It was surely an 'age of discovery', advancements and horrible accidents to help develop products of today. Wether unsafe materials, lack of engineering, etc.... That being said, when Leigh and Brian were on Mongoose in 95, they rode some handmade german ... more »

Of course my pits days are old school, but, the GT Bicycles 18 wheeler, OR the other Big Rig they had (yes, they had 2)....was the benchmark in pit setups. But, going to the World Cups the last few years, I like the Mondraker guys pits, SRAM rig is pretty ... more »

Stiksandstones, I think I started it in the late 90's, a blog, with some insider gossip from the circuit. It caused too much drama, some uptight people got SO bent out of shape about it, hate email, people wanting to fight me. I forgot what I wrote in ... more »

More importantly, I have heard they are ditching the ridiculously stupid "clothing rule" for trade teams, the rule that states everyone must be in the same kit, all F-ing year long. Can anyone confirm this dismissal of a idiotic ruling?

^ This. One correction though, only Women's World Cup DHracing is in red alert mode if you ask me, I have watched it for 25 years, and it's as bad as it's ever been-in regards to future talent rising up. This is no disrespect to the handful of ladies ... more »

For those taint torture specialists, what kind of saddle would you suggest for this chamois-less approach?

Team Robot/Roadie look is not good for the uniqueness that is DH MTB racing. Hated this rule before I was at an apparel brand, hate it even more now. I hope other teams follow Syndicates move.

I hear Ragot will ride on a team, with someone she has been team mates with before.

The idea is awesome, and is alive and well. SRAM/TLD athletes can ride whatever frame they want. (see our current program, Russell on Trek, Shaw bros on Specialized, for the time being?).

Reply to 2015 Racing Rumours - MTB Musical Chairs 10/27/2014 11:25 AM

I sense some trolling in this, but, to answer your question, yes, whatever frame each rider wants to race on, is still a major focal point of the program. It's one of the cooler aspects of the team, and it also is a nice bargaining chip, as riders who ... more »

Not taken in NZ...Luca Shaw, Walker Shaw and Russell Finsterwald will be with SRAM / TLD Racing. Joining them on the team for 15' will be ____________________

I often say, it's insanity that you can (in theory) put a chain from a bike 100 years ago, onto a bike today. Enough with gizmos and gadgets and lets get rid of the CHAIN!

Gwin is a redbull guy, so is Brook Macdonald. Just saying.

Considering more than half of these were wrong last year, don't take em' to heart too much. But I do give them props for the added graphic design (shading on the mountain tops, nice touch)
