What're you some white supremacist who thinks other nations/peoples can't make decisions in their own best interest?

lol

Your train wreck of thought is absolutely comical at times.  

But to answer your question all one has to do is take a look around to see that most nations can’t act in their own best interests  these days no matter their ethnicity. If you look back in history some cultures were capable of it, Coast Salish people come to mind as one. However, once a culture has become poisoned by technological advancement and a surplus of goods things tend to fall to shit. 

All it takes is one person who likes the idea of abundance to throw a wrench into the works.

If America (Western) control is reduced in an area, China will quickly fill that void.  

If teh amerikkkans abandoned violence and economic coercion and instead instituted a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Neighbor_policy maybe there wouldn't be a void to fill?

You can't seriously believe that?

Shady Acres to DBV is one of the best laps in the park.

Maybe I'll come up this summer for a few spins in the park with you one morning and you can show me the goods.

I had 130+ days in the bike park last year and didn't blow anything.  Combined with 2bliss, there is zero reason to deal with that...

Yeah I've heard the stories of you crushing it all day on Del Boca Vista, that's impressive.

ps - check your esarc meter, it may be off slightly.

Re: Squamish just ain't what it used to be

As for Burke I think Triple Crown or elevator would be fair examples. You are pretty accurate about some of the old and out of the way lines are still pretty close to their original line. Sawblade comes to mind. As far as the Woodlot goes, take your pick. I’ve ridden the woodlot for over twenty years and I can’t think of one trail there that hasn’t evolved in some way. But don’t leave me hanging, which trail?

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the lower Burke trails, I'd much rather ride the west side like Bean et all. I haven't been out to Woodlot in a while but agree there's been lots of progression/evolution out there, but I also think some of that has to do with the terrain and the way the original lines were cut. Can't really say that for the older Burke stuff. As for which Woodlot trail, maybe I'll tell you if we ever get out for a ride some day ;) My thoughts there tho are of course influenced by a number of things, including riding friends at the time, what I was riding, etc.

Now that said , most trails on Burke are good examples of trails that over time have evolved, mostly for the better. Trails, like most things in nature evolve.

Most trails? I guess it depends which part of the mtn you ride, but it seems to me that few of the original trails have evolved that much and that the "evolution" has mostly occurred on newerish trails. Plenty of older lines all over have been modified a bit to become newer school, but imo it's kind of hard to turn classic old school into new school unless you significantly change the line. Expresso comes to mind as that type of significant change. As to when/how that evolution has happened, there's one trail at the Woodlot that kind of stands out, to me anyways, as sort of the dividing line between old and new school here in the lower mainland.

Trump is going to lose badly and the GOP will lose control of both houses. The GOP and Trump will pull every trick in the book to pass shit and leave the house on fire (more than it is already) for the Dems and try to make their legislation permanent. Followers of the Trump cult will get violent in an attempt to "take the country back" while he whines that his loss was due to voter fraud. Buckle up the kids.

tinfoil

Trump is actually a Dem and his plan all along has been to destroy the GOP so the Dems can get full control of everything and run things as they see fit.

What were you right about with the ebola thread? First you speculated that it may not be ebola, then it was a bunch of other stuff, then it was that that trillions would be infected.

I'm still waiting for the math on that.

Maybe he was including the lizard people from the 4th dimension?

Totally agree, and ffs, can we please stick to the trail instead of braiding it a new straightline?  Especially if you're a pro rider flogging E-bikes on classic shore trails.

Case in point, how long do you think till the straightlines over/through the edge of the trail are fully worn in at 0.11,  0.12, 1.45, 1.47, 4.02, and 5.31?   I'll give him 2.49, that's a good debating point on where the logical trail should have been, but the log is rotted out at the end, therefore a sharp right instead.  it's the first two that really get my goat.

Yes, Gully, I'm calling you out to showcase clean riding.  You might be jumping over some sections, but the jongs behind you are just following your tracks over the moss and ferns.  First youtube comment - "That was insane! So fast. So many lines down boogieman that I didn't even realize you could do."

Thanks though, for your 7th & UOC laps, they were clean.  I'm sure Pete appreciates it!

Wait, I thought skinnies were no longer cool anymore? He seemed to really like the skinny section at the 1 min mark.
