It is no longer UCI legal to use those tactics in qualifying. Hence why everyone is complaining, and why they only broadcast the top 20 or so qualifying racers.

Nah, that was maybe a top ten run. They don't give it all in qualifying, and people like Gwin don't even ride the same lines. They leave about 3-5 seconds on the table for race runs.

Added a comment about video What Is The Most Efficient Pedalling Style? Testing Flat Vs. Clipless Pedals 11/1/2014 7:42 AM

When used to a clipless pedal, there is no the wasted time clipping back in after a difficult turn. In fact, it's easier because one's foot goes back to where it should be. It takes some time to get used to though.

I rode flats for 5 years and have been clipless for 2 seasons now. I've gotten much faster as I've become one with the bike. I went back to flats for a day, and I quickly realized how bad the flats were in comparison. Aside from a rare bird like Sam Hill, clipless proves to be best for most. Would love to see how fast Sam would be on clipless pedals after he got used to them.

Specialized has been using inertia valves with their brain system for years. Aside from the internal system opposed to piggyback setup that Specialized uses, what makes your system so different? Even the marketing is almost identical. Is that the way around patent infringement?

A remedy 29 carbon an upgrade over a Stumpy Evo 29 carbon?! I wouldn't expect that. In fact, the Remedy pedals better, but the Stumpy smokes it on the descents. If that fits your riding style and goals better, then fair enough. Don't think for a second that you are getting a better bike from Trek. Spesh is waaaaay better about warranty too.
