Instead of posting stuff up in the Shout Box, I figured I'd start a thread and post links to interesting bike news, videos, pictures, etc as I come across them.

Very cool video of Cedric Gracia chasing Brian Lopes down A-Line in Whistler -


Another video of them playing around on the dual slalom course there -


I wish I had 1/10th of the skill that these guys have.

I'm hoping to hit Whistler as well in the next year or two...at the very least I'll do a weeklong trip out to
California to hit a couple of the bike parks there.

Here's the website for the bike park mentioned above - http://www.idahovelopark.org/

I think when it is all done it will have something for just about any kind of bike rider - bmx, jumps, xc, velodrome, etc.

I'd love to see more work into gearbox systems that:
1.  Don't cost a fortune
2.  Aren't excessivley heavy
3.  Can handle the abuse that we put them through while mountain biking

If I had some extra cash, I'd build something up very similar to this.  The color is stunning.

I saw him and Aaron chase at a contest in Asheville a few years back. those guys are fun to watch! There was a local who jumped a hand rail down a really steep double set of stairs. Aaron and Jeff did not want anything to do with it! :o :o 8)

Aaron Chase is fun to watch as well, but I just prefer Lenosky's style a little better.
