He probably is the split marker. It's not uncommon for the split times to be recorded manually be someone pushing a button. To be fair though, given where he's standing and the pace riders are going I highly doubt he'd even register in Loic's line of ... more »

You mentioned in your previous post that your current setup feels great and is well balanced for flat cornering, which is fine, but it's going to mean a bit of a compromise on steep terrain when your weight shift significantly forward. I'll go out on ... more »

This one never made it to Pit-Bits but here's a shot of Aaron Gwin's personal settings

A couple things to add in no particular order some relevant some maybe not: 'wide open' does not mean no damping, it just means the least restrictive end of whatever damping range is available in your fork/shock. If you really want to know what wide ... more »

Maybe if there were a track that required constant accelerations the added weight might be detrimental, but that doesn't really describe a modern DH track. The same could be said about 29 inch wheels, but the fact that almost everyone has made the move ... more »

I’ve been told that ‘ultimate’ now indicates the top tier of any product line (similar to what has been used for the Guide brakes). It’s my understanding that second and third tier models will also follow a more standardized category name. The past RC, ... more »

Kaos raced a 29er most of last season, not sure if they’ve officially released it though.

He’s definitely going to need bigger Fox pants

If Vergier ends up leaving I’d assume it would be for a better offer. Salaries for solid top-ten riders are pretty substantial right now, and the Syndicate has three of them (each one a podium favorite). It might not be possible to keep them together ... more »

Canada could be up ther too. Jesse, Remi, Mckay. A lot can change a whole season from now, but if I were a betting man I’d give France the edge, with US and Canada battling it out close behind. Aussies a wild card. Looking forward to seeing what sort ... more »

UCI rules state both wheels have to be the same size, and wide-angle camera lenses distort size/distance especially up close and at the corners of the frame (this is how some action shots can make a bike look like it is running a 20/40" combo, or one

Cheers man, thanks. A few of the media squids had the same impression with a few kits and branding. Fox really seems to have it sorted out with bright blocks of colors and large, bold logos and graphics that are instantly recognizable. A few others are ... more »

I was told it's the Alta bike/ski/board shop in Queenstown (they rent Mondraker DH bikes) , but can't confirm if that is true or not.

All the team gear looks pretty similar, but Brooke is actually the only guy in Alpinestars kit (which looks a lot like the Dainese kit they were in last few years). Jones had been wearing 100% at some pre-season event but he and Brage are both now in ... more »
