gticlay - what is that with the "up and down"! No 'up and down'. Puuuuleaze .
What we care about is ascent!! You can include descent as well if so inclined as the other two do.
Okay - back to the numbers!
gticlay - you got me by just a little! I would have ridden in the rain in late Dec if I knew .
149,014 feet UP.
70% on a Mach 5.
LOL I'd have to check but I think that's 220,000 ft of up. But it could very well be 440,000 feet of up plus 440,000 of down. Should be equal since I ride right from my house.

I think I'm going to shoot for double this year, but not sure if I can.
It would be cool if Pivot offered something more than a tee shirt and less than a full xtr bike to any non-pro who takes a Mach 5, 5.7, Firebird or Phoenix over 500,000 feet of climbing in 1 year. That would be a fun publicity stunt.
Total year 2010 :
2346 kms offroad (1500 Miles) and 50870 m ascent (150000 feet)
Since mid January 2011, I got my new Mach 5.7 to improve that
