Phil's KL Biking Movie - Part 6The second part of the history of the Kiara mountain biking scene, starting from 2004. Written and narrated by Pat Brunsdon & Phil Bee. This segment details the trailwork and maintenance required to keep the tracks under repair, the many jumps, bridges and other constructions, and also the history of the "Wasteland" trail, accessing the main part of the hill from Sri Hartamas.With Kiara under pressure on all sides from urban development, progress has been made in formal recognition, and protection of the forest. The TRAKS organisation was also founded to help trail users have a collective voice, and to express their wish to preserve the trail network.The story brings us to January 2012 with the construction of the park boundary fences - a good thing for protection from development, but at the same time cutting off trail access and limiting movement of wildlife. The ongoing threat of development immediately outside of the park boundary continues.Credit is due to Fakawitribe.com for screenshots of their website, and use of part of their video on construction of the Magic Carpet re-routed trail.
Me and Martin Söderström entered in the GoPro Video Challenge up in Åre, Sweden. We got there a day late, I got sick and Martin had to go to Stockholm for one of the days, so we are super pumped we figured it out. We managed to win best edit, best POV and best rider. Thanks for a sick week! TEAM DOUUUUCHE

NGOs and resident groups are calling for the National Landscape Department to issue a stop-work order to the contractors at Bukit Kiara to prevent further tree-felling and forest clearance activities. This comes after the department set up 3.5 metre-high fencing to demarcate the park and increase security for park visitors.
In the following interview, Henry Goh, chairman of the Malaysian Nature Society Selangor Branch, explains why residents and NGOs are opposing the fencing and development work at Bukit Kiara, the status of land ownership and the challenges of gazetting Bukit Kiara as a permanent forest reserve.

Catherine Pendrel guides us through the XCO course at Mont-Sainte-Anne
Canada's Catharine Pendrel, the current women's cross country World Champion, is on home territory and a track at Mont-Sainte-Anne that she knows very well.
The challenging, technical and demanding track will mean that riders will have to be focussed throughout with Catherine stating that there are no easy sections of the course.
Catherine showcases a newer section of the Mont-Sainte-Anne course that has been introduced for this year's XCO event.
The rocky singletrack climb leads into a greater steep pitch climb. This is sure to punish the legs after a number of laps.
Riders will also have to be wary of the technical rock-filled decents of Mont-Sainte-Anne which has tripped many up before.
Mont-Sainte-Anne can be hot and humid but Catherine tell us that more often than not the course can be "wet and greasy" particularly with the changeable Canadian weather. Let's hope for good weather Saturday.
Watch the Women’s and Men’s XCO live from Mont-Saint-Anne on Saturday June 23 from 4.20pm BST (5.20pm CET) on RedBull.com/bike
