I know not a "big gun" but Commencal has yet to go carbon. I would assume they have big plans for later this season having home field advantage for World Champs. Will they be bold enough to try carbon or stick with the proven aluminum frame with minor ... more »

Could Beaumont aka Slugger be rambo dude in the rumors drawing? If you follow the lines none seem to end/originate from rambo dude. =/ Is Beaumont without a team for 2015?

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 »

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?

Dude, nothing beats the sound of a mountain bike tire pounding through some rocks.
