Let’s be honest, Sam Hill has already won that track in all our minds even if he’s not on the start line

I haven't ridden a propain yet, but IMO, they're killing it with all their new bikes in the looks department. I'd love to see George do well on them or a major team pick them up as a bike sponsor with some fast riders to see what they can do.

Looks fantastic, and production-ready. As a rider who does most of his own service, I think a design that shields the shock from rear wheel muck will be very attractive to a lot of riders. Mucho gusto.

Well said Ed - gone are the days of prviateer racers driving out to europe for a month to race world cups out the back of a shitty old transit van.

226 racers entered the Val di sole world cup in 2012 compared with 139 in 2019.

And all those privateers who saved all their...more

This argument has been alive since NORBA Nationals went the way of the dodo bird. Eddie is right, and hopefully someone with a voice as big as his can change things. I'm not holding my breath however. As nice as it is to see the UCI involved from an accolade standpoint, it'd sure...more

Brines and Eddie are right- this ain't a new problem at all. I speak from personal experience in the late 90's when I ate an extremely hard to get $600 on a plane ticket I couldn't use to travel to Italy, Slovenia, and France for 3 WC DH races. Why couldn't I go? Because my UCI...more

For USA riders last year, there were only 5 chances to earn UCI points domestically, the four Pro GRT rounds and National Champs. Of those 5, only Windrock and Nationals had enough points on offer to get a racer to the minimum needed to race a World Cup (Mountain Creek only...more

Great article, Eddie. Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't this all been done on purpose with the express intent of killing privateer racing? For their broadcast Red Bull wants recognizable names (top athletes only), lots of jumps and high speed for video (machine-built trails as...more

The EXT storia V3 has easily made the most notable positive improvement to the bike I currently ride, and I would go as far to say of any upgrade I can remember making. The bike (Rallon R5) has it issues with rear suspension/blowing through its travel. The storia manages to be...more

A new TroyLee helmet is in the works , something with more protection at the back , like a Fox Dropframe . In all the photos that Vali is riding with an open face helmet you can see it . https://www.pinkbike.com/news/photo-epic-the-prodigy-at-home-with-valentina-hll.html

If the industry had stayed with 26" wheels, there would be no need for dual crown "enduro" forks, 223mm brake rotors, 4-piston brakes on light-duty trail bikes, etc, but with 29" wheels there's so much more leverage and inertia. A 29" 170mm fork is over an inch taller than a 26"...more
