Opinion: We Need A Cyclocross...
Less time watching Red Bull TV means more time getting out and riding. That said there are some decent winter XC/Marathon events in the UK - the most insane being the Strathpuffer (which I've never done). I suppose for event organisers the possibility of ice, or snow, on the roads (or the course) is a big variable affecting the turn out, and therefore the potential sponsorship etc, not to mention emergency service access. And with DH races could affect uplift availability. There's also the extra environmental impact which could limit the venues and routes available. As far as I can tell Cyclocross races, with a couple of exceptions, are generally just riding round a muddy field in a not too remote location. So this stuff is less of a problem

Video: Jumping The Tour De France
Indeed, Sagan's wheelie at the bottom of the Ventoux looked cooler than this.

Take The Rebecca Rusch Challenge
The voice over was a bit "self help", but great to see a high quality video focussing on the adventure aspect of MTBing. XC riding can make for exciting videos when the ride and the rider are interesting enough

Doping: Crime and Punishment?
MTB should learn from the mess that road cycling frequently gets into. Alberto C*ntador being a case in point. He rode the 2011 TDF while being investigated for doping the previous year. Everyone knew there was a good chance that he was guilty yet he was in the hunt for the yellow jersey for a large part of the race. Finished 4th (IIRC) then was immediately served a 2 year ban, but because it was backdated he was back straight after the 2012 tour. Long bans, not backdated, zero tolerance on excuses, bans while the case is being heard. Doping is a problem in all sports. If competition is important then people will bend the rules, so it's no use sweeping it under the carpet and saying "why do we have to care about this roadie nonsense in mtb" Sponsors play a part too. Has this guy been dropped by his sponsors?
