I am so sorry for your loss. The entire DH community will always remember him. I remember you saying "We're just shooting for number one in the world. Who knows maybe one day he'll get there." Well. He got it. Very few people achieve their dreams. Even...more

Is the Session Gee is using considerably smaller than the Fury he was on last year?

Fake jerseys and shorts these days are so close to the real thing that you'll only be able to tell them apart when these are side-by-side with the real thing. Just don't count on them to be durable, though. AliExpress is rife with "suppliers".

Atlas hb instead of a SixC, interesting choice.

That was Loic's to lose, really, shame he couldn't put it together in the last few corners. Gwin, though, is a class act.

Would there be a possibility of CRC moving to M90 rims (since ENVE has been bought by Mavic's parent company)?

Let's hope Asia and Africa get to join the EMBA party in 2017. There isn't enough racial diversity in cycling as it is and that shouldn't be the case with Enduro.

Can anyone confirm it is indeed a SRAM drivetrain on Gwin's Tues?

It's great that Scott still sponsors Paul Bas.

A massive amount of exposure for any sport never hurt it. There will be purists (i.e. snobs) who will scoff at a sport's commercialization, of perhaps a certain rider "selling out", or perhaps lose interest when a sport gains mass appeal. Such elitist

Yup, I read the article. Just wanted to show that KTM sponsoring a DH racer isn't that far-fetched after all.

Heard it's $1.4-billion now. I hope whoever wins it doesn't lose their minds.

Check out this Foxhead KTM Red Bull jersey (no, it's not Aaron Gwin).

Hmm... I thought Leov would be going to either Canyon or Yeti.

There's a TLD KTM Team and there's a SRAM TLD Racing Team. I have a hunch Aaron Gwin is racing for TLD (using either of the above names) and they'll end up using a YT just cause Cam Zink (a TLD rider) has a stake in North American distribution.
