Snapshot: Examining the UCI's Changes to World Cup DH Racing
@dhx42: YES! USA ProGRT seems to have that going with all events being Class 2 and a Class 1 and Class HC... seems like riders can win their way up in points to get to WC... but i dont understand all the details since i dont follow closely this system. On the road, they did have a similar thing where the top ProTour teams could not even enter certain lower class races at all... that makes sense... but then only if there are a lot of races... and unfortunately, there are not a lot of races... and what races there are are not always UCI affiliated for a number of reasons... I am involved in enduro though, and the system there is very loose and designed to be easy to engage in... since Chris Ball was involved in UCI he does understand these issues and i am really happy that on that side of the sport we are taking steps to have something in place to avoid these kinds of issues altogether in the future...

Ibis Announces 2017 Enduro Race Team
@A-Ig: its really interesting that some people in racing are starting to think about what really it is that they are doing... as a bike industry person i have thought all the way down that same rabbit hole it boggles the mind... everyday i am on the front line of supplying the market with more things to buy and deal with the push of all the product managers who for one reason or another are reaching far and working very hard for both the next big thing and the critical mass of small incremental improvements that will push a bike over the edge into new territory and unlock mass consumer demand with all the waste and using of resource this entails at all levels of the supply chain... i even became a vegan for year because i realized that i didnt like the business of raising meat, and food processing, and i didnt like to be a part of the largest contributor of climate change... and i rode to work almost everyday... when you get there and understand how really everything is feeding the beast you can then see what sanctimonious bullshit Patagonia is... they are the same as all the rest... a commodity wrapped in the extra added unseen bonus that allows you to enjoy the commodity itself more thoroughly... but still just the same waste of real things as all the other jackets and clothing out there... just without the get-out-of-the-guilt-free-pass marketing bullshit... you just have to decide how you want to live and what is important to you and pursue that without losing contact with what really is a commodity and what is really a resource and whether or not its making sense to use that up... are you consuming according to need? or are we consuming purely for enjoyment and indulgence? how much of either is correct for an individual? you WILL consume for both reasons.. its not avoidable in modern society... being mindful about this is something that i think is great to see in more and more young people... as a child of the 80's we never thought in these terms... every modern efficiency brought on more consumption and we were getting ever richer because we had ever more we thought...

there are so many riders and so few good deals out there... if a rider wants something he needs to go chase it down, not wait around thinking its going to come to them... not surprised to see that he is knocking on doors... more riders need to go knock instead of waiting to see who seeks them out...

Ellsworth Announces Brian Lopes As Team Rider - Press Release
@Rubberelli: true. I am for the record the #1 Lopes fan... And even moreso the more i hear what a dick he is... He has always been professional and reasonable in my opinion... But yeah, I would like it better if he was warm and fuzzy, and deferential and bro'd out with me more and maybe asked me how I set up *my* x fusion suspension... And like let me try his trials moto, and let me ask him about his van for 45 mins... But you know it's ok that he isn't like that. I don't take it personally.
