looks like that section of the frame in front of the rear wheel is actually closed off. interesting move there. mud protection?

looks slick, but seems like you'd be guaranteed mud/dirt all over the threads of that CO2 cartridge. i also wonder whether there's any flexibility in this system for some of the things i used to put in my saddlebag, especially small bits like patches and a spare chain link.

Pinkbike scoped out the custom link that Gwin/Brosnan have been running: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/aaron-gwins-troy-brosnan-specialized-demo-prototype.html Basically, the WC pros wanted slightly more progression in the suspension, so Big S CNC'd up some custom links.

Looks a lot more like the Sunn DH frame of a couple years ago, to me.

Obviously not an exact match, but the Canfield is a short dual-link design and this looks like a high single pivot with a pull-to-push linkage, a la the Sunn. (I know pull-to-push ... more »

Looks like whatever Brosnan's got going on back there, Gwin's got it too. I thought I was imagining it when I first looked at this shot but now I'm more convinced. https://instagram.com/p/0LHTxMFSpm/

Not the current world champ, and not technically dirt jumps, but a 3x former world champ airing it out. Close enough?

So, what happens now? I have to assume that at least one or two people at the UCI are intelligent enough to realize that preventing the Syndicate from registering would be a bad decision. Is there some sort of appeal process?

Neko/Scott publicly confirmed. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/gstaad-scott-welcomes-neko-mulally-2015.html EDIT: The video somebody mentioned is public now too.

Added reply in a thread Do you think a World Cup DH career debut like Gwin's is possible anymore? 12/30/2014 11:19 AM

I want to say yes, but my perception was that the top of the game changed after Gwin made everybody look silly for a season. Seems like the serious factor got turned up another notch (in terms of training, diet, etc). It's not impossible that somebody ... more »

i love all the shots of hikers pretending to be totally unfazed by the riding going on around them. unintentional comedy gold.

great video, though. danny continues to make everything look too easy.

Somehow, even the biggest drops of Rampage still look smaller than the Jah Drop (no offense to the Rampage riders, obviously). Probably just the sheer exposure of it -- absolutely nothing in between the edge and the ground. Or maybe it's that pogo stick Bender's riding.

We need more name captions like that during the regular season.

no kidding w/ the french flags. interesting how the UK seems to have such a high concentration of winning male downhill riders while france dominates the men's side of enduro racing. perhaps something about the local terrain, or the respective grassroots scenes? just speculating here, and it may of course be nothing more than a peculiar/temporary trend, but it makes me curious.

After watching this slideshow I can't help but question why so many people get their panties in a bunch over the wooden features. All I see is people talking about "natural" this or "natural" that when they complain about the wood features. But can someone then...more
