Great quali from Tahnee and great initial result for Transition bikes too, good luck for race run!

Loic and Rat will be epic this year, if both stay healthy could be a real rivalry there, hope so we need a war at the top, everyone is too nice, be nice after race day, be at War before and on the day, win or go home!

Bring it home Sammy Hill (ftw)
lol.

I love techology and its cool the cool kids can have so many cool toys, but the EWS is going the way of the UCI, maybe being forced by the industry, but it needs to fight back, no practice on courses it should be blind, at most a seperate day/s for a track walk only!

Key here in relation to this article is Bikes should be limited to one bike for the season for pros esp, this means the development of bikes will continue and provide closer competition rather than who has the most toys or most effective quiver of toys wins, of course courses should remain tough, this and other comparisons is showing the direction the nature of the EWS is becoming and imo fwiw its a bad thing for the disipline in the mid to longer term!

Sort it out before it gets to complicated and or too elitist if it hasnt already, as road biking racing and XC did to MtB in the previous decade, dont let Enduro destroy the rest of mtb and racing!

White walls not fat walls should have been the next big thing, or next big old thing, bike industry always behind on the hills!

Liked a comment on the item Checking Out Gee Atherton's Trek Session 9.9 2/17/2016 9:38 PM

Funny how Gee gets so much grief. Winners are focused and often very serious. This guy puts so much work in and sacrifices a great deal out of his daily life to chase tenths a of seconds only to get crappy commentary from Internet aficionados. Kind of a bummer, really....more

well done Vital again leading the way for DH..

But whats up with elite teams, Giant factory Racing is not elite, Norco Factory, CRC really, Divinci Global, GT Factory, typical UCI dickheads all about money and not promoting the sport of DH, this does not help grow potential sponsors, I understand gold silver bronze levels of committement, but many of these teams have been supporting the sport even with a big barrier named the UCi in front of them, twats again, why dont some ex DHers get in to the UCI and run DH under the umbrella but without there interference people who obviously no nothing about the sport are ambassadors for, find some who understand know and want to grow cycling thats not full of lycra! I know thats a big wish, prob no Dhers drink gin and have dickhead attitudes.

Concur, awesome pad, even when I dont need them I use them, Ive teste them in a few stacks in DH, did not move on me on impact and didnt feel a thing, by far best impact and comfort pad Ive ever used,magain ridden or tried most out theyre, also breath as well as anything comparable, still puch em down on long Enduro climbs, but not a nessicity like with all lther pads Ive used. Ill be adding some Tactics and Coverts as soon as btw.
