Theo Dilworth, Allout Productions - The Inside Line
Welcome mountain bikers! Thanks for tuning into The Inside Line. I apologize for the haggard voice on this intro as I'm battling some sickness. Speaking of sickness, today's episode with Theo Dilworth of Allout Productions is a cracker! Sean Griz McClendon, plays host as they discuss the good times of filming and riding bikes! Theo's video catalog runs deep and his influence on keeping our sport fun and fresh is unparalleled.
Please be aware that this show is not bleeped and there is adult language and subjects in this episode. Griz, Theo and all you Vital MTB listeners, thanks so much! Enjoy the show!

Steel City Media's Joe Bowman - The Inside Line
Welcome mountain bikers! Can you believe we started on this journey with The Inside Line podcast five years ago?! When we think about how fun mountain biking is and how incredible the people in our sport are, it’s no surprise that the time flew by. Everyone at Vital would like to thank you, the listener, for joining us on this ride. Rides with friends are always more fun and without you sharing the stoke with us, there’d be no reason to tell the stories from our community. Thank you!
We have a great show today with Joe Bowman of Steel City Media. Not just a man behind a video camera or social media channel, he’s pretty hand on a bike and is the reason The Union World Cup downhill team exists to help give young riders a shot at the big time. He is also the filmer behind the first Vital RAW with Adam Brayton at Schladming back in 2013!

Aaron Lutze - The Inside Line Podcast
Welcome mountain bikers. I’m really excited about today’s Inside Line podcast. Our guest started Rob Warner’s twitter account, helped logistically get the first Freecaster World Cup Downhill live streams off the ground, was the man behind Match Videozine, may be the biggest trials fan ever and was an athlete manager at Red Bull for years. This is just the tip of the iceberg when describing Aaron Lutze history in our sport. I hope you get a kick out of the stories and history with Aaron Lutze today, and maybe you’ll learn something new too. Enjoy the show!

Boise Bike Park Head of Maintenance - Dustin Zeis
Welcome mountain bikers! Thanks for tuning into The Inside Line podcast. Today I’m stoked to have Dustin Zeis on the show. Dustin is the reason the Boise Bike Park keeps its flow and runs so well throughout riding season. As Head of Maintenance, he's a Boise city employee blending his passion for riding bikes with building trails. In this episode, we discuss how he turned his love of getting two wheels off the ground into a full-time job.
If you have a public bike park or trails system in your area, make sure you thank the people that make it run. It’s such a great time to be a mountain biker with so many places to ride. Enjoy the show!

Even though winter is coming in, Maxxis tires still keep us gripping and ripping on the trails, no matter what the conditions. I’m back to a Minion DHR II front and Aggressor rear combo on my Santa Cruz 5010, and they’ve been nothing but fast and predictable.
Speaking of Santa Cruz, they offer free lifetime bearing replacements on all their full-suspension frames, and they’ve pledged 1 million dollars over 3 years to trail projects and groups through their Paydirt Fund.
