Last Call - Eliot Jackson Interview
It´s soooooo refreshing to read an interview with a mountainbikerider that is actually able to use the english language in all it`s extent. Delightful!

Pinkbike, please make an article about enduro specific protection. A lot of the racers (Clementz e.g.) wear some kind of back and elbow protection, besides the odd knee pad. I think we have seen every bicycle they ride in finest detail, but I´d be more interested in protection that enduro racers wear. cheers

Crash Video: Taylor Vernon Goes Down at Val di Sole
Think of this headline the other way: "17 year old breaks his back in bike racing" I don`t get why they wouldn`t make back protection mandatory, at least at the Juniors!

On Safari - Fort William Practice Photo Epic
And Pugin is riding for Gstaad Scott and not Lapierre, apparently the matching rider must be Ragot.

Video: The Comeback - Documentary
I don´t get, why top racers don't wear back protection? Ok, Emanuel does now, but does everyone have to go down that road before they come to senses? I ride DH for fun - no races - and I find my protection vest uncomfortable, goofy looking, but not restriciting and I wear it. It´s a small price avoiding injuries like that one.

Why No Y?
I don`t know if this has been mentioned in one of the comments before but I´ll write it anyway. One of the barriers into the mountaibiking universe in my opinion is nature - as the surrounding we exercise the sport in. To my girlfriend, who is a sporty but not athletic type (no group sport or competition background) riding a mountainbike is fun. And I do enjoy spending bike-riding time with her. Also because I´d do it anyway but also because it´s great to do the things you love but greater to do it with loved ones. No argues there - be it friends or family, boy-/girlfriends or wifes/husbands. But since she started the sport only recently with the age of 27 she is really intimitated by roots and rocks on trails. And I get it. Other than skiing - where falling obviously results in a dampend impact - falling on rocks undoubtely hurts. And therefor she is scared even on rocky uphills and I don´t have the patience for long to try to persuade her to do it again, find easy trails and so on. Because I do the sport for 15 years and in this time I gained skill, confidence and musclepower that can´t be transfered that easily to a beginner in an intimitating surrounding.

Cedric Gracia blasting on a 29er
I don`t get the industry argument. They won´t sell more bikes, just different ones. Next year 50% of the people on this page will get a new bike, regarless of wheelsize or travel developements - won`t we? If 29ers will be faster on a DH track one day, than one guy will figure that out, use the advantage and win races. If not - than they will never enter the gravity market? Why? Because thats what true racers do - find a way to be faster than the one next to you. jm2c
