They make it look so easy

It is amazing how Steve Peat and Greg Minnaar, who are at the absolute top tier of their sport, make terrain that would make a typical mountain biker curl up into a sobbing ball look like just another day going down the bike trail. Peat is following Minnaar in this clip.


Worthless Trvia: Minnaar used to race on downhill bikes made by some obscure Asian company named, oh what was it?...., oh yeah-Honda.

Playing with new tech

GPS app on my lame ass Blackberry. Road the Gateway with JACC. Nice trail.

Killer MRI

A video demonstrating how powerful the magnets in an MRI machine are.

"Fun, games and safety implications with a 4 tesla (T) MRI magnet that was about to be decommissioned."

What is wrong with this picture?

Salem Hills park in Inver Grove Heights. The mountain bike trails were officially opened for the first time this year. 80 muggy degrees. Sounds great. The problem? It was flippin MARCH 18th!!!!!!!!! MARCH!!!!

Last year my first ride on dirt was May 6th. The winter of 2011-12 will go down as the weirdest I have ever experienced. I am not a big fan of winter, but this was ridiculous. We are in the middle of a huge drought and it isn't even April. I have absolutely no idea what the hell this summer is going to be like.

But remember folks-climate change is a hoax.

Yes, I had a great time riding. But what the hell?
