Video: Follow JC Part 2
Great to see JC getting a bit more exposure this year rather than just being "that guy who won again" :)

EWS Race Report - Chile
The hobby thing is nonsense. The majority of guys racing EWS have to hold down a job to pay the bills and only the select few at the very top get enough support to focus full time on racing. MTB in general is a very amateur sport when you consider the money on offer even to the top guys and tiny winners cheques. Somewhere like the UK is blessed with ridiculously fast gravity racers and has a pretty big Enduro following but no Brits in the top 20 either as far as I could see. A bit rough giving the German's a hard time with no real gravity pedigree for a long time. The Brits and US should be the one having to answer questions not the German's ;)

I'll happily admit I've a face like a bulldog licking piss off a stinging nettle but the way he talks and the overall maturity that comes across combined with how he looks would suggest someone ten years older. Not just a look thing, but part of an overall impression on the maturity beyond his years. I was genuinely surprised he is 26 and always thought he was early to mid 30's!

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
I have 0.5 stretch on my XX1 after 50 hours use (21 XC rides). I'd be surprised if the chain had not been changed several times in 8 months, otherwise you'd imagine the cassette won't be too happy...

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Got to agree with you mikekay. XX1 is okay but far from perfect. The cable tension is very fickle, needing constant adjustment and the performance in the mud is nothing on my XTR 10 speed

Interview: Justin Leov
The Atherton's are the only ones I recall pictured actually running them on their DH bike (SRM). There might be more users out there in DH since products like Stages came on to the market which are much more discrete...

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Review: It looks the same as XX1, it functions the same as XX1, XX1 is 30-40g lighter, XO1 is about £40 cheaper for the customer but makes SRAM more pennies because it is cheaper to manufacture. Summary, come on cheapskate, why didn't you pony up the extra for XX1 ;) PS: XX1 isn't as perfect as we first claimed (chain drops, occasional grinding feeling, poor chainline) but we'll hide the points to be improved upon in an XO1 review. ;)

The more I hear Gwin talk and describe how he approaches things the more I am warming to him. As Waki said in another post, it is hard to like someone who wins all the time and generally people root for the underdog, but nevertheless I think the quiet, (non-stop winning) Gwin was a touch hard to get behind. It's great to hear him talking through his thoughts on the place, the runs, etc and not something we saw too much of in the past

I was thinking the same :) Poor guy has 10 years more in his appearance
