Re: BCpov

This one was a bit of a tire destroyer:

Re: Should 29ers have their own DH class?

I don't think so. The sport definitely isn't big enough for that even if it was a good idea. On top of that people would just watch the faster class and the best racers would race in the top class.

Basically I think it's a shame that none of the teams take the sport seriously enough to try to develop a technical advantage. Santa Cruz themselves only started developing the new v10 in october of 2016 after Greg figured it would be faster. One might say that tires didn't exist or the fork might not exist to support a dh 29er. But I would say the teams should be pushing the manufacturers to develop these parts.

Sure there might be a risk of the sport becoming a little bit too much like Formula 1, where the team with the most money and thus the best car wins. But realistically I don't see that happening anytime soon in DH. Generally I think the best rider still wins.

The other teams only have themselves to blame for not developing 29ers.

Re: WBP 17

This is kinda interesting.. trail day to dig out the wbp trails? Free labour on paid trails? Hopefully everybody that shows up get's a free pass.

Re: Vedder Trails - comparable to what on the Shore?

Anything fast with berms. Which is basically non existent here. John Deer is probably the closest. Maybe upper dales, bobsled.

Re: BCpov

Every video is getting faster, but I'm guessing about 4-5 hours including the social media cuts. Decided to go for it in Janurary, and spent a bunch of the time in the interim figuring out how to get the quality as high as possible. A lot of that work is in the videos now.

Just got back from the Penticton enduro, I'll probably put those vids up this week!

Re: Fivers

Great time out there. I heard the 280 number, but then someone quickly corrected to over 300.

I'll definitely bring a jacket next time. Got a pretty good chill going near the end there, plus I really cooled down waiting in line for the 2nd stage.

Got an overall time of 12:03, shoulda pre rode floppy! I rarely ride that one!
