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.

Build a bike park near Manila; hiring consultants to come up with a viable business model, for it to be self-sustaining. It should come with DH and XC WC-level tracks, and maybe an indoor pump track. Build a foundation for youth development with the ... more »

Hello from the Philippines! Two questions, if you don't mind : 1) Over the years, which riders have the weirdest quirks, superstitions, or pre-race rituals have you ever seen? 2) Being in the industry for so long, do you think there is enough of a push ... more »

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.

Jared Graves on SRAM is also a surprise to me, TBH.

Added reply in a thread 2016 Racing Rumours 12/14/2015 1:45 AM

I wonder if Jared came in with enough time to provide rider input on the design of the all-new 2016 Enduro. Or will the first couple of races be the testbed for a prototype (a la Dan Atherton and the most recent Sanction)?

A few requests: I really wish GT would ship more full suspension alloy bikes to my country (the Philippines). There are literally just two of us on a Sanction around here. The demand is definitely there, the Reign is selling like hotcakes in my neck

True. Marc Beaumont is the first rider to ever win a World Cup on a DH bike with a carbon frame. And on Val Di Sole, no less. He's probably not as fit as a lot of the top guys out there atm but this off-season should take care of that. He will bring ... more »

So stoked to see that Maes stays! That DH team will have lots of great moments for sure! Glad to see the rumors come true.

I would agree with the Iron Horse Sunday. Definitely my favorite.

From a looks perspective, I think the current Pivot Phoenix is the best looking DH bike I have ever seen. ... more »

The price difference here in asia is a bit wider with the likes of the Fox 36 and the RS Pike. The new Durolux is around US340 while a Pike is US$640. The Fox 36 is at a staggering US$870. Over here, the Durolux is definitely a compelling choice for AM/Enduro. And it's also available in 26" around here.
