Brandon Semenuk: The Liaison Series - Video
Gotta admit I was a little disappointed that the urban seggy was so short. Semenuk pulling old school urban freeride would be a sweet edit in itself.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Should a Top DH Racer Be Paid?
It has little to do with calories but more the impact alcohol has on your physical abilities to train, recover and grow muscle while eroding mental alertness (for days after consumption).

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Should a Top DH Racer Be Paid?
1. Too many players still in the manufacturing side. With so many brands the industry revenues are split too widely to allow for large sponsorship deals like those seen in sports where there are fewer players. 2. Digital advertising is not yet valued by the marketing industry at the same level as TV spots and or brand placement visible during broadcasts. This is unfortunately due to an industry hell bent on keeping itself relevant far beyond its time. 3. Non-MTB companies still don't recognize the cross-branding opportunities with MTB. Volvo has dabbled, as have other brands, but a broader scope of advertiser appeal will increase the overall size of the pie that riders can carve into for themselves. 4. My understanding is that level of time commitment for top pros in other sports is significantly higher than MTB... far more intense race schedules and much more marketing activity like fan meetings, appearances, special events, etc that come with being a brand ambassador. Much of the work top sponsored athletes put in is nowhere near the track. If today a top MTB racer is making $200k salary and is still getting the regular perks of sponsorship - gear, discounts, subsidized travel and living expenses while competing... then I'd have to say they're doing damn well to be paid in the top 5% of the world and would instead start to ask why the pay pyramids of other sports are so skewed.

Steve Peat Announces Retirement From World Cup Racing
The post-race party at the last event of next year's WC is going to be absolutely insane... Peaty's farewell party, I can only imagine this will be the party of the decade in MTB history.

Fox Racing Shox Acquires Marzocchi
They acquired "certain assets" and expect to reach broader price points. So they're more likely picking up product lines that allow them to have more presence in low and mid range bikes (under which brand is tbd... they may not have bought it). Fox can grow revenue, share, etc and the remaining assets of Marzocchi either die or are now more attractive to certain buyers... shedding what some may consider a less-than-desirable line and gaining cash to even out the books.
