Naming it the Sundae would be somewhat epic. You're referencing one of the most iconic DH bikes of all time, with a new bike designed in part by the same designer, that is somewhat visually similar. Hell, it's pretty clever.

Bike racing and doping are like hand and glove. Why do people seem surprised all of a sudden? Because someone said something about enduro being different?

Her claim is that some have it or don't... and that's true. And some that don't have it will figure it out (or not) at the junior levels. What needs to be accounted for here is that there's more to being a pro and competing at that level than the talent. ... more »

Also interesting that nobody mentioned the women. Nothing to see here – carry on.

Those guys placing 80th position in WC also don't have the "it" she's talking about either. Perhaps Juniors at the WC level is not needed but I'm curious what Kathy's proposal would be.

Ok folks, so 29ers in DH. Now that 29ers have been done... what's next for DH? "Fat DH Bikes?" 32"? (i hear it has better roll over), Pedal assist? Can't wait!

It's 2017 and we're still talking about wheel size. Wake me up when this is all over.

I used to see gazza 3.0 all the time. Now it's pretty rare - perhaps only once a year riding on the street under a 15year old DH bike caught in a time warp. But in reality... nuschool-plusboostninerwhatever ... never. If I did, I would avert my eyes. ... more »
