I really don't think these decisions are anything to do with revenue. The amount the UCI makes out of a world cup downhill race is isn't much compared to other disciplines. The resort hosting the event has to meet the majority of costs (including uplifts ... more »

This sounds like a sensible move to me. It seems that standards are increasing, meaning more riders are achieving the required points at their home races to race at world cup level, however the gap between the top 30 and the slowest rider is still large. ... more »

Why would RedBull have anything to do with this decision? The RedBull live feed only shows the top 10 women plus the top 30 or so men anyway.

I hate to be one of the naysayers, but how can this be relevant for mountain bikes where you have ever changing conditions and grip levels? Even with the pressure turned down, you would still be able to lock the front wheel on loose gravel or wet clay. I hope they have a rock solid disclaimer because the people who buy this stuff are the people dumb enough to take legal action if they go over the handle bars when using this product.

He's actually pretty handy behind the wheel. Owns a drift car of some description.

It looks like you won't be able to rotate your worn grips to get the most life out of them either if they are basically locked in one position.

Good point! And not everybody runs their bars and grips at the same angle. I'm talking about grips that have a palm pad, flanges, ribs for finger grip, or dual compound grips. For example if you roll your bars forwards it's not possible to roll the grips backwards to compensate.

Sam always ran a similar set up in his Iron Horse days, but the shifter cable ran along the chainstay on the Sunday. Maybe it's just extra protection against snagging on rocks and chainslap.

Got to 2 minutes then switched off after the guy crashed on the step down. The risk to reward ratio for this event was ridiculous, and it didn't even look impressive to watch. It was fortunate that someone didn't leave with permanent injuries, or worse. McGarry was lucky. Red Bull have brought so many positive things to our sport but this wasn't one of them. The less said about this event the better.

Added a comment about video Watch Robbie Maddison Ride His MX ON THE WAVES OF TAHITI 8/3/2015 1:09 AM
Whilst I totally agree with the sentiment of your comment, an adapted mx bike is NOT the same as a motorboat. For one, it doesn't float, meaning he has to be wide open on the throttle to create buoyancy. Also it's probably inherently unstable, requiring a certain level of skill when the water is choppy or when riding down the face of a wave. Pointless but impressive.
