What is “History”? How far back do you have to go for something to be considered historic? How do you “Make History”?

I was down in the US touring some Colorado Bike Parks last week and while I was enjoying myself immensely, I did suffer some FOMO* as the team cracked the new mid section of A-Line in my absence. I wanted to be there to ride it, but more so I wanted to be trail-side to […]

No Biggie

So. The word is officially out, we are opening early. Each time I say that, read it, or hear it my stomach does a little double cork. The “Gutnastics” are like a smoothie in a blender, mixing two parts excitement with a dash of trepidation, a sprinkle of stoke and a healthy dose of worry. […]
