The 2001 racing season is here. If you plan to race
in sanctioned events in Alberta this season, you will likely want
to obtain a membership from the Alberta Bicycle Association (ABA).
The membership is also a Canadian Cycling Association (CCA) membership,
which allows you to race anywhere in Canada. For more information,
check the ABA website
or contact the ABA by e-mail

If you would like to race as part of a club, the ABA
website contains information on cycling clubs in various part of
the province. For those not lucky enough to live in Alberta, the
ABA website also contains link to other provincial cycling associations.

For race location and date information, check the
ABA 2001
for races in Alberta, the CCA
2001 Calendar
for national races in Canada and the UCI
2001 Calendar
for internationally sanctioned races.

Riding with Krispy and Lance Canfield Riding with Krispy and Lance Canfield
I was invited by Kent Setsma of Dirtfarm Magazine
to go film these Utah locals as they tore it up at Bartlett's Wash.
I figured we'd show up, get a shot or two at the Mushroom drop,
and then maybe get something else. Well, I was wrong...I was blown
away at the skill and size of the riding that went down. Bartlett's
Wash is a Freerider's dream with the biggest skatepark-type features...[Read

RazorRock Stiffy Lever review RazorRock Stiffy Lever review
When I first tried Hayes hydraulics, I was amazed.
I couldn't help thinking it doesn't get any better than this! Great
power, excellent modulation, and easy to maintain. But the levers...
I found myself tired of having to bend the damn things back after
every crash. RazorRock to the rescue.... [read

Mountain Cycle rider from Philly Mountain Cycle rider from Philly
Mountain Cycle has been making quality monocoque aluminum
frames since the early nineties. They are the self proclaimed founders
of the "Freeride Revolution" with one of the most original, if not
"THE" most original designs on the market, the "San Andreas". Often
imitated but never duplicated, this design has not changed since
it's conception which tells you something about the effort and attention
to detail that went into this design. They've since introduced a
few new frame designs like the "Shockwave" and the all new "Tremor".
They also make some really nice BMX, XC and Road frames that are
quite impressive and have had great success over the years. Check
them out at
and see for yourself.

Have you seen it? Have you seen it?
Here are some interesting products and companies
that should have the spotlight.
Check out the goods over in the Slovak Republic at RB
. They have some nice hubs, rock rings, boosters, etc.
Also over in the Czech Republic, Racebike
has some nice looking Freeride and DH rigs. I wonder how these babies
would hold up out in the west. Speaking of the west, check out some
steering dampers from Hopey.
Has someone actually used one of these? What's it like?

Your comment/discussion
on these products.
You know of some other goods that should be in the "Have you
seen it?" post next week. Email

Summer is only 1 hour away! Summer is only 1 hour away!
Are you bored of the concrete? Sick of the snow? Well
load up the trucks and head out north east. That's just what we
did last Sunday. Radek, Danny, Stephanie, Bernard and I headed out
of the snow and cold towards Drumheller.
An hour and a half later, we hit sunshine in T-Rex country.

Like  to talk bikes? Like to talk bikes?
We have a small group of (mostly European) riders
who hang out on IRC when we're not out riding. We talk bikes and
rides, argue, all of the stuff you can do on the forum, but in real
time. It'd be great to get more people in from all over the world,
so please join us. Get yourself an irc
client here
and hook up to the server,
join #mtb and you're in! I hope to see some of you in there,
but keep in mind there are pretty big timezone differences

Update: That server probably doesn't work. Try
ports 6667 and 6666, those should be better.

Unique, once in a life time opportunity to mix
your love of mountain biking with your knowledge of computers (in
particular web page design, search engine placement, and database
development) your spirit of adventure and desire for exotic travel.

Big Ride Big Ride
We had our own little bike show out here in Finland.
Some cool going ons including this sweet ride. Its the FinnPeak
. See more
pics of this bike
. This one belongs to the National DH champ
Visa. Notice the big ass rear shock. This is an Ohlins
snowmobile shock
giving this rig 8 inches of plush travel. If
you ever had your rear shocks blow on your bike, you will be jealous,
cause this baby does not have those problems. More companies should
be designing their bikes with MX and Snowmobile hardware as it is
more durable and won't have you sitting on your ass while your itty
bitty bicycle shock is in the shop for the 8th time that season.

Thanks to National Event Management, sponsors, exhibitors,
COP, course builders, timekeepers, spotter, and of course all the
riders and spectators for making this event such a HUGE success.
The course was great, riding spectacular and the atmosphere and

We'll put up a full overview (text, photo, video) in the next few
days. In the meantime here are the Big
Air, Trials, and Rockies Challenge results
and check out the
photo section regularly as pictures from the event are already pouring

Also at the Pinkbike booth we had an entry for
