And, not to mention that Martin Maes actually started racing the EWS on flats, and was producing some ridiculous results in the process...year of the Young Guns and Rise of A Legend so far though. Good to see Richie open the season where he left off, and rad to see Martin right where he should be.

Side Note: What's the age spread between Nico and Richie/Martin?! (It's gotta be pushing 20 at least - impressive regardless, considering he's been fighting injury the past couple of seasons)

Well he said he felt better racing on flats, so I guess you could say that it's not really an achievement. He rode what he felt gave him an advantage. Pedaling 50 kms on flat pedals in a day is nothing to write home about, for grinding up fireroads there is little difference between flats and...more

Long manuals. Like, oh-I'm-still-doing-this long; full-speed, down a steep hill (dirt or paved), just hanging off the back.

It's the new "forum link". The main design feature is to stir up hype around The Big S's new STACKED roster for 2016, and get people all stoked up for racing during the mid-winter lull that seems to suck the life out of internet content for MTB. Said ... more »

Yes. After having a conversation with a former WC XC pro this summer (and not a high-up one), I can confirm that XC is in fact, where the money is. Start pedaling everyone.

Also, Carl is one of the raddest dudes in MTB, this MTBCribs is just a highlight reel as to why. That SSWC win, on that bike, is pure madness.

Enduro lacks the distinct obviousness of steroid abuse and man-love that the WWE has, as well as the showmanship. I feel like, "FEST Series is the WWE of MTB" might a little more appropriate based on the larger-than-life stunts and characters, as well as insane party antics.
