I like seeing the multi-position chain-stay length. This simply makes a ton of sense for everyone. For the bike brands it's too expensive making different rear-ends for different sizes, but gives larger riders the chance extend things out back there. Hope we start seeing this more on the trail/enduro bikes.

agreed. every time we asked downhill racers in pro bike checks what they're most particular about, they say "cockpit setup" over anything else.

This is simply dumb. Life has nuance and you need to be able to accommodate it and be flexible. We all understand that these athletes are responsible for what goes in their bodies, but why doesn't everyone think there is this massive infrastructure for ... more »

Yikes... everyone likes a french line joke every once and a while but Richie has to know he can't make that joke anymore....

Any word on tire width? I feel like last year he was running 2.3 or something on the narrower side like that

That was one of the most exciting WCDH races I've watched in a long while. Gwin's wipeout was wild. Run after very exciting run and Peirron's run was NUTS. You could tell he was really on the hairy edge, full mach chicken, and then almost looses it right across the finish line!?! That was...more

In terms of Redbull TV, I have heard that this part of serious media play and long-term strategy decision. Whether we like it or not, every company with disposable cash is getting into the media business. The ease of distribution has enabled everyone ... more »

Added reply in a thread Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/3/2019 6:50 AM

Given that there are points on the line for Qualis I think there would be decent viewership here and worth an extra fee. I do wonder about logistics though. What is the gap between riders at qualis? I believe its pretty tight which would make filming ... more »

Agree, although I do think there could be some new sections and even possibly putting the cameras in different sections to provide us with a bit of a different feel.

For all the talk about Ft. William being too easy or too fast, 99% of those saying so would have their hands fall off after two laps. Def classic.

I also think the lighter frame and, potentially wheels, allow them to have heavier parts in other areas and stay at a weight they want. Who knows, they may also be fucking with us.

Added a comment about feature The State of U.S. Downhill Racing According to Neko Mulally 3/18/2019 6:51 AM

I like Neko's thinking. Given the riders at Windrock, I wonder if there is a real opportunity for the Southern States to put together a spring series that can be a good tune-up for WC riders (simply, a lot closer from a travel perspective for Euro based teams).
