Whistler Bike Park Opening Day 2020 - June 30, 2020, 2:06 p.m.

Thanks Tim. Maybe I will make a trip this year. My main beef with the pricing is that if COVID disappeared tomorrow and all was back to normal I'd bet that the prices would remain the same.

Do you know if the sampler pass is still available? It was a staple in my family with younger kids and wife wanting to ride but not for the whole day.

CushCore Bead Dropper Tire Lever - April 28, 2020, 6:15 a.m.

Yeah loved my milk levers until I left them in Europe after a bike vacation.

The new Pedro's are great too, but snapped one recently after 6 years of use. Hope the quality is still up there.

COVID-19 Closes Seymour and Cypress Access - March 22, 2020, 10:04 a.m.

Yup. More and more people are going to be squeezed into a smaller and smaller area.

If only the boarders had been closed way back in Jan we wouldn't be in this mess. New Zealand is the only country that seems to have got it right.

The dude doing the Toonie drop was Andrew aka Trail Slayer. He was on a SC Nomad. He's a sick rider so no surprise to see him drop this.

I don't think we will see someone on a high tower doing it soon.

Bring back Freeride!!!

On Board With Richie Rude in Squamish - Aug. 27, 2019, 7:34 a.m.


When did this all happen? Perhaps he 'borrowed' one of these riders water bottles :)

Squamish Gnar with Remy Metaillier - Aug. 26, 2019, 9:35 a.m.

If its harder than Chossy then wow! That trail is a serious head scratching workout.

Yeah Tommy!!! Ripping as usual. I really need to get out there soon.

A Day on Tannus Armour Inserts - April 25, 2019, 10:59 a.m.

Awesome. I've been waiting for a good review of this system. Thanks Cam.

Take my money Tannus.

2019 Yeti SB 150 - First Impressions* - Nov. 29, 2018, 8:06 a.m.

I just don't get the lust for Yeti's. Over engineered throughout their lifetime, remember the crap sliding beam thing on their DH bike?

Sure they ride great, but so do much simpler designed frames.

Dentist bikes ;)

Giro Riddance Mid Shoe - Reviewed - Nov. 28, 2018, 12:57 p.m.

Nothing but five tens. They used to be good and last at least 2 seasons. My last pair started to fall apart just 2 months in. I demand better for the bucks they cost.

Giro Riddance Mid Shoe - Reviewed - Nov. 28, 2018, 11:19 a.m.

Dam. I'm after new shoes but sick of Five Tens falling apart after 3 months of riding. I was hoping these were the ticket. They are even in my colour :)

For a heavier rider do you think they would make more sense?

Jordie Lunn - Rough AF 3 Teaser - Nov. 22, 2018, 8:38 a.m.

Yeah its live, but if you head over to cypress you'll see BP ripping them out a dozen at a time and no one seems to be up in arms about that!

If the judges don't want to judge then give the vote to the people. With technology as it is these days you could easily score each run as it happens.

Why I Love and Hate Red Bull Rampage* - Nov. 9, 2018, 8:53 a.m.

I agree, limit time on building or whatever is needed to reduce trick scoring.

But I would say there have been plenty of Slopestyle riders that have come and had a go at Rampage.? Even this year there was a good number. I think a good slopestyle rider can easily get their head around riding down the hill as long as it pretty well groomed.

Oh and Brendan finished his line way before anyone else and was riding. Everyone else was still buffing the shit out of the mountain.

Why I Love and Hate Red Bull Rampage* - Nov. 8, 2018, 9:30 a.m.

This year wasn't the first year that they removed the Red Bull Evel Knievil style woodwork. Last year benefited from it too :)

Personally I'd love to see more of a return back to its roots (the last two years have to some extent).

I think tricks should be scored much lower than line choice and speed / style. Some of the riders lines are basically manicured all the way down the mountain, like a much steeper Crankworx course. While its impressive, there's already well established events that scores for these.

Rampage should be about death defying chutes, hucks and gaps - Finding features on the hill that make impressive stunts (like Brendans rock) and riding terrain that should be impossible to all but the most skilled riders. 

Keeps the tricks to the mega booter events and hopefully this would level the scoring field for the majority of the riders.
