Was watching Amaury Pierron's race run from Andorra, which is absolutely insane to watch... like wtf. But I actually noticed that he was running the old Code levers on his bike, kinda curious as to why he'd run these instead of the new Code's. Any ideas? But seriously, watch that race run, it's mind melting.





Probably he just likes the feel better. Given Codes where the only avid brakes to ever work it doesn't surprise me. Does anyone know if the old lever store more oil? That could be a factor in Andorra.

this is a combo of race talk and race tech i guess. val di sole timed training results are in and Sven reported that a lot of top riders were actually walking the track instead of doing timed runs. he cites that the course is so brutal, many are feeling the limits of the bikes are being pushed to their edge. how freaking scary!

see results, listen to audio here

Something as heavy as a Brooklyn (68 Lbs.) would gain speed way too fast.

Danny rode one in 2017. It was a regular rear and new front triangle. This looks different.

Payets Bike was a Prototype because his size, not the wheels. The bike was a XXL

It was a 29, look at the picture, it says so on the rear triangle.
And it says Payet in the frame.

Pierron to Syndicate 2020, stamp it.
All jokes aside, Minnaar's bike is BIG. It's impressive with a "normal" guy sat on it for reference. Must be as long as a mx bike.

Minnaar's bike is only big compared to the rest of the WC field. It still looks small for Minaar. He runs a XXL with +8mm a reachset so reach is 500mm. He can easily add another 30-40mm reach no problem. His bike looks better on Amaury then his Commencal which is only an L I believe.

I did. Looks promising! I pre-ordered a fresh D3, though, as they do have some awesome color combos and the rise of the D4 will be their swan song as it was with the D2 as well!
