Added reply in a thread Coming back from a scary one... 9/14/2022 11:29 AM

Crashes and injuries are part of the sport unfortunately. First and most importantly, just focus on having fun while riding. You will slowly build confidence and then work up to the point where you are pushing again. Might take a few months, but you ... more »

What a great race. Always insane to see one rider find multiple seconds in one section that nobody else saw.

My gut is that Gwinn wants it bad this year. He seems to be on a mission right now and the new Intense looks like it is working really well on track. The bike looks really settled in both the rough and the corners under both Gwinn and Dak.

Added reply in a thread WC DH Racing's Future is Uncertain, Can We Do Anything To Stabilize It? 7/16/2022 8:54 PM

A few thoughts here. First off the decline of DH bike sales is directly related to how capable long travel single crown bikes have become. I raced the DH courses in the 90's and a lot of them could be ridden at speed on a trail bike today. The forest ... more »

Added reply in a thread Should World Cup Downhill Racers Have Permanent Numbers Assigned? 7/15/2022 2:19 PM

I think the number is only "retired" for a short amount of time, if at all in MX. For example Carmichael was running #2 which is now Webb's permanent number. BTW I would like to see either permanent or annual numbers. Would make it much easier to identify ... more »

What about the chain stay on Finn's bike? Thing is massive and looks to be CNC'd.

All I can think of is Olympics coverage. "And now back to the studio" after we see 2 minutes of coverage.

This is going to be ugly from what we are seeing so far. No live coverage, instead some highly edited hits reel with 40% of the 30 minute show dedicated to commercials.

Added reply in a thread EWS Coverage & the overall ROI for companies sponsoring enduro racers 6/8/2022 8:52 AM

Here is my opinion which is worth what you are paying for it, $0. The coverage is abysmal as they are doing it right now. Could they fix it? Absolutely, but it would take some effort and investment. Semi live to live coverage could be achieved via a ... more »

Wonder what it sold for. He it accurate that there are not a lot of contemporary homes in Temecula/San Diego.

Downhill vs XC. The Yeti is the classic colorway so it is a fairly easy choice based on looks, but the AS was never a favorite of mine. Put an ARC up there and it is no question the winner.

Guarantee that any free option is going away, so might as well accept it now. RedBull kept it free because it was one giant advertisement for their product. Discovery is a true media company so all streaming coverage is going behind a paywall. I will ... more »

Over 4+ minutes absolutely pinned on a wet track, most every gap being ballsy as heck at full tilt, both having those sketch drop rock to blind berm turns memorized and pegged.
Just about one of my favorite all time POV runs. So many perfectly executed setups in...more
