This was answered in our intro article. Here's what Brandon replied to a similar comment --- We did back in 2015 but are definitely due to ride another one of those beauties. You'll be pleased to hear that we've got a Canfield Riot under our Squamish, BC tester right now.

gwin had done practice runs and went to the pits, he then left the pits w/ an agreed-upon pressure (30 and 29 maybe?). he took another run and went back to the pits saying it felt .5 psi low. i asked how he could feel .5 psi (i was skeptical too). he explained that things he'd hit on the track in previous runs that day felt different (the same rock at the top of the track is at the same altitude, so however that felt wouldn't change unless pressure was different and temp change was insignificant b/c of the timing between runs). they used the digital gauge and the pressure was .5 lower than the agreed-upon pressure. john hall is the one who brought this story up. could it have been luck? sure, but gwin is insanely in-tune with his bike set up and knows how altitude and temperatures affect components and materials.

don't forget, he's speaking of performance in "intermediate" DH conditions, not mud, not desert hardpack, not climbing...

crankworx brings world class events. they even have 4 venues this year. the DH is exciting and usually features some heavy hitters, but there's just something about how "official" the world cup is. a result at a world cup still mean more than any other series, regardless of track/organization. like you say, it seems like nothing will happen to change that. maybe 10 years from now, something will have shifted or crankworx (or some other entity) will have the clout to pull teams and riders away from the WC as a focus.

it's not just racers. i'll give away our future episode queue so you can all see where we're going. Episodes touch on a lot of what you're mentioning. These are already recorded and ready to rip - Stikman (Troy Lee), Bryson Martin Sr. (DVO), Duncan Riffle (SRAM), Jose Gonazalez (Trek R&D). I'm organizing future interviews as well with a variety of MTB personalities. we have such a rad group of people in our scene!

thanks for the feedback everyone. @drewnobi, i'll see about overcast...we're new to all of this. @ahab, i've done 4 other interviews (and am doing a 5th one today). they'll probably launch every week or so for now and will try to keep the momentum up throughout the season. it's been really fun doing these interviews.

what's with all the "money exchanging hands" conspiracy theories over an award? half of the awards we've given over the years aren't even for products of brands that even advertise here. rockshox didn't even know they received this award until i published this video the other day. as for metric stuff not being out not out yet? it's on plenty of bikes you can get right now. https://www.sram.com/stories/rockshox-metric-shocks-bikes
