I got rid of my downhill bike about a year ago. Now mostly enduro and a lot of freeride and xc. I still ride the steep and rough stuff a decent amount, but I do it on the trail bike or enduro bike.

Reply to Members-only track concept - Portland, OR area 5/24/2019 8:12 PM

That is a cool idea, I definitely have struggled living in the pnw getting excited about track days. In Utah, you show up and ride the tracks until you get tired. Here, you've got split practices with a bunch of classes, so you don't get much time on ... more »

Reply to Hill is ready for the outdoors so he says 4/29/2019 7:57 PM

I wonder how many of you posting in this thread calling Hill a lazy POS are in the top 20 in the WORLD at what you do. I'd guess zero.

I'm actually more a tomac fan. Even though I defended Webb on here during his Yamaha years, I don't actually root for him. But I don't think he should be penalized for that.

I just rode my mountain bike. Wasn't fun.

They say no to you offering up your YZ? They sound entitled. No way I'd share.

Reply to How much do you ride? 2/14/2019 8:02 AM

When I was living in Utah, I was riding 3-4 times a week. It was just very accessable. Now living in Oregon, I ride maybe twice a month in the summer, once or twice a winter. I do ride mtb 2-3 times a week and road bike twice a week. I have hundreds ... more »

Thanks, I stand corrected.

Reply to Ralph’s Deal With Lopes 2/2/2019 10:14 PM

I don't confirm, but strongly believe it's pronounced like Lopez, based on my knowledge of the Portuguese language, which I learned when I was living in Brazil for a couple years. Lopes isn't a common name down there, at least where I was in São Paulo, ... more »

Reply to San Diego SX - Night Show Bench Racing 2/2/2019 7:18 PM

Having lived in Brazil for a few years and learning Portuguese, I'm pretty sure Ralph and Ricky are mispronouncing Enzo Lopes' name. It's pronounced pretty much like the Spanish name Lopez. How do they not get this info beforehand? It's like when one ... more »

Reply to What's up with JH46? 1/30/2019 9:25 PM

Some of you guys act as if he is some welfare collecting POS with zero drive to accomplish anything. I don't care how talented a person is, you can't win a 250 sx title on talent alone. Unless you are Hills psychiatrist, then you likely don't know shit ... more »

Reply to OK, What is wrong with Eli? 1/19/2019 8:09 PM

Last year he was 50 points down by Anaheim 3. I think he's doing quite a bit better than that. But I get what you're saying. Last year he crashed out while leading. He hasn't lead anything yet this year.

Reply to Ralph Sheheen makes mistakes on the AIR 1/13/2019 4:21 PM

I think it was the year before last that he said "rider a is coming into the backside of rider b!" I don't remember the two riders, but I thought it was sort of funny.

Mine will not activate on Roku with the new app.

Reply to Seattle SX Track Map - Cross Traffic? 1/7/2019 9:13 PM

The start is what he's talking about. If a rider crashes at the start and takes a minute to get going, there could be a problem. The leaders could go through those two rythm lanes fairly quickly.

Reply to Webb 1/6/2019 7:28 AM

You mean his rookie 450 year where he got injured and his second 450 year where he also got injured, he didn't beat the veterans of the class? Yeah, that's a good gauge. I'm sure you'll be jumping on his bandwagon when he figures it out. I'm not saying ... more »

Reply to Do you watch all 17 rounds of SX? 11/22/2018 5:52 AM

I like mx a little more, but it's easier to watch sx. Mx takes up a huge block right in the middle of a Saturday. Sx is Saturday night. Easier to get together with buddies and have a sx viewing party. I watch every sx, but I also watch every mx, just ... more »

I'll put in my recommendation for Caineville! I used to go multiple times a year when I was living in Utah. Now I live in Oregon, and I'm still planning a trip out there. I love jumping and it has every size and type of jump you can imagine. My dad has ... more »

I have a 2018 devinci Spartan, it's an awesome bike. I was deciding between the Spartan, a yt capra, and the Kona process. I got the best deal on the Spartan. I also have a banshee spitfire with 140. It's a sweet bike too. If I were you, I'd get the ... more »
