Yikes.Not sure I’m buying this crap. Tossing Hall under the bus too. Pretty lame. The crank broke. They’re crap. It’s been pretty well documented. Why would you have a pair of 3 year old cranks in your pits anyway?

Awesome to see some legit DH going on in the USA! It is great to see the stoke among a new generation of downhillers. It takes another level of commitment to race DH these days with all the fun and convenient enduro races around. It was thick and serious back in the day in the USA....more

As a guy who often writes too much for little-to-no reward on the internet, I appreciate the essay you've put together here

That said, arguing that people "aren't doing it right" when it comes to assessing performance is a tough sell. Though I haven't had much...more

5th frame? Um, no thanks. I might as well buy a Cannondale.

hmm. I agree, if someone is not as fit as you they shouldn’t have the privilege of participating in a race if they don’t want to train for the climbing. Grow up. This is great for people looking for a good time without worrying about what 3k feet of climbing will do to them...more

Plenty of Enduro series have long transfers. Many have no lift access what so ever. This is clearly meant to be more of a fun get together with a quality clocking system than a full on competitive race series. I rarely plan vacations around races as the payout is usually...more

Saw a bunch of Cannondale and GT employees at Highland bikepark on a weekday in fall 2018. One of them was on a blacked out DH bike that was unrecognizable, gonna assume that was the new cannondale.

I respect Chris Ball and all he has built with EWS. I believe most of his intentions on the partnership are positive. That said, handed the rule book over to the UCI (yes he said 'partnership' but we all know how heavy handing the UCI is) and adding more bureaucratic...more
