What an amazing winter we have been having in the Sea to Sky ! the Olympics were the greatest ever and the Snow in Whistler just keeps on coming. Winter is starting to slow down for me and time to start thinking bikes and shredding Dirt instead of Pow. Here is a little photo recap of my winter cross training.

I rode the White Rock skate park the other day and Paul Clark was taking some photos. If you ever get the chance to ride White Rock, I suggest you do. Its an old bowl style skate park with steep lips and lots of lines…. plus it has lights.

The winter of 2009/2010 has been a busy one. After hosting BIKE magazines 2010 Bible of Bike Tests for the month of October we had a bit of down time, paid of some bills and then set to with a new website.
The New site is live at www.bearbackbiking.com so go check it out and see what we offer in the way of Whistler Mountain Biking holidays.
Raceface remain on board for 2010 and share our vision in being the best in the industry at what we do. So, keep your eyes peeled for our Scott USA/Fox guiding fleet kitted out with the West Coasts best bars, stems and cranks!

Comfort and protection rolled up in one sleek package. The Race Face Flank knee pads with 3do are a brand new item from Race Face for 2010. These pads are a welcome alternative for those riders looking for a little more than just a soft shell knee.
The Flank pads are a soft shell knee pad that incorporate the d3o material for impact protection and have an extra extension down the shin for what Race Face calls “pedal bite” protection.
Compared to other knee pads on the market that employ d3o for impact protection these pads are a bit of an anomaly. The Flank pads don’t just cover the knees, they also offer protection for your shins that extends approximately 6 inches down the shins and offer a fair bit of protection from pedal strikes and other errant objects your lower legs sometimes encounter when riding, all in a light weight package. read full review

A new trail is opening up on Galbraith mountain in Bellingham that I am so excited to have in my backyard. All the local diggers teamed up with an excavator for 3 weeks to make this happen. Big thanks to everyone who helped so we can now have an A-line type trail on our local mountain.
So with all the local riding and shuttling this winter I jumped at the first chance to go ride somewhere different. This last weekend kicked off one of the first races of the season, The Double Down Hoe Down at Beacon Hill in Spokane. While I don’t consider myself a racer, as I usually like a more laid back approach to riding my bike, I decided it would still be fun to go ride some new terrain. (continue reading…)

Here’s a quick video I did for Banshee Bikes showing their VF4B (virtual floating four bar) suspension system in action. It’s meant to demonstrate the suspension performance in a variety of conditions, hence the climbing, descending, jumping, and just plain romping the rough stuff! Shot with a GoPro Hero HD and Manfrotto magic arm. Legend MKII footage thanks to Lorien at Sooke Mtn Cycle.
And a few screengrabs:
