    Protective gear for DH?

    Those suits look great. Saw one on gumtree recently for $100 but missed it. I've recently started using the VPD 2.0 elbow and knees and have found them to do the job well. Not the best for pedalling as the rubber grip is so damn good it grabs my hairy legs haha

    Travel insurance

    I'll also be going to Whistler (in a few weeks) , will be using SCTI and my bike is under home and contents which is covered for overseas damage (excludes racing but I won't be doing any of that). Made two claims in the past with SCTI and they have been great.
