Reply to EWS Doping Thread Disappearance 11/26/2018 4:02 PM

I understand your point and do see the middle ground here. My reference to old vs new doping was born from some comments Ive seen in the coverage of this situation and general conversations Ive had with casual cycling and non-cycling friends regarding ... more »

Interesting how some people are acting as though if they are not in dark back alleys with needles, blood bags and a dr w/ an Italian last name ... it must not be doping....or at least it requires a different punishment. Seems to me that the needle and ... more »

Not sure about this, even the "normal" ingredients list has stuff on it that I would question putting in my body daily if I was a pro athlete at their levels - artificial colors and flavors. Maybe that's just me. Considering that supplement photo (wow!) ... more »

So before an unnamed post above was edited, I thought it mentioned a French rider on a US team who's parents were the promotors(?) of the French EWS round. The manager of said team is supposedly a key source of the rumors. So....who is the rider and ... more »

Admins need to start putting people on a time-out, wearing the dunce hat, and facing the wall in the corner of the room for posts that have non-racing rumor content.

Please move this discussion to the "pedaling sucks" forum. This one is for team rumors and not uphill alpine sking.

If Gwin is off YT, I certainly would not assume YT needs to "save face". There are a lot of different logical reasons why that could happen and actually be the SMARTER move for YT. If Gwin is asking for some crazy $...it's a different situation than ... more »

Reply to Cush Core technique. Why the complaints? 9/13/2018 5:03 PM

Specific tire/rim combos make it easier or harder. One trick I use if installing on a wheel with a tire already on (or a particularly stubborn tire): just remove the bead from one side of the wheel and leave the other 1/2 of the tire installed against ... more »

What is that they say? "Where there is smoke...there is probably fire" Are you saying that someone cant enjoy a little relaxation and still be a focused, clear-minded, stand-up person? Im not sure why you are inferring those things are mutually exclusive? ... more »

Sounded like a lot of chatter at CWX about team transfers. Here are a few stab in the dark thoughts: -Gotta figure Thomas Estaque bumped to Commencal Valnord or other top team. -Scott picks up a heavy hitter and young gun for WC results on the new bike ... more »

Reply to Laguna Beach Trails: Riders vs. Rangers 6/22/2018 2:48 PM

You guys have it good. The rangers in Marin are now using strategically placed cellular enabled cameras: Locate em at the start of a no-bikes or questionable trail w/o splits, rider goes by, photo taken & sent via MMS to ranger, ranger blasts over ... more »

Interesting how there is so much focus on the anti doping part of this. hummmmm

Reply to The Mystery of the Bead Monster 6/19/2018 8:49 AM

Minnaar? Bruce Klein (in Fontana)? Dean Lucas(at ft bill)? Been hearing some chatter and there seems to be some smoke but maybe some journalists could do some digging. Clearly a touchy topic on several levels...

What's the over/under on Minnaar not blowing up a tire (or a wheel)?

Strong bench game. At very least because no workshop bench is complete w/o a volcano. Wonder what could be in that orange bucket!?!?!

Reply to 2018 Racing Rumors 2/14/2018 11:37 AM

Is it just me or does it seem like outside of the big 3-5 teams, there were some major sponsorship pullouts from SRAM & Shimano and other large brands that opened the door for smaller brands to jump in this year? This is good to see, but leaves me ... more »

Geoff Kabush to Yeti. Colorado rumble going down w/ BL55's alchemy team just down the street. Think Kabush's champagne spray can hit Denver from Golden? Could you then say Kabash gave Lopes a Golden shower? Sounds reasonable to me.
