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.

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?

It looks like the guys in blue are ignoring him, but they are actually quite a ways away farther down the stairs and across the platform. There's a reverse angle floating around that gives a bit more perspective but I'm not posting it as it's just gratuitous.

I'm not sure a wheel set exists that would have survived that impact. When was the last time you saw someone almost rip their fork out through the front of the head tube? https://goo.gl/GwWa9p and https://goo.gl/sn6S7C

Might not be carbon but it definitely doesn't look stock either. Different cable routing, no machining behind the chainring, and there should be an obvious weld where that Deity sticker is.

Santa Cruz are about the best in the biz, but look closely and you get an idea of how much would need to be done if this was on the outside before it was consumer ready. Carbon just don't pop out of the mold looking smooth and sexy. http://www.bikerumor.com/2014/06/25/bike-porn-santa-cruz-nomad-carbon-cutaway/

What Sideshow said. If you ever get to see a carbon frame fresh out of the mold it's not much of a looker. There's a great deal of filing, filling, and sanding left to be done to achieve the finished look. Even this one's been cleaned up quite a bit.
