Reply to EWS Coverage & the overall ROI for companies sponsoring enduro racers 6/8/2022 6:09 AM

Going Racing is almost never “worth it”, but it is always worthwhile. Fielding a race program is about the Values, not the “ROI” racing brings to a brand. Racing at an EWS venue during the same time period as the marquee event is open to just about anyone ... more »

Reply to Snowshoe World Cup DH Finish Feature 8/28/2021 6:02 AM

Oh, it's definitely supposed to be for spectator access. Maybe this was cheaper than a shipping container, given covid demand? The funny thing is a shipping container drop wouldn't have created so much electronic venom! Hopefully the crew is also putting ... more »

hmm, is IMBA Trail Solutions and Snowshoe Corporate this out of touch with the zeitgeist of racing? I get wanting to make something “memorable” to “keep up” with Gravity Logic projects at Trestle, Bryce, Thunder, but this seems like a feature just built ... more »

Looks like Flosports has a mtb worlds feed- and it doesn’t even appear to be geo restricted. Just checked my usac account dashboard and and with an active membership the Flosports subscription is $120.

i would pay for FloSports if the slalom was covered! Such a bummer, especially when Leigh and Trill Will would entertain the heck out of people! McGill did a great job on that track!

I still wear my open face D2 when I’m sessioning the short little jump trail near my house, but man, I’d so much rather it were TLD Stage helmet instead.

Reply to minnaar's sew up maxxis DH tires 5/2/2012 9:02 AM

It's a full tubular casing. They're different than a standard clincher casing because they are fully round. The tube is sewed into the tire.

A high TPI cotton sidewall is used on the Dugast mtb tires that I have one of my racers on. Cotton(or ... more »
Reply to minnaar's sew up maxxis DH tires 5/1/2012 3:55 PM

Tubular tires as used in road, cross, track, xc racing. On a track where you don't have to worry about killing sidewalls they'd be so awesome. All of that casing offers a really lively pedaling feeling that makes you want to pedal hard as hell. You can ... more »

We have the third generation of pros on our hand and the beginning of the third stage of racing- the re-professionalization. My Friday evening pre-Windham spiel exists here. There is nothing surprising going on, but it is exciting to watch.
