I'm not sure how increasing the wheels size suddenly changes the current tracks to be flatter or less rough? I doubt you'll see anyone removing the rocks from Val di Sole or rerouting the final pitch of the Andorra track any time soon. There definitely ... more »

More likely than not, those aren't the tires that are on the bike when Gee rides it. No reason to have Steve riding on something they may not want seen just yet.

I'm not so sure about the brief flat tire epidemic at the start of 2014 being the result of 275 wheels. Recall the first two rounds were South Africa and Cairns where riders where often opting for lighter casing tires and then quite a few flats early ... more »

Rewind 3 years or so and the same things were being said about those awful 275 DH bikes that no one wants to ride... I guess for anyone who stills enjoys taking the piss out of enduro racing as well as 29ers, you can thank those guys for refining the ... more »

He qualified for MSA in 2007 on a version of that bike, first 29er to race a WC. It definitely had Nevegals though I'm not sure they even had DH casings at the time. I believe he was running a Fox 40 with some file work done to the crown to make the ... more »

Almost all the factories in Asia have a 'house brand' that they use to show off their manufacturing capabilities to prospective customers. Those with less money to invest in prototypes, tooling, moulds, etc often rebadge the factory's ODM samples as ... more »

Qualis going on now, looks like Brannigan is first casualty of the day and might be sitting this one out on Sunday (#25, unprotected). 79th at the moment with several fast guys to go.

I chopped the front off an old D2. I find it much more bearable in 90 degree heat while still offering a lot more coverage than a standard all-mountain helmet. Since I can also fit a full sized DSLR camera to my eye in this helmet I think I might be

You know that's fake, right?

Reply to 2016 Racing Rumours 2/4/2016 6:14 AM

Maybe there was a big brand rumored to be shopping for a DH team and is now rumored to be waiting until next season

Not a team rumor, but what do you make of the Loic's test bike?
