It seems incredibly unlikely is all. As a long time racer, huge fan of the sport etc, it just stinks of BS. Here is why...

1) He's a factory level racer at an EWS. Factory teams don't let riders go out without adequate supplies. I've seen team yeti operate first hand. Those guys are dialed, sometimes to an annoying extent (putting it nicely).
2) Somehow Jared just happened to have a full bottle to give to Richie? Really? Isn't Jared super OCD when it comes to how much he's carrying? How does he have a full bottle and Richie is out?
3) You are just going to take some random supplement you've never taken before that is in the water? Surely he could taste it. He asks "hey man, this tastes funny, what is it?". No WAY would I continue to drink some supplement in water (even if it was legal) as I have zero idea how my body is going to react to it. It his HIGHLY doubtful Richie would too.
4) There is usually a way to get water if you run out without "borrowing" a bottle from a buddy.

If you are going to claim he only had a sip, well, no way testing is good enough for that little.

I could go on. Richie's story is ridiculous.

Kind of a crass thing to write. Though I agree the 'water bottle was tainted' story reads very roadie-esque. He would have been better off not giving a story and just owning up to everything like Graves did.

I continue to think Graves is a badass, and just made a mistake. Rude? Not so much a fan anymore. He should have owned more of it IMO.

A Nukeproof won!! #fuckdopers

People are so stupid to believe the bullshit that has been pedalled. If he was given the water, who gave it to him and also the substances he failed for are training supplements, not something you would have in a water bottle. Don't be overwhelmed by the big star! Just ask simple questions and believe in a clean sport.

Great question. Between the Faast Flexx, Spank Vibrocore, and OneUp bars, the XC Gear stem, and RevGrips, there are all of sudden several ways of addressing similar things in the MTB space. It might be time for another Vital MTB Face Off to really feel out the differences...

If you’ve never road and E bike 25+ miles on an MTB trail (test riding one in a parking lot a few hundred feet doesn’t count!) then your opinion is bullshit. You’re probably the same person that thinks they can be a lawyer/cop because they watched a few episodes of law and order. The elephant in the room is STRAVA. As mentioned the battle has always been between Hikers and mountain bikers. Before Strava MTB where respectful to hikers... now an MTB rider will run you over to get a better Strava time. Before E bikes hundreds of trails have been closed or a speed limit added because of Strava... but let’s blame ebikes it’s because its the new thing.

Many thoughts...first one being, branding: "E-Bike" is not as true to the nature of the vehicle as it could be, therefore creating issues with regards to land access. "P-Bike" would have been a better workaround, as "Pedal Assist" is more to the point and a lot less ominous of a name when it comes to describing how it functions and interacts with the trail/rider.

I can’t help but laugh that the same group that in the last 25-30 years fought for trail access (against equestrians and hikers) are now so willing to pull the same bull with the new kid on the block. Having a growing population that is fighting TOGETHER can only help grow and maintain trail access for all of us.

ebikes sure do cause some stir. Having both ridden (on trails), sold and wrenched on them my conclusion is that they are just that, a mtb. The whole "motor" discussion is from people that havent tried one, especially the more expensive ones are really gradual in their assist. That is what they are pedal assist, which only really benefits a bit on flat trerrain and a lot on the ups. The only added "trail erosion" would come from more runs made nothng else. They cant dig in like motos, not even in your wildest fantasy would you put them on the same side as motos if you have tried one. They are a bicycle that just "cheats" a bit on your effort. So either you continue to push as hard and the motor eventually stop assisting and you are in reality just hauling ass on a heavy bike or you pace it as normal and you can stay out for longer.

As with many other discussions enlightenment is key. Everyone needs to really try and feel what they are and are not.

Personally I would appreciate an eMtb in the future, but only as a trail bike since for anything else they just add way to much complexity. As of today they are way to heavy and unreliable for me to even think of owning one. Maybe in 5-10 years.
