Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR - Review
I had the old aluminum Mondraker Foxy. I thought it felt sluggish while pedaling, but it was alright, not too bad. At High speed descends it was really good and I felt really confident on it, but when speeds were slower I also felt like it was really harsh and didn't have any grip. I tried a lot with the shock, but couldn't really get it to work better. I didn't have to deal with it very long though, as the cage around the shock cracked... well it was more of an explosion, all 4 rods were completely bend and broken. The trail was pretty technical and had some rocks, but just usual stuff, not too wild and I didn't do a big huck, it just came out of no where. Well, now I've got a Banshee Spitfire (old version), it has 10mm less travel, pedals way better and feels like 20mm more on the descends, I couldn't be more happy! I like how the new Mondrakers look, but I don't think I'll ever buy one again. If it would have performed better, maybe, but the overall experience was just too bad.

Really really good! Reminds me of the British movies from a few years ago, like Made and Foot out Flat out. Probably even better editing and quality, but the riding ist really good, too! I'll watch Sezon 2 tomorrow :)

GT Factory Racing Add Bell, iXS and Jeep as Sponsors
I don't think so, there are worse riders in big teams and he seems to be pretty good at developing equipment. Also he has at least as much, or more exposure than his siblings and still has good results when fit. All in all, they are a pretty good package and probably work better together than other teams ever could. But you managed to get instagramed by insta_mtbrealtalk, so congrats to that!

Enduro World Series Teams 2015
Voullioz hasn't been a major DH rider for quite a while, just like Barel or CG. Blenkinsop, Peaty, Minaar, etc. all raced a few Enduro races last year, that's not special. What's special is that CRC has partnered up with PayPal... that could be a big deal!

I guss that just means, that the CRC DH team is going to be at a few events, I don't think Hill or Gwin or any other major DH rider will switch to enduro!

Pinkbike Awards: Best Value Product
At least nobody is going to say they bribed pinkbike to win the award, as they are such a small company. I have no experience with One Up, but I guess it's a fair award :)

Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year
It doesn't have to be about money, mostly it's about other "interests". For example, Fox could have promised to have more banners and commercials on pinkbike, or to send them more equipment, etc. The same applies to every magazine out there, just look at Dirt and their favourite make YT, who just happens to have tons of commercials in every magazine. But to say this happened here, or happened at Dirt or any other magazine would be speculation! I'm pretty sure this happens a lot, but that's how this business runs, and even though I don't agree with this award at all, I don't really care, and pinkbike has a lot of good articles and features, so as long as nobody has proof, I would really hold back with any accusations!
