You should try road cycling, it seems you'd fit right in with them...

There's usually an embargo on announcements until the contract expires. He's probably under contract until the end of the year. Even so, he's not going to disappear from the scene all together. He still has lots of fans and followers so he'll still have ... more »

It reads to me like they are moving the majority of the distribution to England, so there won't be anything to subsidise (if that ever happened).

These look cool and seem to be very well designed and engineered. Carbon springs! Wow! I'd love to try a set. But, as amazing as these might be, they solve a problem that not many people are asking to be solved. I don't care if my Boxxers or Pikes dive. ... more »

Wonder if Adam Brayton will end up on a full factory ride. He deserves it after the year he's had.

I dunno, I can't see Bruni leaving Specialized/Gravity Rep. as confirmed by the Instagram post above. I reckon Brosnan will be joining Shaw and Minnaar at the Syndicate. Vergier will leave Gravity Republic but where to? Canyon with Barel as manager?

410k CHF, pluss course construction, staff, local promotion etc. We're talking at least half a million dollars to host an event. This probably explains the popularity of bikepark style courses. These guys can use the world cup to promote the bikepark to generate revenue all season. Proper technical tracks like Champery are just too difficult for the average Joe to go and ride, take the family etc. Not to mention the difficulty of access and filming in these locations. It's a shame really.

7 rounds is great but I was hoping for some new (or old) venues for next year! Sure Fort William, Mont St Anne, and Val di Sole are classics but there are so many great tracks out there. And no race in the USA again. Crazy! I guess it comes down to who can afford to host these things.

I think it's awesome how two guys who dominated completely different eras of downhill are battling it out to with 0.5s of each other at World Enduro.

Added a comment about feature Vital Stat Attack | Rachel Atherton 2015-2016, Anatomy of a Win Streak 9/15/2016 1:12 PM
C50

What I find interesting from looking at the numbers, is that when Rachel qualies in 2nd place, she only has to improve her time by a few percent to win the race. This tells me a few things. Rachel is conservative in her quali runs and is able to improve on race day. The other girls are riding at their limit just to beat Rach in qualies and often can't follow this up with consistency on race day. All in all I would say Rachel just rides at a higher level than her competitors, and is able to judge her speed and time to perfection, minimising risk and maximising consistency. It takes an impressive athlete and mental focus to do this over such a long period of time.

I do think if Pompon has a good off season and can stay injury free she can challenge Rachel. She has the raw speed, she just needs to wind it back a bit and stay on the bike. Once she gets a few good results she can judge how hard she has to push in order to beat Rach. Should be a good season next year, if a little short.

whats the relationship between force and mid stroke support? in the graph above the force required to move the suspension with ramp control at max is less in the mid stroke compared to 2 or 3 tokens. i run two tokens but i dont want softer forks for the first 2/3 of the travel.

Looks like it will work well for the guys who only need to run one token.

If you keep all other variables constant (eg. CS length, HT angle, stem length) then increasing reach should have the effect of putting more of the riders weight on the front wheel. The effect is pretty dramatic because the human head weighs around 5kg ... more »
