The usual mix of stylish designs, good colour combos, and kid's pyjamas. Something for everyone!

Downhill is an individuals sport so the reference to sports leagues is irrelevant in this case. I really don't see how preventing riders having their own personal kit and/or equipment sponsors will equate to more earnings for them. As the most successful ... more »

I can totally understand the relevance of the rule in team events, where you have more than one member of the same team competing at the same time. For example in a road race, it's very useful to be able to easily distinguish when team riders are riding ... more »

Interesting...I'll have a guess at Ferran Jorba Prats (based on age/world ranking) Luca Shaw and Jack Moir.

How can you pitch an 'American Dream' to an American who is already on an American team (Yeti at the time)? I think Gwin moved for other reasons (money/support/factory location etc).

Just because a company sells lots of bikes, doesn't mean their marketing budget is unlimited, especially for a niche discipline such as downhill. To quote Eric Carter himself; "I know Specialized is currently in the process of seeing what the program ... more »

Not sure if these are functioning forks. Notice that the gold writing on the stanchion is catching the light on the upper edges. This would suggest to me that the writing has a thickness and the surface isn't smooth, like it is vinyl stuck on. The lack ... more »

Probably the same reason they axed a team manager who took them to their best season to date. Having read the EC interview on PB it seems that a management change has led to a shake up of their downhill racing program and probably some cost cutting. ... more »

Weren't Ragot and Macdonald on the Mondraker team together. Ragot to Trek then? edit - just noticed sspomer's post above. I definitely agree. Ragot is still one of the fastest ladies in the world despite her hints at retiring.

Thanks for clearing that up guys...still learning here :-) It just shows the natural ability to be able to ride such a wild, fast line and make decisions on the fly. This whole event blows my mind!

0:48s I'm sure having a guy walking next to the lip of a jump waving his arms around and hollering like a lunatic really helps with concentration.

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

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.
