This seems to be getting more and more common. In Dorset, Vermont there was high test fishing line strung across the trail at neck height a few weeks ago. Pretty shitty that its getting to this point.

Shimano, Fox, Schwalbe vs Sram, RockShox and Vittoria? Anneke on her own stuff and the rest of the GT team running a similar kit to Martin?

Nice vid!
I 'bent' a lot of Continentals and I'm just a hack.

Make that an island of 4. I have short little stubs for fingers and I have to run the levers pretty close to the bar or my fingers barely reach. The negative to that is the levers usually bottom out on my knuckles before full pad engagement. It's quite ... more »

First Rides for Yoann? Are either rider using Super Gravity tires or just the Snakeskins?
I'd love to see a Nobby NIC Super Gravity soon

The bike has a Sram derailleur, but they don't list Sram as a sponsor. Any insight into how that works out? Is it part of the YT deal? From the YT Mob page "The race bike setup differs only slightly from the stock bike: Grips, brakes and tires come from ... more »

I get the clue. Heisenberg isn't really dead, he funding Gwin's move to KTM/Audi/Redbull/Rocky Mountain. Or is it YT, or is it Trek, or is it Specialized? Either way, Whiteley is Heisenberg and Finkle is Einhorn.

She's not technically racing anymore, but Micayla Gatto is riding for Diamondback now. Any word on the Tahnee Seagrave pic a bunch of pages back? New team, new bike...?

I saw a hardtail and a bunch of fat bikes raced during a few enduro races I was in last season. Since they were technically raced during an enduro race, would they fall into the enduro race bike category also? Didn't Tomac race DH with a drop bar back ... more »

If he goes to Specialized, is he going to keep Maxxis and Fox? And after all that effort getting the fit of the new Yeti jersey just right. Not too loose, but not too tight
