I don't think these filling with mud is a big problem, but muddy water will get in between the carbon elements, either during a ride or when washing the bike. I wonder how quiet they will be with a grinding paste of dirt in there. I wouldn't want to remove my shock and remove/clean a stack of 40 or so 'elements' every time i wash my bike.

Reading between the lines, I guess that means Blenki is leaving Lapierre?

I can't see Gwin leaving Specialized having not achieved any significant victories (by his standards I mean - I know a World Cup win isn't to be taken lightly). Also they have just launched the new bike and he must have had input into it's development. ... more »

I agree I can't see Hill leaving CRC. At this point in his career when he has rediscovered his form, it seems crazy to switch teams and put it all at risk. I'm sure that one of the Specialized guys will go (having to run both Rockshox and Fox can't have ... more »

Like the idea but the SC logo on the downtube looks a bit shit.

It's a pretty impossible comparison really. It's like comparing Fangio to Schumacher or Senna with Hamilton. They are riders from different eras and the sport has changed massively, both in terms of the tracks and equipment they use. There's no doubt ... more »

Brilliant footage as ever but I had to mute the speakers half way through. What's with the gash, over dramatic, hollywood style music on these Red Bull edits. It's like they send the footage to RB, then some corporate pleb adds the soundtrack.

I think it's good that RedBull are getting involved. The speed these edits are available is unbelievable and more resources can only be a good thing for the filmmakers. Plus I can now watch the live coverage in comfort on Apple TV. Sad to lose Dirt TV and I only hope that Red Bull give us unbiased footage, rather than it being focused on Red Bull sponsored riders.

That frame is a work of art, and the custom etching is a nice touch. Build is let down slightly by the fork decals.
