Trailforks App Anniversary Update
@dfiler: trailforks works in airplane mode... as long as you have the state your visiting downloaded into the app, you can bring up the app and zoom in on the trail system your visiting for the first time and put your phone in airplane mode as your gps in your phone works and can pinpoint you at any time without a cell or data signal. Hence the reason Jason Bourne throw's out the simcard and phone to go off grid... haha

Trailforks App Anniversary Update
same with MTB project which has been around longer, and sometimes in different areas of the country has more data on certain trail systems. You can put your phone in airplane mode and still use your phones GPS. I do this on long backcountry excursions where I need one of the apps to navigate via GPS without my cell phone battery dying.

Trailforks App Anniversary Update
Before trailforks there was MTB project. Mtb project has some features that trailforks doesn't such as.. suggested routes and photos that pop up on the map so you can see the view and where it is on the trail. I've had many moments where I've known where I am just by doing that research on mtb project. But, I have also found the trailforks ride logs as a good feature to look at as well when planning a route. If Trailforks took just a few of those key features of mtb project it would definitely be the best trail APP out there. As I can still pinpoint gps location in mtb project so I still find myself using both for navigating unfamiliar territory. Pinkbike.. if you need someone to continuously add trails and new destinations into trailforks and give suggestions and feedback.. I will gladly take the job. :)

Ibis Ripley vs Ibis Ripley LS
@WAKIdesigns: true... My asrc is by far my favorite xc bike Ive owned. With really good descending skills you will literally lose only a few seconds on most downs that being said my team sponsor vittoria is making some crazy good xc tires that grip good and I have yet to puncture one. Not the lightest @700g for a 29er but they are strong and roll fast.. An extra 100g of tire weight is nothing on an xc bike if it keeps you from a DNF

Ibis Ripley vs Ibis Ripley LS
@WAKIdesigns: I've done similar testing. What I've found is that the 140/160 bike is faster on some short segments of trail, where as the shorter travel xc rocket will be faster over all for the ride. As in, average MPH throughout your whole ride. You may be able to bang segments faster on your 140/160 espcially if it's technical terrain, but the time you gain in an average 90-120mm xc race is considerable when reducing weight, suspension, and rolling resistance etc.. I think my "fastest" "trail" bike for segment times was the OG ripley as it blended lines pretty well...

Ibis Ripley vs Ibis Ripley LS
I have owned both. Ripley OG with 140mm fork (puts the HA around 68.5 which is a great balance IMO). I sold the bike looking for a more xc bike, and more of an enduro bike. I tried a pivot 429sl and that was ok. I also tried the following, actually I still have it and it is a great bike and built up right it's not gonna be much slower than a ripley. Now, I am on a yeti ASRC for xc and a yeti sb5.5c for enduro. Both are great at what they are made for and they blend lines but there is a clear separation. If I was looking at a clear one bike quiver it would be something like the following, yeti sb4.5, salsa horsetheif, or ripley. I rode everything with my ripley OG with 140mm fork that I have ridden with the following except for those steep DH lines where it's got the geo to keep you going but doesn't have enough suspension in the rear to hold a line on chunk. I could see a bike in the middle of all these would be the perfect fit for someone wanting to run an xc race and as a daily rider. Something with a travel adjust front fork from 120/140 that would change the head angle etc.. from like a 69 to a 67.5. The ripley OG with 140 fork is tough to beat for an all around bike... when looking at all these other options

Ending on a High: Finals - Vallnord XC World Cup 2016
I'm assuming Nino took the overall though? You'd think they would say something in the article...
