But why the change from Royal for clothes? Mavic has indicated that its either none or all in with them. I am guessing CRC has gone fully Mavic for the upcoming season

Gwin never broke contract. He signed a letter of intent, and decided to go elsewhere. HUGE difference.

The Power Rankings are great!

Can we get some power rankings for the Overall before this weekend is finished. It would be interesting to see what people think will happen. If the race goes like this, things will be very interesting... Troy and Rat look like the front runners, but are the Vets (Hill, Gwin, Minnaar) going to handle the pressure better??

My guess as well. Is the thought here that the SB5C is more of the SB66 replacement and this bike something more aggressive than the SB66? Its a damn good looking bike

@bturman any ideas on the angles on this bike?

I am very curious about this design. I know a lot of people thinks its a maintenance nightmare, but how this any different than a VPP bike that collects a ton of dust and mud in the bottom link? I get the rails are proprietary and you'll have to rely on yeti for warranty, etc. but since they are out in the open they should be very easy to wipe down or hose after a ride

I'm going to play Devil's Advocate for a second here since there's a lot of assumptions and blind hate toward Giant. There are other possibilities for the lawsuit being dismissed than Giant being an evil Goliath. Maybe DW's claims of patient violations would not have held up in...more

I bet one of these 3 outcomes is what happened. Seems like DW gets in his fair share of lawsuits. Soudns like he needs to do a better job negotiating his contracts with these companies when he goes in to help them with designs...

Added a comment about feature 7 Things the Leogang World Cup Taught Me 6/17/2014 5:51 PM

Lot people always complain about wanting tracks that are "legit downhill tracks."

What is a "legit downhill" track? Should there not be high speed sections? Motorways with big tables? Should every track can be full on gnar and insanely technical the entire time?

Needles complained about arm pump at the bottom of leogang. I just think variety is key to finding who is the best rider over the year, which should be the goal.

Vital crew. It would be cool to get a comprehensive review of what all the riders think about the track. I think certain riders will bitch about certain things all the time, but good to get an overall feel though.

Would love to see Stevie, GM, and Ratboy on top this weekend. I think we really have potential this year for 3/4 guys with a shot of the overall going into the final race which would be awesome.

I fee like almost in anyone in the top 10 has a good shot of winning this weekend

Feel like Bruni should be higher, but the field is so stacked I have no idea where he would end up...

I say reveal the names from the predictions after the race!

You sure? For some reason I remember Gee not doing well in qualifying last year at Mont Saint Anne and luckily for him he missed the rain because he went before the top guys.

I know there are points on the line for qualifying but maybe some guys in the top 20 go slow in qualifying to start early on Sat if the conditions will be better?

@ballr so how did it pedal uphill compared to the older nomad? The slacker head angle makes it seem like it could be worse, but I always felt on the older nomads that the seat angle hurt uphill ability. Still love the nomad and this version looks awesome

Curious to see how Minnaar does, he but some time into people at the bottom
