Nico Vink's New Signature Line at Ch√Ętel Bikepark - Video
@NorthernMatt: When I was there earlier this year the tracks were appalling. Seems like all the work had gone into making this and the reboul jam.... Shouldn't be making new lines if they can't maintain what they have surely?!

EWS Round Four, La Thuile, Italy - Final Results
agreed. look at triathlon vs iron man, the silverbacks have the years of training and experience in metering effort, the youth have the power output. Enduro has to value experience and risk management over risk taking and power output. obviously there are going to be exceptions! Rude is a monster, who seems to have learned from his elders and manages his risk better now. his first seasons though he either won the stage or crashed! seems to be a fair example

EWS Round Four, La Thuile, Italy - Final Results
@WAKIdesigns: your second comment is just making my point for me?! you keep a higher average speed by making the slowest sections as fast as possible, and not wasting energy trying to push hard on the faster section. not to mention here he makes a place up - giving him a clear run to hit the next (presumably DH) section. accelerating out of corners will be fractions of a second here and there, hammering a mid length climb like this could be 10s. it's a principal in TT riding, make the slowest corners fast as possible, push hardest on the climbs as its more effort for less reward to increase the speed proportionally when you're already close to the limit. slow down less, don't speed up more.

@WAKIdesigns: completely wrong approach to racing. you put the most effort in to go fastest on the slowest sections. look at ratboy! it's a well known approach to timetrialling. when everyone else is going 10mph you go 12 you're doing 20% faster than everyone else and you make considerably more time. when they go 30mph, putting in the same effort may still only get you 2-5mph, nowhere near the same benefit. effort on the fastest sections is marginal gains, effort on the slowest sections is money in the bank.

Jerome Clementz's Prototype Cannondale - EWS Round 3, Ireland
Rode a habit SE the other day, conventional works really well for cannondale! absolutely stamps all over the trigger, just because of the weight difference, equivalent build is at least a kg, maybe 1.5 lighter!?

Enduro vs Trailbike: Marriage and Divorce - Opinion
short travel trail bike and DH bike, not too much travel for the everyday local trails, and enough travel for the big trips.
