It’s funny, the collective mountain bike community has been pretty pumped on the inception of the Enduro World Series (or “EWS”), myself included. On one hand, at the inaugural round, there was certainly a lot of excitement. On the other, the EWS is a series comprised of events that have been running for quite some time.
Congratulations to Jason Boeckmann on winning Teva ‘Proof of Life’ contest. Boeckmann will be receiving an autographed Jeff Lenosky Giant STP frameset, a Teva Prize Pack, and $1000 in cash. Title: Chicks dig scars Description: after 6 years of ridin’ it hard, my bike finally paid me back with 15 stitches and a manly scar.
At least once a year, I really, truly get my ass kicked on the bike. This year, I was lucky that The Knock couldn’t find me until August 25. It usually happens in the first race of the year, but since I haven’t raced a lick so far in 2012, I lasted until late summer [...]

Jonathon Hayward's entry in the Deep Summer Photo Challenge didn't make the podium, but Seb Kemp couldn't give a damn--it's still a project he's proud as hell to have been a part of. Besides, it was the only entry with blow-up sex dolls in it.
This isn't another huck-fest video. It's an exacting look at what it takes to win against a field of the world's best riders.
It looks like Chris Akrigg is back to full form after badly breaking his leg a while back. If any of us were to go near this ‘Mill’, with or without bikes, we’d end up needing one hell of a tetanus shot. Not Akrigg though, his description for this video was simply: “Well that was [...]
