Haha Upper supreme to upper boogie to graveyard to pinball. My hands and arms hurt just thinking about that lap. Made it look easy too.

Yeah... I mean the following year. Not next year.

He's currently getting GT support and has a good relationship with the team from what I can gather. Pinkerton has done well with GT, and I could see Asa going abroad with them next year on a factory ride when Pinkerton ages up to Pro Men's from Juniors. ... more »

Looks like a SoCal vacation is on the books now with that payout Dak!

You might listen to the first 5 or so episodes of Matt Macduff's podcast. It's basically interviewing a ton of action sports athletes on how they've come back from injury (both mentally and physically). One thing that's helped me is to do some confidence-inspiring ... more »

Sounds like your decision is already made. My kid switches pretty effortlessly between all his bikes, but as an old man, I find the DJ MUCH easier to ride than a BMX. That being said, my kid has now pretty much settled on his BMX for all his park, street ... more »

That whole podcast with Martin is amazing. Super impressive person. He definitely made me feel more hopeful about the future of MTB with eso/disco than I have up to this point.

So did Remi! (and he promptly destroyed everyone in a local enduro race in Eureka Springs).

Podium is pretty much my biggest complaint. Have a freaking reasonable cutoff time (for enduro) that allows you to host podium at an appropriate time. If people don't turn in their chips by cutoff time, tough shit. I've seen way too many people sleep ... more »

Added reply in a thread What happened to neck braces in DH? 8/9/2022 12:02 PM

Yes. They basically have to use marshalls to make sure that the World Cup DH guys are actually wearing the padding that the rules mandate, from what I understand. I've heard talk of racers taking the padding out of their pads and such to reduce the distraction. ... more »

Leatherwood doesn't have enough elevation, really. The main rumors of actual DH tracks have centered on Mt. Magazine which has a similar prominence to Angelfire. There was a lot of talk about a chairlift going in there, but that seems to have fizzled. ... more »

Yeah. We've had a Pro Cup. It was cool when I was at US Nationals this year and people were all saying at the base, "I wish they had big jumbo viewing screens set up like they did in Fayetteville." We actually do have the elevation for a DH track in ... more »

File this one under "wild rumors" but.... My city's "Cycling Coordinator" recently flew to the MSA world cup to "scout out the possibility of bringing an event here" Now, I haven't spoken with him. I only saw that he was there on his Instagram and talked ... more »

He was on the vital post-race podcast, and evidently he's been pretty focused on Moto this year, as he's skipping the MSA race to go to Lorettas. He did say that the Snowshoe race confirmed to him that Mountain BIking is where his heart is, and he plans ... more »

Not a rumor, but I'm curious if anyone has heard anything about Charlie Harrison's injury from Nats? He's been silent on the socials. Pretty worried about him and feel so bad that he's injured again on his first return race.

One problem (and maybe this is an American one mainly) is that it seems to take a while for Americans to get up to speed on the WC tracks in Europe. Most Americans go over, and it takes them a few years to really get their bearings and start honestly ... more »

Seems like there's an opportunity here with Redbull now being freed up from contracts with UCI. I've heard a lot of people say you need USAC for event insurance and such, but you all throw your events just fine without that, right? The main issue is ... more »
