Just uploaded podcast #11, and I'm starting to get into the swing of things. I've decided to try adding a once-a-week video to go along with the podcasts. I have too many things to show, and review and discuss that are better served with a visual I think. So keep [...]

Henrique Avancini retires

Great goodbye video with english captions: He had a great run. Not the longest career in XC, but a good one. Won some great races, was always going for it it seemed. He'd get out front then drift back. You could tell he wanted to hammer it all the [...]

Well, after 2 years of going back and forth on formats, it's been decided a weekly podcast, yes, another dreaded podcast, will be the first release from Short Travel Mag. Some things are best shown in a video, so we will also be releasing a weekly video, but the goal [...]
