Specialized Wants to Remind You That XC is Cool Too

Within the weird subculture that is mountain biking exist even more highly polarized subcultures. Enduro, DH, cross country, you name it. While they all involve rolling around on dirt aboard a two-wheeled machine, sparks would fly if you dared confuse a DHer with an endurbro or a lycra-clad weight weenie.

The funny thing though, is that bikes these days are attempting to bridge that gap more than ever. With Enduro bikes descending just as well as a DH rigs, XC bikes are catching up just as fast. With the release of their new aggressive-XC bike the Epic EVO, Specialized would like to remind you that XC can be cool too. I mean tabletops and mini-whips aboard a spritely 120mm-travel race whip? That’s not bad.

P.S. The lyrics to the song are amazing.

Surrounded by very bright people, and the school believes students can handle more than a normal workload (am I smart enough?) 2. Expensive; Am I worth this to my parents? Can I pay this back? 3. Close contact with faculty. I can’t fake it with the teacher sitting 10 feet away. In this small class, I’ll be asked questions and forced to prove myself to them.

Vinny T’s POV From Royal Hill FEST is Complete Insanity

While the rest of the world is getting amped about Crankworx, the unsanctioned FEST series continues to do whatever the hell it wants—and we love it. Created by the riders for the riders, the Fest just made a house call at Nico Vink's mountain bike and FMX course, and things get rowdy. Vink sculpted an impeccable line of jumps and the riders celebrate by sending it big. To get a sense of the amplitude, preview the course from Vincent Tupin's eyes as he hits two of the lines—any guesses how
