 But if that is what I get if I order a Sender from Canyon, I’ll do that right away...

 From instagram it looks like Brendog was riding the non-prototype Gambler with a Fox 40... I think his Rampage bike?

 haha they could have atleast swapped out the number plate.
  • + 1
 Yeah when I saw the picture I was thinking "when did Fairclough switch to clips?" but then I realized it was the same bike.
  • + 3
 Do the riders show up and automatically put their cranks and wheels in the right position, or do you have to coach them? Eerie. Makes it tough to tell what tire model they're on.

 Jerome Caroli with the old mix and match. I imagine his rear triangle met a premature end.
  • + 2
 Was a bit confused when I saw Rat posting, bearing in mind he dropped monster as a sponsor and the opposition against energy drinks. Kinda makes sense that he’s not racing which is a shame for the event.

 Kaos could easily be mistaken for his sister in that pic

 I thought Tahnee was racing for a second....even looked for the long hair.
  • + 1
 LOL. I was literally writing the same thing and then went.... I should check to see if someone already did. HA! Looks like he's pulling her back up bikes and running them. I'm down with pink... but that's a lotta pink. Side note... Kade's bike hands down the sickest. If I was him I'd retire that sucker after this event and use it for wall art. Have Trek send him something not so sick. LOL.
  • + 1
 Don't be daft. They're sponsored by Muc-Off. This is the color it comes with. With all the love Cathro is getting these days, it seems people forgot he was riding a pink Orange bike for MTB-cut well over a decade ago, in a skin suit. And Sam Hill typically rode one round (partially) pink kit and bike, to be auctioned to fight breast cancer. You'd say people would have been over this kind of stuff by now. Kaos is a great rider in his own right. Must kind of suck to be constantly be compared to a sibling.

 The pink Transition win !!!! It make other bikes look bland
  • + 1
 Do all these guys run 29 inch wheels or 27.5? Just got into the big bike stuff from the BMX world and not sure what size these bikes are.
  • + 2
 It's a mix, differs from rider to rider.
  • + 3
 I’d love a Cathrovision track analysis of this ;-)

 Flo Payet's bike is enormous!
  • + 1
 All of these bikes are like clones or each other. Aside from the linkage area.

 Sorry but why is Josh (long live the rat ????) not on the starter's list?!
  • + 2
 May be his own choice, retired racer just there for the build up session.
  • + 5
 @jamesbriancrilly: yeah he’s just there to session the jumps and enjoy riding, he’s not that interested in being between the tapes and against the clock anymore- at least that’s what he told me last year
  • + 5
 Next time you see him, tell him to come back, because everyone wants him to!
  • + 9
 @jaame: yeah we do but he told me it was doing his head in, having all tech and gismos strapped to his bike and the travelling was just doing his head in , he said it wasn’t like it used to be and compared it to F1. He also said that Santa Cruz were really supportive of him when he quit and he just wanted to ride and promote the brand through social media edits, turns out it was a massive boost to the brand and him so everyone was happy, plus we get to see him enjoying life and more vids Salute

 He just posted this on Instagram:

Calling it a day here at #hardline !!! Got down safe in quali but conditions were gnarly and dont fancy another!!!! What a sick week, big jumps rule. Thanks @robwarner970 And @redbulluk For the opportunity.

 Session you mean?

 Were some of those 26, for some reason some of those wheels seem a bit small? But everything looks the same to me.
  • + 1
 That TR11 looks so much nicer with straight seat stays. The curve at the pivot joint always annoyed the hell out of me.
  • + 1
 Did Fairclough actually ride that bike or did he ride the standard Gambler which he was using all week for practice?

 RATBOY take that track!! Who cares if you’re not on the list!

 Why is Dan so angry?
  • + 1
 People used to ask that about Gee too. Those guys aren't angry. Though without knowing him, I believe Dan is probably happiest out riding, digging and sculpting and least happy statically posing for pictures.
