While I don't agree that gender banter is irrelevant, I do think we need a 'bigger picture' argument about injuries and life post-injury... As there was in the ski and snowboard community ten years ago, right now we're pretty much glorifying 'end justifying the means' right now without talking about the consequences of dangerous stuff. No one wants to hear about CED or brain trauma; no one wants to talk about required discectomies at 27 years old. It's real and it happens. But would our sport exist if these possibilities were in the limelight? If avalanche deaths were prevalent in ski media, would the backcountry industry be booming as large as it is now?

Meanwhile, word on the streets is that Tara Llanes is making remarkable progress with her body. Who's talking about this? And furthermore, who is looking out for the athletes of this sport that disable themselves in competition? It's cool for women to be "feminine and fierce" these days...more

Looks sweet! Hopefully the ohlins shock will kick ass like it did on the motocross bikes.

Lets be honest - as nostalgic as everyone is for 26" wheels, there is a good chance the 650b offers some considerable advantages for DH and Enduro applications, while 29" clearly makes sense for outright speed on the trail/XC side. With the increasing inertia generated by a gyroscopic effects...more

As a USA enduro event director once mentioned at a pre-race meeting earlier this year...."It's and enduro race, not a DH race"

So Dorel's got Denk working on GT now, too. What a coup it was to swipe him from Scott.
