On reading it again, I agree with your interpretation. That is effectively what is written. Pretty big change indeed! The nice thing about it as you pointed out is that top riders who slide down the rankings due to injury can come back to racing mid-season ... more »

Reply to Do Clipless Pedals Need a New Name? 10/16/2017 3:01 AM

The flamboyant French call them "pedales automatiques", while the pragmatic Germans refer to them as "Klickpedale". Both seem better than giving them a name that is the actual description of the exact opposite of what they are LOL. Does anybody know ... more »

New thread 2017 Rampage Bikes 10/4/2017 5:15 AM
