That close-up shot of Loic fist-pumping is fantastic.

I think it's boring two races at the same track even with some diferent parts. Maybe two completely diferent tracks at the same city can be very nice.

The Specialized oficial stores here in Rio de Janeiro Brazil force me to buy a size M 5K bike and in the sizing chart I am XL. I buy a XC bike and the lock out is broken on the first day of use, I take my bike to bleed a new Shimano brake
and the Specialized "mechanic" destroy my brake and don't pay for the damage. Yeah Golden age.

Who will be the first tire manufacturer to launch a tire with some type of insert already embedded in it as an option?

Been there for some days and I can say this place is like heaven, the trail is a red one from de Bikepark and there is no steep parts, no rock gardens and even a single double jump so the track is not challenging like Fury and Venosc that are amazing tracks. The challenge will be the competitors not the track I think. Anyway any DH race is a challenge. USA tracks looks much gnarlier than this.

...and now the video is done.

Total crap. One pull on a stationary bike is meaningless. Noone is making power numbers on a mountainbike to the extent of road cyclists, also with having that power be sustained for a length of time as a sprint-to-the-finish. '1500w(?)' for 10 seconds? Try...more

I think Enduro racers have to climb a lot long steep uphills on transitions and also some flat and uphill parts of the trail they are racing so in my opinion without any doubt they are on clipless for pedal eficiency. There are a lot of people, specialy the ones that never raced DH that think DH races are won by the ones that brake less but DH races are won also on every pedal section of the trails and even final sprints so for shure most of the DH racers are on clipless for pedal eficiency and also for jumps and rock gardens. Well, if 100% of XC racers are on clipless why do I have to doubt the eficiency of clipless pedals for MTB? Thats completely non sense. Or we gonna see Nino on flats next XC race? I ride clipless since 89 and in the last 5 years i've been in love with my Boomslang pedals with 5/10 shoes the grip is so amazing but when I pedal with flats I can feel my pedal eficiency is much weaker no one need to say that for me. I respect a lot your opinion this debate of pedals have a lot of people thinking diferent.

100% XC racers on clipless, 95% DH racers on clipless and 95% Enduro racers on clipless,
how can anyone doubt the efficiency of a clipless pedal on any MTB discipline? OK Sam Hill won tons of races with flat but anyone knows who is Sam Hill.

nah. Cushcore is the only way to support those things if it's really the tire one wants to run. Around here we call em the EXOonooooooo for a reason :-)

Too bad that MaxxGRIP couldn't come with the casing to actually support it. Say no to EXOonoooooo

I don't get the complaining about the $65 price tag. A Minion DHR/F EXO with their Maxterra compound is normally around $90. Sure, you can find them on sale for a little less. Definitely like the initial review of these and I'll probably pick up a pair to try them out.

HOWEVER, come on...more

I agree with you in wanting burlier stuff, but when specing a trail bike going overboard with the burly stuff can sometimes send the wrong message of what the bike is for. If they spec'ed an X2 and a 150 36 on there and people might think it's made for something it's not and could lead to possible...more
