There's a team competition?

And a majority of the men who are racing are working a day job... Funny thing .. All these attempts to make everything equal haven't brought up the participation levels... Payouts are the same, yet the number of female racers hasn't changed dramatically... ... more »

Personally, I'm not a fan of conversion kits... Ran one once.. Ended up scraping the strip first time I had to remove the tire... The tire had glued itself to the strip and the strip wasn't salvageable... Being that you are starting with a decent rim, ... more »

But, marketing worth doesn't always translate to cash to fund teams...

Does Atherton bikes have enough money to support a second team? I'm not sure about that...

That would mean Rachel's retirement and Tahnee leaving the family team...not sure if both of those are happening..

I thought I saw a pic of Cole on a Santa Cruz at the US Open... Edit.. Found it over on PB in their Bikes from the US Open post..

Damn... They are getting skewered... My only real gripe on this whole climate strike is that they are pushing it on the backs of kids... I know every 13 year old is suddenly an expert on climate change and not simply regurgitating whatever they've been ... more »

The downside is that our society has become one based on cheap disposable goods ... China is the leading producer and the US is the leading consumer.. Even with bikes.. You can buy a cheap bike at a department store and when something breaks, fixing ... more »

An even bigger irony is when you see the amount of trash left behind after some of these protesters leave...

I worked at Marzocchi during the Shiver days... So many people claimed the fork was too flexy... But, I have never ridden a more forgiving fork... Especially in the rock gardens... Every other 2 wheeled motor sport has realized that stiffer isn't necessarily ... more »

It will be interesting to watch her progress with faster competition to push her...

With Valli Holl moving up, I would guess her as 1 of those spots unless she stays on a separate YT deal..

I'm pretty sure Specialized doesn't have a large bank of servers for their website.. And the We shut down our website for the climate strike message would indicate that the servers would still be online...

Does shutting down a website for a day really change anything? Are they shutting down the head office and shipping warehouses too? No cars driving in, no trucks picking up orders... Sorry, but shutting down the website for a day sounds like marketing ... more »

I go through this every Supercross season... On Saturday evening, I stop looking at my phone so I can get home from work, eat dinner, and then start watching the race that is recording.. FB and the internet will still be there a few hours later...

But, in today's world, most people want the results RIGHT NOW! Some people don't seem to be happy unless their favorite site has results up before the end of the race...

I thought Transition said last year during the rumors that they are signed through 2020... but, I could be mistaken..

Elliot is the guy I watch the most on the team right now... They've got some solid riders with great marketing potential, even without top finishes... In the social media age, a good personality will get more attention than finishes.. They are putting ... more »
