Wow, Bruni showing that he has the best mental game in the business! Impressive after a very un-super year for him so far. Daprela looks like he is ready to take over the French domination, scary fast for a first-year elite! Good to see Gwin back in touch.

Loïc over the stumps was bananas. For anyone who doesn’t speak French, the quote from the dude immediately following is: ‘Go bring a bottle of champagne to Öhlins. And say thank you. Motherfu....’

What did you think of the size of that bike Brian? I haven't ridden a bike with a reach that short in over a decade! I find bikes with 500mm+ reach measurements much more fun and faster. The longer reach enables me to hinge like Rennie and Gwin and gives me a bigger sweet spot with all my weight on my pedals.

Oh, and how fun is that old track?!

Yes, I rode it yesterday and I had forgotten how gnarly the Deer Valley NCS track was!

Thanks for the good memories. Makes me want to do a road trip. Those drops were gnarly... I remember having to choose a spot to land between the rocks in the landing. That was a good time.

At the World Cup they had duel back then. The track started separate like a dual slalom but then merged for a head to head battle. I recall Cedric Gracia putting a sweet pass on Brian Lopes for the win at the WC there.

What was the dual racing that was going on? Did they also do 4x too back then? Why are those not happening these days? I just got into mountain biking 4 years ago, so I missed out on all of this.

Man that trail was so fun! True story- as a 16yr old jr DH shredder back in the day I helped build the course with HB & Chad Cheney. I shaped all the jumps and drops and was the guinea pig jumping everything! It was so cool to see all of the famous WC guys...more

So awesome to see that track open again! It was also used for a few NORBA National races. A few years ago with Greg Minnaar I was talking about how fun that track was and he agreed, said it was one of his favorites. It had everything, high speed, steeps and tech!

I realize I'm getting old but I rode the NCS track at Deer Valley yesterday and it blows me away how we attacked those tracks on 26" wheeled bikes that were way too short for us.

Stoked Joey still has support. Super good guy and incredibly fast, but somehow still under most people's radar? I hope he gets some good international results if he ventures out to some different events.

I love my Onyx hubs. Silent, they seem to coast faster than any other hub I have tried and the engagement is amazing. You really notice the engagement on technical climbs, way more control and confidence.

So good. Hopefully this brings on a new generation of silent hubs.

Sugar Wheelworks here in Portland laced up a set of wheels for me 2 years ago with Derby 35 Carbon rims and Onyx hubs. I couldn't be happier with a set of wheels. I will never go back to a loud freehub, ever, and instant engagement is a treat.

How about same tyres, say the Assegai exo+, but with variations on PSI (e.g F20 R24/ F25 R30/ F30 R36)

Could even try with/without Cushcore to test their claim of better rolling efficiency ?
