Phil Atwill better win this thing by like an hour since it's so easy.

Who is Phill Atwill? Can't say I've ever heard of him. Is he consistently a top 10 guy?

to be fair fair, the last 10-15 riders would have crushed that had they had the same conditions

it sucks when weather decides the race. i find it hard to believe given the huge cost to the teams and sponsors of putting on this event it's better to run the main or allow it to finish in insane weather. run it earlier if weather is looking crazy or push it back a few hours. it's not like...more

Top qualifying result for rookie and privateer Keegan Wright 31st inside some big names, good hunting boi for the finals!

Liked a comment on the item Loic Bruni's Specialized Demo 4/28/2017 6:58 AM

Don't misunderstand why Loic doesn't like the 29'er. Yes faster is faster, but he is coming from the standpoint of "why go faster"? If it is an advantage now, but then everyone adopts the wheel size, it just means that everyone would then just be going even faster - which is hard to fathom. To see the speed in...more

@Oz_Taylor not true! The Padloc can go on any bar. The part from Park Tools is only $15 and my shop bought it and had it in shop 2 days after I requested it. It slides right into the existing Park Tool bar cutting jig. Takes 5 minutes to cut the bar down max. Even the first...more

From what Hill has said, and what I know of his riding, I think he probably likes EWS tracks more than what has been happening with WC in recent years. He's a wizard when it comes to finding lines in natural terrain and what some would consider true ... more »

The pattern is available, but the GRP40 rubber isn't out yet. Your only choice at the moment is 65/55 in 27.5, which is a bit hard even for a mud tire on the WC.

I pretty much always prefer a full-face... my backpack has a helmet carrier, so I just strap it on there for long climbs as I am not worried about crashing on my head while climbing. DH casings + Full Face is the only way to "enduro"

I'm so excited to see what Aron does on the Tues with it's higher suspension progressivity as opposed to the Spec. Total domination may be boring to some people. But not me.

... From Angel's instagram, managed to download a larger res version from the photographer's Facebook page. https://www.instagram.com/p/BBN79sDSMrl/ So, definitely on the same team as Gwin. Hard to tell, but the rear end doesn't look like current YT.

Hmm, would 'cables coming out of the seat tube' be easy to spot in video of the race? That seems like the only thing that could exonerate her.

While the Norco and new Cube both 'look like a session'.... Greg Williamson's instagram shot ( YT Tues ) combined with Gwin's Alpinestars posts point to a new M. Whiteley team on YT bikes. Whiteley also has strong ties to VW/Audi.
