Well holy hell, that was a helluva a race. I'm exhausted and haven't even gotten on a bike today.

Proper edge of your seat stuff at the end there. What a end to WC! Plus not forgetting the end of Champs.

Roll on 2020

I know it was the race of the season but where’s the winning bike article ? I’d be bummed if I was Saracen even with its trick floating brake arm not available to the public this is what we want to see especially since it’s only 1 of 3 bikes to win a round this year

1 of 4 bikes

Winning Bike, Pits &Bits are the best articles 😍
This is my favourite this year, sad that there is no side Photo without the headline

Anyone notice that Amaury Pierron had a small box on top of his helmet at the finials? It wasn’t a camera because his GoPro was tucked under his peak. So does anyone know what it is?

Could be a Lit Pro?

Could be similar but it looks different than the Lit Pro: different profile, different color.

You can use on of those QStar gps units with Litpro. It looks like the QStar units on the Commencal teams helmets

maes on a prototype fox fork?

this is EWS-specific, but we don't have an EWS tech thread.

i saw this pic on maes' insta story and wondered if he's on a prototype fork. no kashima seems weird. the arch seems smoother (no notch) and rounder. hearing rumors of a fox 38 and wonder is this it?

toblerone style

More on that new FOX fork - definitely seems a lot beefier than a 36, with a burlier arch and bleed ports to boot. Definitely something new coming...

Moving the shock to the lower link, this would currently be the only non-DH bike in the Intense line-up to feature that layout. Will the other bikes follow? (Santa Cruz has already moved pretty much their whole line to this layout now).

I believe the whole industry is heading in this direction.

There are only so many ways to get a bottle in that front triangle: vertical shock in front of seat tube, the tunnel method or 1 foot of flat downtube in front of the cranks (nasty)

Bum luck for Loris Vergier, who tore the scapholunate ligament in his wrist. I had a similar tear years ago and it kept me off the bike for several months.
