1 Question - The Biggest Mistake That's Been Made In Mountain Biking
"Progression" is the worst thing to happen to mountain biking. It has put people who enjoy a sport in a pit and made them argue. Fueled by the likes of pinkbike articles around 26 v 650 v 29. E bikes v normal bikes. 9 speed, 10 speed, 11 speed. Nothing bit positive reviews of the new, insinuating that the old is no longer any good. There have been some great introductions. The clutch mech, narrow wide.... all small changes to existing compatible tech and not the push to get riders to spend their hard earned on new wheel sizes, new frames, complete new drive trains or even a bike with a motor. We should keep MTB simple, making to many options with lots of misinformation just confuses the masses. Road did it right when they started the revolution and set the rules in stone. CX do it right. Therules are set in stone. It's just MTB where we are not big enough for the governing bodies to care too much where we keep introducing unnecessary change for the sake of sales figures.

DH World Cup 3 - Leogang Preview and Track Walk
I wonder how the changes will work with the weather... it's only set to get worse. New sections are great but 2 tracks in 2 weekends with new sections of dirt to roots before a monsoon...

Crash: Josh Bryceland Goes Down at Fort William
This part of the track is downhill and technically difficult. Not flatter over big table tops. Fort bill woods are to be feared for sure. Many of us joey racers have done the same thing in those woods and more than once. Think I have hit most trees in those woods in different races.

EWS Official Video: Wicklow Highlights. Rd 2, Emerald Enduro, Ireland
Won my first one. Won the dh. Won the enduro. Was right up there in the xc. Won the overall. Kinlochleven would have been better if the timing had worked and I never caught 16 riders. will stick with dh until I am too old then maybe migrate to enduro when I get all scared :)
