This is news I'm happy to read about. Needles is the man, and it's great to see that he'll still be involved in the sport doing what he does best: riding stylishly around the world.

{Regarding the angler dropper post} First idea seems reasonable, with a limit screw providing the "desired angle" at the top and bottom. The second, I have enough of a problem with the fore and aft position for my seat, forget about the whole ... more »

Many things to comment on, but I want to dredge it back up: how ridiculous is that new Norco going to be? Those lads are going to be charrrrrging on that thing. It's a Zerode G2 without a gearbox. I think the shake ups of riders is going to lead to some ... more »

In summation: Hi Speed Rebound needs to be fast, and Low Speed Rebound needs to be slow. But, adhere to the curb test, because the shocks have built in hi speed blow off. Yes?

Rupert's interview is one of the funnier ones to come out of team announcements in a while.

Awesome! Said no one... Maybe Aaron will finally shake the World Champ monkey off that year with a chainless run in which he also gets a flat, but still rides flat out. I'll concede this: If they cut a new track, IN THE WOODS, not in cow pasture with ... more »

Reply to Is straighter and faster really that bad for a World Cup track? 1/17/2017 2:53 PM

As heard from the B-Zone and in the pits: It's not so much that "fast and straight" is bad, it's that many tracks are being over-groomed and run down machine-built sections, instead of running more raw track designs. For example, Schladming had some ... more »

Strava is fun, I enjoy it. It is a useful training tool and a fun piece of evidence from the day. I do no know what the trail(s) in question are like, nor do I intend to travel to the location to find out (AND BECOME THE KOM!!!! MUAAHHAHAHAHAA). Blaming ... 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.
