Becoming a pro mountain biker

What’s up Lee? I’m Scott from Lake Tahoe. I love to ride downhill and freeride, I live for it, and I am really thinking about making it what I do for a living, so I’m curious, how much do the pro’s make? take someone like Cedric Gracia or Brian Lopes, I am really interested in finding out, because not only would I love to race and ride my bike pro, but I would really love to make a living out of it. Thanks Lee, you rock, I look forward to getting a reply back. Peace out.

Tour of California Day 5 – San Juan Trail

There are almost 6,000 reviews in there, a few of which are actually literate.

Tour de California Day 3: Mammoth Mountain Ski Area

After hitting Mr. Toad’s in South Lake Tahoe, my buddy Jim Norman and I headed south toward Mammoth. The weather was perfect and since it was the week after Labor Day, the roads were empty.
