Jérôme Clémentz's Cannondale Jekyll - Enduro World Series 7
C'dale may just force him to, if they decide to drop 26" bikes from their AMSuperTrailEnduro lines like all the other manufacturers seem to be doing.

Sam Pilgrim is the 2013 FMB World Tour Champion
Funny how these FMB write-ups try so hard not to mention Semenuk... despite winning both crankworx, bearclaw's, and throwing down hard at X-Games. It's ok FMB, we all know who the best is.

Red Bull Rampage - Who Will Win The FMB Overall?
Semenuk has killed the comps this year, but he can't get awarded FMB points because he's not licensed/registered with them. Makes the overall title a bit silly IMHO.

Trek Remedy 9 29 - Review
Proof means undeniable, definitive results. EWS was dominated by Clementz and Graves on 26". World champs podium was all 26" ( seeding doesn't earn points... big guns take it easy ). The top Pro GRT rider has not been near a WC podium and got beat by 11 seconds at national champs by a 26". I've got nothing against 29ers or 650b... it's all horses for courses, and IMHO waaay more about the rider than wheel size. I'm sure the top Enduro guys will all gladly rip just as hard on their new 650b kit next year, but nothing at all has been proven yet in regard to the claimed inferiority of 26". No manufacturer wants to be perceived as being behind the curve, so we may never really know beyond what this season has already shown us: 26" is perfectly capable of hanging with, and more often than not, beating the larger wheels on true 'mountain bike' terrain.

Results: Men's DH World Championship
Perhaps not with Greg himself, but it seems pretty clear that big gains can be had by risking a smaller/lighter setup on the top of this track. Graves was 24th at split 1 and ended up with a bronze medal. Simmonds splits from 13th to 4th on his semi-slicks. And Despite Mitch's first corner crash, he still put in a very fast time in seeding on XC rims/tires.

Bearclaw Invitational - Top Three
The FMB overall thing is kind of anticlimactic this year.... Rheeder and Söderstrom both out injured, then Semenuk popping up to win both Crankworx and take 2nd at XGames, but he's not allowed to earn points.
