So pumped for Troy, he's been so consistent in the last few years, it must have been frustrating not to get any wins.

Fun fact of the day: Out of the 21 world cups between his 2 wins, Troy finished outside the Top 10 only 3 times. Of those 3 times, 2 were due to the skies opening up for the last few riders (Andorra 2016 & Lourdes 2017)

I think that all mountain bikers should look at wheel size, like golf clubs. There is now good match for different track conditions & fetures.

Great article Zach!
Although, when talking about the resurgence of data acquisition in modern times in our sport, I would bring up Remi Thirion in Andorra (2013) before talking about Loic. Manufacturing a new air can overnight because the data suggested more progression was needed in the shock is as close as we've been to Vouilloz levels of nerdyness in recent times.
Pretty much on the other end of the spectrum from Minnaar's garage bounce tests

Last year the riders complained about the man-made rock gardens, saying they were too easy in the dry, and pretty much a gamble in the wet. Well, it looks like the organisers listened to them and removed the rock gardens.
Careful what you wish for...
Either way I'm pumped for another week of epic slideshows and Vital RAWs!

Danny is pretty much the benchmark for the first split at the Fort, so I think it's safe to say that he didn't try too hard.
Epic coverage as always, you guys rock!

Good luck to all the privateers who spunked $7000-$10000 on a 27.5 last year and now have to do the same this year on a 29er to have a chance. Nice one SC!

Yeah I agree, saying 29 is faster doesn't make sense, it's about where they are faster. I can't imagine a 29er being a huge advantage on tight old school tracks like Maribor or Schladming. On fast, blown out tracks with wide corners, however, I think it definitely is an advantage to carry more speed and roll over the rocks and holes.

It's interesting to see that all 3 Syndicate riders are sticking to last year's main line through the gully section. It's a harder setup and longer in distance, but gives you better exit speed out of the turn, and less risk of tire/rim damage on the rocks.
Maybe, just maybe, they all qualified in the top 3 because they're ridiculously talented and hard-working, and know which lines to take.

I think it makes perfect sense for Loris, he's always been blazing fast, he was just a little on the loose side, which people often forget, because the French are almost all "slow iz smoozze, smoozze iz fast" type of riders. The wagon wheels most likely help him tame down his wild style
