Reply to Sam Hill Drops Andorra World Cup To Focus on EWS 8/26/2016 8:14 PM

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 »

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"

... 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.

That would jive well with the 'un nouveau roi' Palmer-style crown drawing that someone posted.... hard to imagine that Intense has the funds for Loic and the level of support he's used to though..... Palmer wore that crown when he was on Specialized, ... more »

Wild guess... Gwin to YT? They have EWS and Freeride, but no DH racers. They want to validate the Tues as a race bike and could probably use an extra foothold in the US. While Gwin was at Interbike renewing his other contracts, he plugged Zink's movie ... more »

Reply to How to fix Red Bull Rampage...IMO 10/22/2015 12:51 PM

Spot on! Thank you for writing that SSpomer. Doing well at Rampage is about exposure and marketability to sponsors. Rampage is obviously high up on the gnar scale, but the people implying that EWS/WC racing aren't just as risky are splitting some pretty ... more »

Enduro Evo, hands down. More travel and better geometry will put a lot bigger smile on your face than a bit of carbon.

I disagree with his NOT for Sam Hill.... 11th is pretty darn good after tearing your shoulder apart and sitting out for the better part of two seasons. When you look at the split times, Sam was 4th on the top section ( the most steep/techy ) of the track. ... more »

Excellent idea! Creative lines, speed, style, flow, and amplitude... all of those things are what makes me stoked on MTB.

Maybe it's the perspective of the panorama, but those looks like some seriously man-size stunts for a public park! Extremely jealous!

Graves has so much flow and style... smooth!

So great! This would be a dream come true. I'll pre-order a pass right now.
