I'd say Jolanda is a cut above the rest.

He won at the same venue too. I think he's going to win again.

Fully agree. It certainly makes sense for Dorel to focus brands onto the disciplines where they are much better identified with. I am surmising that there must have been a disconnect somehow between the strategy planning in Dorel vs the decision makers ... more »

Banning electronic/active suspension for a race done on tarmac for dozens of laps makes sense to me (i.e. F1). You can probably even make an argument for it being banned for XCO. However, for displines like downhill and enduro I don't think current suspension ... more »

Anneke Beerten retires just over a year on from a traumatic brain injury (car accident). I've followed her on insta just to see how her rehab has been going in addition to seeing what the cutting edge is stateside on brain/consussion therapy. It's a ... more »

Unfortunate end to a tremendous competitive career. I'm sure she'll be just as successful in her next adventures.

It is understandable that active suspension would get banned in a discipline where you go dozens of tarmac laps around the same track. But perhaps mountain biking would be a different can of beans altogether, particularly in time trial type disciplines like downhill and enduro.

How much will top-shelf mtb's cost now, I wonder? Twenty grand?

Flight Attendant is all over social media now, too. Can't wait for the first ride articles.

With his spanking new EWS overall trophy, it certainly doesn't look like Shark Attack Jack is racing any DH events next year. I wonder if we'll ever see Richie Rude in the World Cup.

Added reply in a thread Richie DQ'd for cutting the course in Inners 10/2/2021 7:52 PM

Does anyone know what Richie's time would have been had he not been DSQ'd? The UCI goes down hard on course cutting. Time penalties are rarely given, and when these are given, it's usually because the rider crashed and had no way to go back inside the ... more »

Shouldn't it be time for Red Bull UK to sign Reece Wilson? They've had tremendous success with Tom Pidcock and Evie Richards on the XC side this year and they should also have a consistent podium threat on the elite men side of DH. With Gee out and Kade ... more »

I really don't see Maes leaving GT and I don't see why he would pick Orbea. If Maes is moving, and that's a big if, it's more likely for him to join Atherton Racing than a team with a manager he barely knows and riders he doesn't usually hang out with. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking for enduro frame with short chainstays 9/19/2021 9:57 PM

The Process 153 comes in at the same 435mm chainstay length, and there are aluminum versions. The older 2019 version has an even shorter chainstay length at 425mm (both on the 27.5 and 29 inch versions).

Snowshoe delivers suspense and drama yet again with how the Women Elite race turned out. Gutted for Pompon and I hope she recovers mentally from this and comes out even stronger. Luck has certainly not been on the Commençal Riding Addiction team's favor ... more »

Gwin mentioned in an interview that they would be doing a lot of testing as soon as he's recovered. I wonder if Intense has something new up their sleeve.

Titi hasn't actually lost it yet, btw. Anything can happen on raceday.

I wonder if many of the riders sandbagged this qualifying session just to have something left for another final in 3 days. I think the closest experience to this in the past would be if a rider was racing both 4X and DH in one weekend.

I have a lot respect for Sik Mik. I really hoped he would continue racing until he was 40. Btw, in an odd set of coincidences, he seems to be the only athlete to medal at an elite mtb World Champs event every 4 years (2009, 2013, 2017). I wish him the ... more »
