I read that in Cairns a spoke broke and pierced the liner not a rock strike. Insta post from Greg if I remember right.

Look like his tire blew off to lose him the overall.

This is racing? Equipment performance and function is part of racing. A mechanical or flat doesn't rob anyone of anything.

While I agree with that comment, I think it fails after it becomes a constant issue.


How many tire issues have we had in the past two World Cup seasons? Getting to be a joke. So rarely is there another fault. Whenever I am watching the stream and someone is on a heater, I don't say "just don't crash" it's "hope the tires stay on".

Tires have always been the week link in mtb racing it's not new at all.

Makes the racing shitty. Where you don't win, you just don't lose.

Need new flat pedals.. what's the best i can get for my moneys? Relatively thin, lightweight, very very grippy and most importantly reliable.

Having the same decision to make.

Between vaults, horizon pros and burgtecs for me. Burgtecs are £100 opposed to the £60-£70 you can get the others for, so i'm leaning strongly towards the horizons since i've had durability issues with vaults in the past.
