Patience/Consistency Pay Off for Irmiger and JHK
(June 29-30, 2013) Crested Butte, Colo—With no Forest Service permits being granted for a back country stage, the Big Mountain Enduro crew made up for it by using the best trails at the Evolution Bike Park to challenge racers with a bit of everything for the second stop of the five race series.
By American standards, the Inca Avalanche is a bit of a cluster. Initially a stop on the Mega Avalanche circuit back in 2009, it's now run by a local ex-pat who has a style that's about as loose as it gets, which definitely reflects on the entirety of the event.
Kenny Smith does things on a mountain bike that no one else does. He finds possibilities in places where no one else even looks. Bigger, steeper, faster—that’s his style.
Salsa Cycles Teams with Dave Weagle on Split Pivot Suspension Platform
I should’ve expected it. He was Dave Weagle, after all, a mechanical engineer who wanted to work for Formula 1. (Because he didn’t want to move to the U.K. straight out of school, however, he chose to design and engineer robotic vehicles for the Department of Defense.) On one of his first mountain bike rides, he thought the bike could perform better, and he started to think about bicycle suspension. He loves data, numbers, trajectories and forces and the physics that play into how a vehicle propels.

Yakima introduces their new and improved Holdup hitch bike rack with integrated locks, adjustability and a beer opener. Why did we ever use roof racks?
27.5 inch wheels, 125mm of travel, 68 deg head angle. Santa Cruz got it right.
With enduro-fluenza spreading like wild fire, I got the opportunity to check out the 2014 enduro-bred suspension from FOX at the opener of the Oregon Enduro Series in Hood River, Oregon. Accompanied by moto all-star Jeremy McGrath, a slew of Fox’s finest engineers, and top American enduro racer Lars n’ Bars Sternberg, we set out on the trails to get our fill of the amazing terrain. Although the days were socked in and gloomy, it made for an unreal mud shredfest! To top it all off, I got to put the new 2014 product to work against the best Pro enduro guys in the country. After leaving Oregon, I have managed to put the new suspension to the test in the dry Colorado high country. Smashing it through rigorous 30plus minute descents and strenuous hour-long climbs. Post yin and yang conditions, here is the lowdown on what Fox has in store for trail riding and enduro racing in 2014.
