Added reply in a thread Arm Pump & Hand Fatigue - Tips & Tricks 7/24/2017 4:31 PM

Non bike set up related, but this helped me dramatically! Climb, not uphill on a bike but in a gym on a wall. You will feel arm pump harder and faster than you do riding, keep climbing through it and build the grip/arm strength. Getting back on a bike ... more »

Does anyone think it would be interesting if similar to supercross there was a 26,27.5, and 29 class and riders could race in one or multiple classes? Obviously it isn't feasible but it would be interesting to see how riders placed among different wheel ... more »

Does anyone think its news that Peaty is still listed as a Syndicate member with UCI? He did announce retirement from world cups last season, is this an option to allow for entry in a few rounds if he wanted?

Is it not big news that Peaty is still listed on the Syndicate team? He announced retirement from World Cups but could we still see him at a few rounds then?

Where have you been?!? They dropped the team with Loic, Loris, and Finn to focus on other areas. Lapierre won't have an official team this year I believe

Stoked to see him back in WC's there's so much talent and wisdom to just be making youtube videos. He should be a good leader for a team with a lot of younger talent.

Love the Marc Beaumont pick up! That guy has been in the circuit longer than almost all the other team combined I think. Great opportunity to bring some veteran experience to that team.

Probably one of the best insights into what goes on during the entire Rampage event! Love this perspective, really shows the adversity that is faced by more than just those that are riding... Gotta love Rampage!

It would make sense, Yeti is known for developing riders until they are "too big" for them to support. I don't think anyone expected Rude to come out as strong as he did this year. If anyone has a major increase in value after this season it is him. ... more »
