Do you want to help prop up a bunch of kooks who seem determined to control the sport at all costs? If so, race only affiliated races and pay your fees. Otherwise, keep doing what you do. Mountainbiking doesn't NEED the UCI. Mountain-bike organisations ... more »

I can't sign that petition with a clear conscience. Not when it says: "Without question you are intelligent men and women."

Nah, they're thickos. Corrupt ones at that.

Ben Cory has to be one of the most under-rated Aussie riders ever.

Has Rennie finally given it away?

The GT IT1 was basically a URT with a gearbox at the pivot point, the zerode is a completely different kettle of fish.

*EDIT* actually, WRONG. Not a URT. Still very different though *EDIT*

But yeah, they both have gearboxes. So did the Lahar, another kickass Kiwi design.

Yeah, because cross-country eliminator events are REALLY BIG outside of Europe. Not.

FFS. When's the industry going to realise the only way to go is to burn the UCI and go do it themselves?

Added a comment about feature Gloves, Body Protection Required at La Bresse 8/6/2011 12:27 PM
C50_dug

Mountain Bike New Zealand just amended their armor rules. Because Kiwis don't like wearing gloves... well, a lot of the fast ones don't.

Feedback has generally been that some riders prefer to ride without gloves, as they do in World Cup rounds and at the World Champs, from a safety perspective neck, elbow and knee protection offer significantly more protection than a thin pair of gloves, gloves may in some cases increase the likelihood of injury, particularly if they become slippery, etc, etc.

This single requirement regarding gloves for DH events has caused the most controversy for riders and officiating Commissaires in the last 2 years.

I'm in the same boat, his initial run was the best yet they gave Zink the win by virtue of a front flip? Lame.

I hope they tweak PMB in a MAJOR way before next year, the last thing downhill needs is a course with dropper posts and semi slicks.
