Stop the shuttlers!

That road hasn't always been eroded and nasty to shuttle. Was common place to shuttle that before the climbing trail was built.

2016 - Fiver Series

Wreckers or Checkers, the Fiver World Champs will be October 22nd. One day for glory to be crowned the Fiver World Champ. Get to wear the coveted stripes for a whole year.

It will be three stages on Fromme. Expect it to be a bit longer than our usual length of stages but not an all day affair.

Grouse for sale

Let's cross our fingers that there is no change to the permission that is granted for the trails on Fromme on Grouse land under new ownership.

Vuelta 2016

Good call on Chavez.

Great team effort by OBE to bring back that 3rd podium spot.

If you watched the Backstage Pass is was interesting to see them use Yates to mess with Tinkoff by doing small attacks to hamper their pace and aid in the crack.

Vuelta 2016

So, apparently the TT is NOT one of Quintana's strengths …

Bit of a re-org in the top 10 today.

Nario knew he'd drop time in the TT, if you've been following he's said all along he needed 3+ minutes going into the TT to have a fight for the overall win.

It's going to be fireworks tomorrow. A bunch of climbs with a big mountain top finish. Hopefully Chaves can break Contador on the climb and gain back his 3rd spot.

MEC = WTF?!?!?!

Just looked at some hard goods (ski/mountaineering gear) - their online prices are almost 30% more than what's currently available locally here in Whistler.

Are you comparing the same season product? Knowing a few things about how the industry is priced this doesn't actually make sense. I'd like to see your actual comparison of the same season hard good items prices 30% HIGHER at MEC than in an independent shop.

WBP 16

There is no winning. Guess we'll just go fix it again.

Maybe dig bigger wheel swallowing holes in the straightlines? Make them suck so bad people actually divert back to the trail?

Pedalling from Lonsdale to No Quarter

Cross #1 on Lonsdale then east on 25th. There is a path along the highway that connects the dead end of 25th to Tempe Glen. Hang a right on Tempe Knoll then a quick left on 26th Crescent. Cross through the back of the school and across 29th under the power lines and follow the trail up Princess Park.

That will be the least extra climbing to get to Fromme.

Why has Pink Starfish been decommissioned?

Honestly breaks my heart that trails like that aren't around anymore :(

Have you been to Bowen Island? Go find Dan's stash of high impossible skinnys.

Carbon Rim Lifespan

the adhesive in the ews sticker totally dissolved the epoxy.

this is why i stick with aluminum. actually, the price is the real reason, but yeah.

Man those EWS stickers do use some crazy adhesive, I've still got stickers on wheels from the first EWS in Whistler 4 years ago.

The Decline of Vancouver.

Wasn't this not supposed to be the case? She put a 10% deposit on a townhouse in July.

There is the option to resell the property.

The tax is due when it's transferred into her name, if she re-sells the property she won't need to pay it. So there is a third option not listed in the article.

2016 - Fiver Series

Thanks for another awesome year Brian! Last night was an a** kicker but was super fun.

Thanks Andrew.

You and Ilana also deserve recognition on reviving the Toonies a couple years before I took over.

I am looking forward to some personal riding now….oh and organizing the Fiver World Champs for sometime in October. :)

2017 Enduro

They held off just to spite you.

Maybe they are going for a weekend of "leaked" "spy" shots of the new rigs being ridden at Crankworx. Then release early next week.
