Reply to Does the New UCI President Really Care About MTB? 9/22/2017 5:19 AM

Surely if we still have a world cup series, it means they still care even a little? Otherwise they'd have dropped it like 4X. My guess is it's still a nice bit of income for them, although not as significant as road cycling (Shimano is title sponsor ... more »

Love me some nerd facts. I'd just like to point out that the Ratpollo mission was in 2014, not 2015

It's total amassed UCI points, not just points gained at world cups. Gwin doesn't do many races other than world cups, whereas Danny and Troy do a lot of smaller races

Wasn't Gee spotted riding a 29er last year? I'm pretty sure it was mentioned/hinted on GMBN

Remy once again with the line nobody had seen. This is why he's amazing on all tracks that have wide, fresh sections with pleny of lines to choose from.

Reply to Brake Set-Up Moto or Traditional 8/6/2016 6:00 PM

I tried to swap my brakes, to prepare for the day I'm rich enough for a dirtbike (read: the day I settle for low/medium range mtb stuff), and just couldn't ride at all. I've talked to a few people who run their brakes "euro-style" and have a dirt bike, ... more »

Reply to Radio Use in WC DH? Legal? 6/12/2016 8:33 PM

I remember Sam Hill saying his crash at the Hafjell worlds was due to someone yelling at him that he was 3 seconds up. He went a bit slower, and got stuck in a hole he normally would've ridden over. There's a helmet cam of Loic's final run at PMB in ... more »

Reply to What Single Piece of Advice Would You Give the Aspiring Racer? 6/10/2016 6:15 PM

There's this guy who does mtb-related podcasts on iTunes, and he interviewed Eliot Jackson a few weeks back. So many great tips coming from a guy who has "made it". [img] Soooo cool to do an episode on @thenewstandardpodcast !! I listen to a lot of podcasts while I'm traveling, so to be on the other side of it is super exciting! I got to talk about a lot of interesting stuff and Ilan is a great host! The link's up in my bio! A photo posted by Eliot Jackson (@eliotjackson) on May 13, 2016 at 9:56am ... more »

I like underdogs so I went with Mick Hannah, Matt Walker, Loris Vergier, Emilie Siegenthaler, and... Gwin?

Reply to 2016 World Cup Fantasy Vital MTB Mini-League 3/18/2016 6:58 PM

It's weird that Sam Hill is worth only 150K. It's Sam F-ing Hill! Oh, and Mick at 100K? Didn't he finish 9th at worlds? He's worth the same as Charly Di Pasquale, who most of you have probably never heard of, if not for the videos of his massive crashes ... more »

When I see telemetry, I think of Gravity Republic right away. Weren't there rumours of them riding for Canyon at some point?
