Final Results - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@Rusettipasta: if we can't get excellent DH coverage with the help of RedBull, it would be next to impossible to provide televised coverage of Enduro. First, Enduros aren't usually in established resorts like they are in DH, where in Enduro they are in some cases considered to be true back country tracks. Just look at most of the timing areas; in Enduro they are pop-up tents with 1-2 people tracking the time, where DH has Tissot come out and set up lasers and chips, etc. Second, there is one course in DH, so film crews have weeks to set up. In Enduro, the tracks aren't usually released until the last day or two, and they are covering 3-5 different tracks in a day and they are much longer than a 3-5 min DH race. To be honest, between PinkBike, Vital, and Dirt, we are extremely lucky to get the coverage we do. Lots of hard working folk out there doing the very best possible with the given locations and resources.

Florian Nicolai's Rocky Mountain Slayer - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@davidsimons: Graves has been quoted on multiple occasions he hasn't weighed his bike in some time. He sets it up the way he needs to to get the job done, and low weight is not priority.

Results: Timed Session and Seeding - Val di Sole DH World Champs 2016
Yes, but there isn't quali's for World Champs, so Timed Training is the only way for riders to see how they are stacking up before race day. So, riders do tend to push it more as opposed to normal timed training during the World Cup season.

Friday Randoms: Crankworx Whistler 2016
@choppertank3e: don't really think they "dropped" Danny. Seeing Danny and his spark fade through his time with Giant, I would presume it was his decision to look elsewhere. Any large corporate bike company uses their riders as a marketing tool, and bouncing them from one corporate event to the next. This tires and bores the rider, enough to suck out their drive to do better. Mitch Ropelato on Specialized is a fine example. They pushed so hard to have him ride what they wanted and you could see his results dwindle because he wasn't doing what he was most passionate about- Racing DH and Gated events, not Enduro on a 29'r. If that's really what he wanted, I'm sure he would be riding a Hightower and not a 5010.

Connor Fearon's Kona Brocess - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@mikekazimer: any idea of travel or does it come out to be the same as a 134? I'd have to imagine that with shorter stays the travel is less, but maybe the linkages are playing magic to bring those numbers back up.

@ctd07: Fox has a service form online to receive an RA. You'll send it to them for an evaluation, and if it's under warranty they'll set you up at no cost. If it isn't, they'll call you and ask if you would like a new CSU. They've been known to stretch the time frame for known issues with an era of product, and I've even seen upgrades to kashima a time or two. *This is for US only and don't know how or what may differ for anyone South Pacific.

@bike98826: IIRC Santa Cruz's wheels are not hand built. I do remember just a few months ago that bikes were being delayed because their wheel building machine was down. Hand built wheels aren't always better anyhow. Maybe by a well-experienced shop wrench, but I've put my hands on many of hand built wheels released by companies that out of round, aren't straight, and don't have a balanced tension. When you're building wheels as fast as they have to, mistakes are more likely to happen. Ie: Intense. Intense had hand built bikes for years, but many of them came crooked, out of tolerance, hub spacing too wide or too narrow. They starting buying bikes from overseas and now their QC (and warranty!) has seen a massive boost.
