Saw this earlier today...Disappointing. I don't know if USA Cycling is having a hard time securing venues or they just flat out don't care about the gravity discipline of the sport. Personally I feel like it is the latter. I say that because...last couple of years at the national...more

Wow. This is pathetic compared to the ESC schedule that was just put out.

The best thing about retiring from racing was not giving money to USAC.

Sigh the sport is further digging some holes as far as welcoming outsiders with Trek focusing on "youth" and teams having "Dudes" in the name. No need to walk on glass worrying about every last word and rider image but coming in a bit from the other ... more »

So who is going to check what might be behind that ebay notification? Any hints there? =)

Going to stoke the baseless crazy rumors with KTM rebranded Intense team for Gwin. :p

This kind of looks like a digital caliper hack to measure linear motion. Thought about doing this for http://picorico.io but was worried about the amount of space it takes up as well as mud issues. We went with a rotary encoder for similar in a smaller package easier to mount. Wonder how well this setup is working out. A digital caliper with off the shelf microcontrollers or what we did with linear encoder is by no means perfect nor a replacement for the multi $1k setups but they are cheap systems that are way better than the usual ziptie measurement. Next step is wireless sensors to get rid of all those wires.

Rumblings of change over at YT? What is Neko up to? Could Brook + Gwin + Neko all go back to Trek? Neko appears to be getting his hands in the mix for US DH ProGRT + US Open. Maybe Neko is the steering linchpin for YT to step in and bring US DH national ... more »

Sigh this dooms USAC even further in my opinion. I thought the only hope USA gravity racing had was maybe to break way at the mercy of UCI but that seems even more unlikely. http://www.vitalmtb.com/forums/The-Hub,2/Time-to-Say-Goodbye-to-USAC,9339?page=2 ... more »

Marcelo had the Giant logo blacked out. I noticed as well and was not sure if that was a violation of some arcane UCI rule on official country jerseys, a skinsuit tucking tactic or new sponsor possibilities

Someone with the data do a quick stat on who the better wet rider is Minnaar vs Gwin as far as results. My gut feeling says I seem to recall Gwin being slightly better although both tend to be conservative in the wet compared to some of the wild riders. If it is raining I think both of them are out of contention for first and someone perhaps less consistent but more rowdy in the wet like Hart, Bruni, Bronson or Wallace sweeps in for the win.
