Why cant I expand this on iPad, this still happens, some vids fine most crap, cant understand in the tablet age we have coding like this! Vital used to be good for vid access content!

Aside from that, during practice why can't these arrogant fools move off the track when a rider is clearly doing a full run, rules need to be sorted and a auto DQ for these riders, see it all the time, Dh esp, I know for a fact they don't like it done to them! Start DQing these muppets!

So what I wanna know is what tires did teams end up running, were they caught out by that forecasted weather and run dry tires since the most of the day was good, or did they run cut down spikes or did anyone run a mud tyre?

When I compare Champery 2011 most were prepared for the weather tyre wise!

I'd argue it drives cost, not innovation, it will take another 2 years of development to get 29ers to where 27.5".

I'm a 29er fan, but Ai don't think it's nessacikry a good move for DH from a competition point of view or for tracks that DH racers will be raced on, and that's a big fact people are not taking into account.

Well that's realitive to skill level, anyone can ride anything, but can everyone ride it well, or at the same level given the same variables! Fabian said it best can someone like Troy ride a 29er as well as Florian Payet, tall riders have been riding std wheeel sizes for ever, in fact pre 2007 tall riders dominated DH and many tracks were reffered to as a big mans track, only in recent times with bikes having lighter weight better suspension gears etc etc has that balance become even, I'd argue at the moment in 27.5" guise DH has never been more competitive or balanced!!!!

Btw I ride 29ers and wouldn't go back to a std size wheel, I'm 6'.0"

But like most Professional competions, as Nico says who also raced WRC so he has an even better understanding of true global World Championship racing that they're are rules to allow progression and standardised rules for all teams to follow!

UCI rule is, if it's raced then it must be on sale in 9months to general public! So that being said, you'd prob want your other teams riding the product, get it developed and first to be in OEM and after sales, why would you hold back other teams that ... more »

I think all the e spec while interesting to debate, reality is unlike what 27.5" did to 26" which was too fold, the industry wanted everyone on 27.5" for the next big wave to influence sales in stagnant MTB market, which it did! The wheel did not have ... more »

This is the first time I see a e bike as a useful tool, not something for selffish longue lizards to go ruin hard work and access to trails butnprotect and maybe build and maintain trails, other than they should be banned from normal trail use and centres! Good work XFusion!!
