Jake Kinney

I couldn't imagine conducting an interview whilst riding this stuff. Not to mention busting out tricks.

Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine coast is a fantastic place to ride. This video does a nice job of showcasing what a lap through some of the trails there are like.

Anthony Messere

Fox recently did some product testing Northern California with Anthony Messere and Kirt Voreis. This is some of the footage the two of them logged while riding together.

The United States Congress is trying to push some legislation through the system THAT WILL CHANGE THE FACE OF INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT.  Gizmodo has a really nice layman's terms article explaining the bill and its effects HERE, which is definitely worth a read if you're not familiar with what is going on. Then, after you're filled with enough rage at the people pushing this shit, you can go HERE, HERE or HERE to write your congressperson and tell them you didn't elect them  LET YOUR INTERNET-LOVING VOICE BE HEARD.

dirtwest hotlaps - Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29

We shot another dirtwest hotlaps episode recently. This time around we gave some big wheels a go on a brand new section of trail.

The 2012 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29 uses an M5 aluminum frame and features 130mm of rear wheel travel, a custom Fox Triad II shock with one of the coolest functions I have used on a full suspension bike; AUTOSAG. To use the Autosag function, max out the pressure on the air shock, sit on the saddle, push the button on the triad II, and Voila! it figures out your perfect sag settings). Up front the FSR comes with a Fox Evolution F130 RL air-sprung fork, and a custom SRAM S-1250 10-speed XC Trail double crankset and,X9 rear derailler Avid Elixir 7 SL brakes.

Shot on location at Invergarry Park in Surrey BC

SORCE/Dirtwest Partnership

Some really great news has occured over the past couple months. Dirtwest is now partnered up with SORCE. I (Jordan) am now an executive member of Sorce. In my new role I will be focusing on the development of new riding facilities in Surrey.

So what does this mean to you ? First of all SORCE is officially changing their mandate to represent all of Surrey, and will be now working towards the continued maintenance of ALL surrey bike parks including Port Kells, Cloverdale Athletic Park, Invergarry Bike Park, South Surrey Bike Park, and working towards the development of additional facilities in the future (hopefully near future).

Some of the things we have on the go are: the completion of Invergarry bike park (which is slated to be complete by summer), trying to get SORCE represented on the Outdoor Sports Advisory Committee which will give us even stronger representation and lines of communication with the city, the return of the Junkyard Dog XC race, trying to get the 604 pump track legitimized or at least get some kind of official permission from the city for it to exist, and trying to get a plan of action to make the Surrey Bicycle Recreation Facilities Strategy a reality and in a timely fashion, and most importantly to unify the mountain biking community in Surrey to give us a stronger voice.

So what we need from you surrey's riding population is your voice! If you guys could check out the SORCE website and facebook page and click on the like button that would be awesome. If you want to take it a step further and join SORCE that would be 10 times as awesome. The reality of it is the more people we have on board the louder our voice gets, the louder our voice the more we are heard and listened to. More people more cool stuff!!!


Watch this for Darren Berrecloth's dirty mustache.

Darren and film crew set out from Vancouver island to search Utah for untouched big mountain lines. Cool riding ensues...
