The bike is certainly durable. I know this cause I still race one =) . The chain guide mount was the first to go though. That chainguide was horrible and very loud. Never thought to grind the cable housings off by the knees. Looking at two deep holes in each of my knee pads it is probably a good thing to do.

I smell a trap! Maybe? Neko might not be the rider we are looking for. Could there be more subtle hints in the picture? Who is that sitting next to Ratboy that you can barely see in the window reflection? Or even better who is that taking the picture. ... more »

No disrespect to the current riders on their teams but it seems like the big bike cos Giant,Trek?,Specialized? are dumping top talent this year to "downsize" their teams. In return the smaller teams have picked up some top talent. Insider knowledge that ... more »

True. The trick will be how many points though? I vaguely recall the first Plattekill ProGRT awarding UCI points and it was like only 1 or 2 points for first place in Elite. Any way to see how many points C2 UCI races award?

That sounds great but "It means less travel for our riders, which provides more opportunity for American international success" makes me scratch my head based on the coast to coast flip flopping of the proposed 2015 schedule.

I am going to take a walk on the crazy side with no facts to back up this theory and say the rider not racing world cups this year is Aaron Gwin. Maybe he is not thrilled with the last few seasons, has an opportunity knocking in motorcross this year ... more »

I think the order of that sentence is backwards. Specialized left Eric Carter. Letting that article go live must be the nail in the coffin so I wonder who is going to be lucky to have Carter as a manager if he wants to keep in the game?

It looks like Redbull updated the clock to be ticking down to Monday 3pm.

Obviously a lot can change to move that again. I really hope everybody's lines are recoverable in a reasonable timeframe.
