I honestly have never been able to keep up with all the differing styles of "mountain biking" there are. After a while, the terms cease to have any real meaning, like the vast array of different types of "Techno" music.
(Don't pay any attention to me, I have drop bars on my MTB.)

I ride xc because I am free to ride downhills, trails, hit some jumps, you know, the stuff all mountains have to offer.
