1 Question - What Would You Like to See as the Future of Practice for Enduro Racing?
I used to be pro blind racing for the obvious reason - ultimate test to read terrain adjust your pace and bike handling skills. Now that I´ve raced a few races within a series I changed my opinion. What in theory sounds great, just isn´t applicable because of: A) - safety reasons!!!: No sign can explain "be aware of the river gap, wich is easy when hit with the right amount of speed as long as you jump to the right, because else you´ll hit a tree" within a fraction of a second when you`re racing by. Actually this should be enough reason to NOT RACE BLIND. B) - local trails: Enduro is (at least to me), racing local trails in the surrounding of the race-venue. Some might be bikeparktrails, some trail-area-trails, some secret-trails on private land, and some might even be built overnight for high profile races. BUT YOU CAN´T BUILD TRAILS for 5 stages, every year at 8 to 10 venues, that none of the racers have ridden before. Also this point is sufficient for me to understand that blind racing doesn`t work. When one accepts that point you have to regulate training - or course re-con. I don´t think this is either controversial or difficult. IT JUST HAS TO BE AGREED UPON - AND ANNOUNCED PROPERLY!!! So work to do for chris ball and rider representatives(ellected). There can still be room for varying race-/training formats just like the current series venues. As long as regulations are in place and ways to execute them are provided according to terms that are agreed upon.

Spotted: OneUp's ultralight chain guide and 11-speed cassette - Crankworx Whistler, 2015
look here: 77designz built their freesolo a while ago and it works perfectly. It`s lighter too Apparently in CAD its close to 70, wich is a lot Still It´s a small company just like OneUp and they came up with a good idea and built a solid product. Let´s face it, we all gave way too much money to coorporate companys without complaining before. So supporting the little and inventive businesses with a little more money than a quickly forgotten night out isn`t the worst thing.

Pit Randoms: Samoens EWS
Excuse me pinkbike, what are you telling us with that: " Nicolas Vouilloz is a big fan of his E-bike for training."? Does he - in all honesty - train on the ews course using an ebike, where everybody else uses a musclepowered bike? Clarification please! And if so there should be STRONG oposition to that.
