Brines and Eddie are right- this ain't a new problem at all. I speak from personal experience in the late 90's when I ate an extremely hard to get $600 on a plane ticket I couldn't use to travel to Italy, Slovenia, and France for 3 WC DH races. Why couldn't I go? Because my UCI...more

This argument has been alive since NORBA Nationals went the way of the dodo bird. Eddie is right, and hopefully someone with a voice as big as his can change things. I'm not holding my breath however. As nice as it is to see the UCI involved from an accolade standpoint, it'd sure...more

I’m sure BAe and RR could turn half a million hubs if they asked...
Ps just make everything in black for 6 months or stop the slow colours and use the tanks for more black parts.

Madison and much of the surrounding area is pancake flat. A downhill will be a pig to pedal around. Sustained downhill in the area is maybe 10 seconds.

The difference between Vital test members & PB testes is that most VitalMTB riders qualified for pro licenses. Trumpore, Howell, Wentz, Sven, Turman... So if a bike needs to be ridden hard to expose limitations or positives, I trust them far more than any other site
