Just a girl, her bike and her go-pro having some fun. Enjoy!
Fun little edit from Chris Akrigg, “the original idea behind this edit was to go for a spin without getting off for them bloody gates, cliffs, stiles and things, or as i like to call it a triple XC ride”. Beautiful scenery as well, and a number of interesting gate designs and old fences he is hopping over.
Looks like one hell of a race, THIS section looks especially terrifying with riders sliding out of control and slamming into each other…
Check out the beautifully shot video of Steve Peat riding into the wilds of Scotland on the new Santa Cruz Solo. I’m loving the track by Joe Gideon & The Shark as well. Where have all the good times gone you ask? This video leaves me feeling like they are surely ahead of us.
Matt Messenger and his now infamous 3 race series starts on MLK day, then on 2/2/13 & 2/24/13. Run down is same as always. The TT starts at noon with warm up before that. He’s going to have help from his Seattle bike polo buddies that will be in attendance to make things go fast and smooth. Chili will be served as well as brauts and Beer after the race, so bring one of your old water bottles for a container and be conscious. They are going to have a honey bucket (read: shitter) as well, due to the parks having winterized the restrooms. $15 bucks for all of the above. Course will be just under 6 miles. Registration starts at 10. Details about the series at the 1st race will be explained. You can also just race one and not all three. Please spread the word to friends for a fun time at one our awesome local cross country trails we are privileged to have. Yes it is rain of shine. Maybe snow!!
You can ride any bike, but from what I hear, a Mountain bike is the preferred bicycle on these trails.
The premiere of If She Can Do It is in Seattle
this NEXT Thursday (11/15) at St. Andrews Bar and Grill.

I’m not going to post the video from Kurt Sorge’s epic run at the Redbull Rampage, but here is a kid that is stoked on life. Get a kid on a bike.
Though I haven’t been too pumped on my Contour camera-not even really having used it yet, This movie looks pretty rad.
Thomson stems and seatposts have long been an upgrade that walks the line between bling and performance. There is no doubt that they are well made and respected for durability. Though there are far more expensive bits out there, they aren’t cheap either. I’m of the opinion that if you are looking for that balance of looks and quality- you’ll find it in Thomson.
They recently announced that you’ll be able to finish out that cockpit with Thomson bars- for road, cross or MTB. Available this fall- I’m looking forward to seeing them at Interbike, and hope to pick some up for CX season.
