This situation still burns me up...and i'm old, been around DH racing since the dawn of time, NORBA before USAC ownership was a hillbilly organization, but, they cared about MTB racing and cared about DH (and slalom) but they were short staffed and underfunded ... more »

Peaty was 9 times a top 5 worlds rider and 5 times a medalist-so I'd say Peaty's track record as a world championship caliber rider was very well aligned for a win.

I think the only way to get another spot is when the world champs is the host nation, of which we are not. But then again, I am no USAC/UCI expert.

Gutted for Austin Dooley, what a complete cluster. The strange thing is, I assumed all athletes know they have to petition for spots if not automatic qualifiers (and automatic qualifiers I think is some heavy criteria? National Champ, or podium at a ... more »

Hey, the good news is, we can watch (at a price) some live USDH, more than we can say about EWS?

But what about all that 'discovery channel' hoopla? Will discovery do stories on the inadequate pay? The key question is, What does Sven have to say about this?

Shredder, forgot to mention Vali Holl, fastest qualifier at world champs last year in her first Elite season-yeah, she had an issue on the morning of the race (practice crash) but she was the only female sending that jump in the mud...definite contender ... more »

Reply to 700-day Lead Times on MTB Components? 5/5/2021 2:55 PM

What if some of this is fake hysteria to drive sales, feed the beast, keep the fire on, etc etc etc? Not saying supply/demand issues are not real, but, I feel like one persons 250 lead time becomes 300, then 400, etc....just in rumor mill. Also, the ... more »
