some U.S. riders could have been invited - my comment implied they weren't. i'm not sure how it all works, but it's not an open race where anyone can try to compete.

plenty of U.S. racers would go if invited.

so loud, so funny, but i have a question, as i'm no scientition (simpsons quote). just because something is labeled "52a" durometer doesn't tell us much about the rubber's performance. 52a durometer slow-rebound rubber isn't the same as 52a fast-rebound rubber. they're equally 52a on the "hardness" scale, but do different things performance-wise, right? is the duro number that important on its own? your Mountain Cycle from 1999 got 6 inches of travel, so it prob works just like your 2014 Felt with 6 inches of travel since they have the same travel number on a sticker.

it doesn't look like maxxis is publishing durometer numbers anymore...just "soft" "medium" and "hard" within the descriptions of each 3C build. i've added some compound descriptions to the article and have reached out to see if they'll provide specific durometers. stay tuned!
