04:08
Opening day today at Mammoth Mountain Bike Park! This is lower Pipeline and Shotgun Trail.

Wet laps are the BEST LAPS!!
 
07:13
Slippery muddy conditions Sunday afternoon at Snow Summit Bike Park. That trail, Miracle Mile, was so good!! My 2x10 setup is really giving me troubles lately though. I'm thinking of ditching the front derailleur for good and go 1x10. And make every climb a strength training workout! I was shooting with the GoPro HERO5 Session under the visor. Let me know how that looks. I wanted to see how it would sound in the rain. Also still rocking that random color grading look until I have time to figure this out. Aside from looking like it was shot on Venus, the contrasts look good though! ▶ WHERE IS THIS • Location: Snow Summit, Big Bear Lake CA, USA • Segment Map: https://www.strava.com/segments/4210067 • Bike Park Map: http://bit.ly/2dtUC31 ▶ MY STUFF • Bike: http://bit.ly/2IDToCG • Gear: https://amzn.to/2ICJRzR ▶ SUPPORT THE CHANNEL • Become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/bengoyette ▶ FOLLOW ME • Blog: http://thebikecomesfirst.tumblr.com • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sachoben/ • Strava: https://www.strava.com/athletes/bengoyette • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bengoyette1 • G+: https://plus.google.com/+BenGoyette

Techno Rock to Velocity to Twilight Zone, Mammoth Mountain California
 
05:44
That's a fun lap at Main Lodge. It was the first time I was doing Techno Rock & mid-Velocity. The "Pro Line" sign is a bit intimidating, but it's still doable on the enduro bike. ▶ WHERE IS THIS • Location: Mammoth Mountain, Mammoth Lakes CA, USA • Segment Map: https://www.strava.com/segments/4967628 ▶ MY STUFF • Bike: http://bit.ly/2IDToCG • Gear: https://amzn.to/2ICJRzR ▶ SUPPORT THE CHANNEL • Become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/bengoyette ▶ FOLLOW ME • Blog: http://thebikecomesfirst.tumblr.com • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sachoben/ • Strava: https://www.strava.com/athletes/bengoyette • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bengoyette1 • G+: https://plus.google.com/+BenGoyette

MEGAKAMI DH Race at Mammoth Mountain California
 
01:30
Mass start Kamikaze race? MEGAKAMI! That wasn't the original plan at all for Round #8 of the VCDH Race Series. But a thunderstorm quickly approaching the summit was either going to force an evacuation OR they could send all racers at once. Riders voted and this happened; It was so much fun!! I hope they do it again :-) It was my first participation in the VCDH Race Series. This is a completely free "for fun" race series that runs every Friday 5pm at Mammoth Mountain. And they have a post race party with food, drinks & raffle! Awesome way to start a weekend!

First Run, First Crash, Mammoth Bike Park Opening day 2016
 
03:13
That's lower Follow Me Trail -- the steep part at the end. Turns out it wasn't open yet and some loose boulders on the line caught me at speed. I was actually searching for lower Bullet Trail -- which was open -- but I missed it and ended up there. Oh well! RIP my chain. It got bent when I tried to pedal after the crash; I had not noticed there was a knot in it!!

Enduro Ride: Recoil + Twilight Zone Mammoth Mountain Bike Park
 
07:19
Checking out the new features in the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park in California. Sorry for the bad/absent audio. My GoPro Hero4 black is defective and intermittently not recording good audio. It seems like the microphone has a bad internal connection. There's crackling and popping when the audio comes back. I'm desperately waiting for the customer support to authorize a warranty replacement... I'm on the 6th email with 2-3 days delay in response time between emails... They think I'm not using it correctly *sigh*. The camera is mounted with GoPro's The Frame 2nd generation and nothing blocking the mic holes. Same setup as all my other videos. ▶ WHERE IS THIS? • Location: Mammoth Bike Park, Mammoth Lakes, CA, USA ▶ WATCH MORE • All my videos at Mammoth Bike Park: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLee8C_8FffsRPNgA6c6I9nDd_xE7s3o36

KBG 2017 Enduro Practice DC-10
 
06:15
Practicing Stage 1 for the Kamikaze Bike Games at Mammoth Mountain next week. The race is part of the California Enduro Series and a qualifying event for the Enduro World Series (EWS). DC-10 is a new stage this year! It is one of the gnarliest runs at Mammoth. There's a pretty intimidating rock garden that I still haven't cleaned. The A-line is actually quite obvious. Just hit the big rock and keep a straight line. But the problem is, on the unique dirt at Mammoth, keeping a straight line is often the hardest part! The margin for error is very narrow and there's a big consequence to crashing there. So I worked on a B-line -- what I like to call the "fastest reliably survivable" line. I unclip my right foot, go around the big rock from the left and cut across the trail to the other side where it's safer. It's maybe 5 secs slower, but at least it won't end my race halfway through Stage 1.

Riding from the top of Gray's Peak in Fawnskin California. It's Big Bear Lake we see at the beginning. Also first time trying the VIRB Editor with G-Metrix overlay. It's obviously not dialed.

Pre-riding the new US Cup Pro XC Course at Bonelli Park

Brutal course! With very steep 'punchy' (understatement) climbs, extra choppy terrain and a good dose of man-made log-type features to hop over. It's going to be a hell of a lap on race day (in a good way). Bring it on! Round #2 of the US Cup Pro Series is this Saturday 04/08 at Frank G. Bonelli Park near Los Angeles. It is a UCI HC event -- which means a lot of precious points are up for grabs -- so the top 100+ UCI Elite mountain biking athletes on the continent (or farther) are coming in town to throw it down! Come check it out, it's a spectator friendly course, open to the public, with easy access to vantage points.

Lower Bullet DH, Mammoth Bike Park Opening Weekend 2016

A few practice laps on lower Bullet DH. This is the pro DH course at Mammoth Mountain; where they do the National Championship. I didn't feel fast at all, but Strava told me I smashed my PR by 10 seconds from my Kamikaze Bike Games race time. So I guess that's good news! I remember I was feeling on the bleeding edge of disaster at that race. Making progress, but still ways to go before hitting all the fast lines.

The bike park opening day is for... smashing PRs?? I was surprised to see a Strava pixel medal on this run -- I was just having fun with the spicy new lines -- but as it turns out fun is fast! The Mammoth Bike Park just opened last weekend (June 23rd) in California. There's still a lot of snow to melt, but it's so rad to be able to snowboard in the morning and ride the bike in the afternoon. /// WHERE IS THIS • Location: Mammoth Bike Park, Mammoth Lakes, CA, USA • Segment Map: https://www.strava.com/segments/2255660 // BIKE GEAR • Mountain Bike: http://bit.ly/2bRdLff • Front Tire: http://amzn.to/2ccgf93 • Rear Tire: http://amzn.to/2bSyuSE • Pedals: http://amzn.to/2ccjE7Q • Helmet: http://amzn.to/2bBzWep • Gloves: http://amzn.to/2p9K8fl • Googles: http://amzn.to/2oGtlR2 • Sunglasses: http://amzn.to/2bX957r • Neck Brace: http://amzn.to/2cdQS6t • Knee Guards: http://amzn.to/2csiidg • Elbow Guards: http://amzn.to/2bWJsWD • Hydratation Pack: http://amzn.to/2cafTPU • Bike GPS: http://amzn.to/2bHb3IF • GPS Mount: http://amzn.to/2c5YjNW // CAMERA GEAR • Camera Helmet: http://amzn.to/2bJx6QI • Camera Handlebar: http://amzn.to/2fNXwGc • B-roll Camera: http://amzn.to/2mUA4tP • Camera Mount: http://amzn.to/2bRgJjU • Camera Frame: http://amzn.to/2bCIGhH • Camera Mount for the handlebar: http://amzn.to/2c2999x • Battery Pack: http://amzn.to/2cchW65 • Another spare battery because we shred all day: http://amzn.to/2cciuJc • Foam thingy to reduce wind noise: http://amzn.to/2c8PmCd • Battery Bank: http://amzn.to/2nOICj4 // FOLLOW ME • Blog: http://thebikecomesfirst.tumblr.com • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sachoben/ • Strava: https://www.strava.com/athletes/bengoyette • G+: https://plus.google.com/+BenGoyette • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bengoyette1

"7 Bridges" is a trail often overlooked at Mammoth (because it's hard to choose to skip Pipeline) but it's a super fun little trail. It's following a creek and you cross over many times on bridges.

A very short Short Track XC race at the 2017 US Cup in Fontana California
 
10:23
Sunday's STXC race was pinned! Podium: 1st - CHRISTOPHER BLEVINS 2nd - JERRY DUFOUR 3rd - TODD WELLS I was dead last in 32nd :D Plenty of mistakesI learned from. Not being aggressive enough on lap 1, sitting on Derek's wheel to catch a breath, thinking about the pace I'd have left for the +3 laps, stopping for a noise on my bike. All that is totally useless when you're already down by 1 min on lap 1 on a sub 2 min lap and the 80% rule is in effect. You just have to keep it pinned no matter what, as if the next corner is always the last. But ultimately that race format is not worth it for slower guys like me. We get pulled from the race too soon on such a short course. I should have done the Kenda Cup Pro XC that Sunday and collected good points instead. But I'm glad I've seen what this was about.

Sometimes we eat it
 
09:26
The bike park is opening this weekend! Make sure you keep the rubber side down; it's a long season. That day my Bronson felt like a new bike. I had new wheels and had the suspension serviced. Normally I would do a scoping out run on Miracle Mile before I would record a run. But because there was a long line that day I decided to record the first lap and started pushing more and more. The bike just wanted to go! Then in that narrow section, I went too far on the edge of the trail, the side collapsed, and the next thing I knew my face was scraping the ground with my bike on top of me. The impact was so brutal I thought for sure I had a broken shoulder or collarbone. I was waiting for the adrenaline to wear off to see which body part would stop moving. But turns out I was very lucky and nothing was broken. Though it sucks that I tore out the first and only Team Dream Team enduro jersey :( ▶ WHERE IS THIS • Location: Snow Summit Bike Park, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA • Bike Park Map: http://bit.ly/2dtUC31 • Ride Map: https://www.strava.com/activities/1232567960 ▶ MY STUFF • Bike: http://bit.ly/2IDToCG • Gear: https://amzn.to/2ICJRzR ▶ SUPPORT THE CHANNEL • Become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/bengoyette ▶ FOLLOW ME • Blog: http://thebikecomesfirst.tumblr.com • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sachoben/ • Strava: https://www.strava.com/athletes/bengoyette • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bengoyette1 • G+: https://plus.google.com/+BenGoyette
