not to nit pick, but you can't have schwable procore and enve rims right? They aren't compatible

Hahaha so true. Careful picking on the internet CFOs and CMOs... haha

I kind of agree. Maybe he has 1 more year on his contract and Spec thinks that with graves as a training partner with real enduro focus he will be better? Keene is a phenomenal rider, but there are all lot of great riders in the EWS and usually a company ... more »

As long as trail bikes "descend like a DH bike" I think you're good. Haha Since most of the bikes you guys test in the test sessions are in a similar range of use and have different specs, could you guys do a tire review? May be something you could do ... more »

wonder what the changes are at the syndicate??? Minnaar is doing an interview with Warner today... One final year for the syndicate?

Added reply in a thread 2016 Racing Rumours 11/16/2015 3:24 PM

Damn that's some serious redecorating... Is the syndicate no more, or at least in its current form? Hard to imagine that crew splitting up... GM and Roskopp seem like boys, Peaty is Peaty, and can't imagine them letting Rat go after 2 very solid seasons ... more »

Added a comment about feature Opinion: When Does Risk Outweigh the Reward? How Red Bull Rampage Changed Our Perspective 10/19/2015 7:48 AM

Couldn't agree more. This totally sucks. People will get hurt biking but the format of this event forces people to take risk that I don't think they would if "line choice" wasn't so crucial to doing well.

Also, this just shouldn't be a live event. Riders should have time and be able to wait for safe conditions over the course of a day or two to have judged runs. It's windy in virgin (all the time) so if you're going to score runs give riders a big window so they aren't forced to ride when conditions make them uncomfortable.

Lastly, I know people are fired up about red bull and rightfully so. However, we need to be careful about holding event organizers responsible for accidents because if we do (in the U.S. anyway) organizers will be getting sued left and right when someone gets injured. Events like this should have a 3rd party insurer or something like that where the organizer supports the riders in getting a fair and comprehensive deal. That's what really bugs me. Where is red bull helping riders get great insurance for rampage so if the something terrible happens medical care will be taken care of??

On a separate note, why can't this be more like other sports. Where we all know who is a free agent with speculation about who they are talking to? I get the riders contracts are through the end of the calendar year, but how about just making them end ... more »

I believe Minnaar and Rats contracts are up with SC. Peaty signed a 5 year deal a couple years ago... I'm sure at the time GM might have thought he would retire at this point but after last year he may have the itch. I would be surprised that GM leaves ... more »

So I haven't read every word here, but I have done a solid read through. It seems like the issues here have a strong parallel to another sport that handles this pretty well - sailboat racing (yeah I'm going to get murdered for this, but growing up and ... more »

Not to be a hater because the YT looks sweet, but does YT just copy Spesh's suspension platforms or is it just me...

great review, shoe looks pinned. does it have the same cleat position range as the impact VXi? looks like the impact might go a little farther back...
