A bit of banter from the BDS at Fort William and for anyone that was snoozing here is the link to the Vital track walk slideshow from the first world cup where Danny got called out for the bulk practice he does at Fort William every year. https://youtu.be/XzdT6jSCT-A

To be fair I did say overall and the seasons not over... But yeah I concede, I was banking on Bruni not being a hypocrite. The real question now is will any teams scramble to have a mullet bike ready for Fort William like after the Syndicate dominated ... more »

From the couple of Instagram stories I've seen and a quick google of the weather it looks like it could be good racing conditions. Purely internet speculation though

Someone at Scott is on a reverse mullet bike, I'm guessing Marine. I am genuinely surprised by the number of reverse mullet bikes. I always assumed the industry picked 27.5" because it was halfway between 26" and 29", therefore, is there another wheel ... more »

By the looks of it when you run one shock, it goes in the downtube. You've gotta hand it to Cannondale though, they certainly live outside the box. 2Stage had a DH bike back in the day that ran two shocks but with a completely different concept. They

So I was bang on when I said it was similar to what Danny was running. Danny's mechanic Dave Garland is the man behind Stendec. Seems to be one of the first complete telemetry setups available to the wider public. I'd love to see a data comparison between
