Is This Adjustable Stem Ingenious or Unnecessary?
i admit to seeing the benefit, and to have actually wanted a longer stem in some long climbs that cold switch back to 50mm at the top...

Fox Racing Shox Acquires Marzocchi
So far as I can tell, reading between they lines, fox bought some assets and this may or may not include the brand name. I suspect it doesn't include the name, and with the more interesting technology bought by fox, marzochi has no way to continue. My guess is that it's over.

Video: This Crash Couldn’t Stop Nicholi Rogatkin - Red Bull Rampage 2015
I am amazed at how little of the money that flows through at the top level at events goes to the riders. As a roadie we raced for 10,000 to top 20 all summer as our everyday normal event. I bought a house with the money and renovated it cash. These comps have a way to go. I wish so much for fest series to come up as a rider owned business that does it correctly.

Pinkbike Poll: Should All Competitors Be Compensated at the Red Bull Rampage?
i did a car commercial once... it advertised a car and reinforced the brand of that car... the entire production was a cost and generated no income on it's books... i still got paid a buttload of money... and money was made down the line for the company in increased goodwill that likely generated sales... it was fair...

Pinkbike Poll: Should All Competitors Be Compensated at the Red Bull Rampage?
no doubt.. pay up... i once did a redbull event and was treated very well and got all expenses covered... but not paid a fee to start... this was for a TEST event... sad to hear that a major event like rampage is not paying riders and crews, because clearly they know better... I was talking to one of the riders who has ridden some FEST events and that for/by riders thing has a lot of potential to be done correctly and offer both fans and riders something special as well as become a business model that shares the resources and profits equitably and builds value for everyone... its obviously needed..

Ha. Yes. And at least in my neck of the woods, the hobbyist dads are close to the racers on strava, and the racer dudes show respect for the old men.

Opinion: EWS Practice
It becomes a question of how far do people want to give their lives to this one discipline and one race series just to win? - Dan Atherton... In high level sport, this didn't just become the question. It's always been the question. EWS isn't going to remain gentleman's racing. For the riders it's already serious and Dan's question is being answered every day on and off the bike for the top riders. For the organizers, it's a question of honoring the commitment to the sport that the riders are making. The more committed riders an event has the higher the bar to meet in honoring their sacrifice. If the organizers view it in this way, it's a good perspective for the future.
