Mick Hannah, while being interviewed on WynTV, just mentioned that Wyn was going to retire (as per Wyn's brother Eddie). It looks like Wyn is going to go full enduro next season, I reckon. Which team, though?

Nice. I would've thought Intense would have won a couple considering many of the other manufacturers used their bikes back in the day.

Added reply in a thread Let's Nerd out on World Champs History 9/7/2017 10:24 PM

I'm certainly interested to find out which bike (or manufacturer) has had the most World Championships.

It appears Sam Hill is quitting DH for good and will go full enduro.

The Finn Iles to Devinci rumor was also on the 2017 Racing Rumors thread, along with Bulldog leaving GT. Not sure if both rumors happen this time, though.

Article on PB published saying there is an 80% certainty that Devinci is coming back to World Cup DH.

Any info for other countries? I hope our dedicated mtb journalists are bugging the UCI on what the plans are for the rest of the world.

Anybody know whose contracts are ending in 2018?

Added reply in a thread Cecile Ravanel to Race Val di Sole World Cup DH 8/26/2017 5:05 AM

She qualified 9th and finished 10th. Considering she's on a bike she barely has any mileage on, not to mention no full factory support for this race, I'd say it's a great result for a 1st timer.

Curious question: Can you wear the rainbow jersey on the EWS?

For a prototype, they certainly spared no expense and went straight to carbon.

His dad was also in intensive care at the time, a small detail that, when put in perspective, brings that World Champs win added luster.

Would this be a compelling choice over a substantially cheaper yet slightly narrower and slightly heavier aluminum rim like the Stan's ZTR Flow Mk 3?

Really good value for money, too! Commencal just came out with the Supreme SX, though: http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/press-release/Introducing-the-Commencal-Supreme-SX,1711

How much does the Descendant carbon crank weigh? Can't seem to see any word on it on the article.

Jure Zabjek (was in the hot seat for a while, finished 12th) could use a 29er. Claudio thought he was riding a 26.

Congrats, Jure! Best finish yet at a World Cup!

The first ever win at a UCI DH WC race for a 29er has finally happened. Let's see how it goes in Leogang.
