Bummer. He should not be back on the bike this season with a brain bleed. No two ways about it.

You realize there is a chance they might actually like what they are doing out there with you? Just like, say, if you have a girlfriend who rides and enjoys it just as much. Tucker gets super pumped at the site of a helmet. Like starts spazzing out running ... more »

What does a Wildrockr2 ripoff that weighs sub 900g say to michelin: "I drink YOUR milkshake. I drink it UP!!!"

Man. The few actual riding shots that are in this shows just how much of a beast Stevie was at speed. I just wish TGR/Anthill would put the real legends on film, uncut, a little longer. Put simply, SHOW THEM RIDING MORE.

I still want more one liners too... "yerrr doing it wrong", "get on the bike", "must be a rest day" are all funny but I know we can do better...

Good stuff boys. Keep it coming.

I have some friends coming to a race for the first time. They aren't sure how to properly heckle so I thought I'd inspire them. Post your favorite heckler video or line here. Best line or video gets a six pack from me. (I'm not kidding)

Unreal. Angel crashes. Doesn't remember the crash and they start looking at his hand?! Obviously no idea how much more diagnostic stuff they did but sure looks like there wasn't much attention to something far bigger...

Seriously, someone needs to raise the concussion question as these events. Culturally, it has to get a bit more attention and understanding from everyone involved.

Your logic is a bit off here. Putting on a world cup is already incredibly expensive. The checks the athletes walk away with his hardly a reflection of the total cost to run such an event.

Two things

1) Though a neurologist would be ideal, any medical professional trained in post concussive management would work in this situation. The testing protocol Jonty was suggesting is widely used in a number of sports (including HIGH SCHOOL - where the checks are non existent) and far from expensive to implement. Once you have an objective baseline you don't need a specialist to say "yeah, you need to go to the hospital, your tests are way off".

2) The costs of whatever program is decided, spread over all athletes and teams wouldn't be material.

Again, I'm not sure you understand the importance of this problem. I, unfortunately, live it more days than I care to admit.

I'm with Oz_Taylor. Not saying either will win but Mik and Troy can both lay power down when they need to. Troy seems to always be fit. Mik waivers with the years but has the potential to be one of the most fit athletes in the sport.

Gonna have to call you out on that one. Mik is one of the most powerful guys on the circuit...2nd at Pietermaritzburg in 2014 proves that. Brosnan has shown he's not lacking in power...1st in Fort William 2014 with the infamous 'motorway' section.

Jonty Neethling nailing it. There are way too many un-diagnosed concussions out there. Its the rest of your life you are playing with. UCI wants to ban disc brakes from road racing but won't bring a neurologist to the races? Sounds about par for the course for the most ass backwards organization in sports.
