I enjoyed the article as well. I too, am a bit older. I watched Semenuk win last year, from the slope on the left of the course. I thought it was great. I have no ff'ing idea wtf slopestyle has to do with mountain biking. But…I cannot play tennis, hate it when I am talked into trying but love to watch it. Sometimes life is not about making sense. A life attempting to rationalize everything will leave you behind. Whistler is a vacation land for me, it's not real. I have a full blown dh rig that gets ridden as often as I do. Not too much. And that kid who hit you with the band-aid, pulled some hair off you and hit your junk. That kid is living….he is hucking off the proverbial drop of life. Just making Sh#t up. Much love to all.

Sometimes I think I can ride a bike. I mean I can pedal and get down some trails. I have pedal'ed in Squamish, Whistler, I live on Vancouver Island I have hit nearly every riding area. But, I cannot ride a bike like that. Hats off. I enjoyed that video.
Offering complaints instead of solutions is what this world has become in some ways. I love a trail when I can feel what the builder was doing or designing through a section of forest. For all those that offer their time to trail days, thank you.
In the end, ride many bikes and find some way to buy the bike your heart longs for. The bike that after you ride it and return to the garage or wall you want to keep riding. The bike that works for you. And buy your bike from a bike shop full of people you enjoy. Just buy your bike and ride it like you stole it.
That crash is about the event not the wheel set. Just a dangerous event. You can see there is no room for error on the last jump as well. They have to suck up the last jump even more. Marketing genius. Hate to say it's a fail.
Complaining about a riding area is a first world problem we should all be so lucky to have. There are distinct riding areas available to all of us that offer so much, not just riding. Shore riding seems to be a style of trail. I am older and like the high speed flow but I still love the tech xc. I do like the use of "janky."
I took a week long gravity camp in Whistler. Learning how to be faster and more efficient in the trail helps so much. Things are not as easy as just riding a bike. And canuck477 has it……ride with a purpose.
It would seem that you are correct Thaaad. That enduro is racing. And using "enduro" is an marketing ploy to up the average cost of every mountain bike on the planet. I am unhappy. Darwin needs to work harder. As for the video. Squamish is an special place. And those are great riders.
I am simply amazed. I enjoyed the video and hearing the riding and the rider's reacting to an cleaned stunt. My hat is off, I bow to the sir's and ladies off the one wheeled adventure cycle.
Would I try that…I spoke to my bike and it said, "no."
I walked past him in the near the line up in Whistler. I would say he is slightly taller than me by one or two inches and I am 6'2″.
I don't mean to be a hater. Or suggest anything untoward with bike manufacturers. Maybe I am pointing out the obvious but is that not an Rocky Mountain Altitude in Scott's Clothing. Just sayin'
