I have a Sam Hill photo burned in my mind—I think it’s MSA. It was printed in Dirt and Sam was full gas on the hip under the gondola, back foot barely on the pedal with just the back of his heel, much like the first photo here. What a boss.

I'm behind this because I trust the EWS guys to do it right. This isn't something they'll just work out on the day.

For sure, make it so that the battery will not last the whole race or close to and the rider has to strategize the battery power VS human input. Make the course consume the battery power.

What isn't very clear in any of these images I realize is that there is a huge space in front of the bottom bracket for any mud or water to fall out... much like on the Legend. I've been riding versions for nearly three years in Scotland... Trust me, mud is not...more

Fair question... For rune we change seat angle for sizes to adjust balance slighty based on expected rider height and body position. But also when seated, the higher the saddle is,the more it will shift your arse over the rear wheel, but this is balanced by fact...more

If I really wanted to avoid the results I'd just not visit Vital / PB until I've watched the race.

The only time this has been a problem for me is when RedBull posted "See Loic's Winning Run" video right on the page where you go to see the replay. All news sites should be expected to post the results imo.

Books and films are very different from a major sporting event, e.g. the ending of a book is never a newsworthy item in itself, whereas the outcome of a race clearly is.

does anyone expect the results of the superbowl to be withheld by espn, nbc, pbs, hbo, nytimes, drudge report, pennysaver and the appalachian gazette until everyone watches the game? fwiw, we don't spoil WC race results in titles or even the subtitles (text that social media picks up and could spoil)....more

You might think that, but our experience points to the opposite. Reporting the news with an exciting title that actually describes the news item seems to get better views than the "click here to find out who won" version. And to continue the analogy I gave in the text, under which circumstances would...more

This email and comments are a bit much... Vital is a news site and it's there obligation to report the news. If they didn't report the news of gravity MTB timely, I probably wouldn't visit the site.

ESPN, Nytimes, WSJ, etc. all report the winner of major events in real-time. Shit, I get a push...more

I go through this every Supercross season... On Saturday evening, I stop looking at my phone so I can get home from work, eat dinner, and then start watching the race that is recording.. FB and the internet will still be there a few hours later...

But, in today's world, most people want the results...more

this is what we already do (and have done for years) w/ WC race results. no spoilers in WC race titles or subtitles. quali and timed training, we'll spoil because of human powered suicide machine's rules.

haha, this article rubs the readers the wrong way... I'm 100% with Peter. Come on Vital, don't try to avoid the blame for unethical behavior. Don't feel entitled because US readers offer you the privilege of our attention.
