Norco UCI world cup DH team

2010 Dirt Team news

January 25th, 2010 @ 2:40 PM
Well it has been shrouded in mystery, but it is true, there will be a Dirt race team for 2010.
Ben Reid and Dan Stanbridge will be representing Dirt on board Norco bikes giving you the “Dirt Norco Race Team”
All we can say now is watch this space. Stanny, Ben and Ali (team mechanic) have been working hard to organise everything from sponsorship to kit design, and the fitting out of a 26ft team bus.

Everyone at Dirt HQ is excited about the team and once everything is finalised (kit designs are almost finished and will be released along with a list of co-sponsors very soon) you’ll be the first to know.

Wyn masters and Blinky teammates?

I suspect so. I was watching Wyn's new edits and the bike at 3:46 sure looks like a La pierre velo dh 920. Hmmm could be the french based company is hiring an all New Zealand roster for its DH team.

Are Wyn Masters and Sam Blenkinsop teammates?
Let's watch and see what gets announced over the next coming weeks...

Hope yer wrist is better soon Blinky!

This is a 30 minute vidder, so grab your preferred beverage, hit full-screen, and watch some fast guys from south-western England shred some berms and get some air miles.

It's time...

Resident rabid 4x proponent Kyle here to remind you that the Pipeline Indoor 4x season at the Abbotsford Indoor BMX track is ready to pick back up this week! Intense gated action resumes on the 16th!

While I may be out for blood, a red haze clouding my vision coming out of the first berm, my opponents left weeping, and much gnashing of teeth (do they have a smack talk award?) the whole idea is to have some fun on a bike in a nice, dry spot with a bunch of fellow mountain bikers.

Check the race reports from the previous races here, here, and here.

Winter riding

We were on Eagle mountain this week.

If you only love trails circa 1999 you'll love eagle!
Trail builders are rebuilding old trails in old-skool style.

Eagle has one of the longest hikes of all the local mountains. It has amazing potential in terms of terrain and possibility for cool features. Unfortunately, builders on Eagle have a different view of what 'good trails' are.

Isn't it 2010? This landing was so steep, that it couldn't hold dirt on the slope. Hopefully that gets destroyed tweaked.

Here's an edit that makes riding Eagle look deceivingly fun:

Rescue This!

Just a little update to a previous post.

The controversial man behind Bike Rescue is done. A judge handed down a two year jail sentence after Gordon Blackwell pled guilty to 36 charges of possession of stolen property and one count of theft.

If your bike was stolen in the past year and a half or so, it's worth an e-mail to nvstolenbikes@rcmp-grc.gc.ca with the year, make, model, colour, and any unique features. A picture or serial number would be a good idea, too.

News story here.
