Over the Rainbow: Val Di Sole DH World Champs FINALS 2016
@mtnbiker1978: Why should a marshall sweep a track?! That is just rediculous

Fear and Loaming: Practice One - Val di Sole DH World Champs 2016
@onemanarmy: I was making two separate points. One, that it is next to impossible to asses concussion, especially short term (on the spot/ overnight) unless you are really in a bad way and MRI picks up something nasty. The only reasonably agreed point is that if you are knocked out you should have a week+ off to see if symptoms develop and especially avoid second impact syndrome in impact/ contact sports. Which leads on to the second point... that "athletes" usually have a desire to push on regardless and should usually be forced to take precautions because they are not in an unbiased position. You see it all the time in team sports too. "Were you knocked out".. "no guv", "doc did you see him knocked out"... "no I didn't have a clear view"... "right, as you were chaps". Zink is a particularly bad example as there was no getting around the fact he was knocked out pretty bad. The only definite is to be cautious if the rider was knocked out... everything else is keeping on top of mid to long term symptoms an extremely hard to asses. Don't be fooled in to thinking that a "full medical assessment" is anything sophisticated

Fear and Loaming: Practice One - Val di Sole DH World Champs 2016
@atrokz: I know people put copper paste on caliper bolts and nothing bad generally happens, but in theory copper paste should be used where you would grease a bolt (lever clamp bolts for example, outside face of ti chain ring bolts in alu cranks, etc). Caliper bolts should (again in theory) use loctite which both prevents it backing out and also corrosion. Like you say though, in reality you can use either and notice no negative effects. I strip my bikes down every couple of months so could probably even get away with nothing TBH.

There is no point.... These bikes aren't going to be racing 3 seasons and be left in a damp shed in between races... they'll most likely be used for one race and constantly rebuilt in that time. Mechanic is just being thorough although one could argue a caliper bolt should have loctite not copper paste applied (copper paste where you use grease, loctite a bolt if it needs loctite regardless of material)

@onemanarmy: The problem is a "full medical eval" for head/ neck injuries is next to non-existent. Zink pulling the giant 3 after knocking himself out at Rampage would be a prime example of riders pushing on regardless...

Absolutely! This is just a hardtail ride like almost everyone does (did?)... no XC about it for me

Your Essential Guide to the Val di Sole DH World Champs 2016
Everyone always seems to forget pros are humans, and humans who smash up their ankles may understandably struggle for pace/ enjoyment for a fair while afterwards...
