Every clip of Bulldog looked like he was punishing that track for just simply existing.

This guy might be one of the most precious thing we have in our sport compared to others...

Also considering that for now only Greg is showing up at the very sharp end of things lately. Luca seems to struggle to find that little extra bit of magic

It's an intend shock! It's an air shock working in a similar way as the other but the architecture is different (the oil is separated I think)

But it did in the end, didn't it? Has anyone heard of crashes/close calls during the race run on that road gap? No sarcasm here, just genuine question.

When you hear the feedback from most racers (girls included), it looks like they are lovin' it and that it is refreshing to have a proper DH track... I mean at a moment, either you want a manicured man made course (boring for some) or you get a gnarly ... more »

He also quite invented the tires "cross mounting" during Monte Carlo rally. Basically putting 2 snow tires and 2 road tires but in diagonal (for ex: front left rear / right snow tires and front right / left rear road tires). The guy has some magic when

That's what I was about to say. I think beside Gwin and Palmer (and maybe few others), it's the other way around. The skills and strengths they have developped in DH has helped them getting up to speed quicker in MX. We are talking about people that ... more »

Sorry indeed regarding the watch it was completely off topic. Being also a watch enthusiast I just spotted that he was wearing what looks like a carbon Panerai Luminor. Nice but rather expensive watch

Once upon a time, hangers were not replaceable. Short story, they became replaceable to save the frame and all the ensuing work that came with straitening said part (that was part of your frame). That is their origin.

Thanks for the answer! Indeed, with that price tag, I'd rather replace the hanger!
I understand and do not question your statement, I did not have in mind that the whole overclutch feature could also help save the hanger but that makes sense now! Thanks

"What we learned was that while Overload will save your derailleur, it will not save your hanger." Isn't this the goal of a derailleur hanger in the first place ? I mean you should destroy the hanger before your derailleur (even if it is not always the case today with sturdier hangers out there)
Can't wait for more feedbacks on the AXS GX :-D
