Pinkbike Poll: Re-cycling?
When I have old parts or frames that have reached their end they do go in the recycle bin, though I do wonder if those aluminium frames do get melted down with all the cans and foil. Carbon is making me a little less smug about being a recycler. They always get sold after a season so they are being reused, but should I have chosen aluminium instead?

And that mindset is why Palmer doesn't have a rainbow jersey. If he'd worn a skinsuit he would have beaten Nico at Cairns. I'd prefer to win and look stupid.

Off the top of my head, that 'titanium hammer' you've all heard about was used on the SR-71, which was made of titanium, so they needed a titanium hammer as any other sort would cause corrosion on contact.

Video: Gwin's Winning Run
wingguy, so what why wasn't Rachel penalised when she went through the tape at Fort Bill a few seasons ago? She most definitely re-entered the course many, many metres further down than where she left it.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
blast-off, you say you woke up in a tent in the backcountry, and your first thought was missing the World Cup? I'd prefer to see a spoiler and be backcountry than to not be backcountry at all.

Welcome, Pilgrims: Lourdes World Cup Trackwalk
