MET Parachute - Review
As far as I know (I've read it somewhere, can't remember where), the main trade-off for the lighter weight and better ventilation with this helmet is it not being multiple-impact resistant. It meets the norms for DH helmets, so the first time you hit a tree head-first while wearing the Met, it should protect you just as well as any fully blown DH lid. But you should bin it after that ride. Doesn't make much sense for daily bike park abuse or regular DH racing, but I think it's a fair trade-off for endurobros who want to go lightweight (and who would probably just wear half lids if it weren't for the regulations).

MET Parachute - Review
Your point is really reasonable, but try to explain it to insurance companies. I'm willing to bet insurance is the main reason helmets must be worn on transitions between stages. It's the same as with helmet cams in DH. People go on about their conspiracy theories, but the fact is that any governing body in any sport, be it the UCI or the EWS, has to deal with assholes who are hell bent on finding a reason not to accept your claim.

The Battle to the Finish - Ablstadt XC World Cup
The men's distance was 34.36 km and the women's 30.16 km including start loops. I don't know the start loop's elevation gain, but within the main laps (220 m of climbing each) the men did 1760 m of ascent and the women 1540 m. Absalon's avg was around 22.8 km/h and Neff's more or less 18,9 km/h. TL; DR They're fast as hell. I've just compared that to one of my recent rides and I won't even quote it here because I'm embarrassingly slow.

The Battle to the Finish - Ablstadt XC World Cup
Excellent coverage! The racing seems to be so intense right from the start of this season. Love it. BTW, it's Maja, not "Mia" (the caption under Wloszczowska and Neff's photo). Keep up the good work.
