    What is similiar between motocross and downhill. Need Advice.

    As far injuires go, i think you will surprised although major injuries or deaths aren't as frequent, downhill has no were wear the numbers of mx. Also my personal opinion (I rode moto's for a few years) you crash alot more in downhill and I think shoulder and wirst injures are more prevalent...

    Downhill/Freeride HD short film with GoPro

    Nice one at 9:30 looks pretty well to flat, there is no need to pedal at that ladder. The downhill track that starts off the left is the best one up there and why didn't you guys hit the switches on the other track its heaps more fun then belting down at that ski jump.

    Just seen this in the thredbo pics. Neil has his website up and running. I think deserves a special mention because of neil's efforts to get photo's of us riders at every round. He came to thredbo even though his son is out injured and hiked up and down the track with a backpack weighing about...

    Where are our pros ?

    I hope all the people who are complaining are tradies because I need a new kitchen, bathroom and can't afford it. Think about it, do you turn up to work for free on your holiday (if you do, you are the sadest person I know) or do you go do what you want??

    Trek session 88 2010, Would a large be too big ?

    had a 2009 in medium and im 5'11, i could have easily rode a large so i wouldnt worry at 5,11 i was at the limit in terms of size and being 15 id say you would grow out of a medium quick so go the large

    Understanding what makes a downhill bike

    If you have only started to get into downhill then from experience i would say to stick with what you have for as long as you can. In this sport you will be surprised how easy to progress at a very quick rate, you say your not doing big drops but in six months you could be and you might be...

    September 5 - XC build day

    Hey guys, ride the track a fair bit and love it, new section is great but is it possible to change or remove the 2 singles as you rejoin the track. I just don't see the point of jumps to flat, at the moment I have to break into as I think they could Almost be doubled (would work sweet as a table...

    Trek Scratch 8 2011 ?

    The scratch wasn't brought in last year and as you say is not on the website for this year so id say it isn't being brought into the country, but from vibe i got from the bike shop is that because trek are coming in direct for 2011 we should be able to get all the range (just might take a bit...

    Santacruz Driver 8

    the bike is built to be a DH/FR bike that can take a shitload of abuse, its designed to be a high use bike with little issues and easy to maintain. The bike rides fine and hasn't slowed me up on the track(although im looking at getting a angled headset to slacken it but i will wait and see how...
