This is a tragedy. I know time marches on and all that, but this feels like a real loss to the soul of the sport. @sspomer, any chance this could make the main page? The kids need to know.

Silverback sends you a shot of Towball riding his bike around barefoot, and that’s a #teamrumor? C’mon Spomer, we expect better. PS, all I really care about is where Nina and Vali end up next year.. is women’s racing more exciting than the men’s these ... more »

I thought the same thing. But then again, how tall is Payet? 7'8"? The podium photos from Worlds last year are amazing, him and Danny are the same height, and Danny is on the top step of the box!

Polished bike (with supremely talented rider at the handlebar) takes the win. Vindication! Redemption! THE CURSE IS DEAD!! All joking aside, I am so very, very stoked for Bruni. He is truly one of modern downhill's greatest sportsman, and has officially ... more »

This is my bike from '98. There was this magazine ad for GT; it had Peaty holding an LTS frame above his head, with a picture of the full bike next to it. It was love at first sight. My original plan was to order the sister-bike to the one ... more »
