THANK YOU, @Primoz! . . . Regarding Intense, Gwin owns the team, not the company. It was well documented at that point that he wanted off the Mob, because he wanted to do the things his way. This also coincided with a moment when Intense brought in a ... more »

One of the more prominent names dropped by Red Bull in recent years was Tanner Hall, who has been obviously huge for them. Being a Red Bull athlete comes with huge benefits, for example being thoroughly physically tested and receiving a custom-made training ... more »

My apologies. I didn't see it, but I meant well.

I think it's a bit deeper than that. Don't forget Loic had an internship with 100% a few years back and their connection is long running. Probably Specialized and Fox are cool enough and don't mind this, or he has enough leverage to keep this connection. ... more »

Maybe they're just buying Transition frames, like their Montgenevre DH team used to back in the day when Sam Dale was racing for them! :D

Loic is on 100% for eyewear.

Well, now seeing Loris in that 100% kit, which seems to be a given for the Trek Factory Team, it seems very less likely for him to be joined by Vali, who has confirmed Oakley and Troy Lee Designs as her sponsors for the future too. Will she go to Specialized? ... more »

”Unceremoniously dropping Gwin”??? As far as I can remember, dude went his own way, to form a team like he desired. It's not like when the Celtics sent Isaiah Thomas to the Cavs, after he worked his b̶u̶t̶t̶ hip off and sacrificed everythng for his team... ... more »

Why not? You want to push both to sell and supporting teams is natural marketing. But I guess Fox knows better. I only said what I'd LIKE to see, not what the future holds, as I am no clairvoyant. :D

A few thoughts: 1. We ASSUME that a certain rider is going to a certain team, because we figure out certain parts on censored photos that haven't been censored good enough, but why aren't we taking into consideration that there are small sponsor/partner ... more »

Wait, Vali got TWO free cars? When? Where? What kind? What is the reach of each? What pressure is she running, front and rear? How many rebound clicks? Angle of the shifting lever? I. Need. To. Know!

I will barge in with a slice of my personal experience in this regard, not sure how much it helps. Context is this: I live in an area where most trails are difficult, we used to ride our DH bikes much more in the past, at some point we lost shuttling ... more »

I am also very curious about Marshy, as he is a very likeable guy and the Syndicate like a family. When I read about his retirement, I thought he was tired of the circuit life, but apparently not... Probably the man has bills to pay and royalties from ... more »

Reply to Tires and inserts 10/19/2020 2:05 PM

@rockchomper: I ran the Michelin Wild Rock'R2 in Gum-X compound on the rear of my enduro bike and it's been a very good tire. It's also not very expensive, I guess. However, this is not a DH casing tire and I am running it with CushCore, which is the ... more »

Don't forget ”The Black Angels - The First Vietnamese War”,”Bauhaus - The Man with the X-Ray Eyes” and ”Burzum - Ea, Lord of the Depths” from Earthed. From the top of my head. Mx

It doesn't get much better than the Beach Boys making a song for an engine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHRJCcCYAF4 ...well, maybe Jaya The Cat singing about an El Camino or Primus dubbing the ballad of a 4-4-2 driver!
