Hey, everyone has pain -- swollen knees SUCK! Definitely healing up, thank goodness; I'd almost lost my damn mind for a bit there. ;)

Yum, donuts! Haha. The elbow joint is sore and I chipped a bone (much to the doc's dismay that it didn't just shatter), but it's almost healed up now and some vitamins, rehab and sleep have done me good! Tomorrow's my first day back on the bike! :)

That depends on what carbon you're using, who you're talking to, and how the carbon was manufactured. I've found that carbon, when properly manufactured, built and maintained, is stronger than some alloy formulations. Mind you, there are a lot of conditions to that response. However, I honestly run ENVE because I go through fewer wheels/hubs/bikes/ERs that way. :)

Bitches Brew: Olympic Hope & Why Downhill's Inclusion in the Five-Ring Circus Is Important
Such an excellent comment, as always. You're totally right -- it's an integrity thing right now with the IOC, as it still is with the UCI. They've failed downhill at nearly every turn, and we have a massive decision to make right now as a sport: continue supporting corrupt, entitled governing bodies who control the very future of most sport as we know it, or jump ship and build our own? As the media begins to raise their voices in solidarity with the athletes and host cities who will no longer play ball with these awful entities, we still have to ask ourselves: is Olympic inclusion still something to chase? Unfortunately, the Olympic Games are still the largest sporting stage on earth, but is inclusion worth the cost? Will we sacrifice part of our soul to be part of the 'mainstream'? Currently, female tennis players are speaking out about the ITA and the IOC's 'gender testing' policy that has been performed on many competitive female athletes since the 70's to supposedly verify 'gender authenticity'. Will this infect cycling? Has it already? How far do these collective sport 'governing bodies' have to go before athletes and entire sport disciplines simply walk away from the organizations and their events? Will we ever?

The Taxco Urban DH is This Weekend
There was, although not enough women raced to warrant another separate race timing this year, I'm guessing.

They are -- and I'm glad for it! I'd hate to see what an alloy rim (or my face) would have looked like after this.
