RE. on the move - I would imagine that Brosnan is staying put? He has his own signature line of components (bar, stem, etc.) with Canyon which I would also imagine that he is being nicely compensated for.

But XC, Enduro, 4X, Slopestyle, etc. are not exclusive feeding series for DH. Sure there is a little crossover, but it's not like it is for F1, so no they should not be viewed in the same way. My point was to show that if you are going to cut the main ... more »

Remember that Formula One also has Two and Three, and a whole host of other car racing leagues exist too. If the UCI reduces the field of current World Cup competitors down to 30 (and remember it has already been reduced to 50 down from 80), then there ... more »

Thanks dad

I'm 38 and from the Northeast, where I raced DH and worked in a bike shop for 9 years (that's just to give some perspective on where I'm coming from, nothing more). Some valid points for sure, nothing that really runs contrary to ... more »

The US being so large is a contributing factor to why they aren't more rounds in the USA. Most brands aren't equipped for it, as most of the support is in Euroland. Have two rounds, one east coast & one west coast, would piss off the teams and sponsors ... more »

When a perfectionist, super elite athlete like Gwin talks about needing to get a better feel for his bike, we have good reason to believe him. He finished 1.5 seconds back from Bruni. We're not talking about a sucky run here. We're talking about the ... more »

The GX builds aren't that obscene tho... Cheaper than an Evil Following GX (which I understand is not an apples to apples comparison).

I went to Park City, rode a bike, thought it was bitchin' so that's what I wrote. As contributors, we have day jobs and aren't lining our pockets with ad money, no tin foil hat...more

The designer must have been the person who liked the Lapierre 'Spaniel taking a shit ' look.
