Added reply in a thread Minnaar winning streak? 10/1/2022 1:32 PM

Personally I think it should be up to the riders, they're the ones putting their bodies on the line.

Added reply in a thread Minnaar winning streak? 10/1/2022 12:02 PM

Watching Jackson's performance at Hardline told me everything I need to know about how he'll do in elites. I also think he (and Jordan) will take a lot of confidence from the times they've posted against elite riders this year ( I know track conditions ... more »

Edit; It seems Tredz (owned by Halfords) are now the sole UK distributor. Out of the frying pan...

Between this move and only allowing UK purchasers to get their bikes through that shitbag Mike Ashley, I can't feel sorry for them if they fail to weather the coming storm. Obviously I'm talking about the bosses, not the employees.

Added reply in a thread World Cup Prize Money Needs to Increase 9/30/2022 5:06 AM

Whoever is doing it, reducing or freezing prize money in DH or EWS and giving that money to people racing electric bikes is such a backward step. Is there anything more pointless than racing ebikes? Trouble is, the bike companies will be fully behind ... more »

Ah, now you say that I think you're right.

I'm sure I heard something recently about prize money being split between DH and Ebike races. Or did I dream it?

Added reply in a thread Coming back from a scary one... 9/18/2022 7:31 AM

I've had a couple of pretty bad accidents over the years. I fractured 3 vertebrae 25 years ago, then 15 years ago I snapped my left femur in 2 places. Unsurprisingly many friends and family members thought I was mad to continue riding after both of these, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Has Red Bull Hardline gone too far? 9/11/2022 5:19 AM

It seems lost on some here that the riders at Hardline are there because they want to be. None of them are being compelled to do anything they don't want to. Watch the vlogs available, they're stoked. If someone (such as Kolb) decides it's too much no ... more »

Wow. It just never starts looking any more normal does it?

Really interesting podcast with Dean Lucas and Bernard Kerr, where they talk, amongst other things, about the Discovery take over and rumoured changes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqtiIqj0dy0

I don't know if there's any truth to them, but I heard rumours that He and Will Longden didn't really get along. He certainly seems a lot happier now. I think he comes across as a guy that's happy to just do his own thing and not get too involved in ... more »

Someone else who's probably on a few team radars is Roger Vieira. He's been laying down some good race runs this season.

It was interesting listening to Reece Wilson (or is that Rilse Weeson?) on Wyn TV talking about his desire to become a commentator . As much as I want to see him continue racing I thought he was impressive at Hardline and could end up as Rob's successor. ... more »

There's a massive lump in my throat after watching Rob and the team sign off after the XC race. https://www.redbull.com/us-en/live/uci-mountain-bike-world-cup-2022-val-di-sole-xco-men @2h.30 for anyone who feels like welling up. Thank you so much Rob ... more »

Kerr vs Kerr during the broadcast had me laughing out loud, especially during the virtual straight portion during which neither Rob or Claudio could tell which was supposed to be which. What a legend...thanks for everything, Rob!!

So Peirron's got the overall. Bummer for Finn, but I'm looking forward to watching Amaury go for 5 wins, rather than playing it safe.
