Added a comment about press release Developing: Trek World Racing Wants Aaron Gwin Back, Whiteley May Pursue Legal Action 1/8/2013 9:45 PM

isn't there a potential conflict of interest here? If Whiteley is/was Gwin's agent, while also running the TWR team, that would be a problem... If so, Gwin has likely done the right thing... anyway, was he Gwin's agent?

He's fine. Racing sunday. Check his twitter feed for a photo of his face with a gouge in it! What place was he at the splits??

Sweet PVC shock! Must be new technology. Seriously, looks hot. Wonder what it weighs.

is that for sure - Nick Beer on Devinci? his name wasn't listed on their WC team, so I wasn't sure they could add him?

bummed but stoked is right. i think ultimately a 2 part series was doomed - e.g. even snowboarding had to eventually fold and full under the FIS umbrella. i do think freecaster did a mostly good job, and it's tough to see them not around to reap some of the rewards of what they helped create. still, solid coverage via redbull should be rad.

Brook has since tweeted that he was riding moto with Blenki and borrowed some old gear. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer...

doesn't the guy look like he has a broken elbow and a giant cod-piece?

I love that people can have a reasonable discussion on this forum. I think I was wrong. This new series will kick ass. Seeing full runs of the top 20 is all I ever want anyway and we'll get it here. Big prize money ensures the big guns will be there. Can't wait.

support? the costs of attending additional races and paying crews will massively overwhelm any benefit for all but the largest teams, not to mention privateers and amateurs. bike racing is a money losing business. add to that the additional threat of injury (twice as many races = twice as many injuries, or worse) and perhaps fatigue from the fans from trying to follow and watch 16 races through the year? it'd be nice if this series overtook the UCI, but that's probably not going to happen. look at what happened to snowboarding when they tried to work outside the confines of the FIS: they failed.

gotta be peaty minnaar and roskopp at the table, as well as ratboy sitting on the crate. it's kind of a lousy looking rat, if that's what it is. scott makes sense. or a french team - lapierre?

i think lopes can read, but probably only at a grade 6 level. higher reasoning, which would be required to decipher these cartoons, is sadly something he probably lacks.

So this is why they named the new event the "Eliminator".....

because they're going to make competitors eat ex-lax first.

everyone's going to gripe here, but I personally don't care that 4X is gone. it was usually a "first out of the gate wins" style of race, crossed with roller derby that made it look stupid. when it wasn't laughable roller derby it was boring for most fans, and previous commentary would back that up. they made some changes late this season that made it more attractive, but maybe it was too little too late.
