The world cup circuit is a very cohesive bunch, and while team riders are always priority, it's not uncommon for mechanics/team staff to help out privateers, whether by giving away parts or helping out with tinkering on the rig. Everyone is passionate about racing, so when a privateer is killing it all season you'll see a lot of people helping out where they can to keep him in between the tape.

Man, if you listen to Cathro's track walk, there is stoke about it. You watch Wyn's and all they talk about is whining about pedaling. What? The 2 sprints are short and you're still hauling ass into them. And it's gonna be dry.
Kinda wish it would rain and turn it into...more

Eddie epitomizes a lot of the good of the sport from a Kiwi lens, couldn't have happened to any more of a GC. Such a bummer.

I've lived in Belgium, where the longest downhill is about 45 seconds of flat-ish trails, with very few trails to choose from, and I've lived in Queenstown where I got to ride the bike park every single day for 8 months of the year (+ amazing trail riding the other 4 months). I'm convinced that areas with limited riding breed better riders, since you're bound to end up riding the same (sections of) trails over and over and over again, and it's much easier to improve than if you were riding 10 different trails in one day. It's the age old "practice makes perfect" v.s. "perfect practice makes perfect" dilemma.
I think the whole "sessioning 1 corner for hours on end" culture that is so prominent in the UK is why they have such talented riders

No worries. You can't be perfect all the time. Early mornings play Trickstuff on my old eyes as well.

There's pictures of the BB part of their frame on the Pinkbike press release which might help you make a guess..

If you look at the bikes they've been on over the years, it's pretty much always been some slight variation of a single pivot (Commencal, GT Fury, Trek Session getting rid of the Full Floater setup,...), so I wouldn't be too surprised if they came up with a similar thing. If it ain't broke...

They got fired. Rachel didn't show up to a regional event she was co-hosting with Hope, they then later found out she skipped out to go riding with her brothers so Hope terminated them.

It is the same track indeed, it's a lot gnarlier than this video makes it seem. It's not the most technical, but still really steep and traction will be a big issue at higher speeds. Also, with how soft the dirt is over there, I predict the track will turn to shit by day 2
