The UCI Integrates BMX Freestyle Park into its Development Strategy
This is what you wrote: "It's just a massive contradiction. Governments tell you it's illegal because it's bad for you. But it's banned in many sports. Why? Surely if it's bad for, you should get a head start or something. I call bullshit on at least one of those positions." So if this is your logic regarding performance enhancing drugs, what would you think of steroid users or guys who blood dope in cycling? Those things are clearly bad for you correct? So are you saying that you would give the steroid users and blood dopers a head start? Your logic is completely flawed. You are "calling bullshit" and saying that both positions (that a substance can be both bad for you and enhance performance) can't be true but everyone knows it is true, that both positions can exist. Is that the case for cannabis? I don't know and I don't really care. That's not the point.

The UCI Integrates BMX Freestyle Park into its Development Strategy
Do you not read what I write? I said I have no idea about the dangers or long-term health benefits of cannabis. Your original post here was talking about contradictions and asking how if something is bad for you, how can it also be an enhancer. I was simply pointing out that your logic was ridiculous, because everyone knows that many 'enhancers' like steroids are proven to be dangerous and terrible for you. I never said anything specific to cannabis. I was just pointing out your faulty logic.

"if it's a potential enhancer, why us it illegal?" The fact that you would even ask a question like that shows you have littke little knowledge on the subject of performance enhancing drugs. You need to disconnect the idea that performance enhancing Relates in any way to how healthy something is or how dangerous it can be.

If the UCI follows similar guidelines to the WADA and the Olympics then it shouldn't be an issue because unlike things like steroids, it's only banned 'in competition'. Meaning the riders just can't test positive for it on the actual competition days. As long as they aren't competing while high they are fine. The testing thresholds are now set so that someone who uses marijuana in the days or weeks prior won't pop a positive test.

Is weed against the rules in cycling? If so why? It's not a performance enhancer.

Pinkbike Poll: What will you be riding in the bike park this year?
I wish people would stop comparing the wheel size switch to other advances in bike technology. 26" wheels are not the same as things like rim brakes, rigid forks, quick releases etc. Those were clear cut advances in technology that proved to be far superior to their predecessors. 650B does not represent the same type of technological advancement. Its a wheel that's slightly bigger. That's not technology. It does not represent the same advancement and performance upgrade over 26" that something like hydraulic disc brakes provided over rim brakes.

Pinkbike Poll: What will you be riding in the bike park this year?
I've always said that the bike manufacturers would be smart to continue a to manufacture a 26" DH/Freeride model. I think for racing the 27.5 has some benefits but still think that most non-racing park riders (who make up a large portion of the DH bike market) would still rather a 26" model. Those riders are still going to want a burly, long travel 26" bike with dual crowns. Make the race bikes really race bikes. Bigger wheels, really slack etc. But also make a park focused "DH" bike. 26" wheels, not quite as slack for sharper handling and easier maneuverability etc. I could be wrong but there would still be a big market for these bikes. Not everyone is racing.

Pinkbike Poll: What will you be riding in the bike park this year?
I don't think this poll is really suggesting that the number of enduro bikes will equal the number of DH bikes on any given day. It won't. There will always be many many more DH bikes. You have to keep in mind that many of the voters in this poll are likely the type of riders noted in the article, that only visit the park a few times a year and will likely just bring their all mountain rig. But the actual crowd on any given day is going to be largely made up of regular riders (who will all be on DH bikes) with the non regulars making up only a small part of the crowd each day.
