Finally have a mountain bike show beyond the sports stations. Saturday time slots for sports TV (any canadian would know) now has drop in as a tv show. This is a huge step and props to drop-in. This sport is getting so strong in canada.

http://www.pinkbike.com/modules/news...leview&id=2342

Some amazing riders in the lineup too

Dylan Tremblay – Mellow, quirky, dread haired character obsessed about riding anything & anywhere unique. Dylan returns for his third straight season on the bus. Dylan is regularly stopped on the street for autographs so he gets left behind a lot.

Tyler Klassen – “Super T” is a methodical maniac. He carefully and strategically dissects high consequence moves which sometimes have him hurling himself off of 35 foot cliffs. Tyler is afraid of heights.

Steve Romaniuk – Steve exploded onto the pro mountain bike scene when he appeared as a member of the Drop In Crew for the second season of the series and proceeded to blow everyone away with his super smooth style and stoked personality.

Cameron McCaul – The California Kid show’s a true passion for the sport. When you don’t take your pads off for hours after a session and it’s all you think / talk about it’s an obsession and you can see it in Cam.

Ryan Schnepf – The Newcomer. Ryan stands out as the most consistent and hungry rider on the tour. He quickly became the resident bike mechanic and, being one of the older guys, ties a thread to the real world when things get too surreal.

To all canadians. Tape it watch it, send in comments to Global. Lets keep bringing this thing back

And lastly a teaser of the series

They have also released a movie without the rider bios in it.

Also for the US and international, I believe there are plans to get it released there too. Hopefully you guys can get it on TV

Props to you for mentioning it. I saw part of drop in 3, but I because of its time here (7:30) AM and PM, I'm always either sleeping, eating breakfast or doing homework, so I didn't catch much. I like their stuff, but they get boring if you watch them for a month in a row. I'm much more exhilerated when I learn a new gear ratio on my bike which I love.
