Testing With Team Specialized Gravity
It wasn't muddy, trails were not damaged. If you want to keep sectet trails on the DL it might not be so wise to post that they are illegal on the Internet. No one mentioned trail names or locations in this article, so you are just posting speculation.

@bernbern I'm sure lots of people are enjoying it. I would't gauge it's worth by the handful of internet trolls who think they are cool trendy and funny to bag on Specialized. Just like the Enduro and Gee haters, their shtik is really starting to get tired and old. It's a shame that the lowest common denominator of internet A-holes feel the need to speak about something they really have no understanding of. It is disrespectful to the riders (one of which is the world champ), their mechanics and support staff as well as the brands who live and breathe for development and racing. Not to mention the people behind a website like Pinkbike and the contributors who work exceptionally hard to bring these kind of stories to the masses, and for free.

@adrenna, I believe the XC team not the DH team was registered as a trade team and therefore got all the perks in regards to pit size and placement. At WC's where both XC and DH were being held Troy and Aaron simply pitted out of the factory XC setup. Not 100% certain that's how it went down but definitely something similar.

Photo of the Month - January 2016
Number 1 is a dirt road used by heavy machinery to access the ski hill. A hill in which they were completely digging up to build a wider ski trail, hence the surface being covered in 4" of dust. Chill out.... Not every photo of roost and dust means poor trail etiquette.

2015 Photo of the Year: $10,000 Cash Prizing
haha, says the guy that sells 8x10's for $25 Not sure where everyone gets their info as to what rates MTB photographers get paid vs other industries. Sure there are brands in every industry who take advantage and photographers in every industry who allow it, willingly or unwillingly. There are also MANY brands and photographers who operate on a very high and respectful level. It comes down to valuing your own work, and also valuing who you wish to work with. From my own experience (not sure actual experience is allowed in the comments section) as a commercial photographer, who also happens to shoot a whole ton of stuff for MTB brands, I can assure you MOST are great clients to work with. And I know I certainly don't work for "chump change"

Loic, Loris and Finn on Specialized for 2016
That's not exactly how being the title sponsor works.
