Hah. "I'm not super social" We've known each other by rep for something close to 20 years and when we finally meet this year, you gave the most awkward bro hug of all time. You duh man. Come to Asheville so I can get you some real riding in. Photographers hate it because it's so green and dark....you'll be forced to ride instead

Holy crap. Where'd he find those old Wildgrippers...new at that?
Herndon snapped his LTS DH at Seven Springs & they pieced together a size small for him to race. The shock would rub the tire at full compression.
I remember drooling over the LTS so bad. And yet now that is a complete pile of crap turd, yet what Peaty did on that thing at Seven Springs was unbelievable!!!

Man. Results all over the board for everyone. Maes was the only elite rider who managed to avoid a destructive stage.

So It's great that the junior winner is so consistent, but it's going to suck for women's World Cup if the up and coming riders are 45 seconds behind the junior winner who is still 8 spots back from the women's winner.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but if all the other girls coming up are that far off one girl?

I've said this multiple times, but it really does suck when what should be a monster of a brand like GT (yes, I know they've been revamped) can't produce a solid race bike for groms, teens & starters.
$4k entry level price?

..and yet at every World Cup, the top 10 fastest "out of the gate" tend to land in similar positions at the bottom of the track. Sure Gwin won once chainless & Neko got 4th chainless. But those results happened once. Sprint ability still matters.
Granted the biggest difference in modern bikes is that clutch derailleurs don't throw chaings

As a visual, I absolutely LOVED him leading out a pack of new generation groms at a small spot then the pan out of him standing amongst all those riders who probably grew up idolizing or telling their kids about him. Just an insane honor to say I've gotten to watch him up close & personal making a GT Lobo do unspeakable things & trash talking with Palmer at other times.

The guy everyone wants to call friend.

That rock roll is all new. The POV video of him eating rock face going to his left at Mach 10 should have been in there too so people can see just how much risk he's taking & how quick it can go wrong.

I'm going to copy & paste the email to userid MelanieHess from the other site, as obviously she doesn't mind it being known or she would not have posted it. If in poor taste Spomer, I can delete it. Figured it would be in poorer taste to post the site:

MelanineHess-Email I received from Marc Gullickson when I inquired about how they came to their decision:

"Hello Melanie,

Thank you for your email. I have read through it thoroughly and would like to bring to your attention the reasons for our selection. The decision on the 7th and final position for the team this year was not an easy one to make and there were several factors that the committee weighed in their selection process.


Our USA Cycling Selection Committee ultimately made the unanimous decision to choose Nik Nestoroff for the final position on our team based on his future medal capability. We determined that Nik’s result trajectory over his short racing career provides a higher probability that he will at some point in the future be a medal capable rider at the DH World Championships. Since Max and Nik’s results this season were by and large comparable to each other, we looked to our Principles of Athlete Selection document which the USAC Selection Committee is tasked with adhering to when making the selections. This part of the selection document prioritizes future medal capability over immediate results when there is a reasonable argument that a riders result trajectory is improving at a faster rate.


Without a doubt Max has had a good season and we wish him continued luck in the future."

There is an email response on another site by Mark Gullickson. It is a horrendous reason. Basically says Max had a good year but they dug up an obscure rule that they could use to award a position based on "future potential". Just horrible to punish hard work & good results with the excuse of getting him experience cause he's young. I mean...the kid has already made the rounds of the World Cup circuit and did not qualify for a finals a single time. Just absurd. They're acting like they are awarding a Junior X spot contract extension???
