Just one. It's a Session 4

For the entire trail it's about 12k top to bottom with an elevation difference of 2000ft. The trail rolls a bit in places and has about 800ft of total climbing so you end up with 2800 ft of total descending.
That's the 'GoPro effect'
Fantastic, though I can't make any comparison to other coil options as I've previously only used an air shock. I've never been one for climbing switches so instead mine alternates between two different DH settings. Much has been made of the dual valve for climbing/descending prowess but where I appreciated it most was in setup. It can be run with identical settings on each and then changes can be made to one valve at a time making it easy to toggle back and forth instantly to feel the difference.
Nothing special, standard DT 240

I've been doing some of that on my own but not as part of an official test at this point (have a look at Push's IG or FB page to see a bit of what I've been up to). Without comparing it to another coil option I can't really speak to any of the other claims that have been made, but performance wise it is a significant improvement from the stock Vivid Air.

No need that I could find. The bars have a rough, hi-friction finish at the center similar to what you'll find on many other carbon bars. Just make sure all the fork, bar, and stem surfaces are clean prior to installation, torque the bolts evenly, and you should be good to go.

It's not the UCI's fault that national federations or local laws dictate the use 'back protection,' without the existence of a universal standard that can be applied, making these sort of rules entirely unenforceable. Without the latter riders are free to interpret the requirement however they like and it becomes more of a hollow rule and a nuisance rather than a legitimate safety requirement. People love to give the UCI shit for having too many technical regulations but this is precisely the sort of situation all those rules/regs are designed to avoid.

He made it clear in our conversation that he wasn't complaining, that's he agrees it's fully within the rules, but that it is a challenge the EWS is still working to address. No one wants a race calendar that effectively requires attending every venue twice to be competitive so they are putting it out in the open before it becomes a bigger problem. Justin was by no means the only guy a bit discouraged by stage 2, especially watching the lines guys were taking in 'blind' practice. He actually got passed in the practice run and Jerome lost 25 secs.
Were any women hanging out in the pits at 7pm after the media recon, on a day with no training and nothing for them to do? We always cover women's racing, but we can't interview people who aren't around.

Every damn time I've seen one of those bottles this weekend! Glad it's not just me
This test was done with a medium cage SRAM XO
Now that the whip-off's gone corporate, maybe it's time for 'chainless-timed-training-world-champs' in Switzerland? Care to lend us some beer money, Gordo?
