Reply to Snowshoe World Cup DH Finish Feature 8/26/2021 5:20 PM

Dafuq?! Any high speed grassy flat turn is more spectacular to see than this,at least for me. Mountain biking race courses should represent what the sport is about,and this has nothing to do with downhill.

Can't believe there isn't one single manufacturer in NA that produces disc rotors.

30 years in this sport and I'm still reading the same BS as it was 1992. Pre-production,defected batch, prototype,my a$$!

I'm not the biggest critic of the UCI,but DH is in much need of a new life.

Reply to Is straighter and faster really that bad for a World Cup track? 1/17/2017 11:38 AM

A bit of everything makes it great. There aren't many races,so at least make them different. In the early days,the tracks in USA were mostly fireroad full speed,and Europe were super tech/muddy. Now it looks all the same.

Good luck to Graves with those plastic brakes.

Any news on ACChausson's new ride?

So,with Shaw and Vergier on the Syndicate,we can say for sure that Ratboy is out?

I'm a man of simple dreams...I wish I could manual for more than 1 meter.

Let's stop for a moment to see what happened to Cross Country racing with it's introduction in the Olympics: - Shortened races (1h30 max) because tv broadcasting time - Artificial tracks because public acess and tv - Tech areas where riders can have ... more »

Bringing DH to the masses? The masses can kiss our asses. DH doesn't need or belong in the Olympics. Neither does XC,BMX and a lot of other sports,specially soccer. I don't want DH to be a super sanitized, made-for-tv show like XC is now. On the other ... more »

Reply to What Would You Do for MTB if You Won the $1,300,000,000 Powerball Jackpot? 1/8/2016 4:20 PM

I would certainly buy every E-Bike I could get my hands on,take the engines out and give them away.

Well if Graves leaves Yeti,who's his sucessor? Any ideias anyone?

Reply to 2016 Racing Rumours 10/22/2015 4:33 PM

KTM? Give me a break,they never had a proper dowhill bike! The KTM bicycle brand is XC-oriented and just pays the motorcycle KTM brand to use the name,they're not the same company. I guess many people don't realise that.

Nice shock.

I guess it's not bad,Rojo has qualified 1st today for the Masters world championship by over 10 seconds.

There was a time us europeans knew every name in any top 15 on NORBA races. Now not even top 5. Heck,even Canada has more familiar names in their team!

Reply to Hard Crashes: How Do the Pros Survive? 10/2/2012 5:22 PM

It's all about having the best doctors,guys. I broke/dislocated my right elbow 10 years ago,my cheap federation insurance didn't care that much about me and I was left with a limited arm at the age of 28. Being fit and knowing how to crash definitly ... more »

Gee Atherton was the leading rider for Shimano gear the last few years,maybe they need someone new in the program...and the Syndicate is podium certified all around. Now,for the forks...

Reply to Survey, The Future of UCI 6/20/2010 5:45 PM

sspomer,I'm a amateur racer (and team manager),and I was trying to find that option in the survey...but anyway,ended checking the spectator/fan form and gave UCI my €2c (adding up to the 90€ from this year licence)
