Inspiring Trail Day From Up North


This video is great- shows a couple legendary North Shore builders as they buff out a trail that obviously needs help. The results look impressive. Gotta admit, I'm kinda excited to get to work myself. Motivation comes in strange forms.

Rider Profile Video of Spencer Burback

I like hardworking, self promoting guys. Since Spencer dug deep, trained and won the recent Scotty Graham Memorial DH this recent weekend I decided after watching his recently posted video on Pinkbike was worthy to share. It shows some sweet Oregon dirt.

Meet Spencer Burback. (Wonder when Shane McKenzie is gonna come out with a banger?)

Nick Simcik In Oregon

On his way home from Whistler BC and the Crankworks MTB festival Transition Pro Nick Simcik stopped here in Hood River for a couple days and created this amazing video through the eyes of young Shelby Smith.

MTBrs VS The Roadies!

This coming weekend is when MTBrs and Road Racers collide in a test of who can ride the most 'laps' in a set time period. Originally billed to have two separate tracks at different locations The Hood River Double Cross always seems to be thwarted by Mt Hood area forest fires, so the HR County Fairgrounds is now no longer a venue. Both days will be held at the HRV HS and the course there is very challenging with flowy single track to short climbs across grassy fields over barriers as you cross asphalt sections with ease. Just pray it doesn't rain and mother nature cooperates.

Sat has a Kiddie Cross which is FREE starting at 12:30 and parents can run beside assisting those who need the support. Watch this if your curious about racing your toddler.

Stolen Bike Alert!!

Source: Shane Blem/Dakine

Hey Everyone, just wanted to throw out a quick note.  Sorry to bug everyone at work.  Anyway, my bike was stolen this morning from the top of the stairs.  Left it there at 8a.m. and went back to get it at 11a.m. and it was gone.  It was hidden in the bushes up there, which is where I usually leave it.  It was not locked.  I’m too trusting I guess.  Anyway, there’s a description below.  It’s a pretty obvious Norco bike with the bright orange bars.  I’m sure most of you have seen me riding it for years.  Let me know if anyone locates it.

Couple notes, it has a brand new set of Kenda Kranium tires on it and the headset has a hole for the break cable to run through it generally.  I’ve removed the cable and zip tied it to my fork, so that would be a pretty obvious mark for the bike.
