Greg Minnaar Injury Update
Blech. Hand injuries are the WORST and the risk of reinjury is high, and it's soooo frustrating to have a fully working body and a shit hand. Best wishes to Greg for a speedy recovery!

@meathooker... Ironically, that comment was not geared towards you. I know you've raced and I respect the hell out of both your racing and your perspective. You also were positive about your favorite racer, etc. For the vast majority of keyboard jockeys on here, however, that is the kicker -- they don't know (or care to understand) the time, effort or expense that goes into racing. There's a lot of negativity focused on women's racing right now; from equal payout to female sponsorships and beyond, we take a lot of shit, despite the obvious physiological differences and our giving every ounce of effort we can exert (and often beyond). So while you may be the exception to the keyboard jockey syndrome, there's still too much of it going around from people who would rather talk shit than get involved. We're doing our goddamned best to be our best, and pretending that there's a physical level between men and women is bullshit. We have to start recognizing individual value before things will ever be truly 'equal'. With that said, however, it would be really nice to log onto something like Pinkbike and not see the female riders getting shit on.

Super fun race to watch! The features were rad and created an interesting contrast between racers... Announcing wasn't bad, either. It was no Rob Warner, but thank fuck it wasn't two hours of 'bro down' discussion. Well done, CWX. Well done! Suns up. Time to ride.

So stop talking and do it already. Or sack up, quit the keyboard jockeying and jump into the fray with the men. It's seriously annoying to come on Pinkbike and read so many comments and entire threads like this when the WC women are giving it their all in a sport that doesn't exactly give back. Those tracks are huge, those women are still the top 1% of riders in the world, and you all have the balls the publicly insult the efforts?! Man. What a luxury it must be, to be part of the peanut gallery sitting on the sidelines, not doing shit but professionally critiquing. Well done, fellas. Well fucking done.

You need these. 15mm OR 20 mm front (endcaps are included), 12x142 rear. Spoke count is 32 on each wheel and Actual Weight: 1,920g. Recommended for all mountain/Enduro/whatever the hell you want.

Steve Peat To Have Knee Surgery To Repair ACL
Like the article says, he was doing a promo shoot when it happened. Also, offseason moto is one of the best ways to train for DH -- between the strength increases and the speed perception, you'd be shocked at what moto does for a rider.
