding and surfing get. With big burly bikes going huge it makes it look cool so thats what theyre tryin to tap into.

So it is really mountain biking selling its soul, its as sad and depressing as that. But keep doing what you are its all that we can to keep our sport the way we want it.

why can't Americans race Downhill

When I say Americans I mean people from the America's. The top North American is it the 20's on the UCI standings whats up with that? Britain which is soo much smaller has 3 riders contending for the top 10 and thats similar to Australia and South Africa has a few top riders (ie they're in with a shout at the World Cup and World Champs) and there's a few good European riders (Gar

Giro d'Italia

Back to the MTB start of this thread (cause that all I know about seeing as I cant get the Giro, I need sky TV) but the guy Ryder is being tipped as the next Armstrong. Source is Transworld sport. The best general sport show, channel 4 at 7am on Saturdays for anyone in Britain

So he must be doing something right

The shore?

Ok, in July i'm comming over to Vancover (and Whistler) for a holiday, how far is it to the Shore from downtown and how easy is to do without a car.

Plus riding, how hard is it? I can ride ok but cant jump, bike hire and equipement would also be an issue. I'm over when the Ripper III is on whats that gonna be like.

The other thing i was thinking just tripping over to see the shore would the Grouse 4cross be spectator friendly ie would there be top quality racing or would be a laugh to do but not great to watch?

And finally can you hire cruisers to go round Stanley park cause that looks like a laugh.

Sorge all the way, its cheating with 2, the double can can has it for me

The other votes are cool as well. I think that forward flip should have been the best trick it wasnt there though . :-(

Freeriding at Whistler is totally washed

I'm going home to cry into my big pillow.

I'm quitting riding too.
