Am I the only one that has these photos showing up as thumbnails? They look sick under my magnifying glass.

The people want Sven on the podcast, and the people want it to be a series of episodes as he surely has way too many good stories to share, wouldn't fit in an hour!

I got confused too, it's actually the rank of the rider for the entire weekend based on points, so its the "place" counting qualies+finals which is why gwin and brosnan have high places despite poor finals results

Not sure, it would have been unfair for Gwin to lose the entire championship due to rain had the points been closer.

Well, considering the organizers had to release GPS data to validate that Richie did indeed destroy everyone, and there has been tons of footage of him overtaking Oton, it didn't exactly go unnoticed!

Hopefully that Neuron is foreshadowing updates to the spectral 29 (super short chainstay), but both are way too XC currently, if Canyon lengthens and slackens them out up front they would have some sweet trail bikes.

I love riding with 2-3 others around my level, problem is more and more i find those guys invite some less fit or less fast guys, which becomes pretty annoying just because you end up riding less in one outing, and there is always one guy who needs to ... more »

The top 3 in finals really moved like frikking ninjas, you can see it in Brosnan there, scrubbing and angling the bike around all the drops... So sick.

Prepare your shit before race day, most races are a single or 2 days event: have everything (clothes/food/bars) packed and compartementalised before the race day. Clean, lube and check pressures before leaving your house. Never drastically change any ... more »

France: only seen 1 and it was a test bike from a shop (stumpjumper 6fattie), but a local kid raced it in the first enduro race of the year and placed really well on it. As mentioned in a previous topic: we are slowly getting overrun with E-bikes however... ... more »

So good! This is the next "RAW" format that is going to be copied to death in a year or two. They need to setup a kickstarter so we can fund their travel to the rest of the world cup!

Also, by having a whistler every 10-20s of the track the marshals can identify if and where a rider crashed more easily to help them or stop the race.
