A couple of seasons back I watched Stevie race at the Hafjell world cup. The conditions were dry for practise but rain was forecast for race day. Stevie sessioned his wet lines for both practise days, displaying his unique, loose but powerful style. I watched as he hit the exact same lines, time after time with military precision. Race day came and the heavens opened. Whilst other riders were changing their lines and getting their heads in a mess, Stevie was on it. I watched his finals run as he once again hit his lines to perfection with amazing accuracy, taming the wet roots and rocks, carrying immense speed, and of course going on to win the race and the overall. He had the measure of the track and every other rider that weekend.

This year it seemed that he was on his way back to that form that took him to the very top of our sport. Bad luck took him out of the running in Cairns but the wheelie over the line showed his spirit and good nature. This is a very sad day for me, a true Chainsaw fan, and my thoughts go out to Stevie's family and friends. RIP Stevie. You were and always will be an inspiration every time I throw a leg over my bike.

Gonna have to call you out on that one. Mik is one of the most powerful guys on the circuit...2nd at Pietermaritzburg in 2014 proves that. Brosnan has shown he's not lacking in power...1st in Fort William 2014 with the infamous 'motorway' section.

Not sure about the graphics. Look like a mix between 2013 Rockshox and 2016 Fox designs.

As a fellow Northern Englishman I can translate :-) He was talking about last weekend, getting wasted with his mates, then the day after going to a holiday place called Center Parcs, going on the water slide, taking a dip in the pool, getting chased by security guards and making a quick getaway in his mate's mum's Skoda Labia (Fabia). Josh is absolutely hilarious...when everyone else is getting serious, he's out getting up to no good with the lads.

Interesting comments from Peaty. Much of the impetus for the UCI point rules came from current WC teams and athletes pushing to make the WC's more exclusive to top-tier riders only. Seems those feelings change a bit when confronted with the...more

Sorry Mathias, even Arnold Schwarzenegger could have made a better job of narrating that. FFS Audi, what a ridiculous waste of time and money. Pretty embarrassing for everyone involved I think.

I think Gee mentioned on Twitter that Trek turned up at one of the early test sessions with a freshly moulded carbon frame. He was blown away that they moulded a prototype frame in carbon, and it looked like the finished article. Trek haven't signed the Athertons to send them out on bikes that don't fit them.
