because the world cup is too far away and we still like to compare wheel sizes. http://www.vitalmtb.com/features/27-5-vs-29er-Danny-Harts-Mondraker-Summum,1790

Finn Iles wins juniors with a 4:40 pretty gnarly considering Gee's 4:39 in seeding

don't know for sure, but i'd think it's just a wreckoning. here's a new pic from the feature launching soon from seeding

Port Angeles Seeding Results. Strobel fastest and we're pretty sure he's on a 29er just because he likes it.

practice times from today - danny and gee up there, but greg and marcelo not on 29ers and don't seem like they're much off the pace than they may normally be?

SO. ROUGH! interesting to hear about new section for world cup and w/o beating the extremely dead horse, i can't wait to see how splits work out between "alternative" wheel sizes, especially on the motorway. #cathrovsclaudioin2017
