I’m a longtime subscriber and this is just a note of thanks for the opening editorial by Nicole Formosa. It’s appreciated that she briefly summed up the insanity of this year. The stream of tragedies we have witnessed and endured seems to have grown exponentially in 2017. Of course, mountain biking has always brought us back to the present moment and refueled our passion for riding and our belief in humanity. Thanks for acknowledging the pain of today and the ever-present antidote.
