Results: WC XCO Round 3 Nove Mesto - Finals
Bob is correct. It's anerobic fitness and strength vs more leaning towards cardiovascular endurance. Pretty much all the guys racing DH and taking it seriously are very, very fit. It's just a different requirement, but don't think for a second that even a local elite DH racer won't smoke you on climbs. Erik, that would be neat. Just one, not too long, but would be neat to watch. That said, the liaison stages are still pretty draining from what I've heard.

XC Bike Checks: 4 World Cup Race Machines
That first bike is a perfect example of why a lot of these guys walk through tech sections. Talk about an absurd set up dedicated to just climbing. Nino's bike looks bang on par for the course and his results show he knows how to set up a bike.

Rider Perspective: The Direction Is Finally Clear for World Cup XC
I agree with you. They could have and should have. It's really a no brainer. And I doubt she'd disagree judging by actually watching her race on them. 650b would be a perfect fit.

They just hung onto 29ers because that's what they wanted to sell. I would wager that she was asked to ride a 29" bike for marketing reasons, even though they had to manipulate things to get it to even work. I think we will see an improvement in her performance when she gets back onto a bike she actually fits on without the aid of negative rise stems, weird seat placement, etc. Think of it this way, if your GF/Wife/Mom/Sister went to go get a bike fitted, was 5'2" tall, and came back with a 29" bike with those tweeks, you'd storm back to the shop to put your boot up the fitters backside. This is no different.
