 not intending to troll or anything, pure curiousity: is anybody running 650B (or even 29??) in the 4x pro tour? or the bigger wheel is significantly slower at the start for such short race? I would like a coverage of bikes at 4x tour

 I haven't ever seen anyone on the bigger wheels, I guess there's no need for them because most of the tracks is not too rough and the bike should be possibly easy to manouver, although I haven't tried the 29er yet... Wink

 Nah, in 4x you need as quick a start as possible, no one would use something other than 26

 They would use 20" or 24" if they were allowed. 4X is just slow BMX racing.

 Correction: 4X is Manlier BMX racing

 Man, I'd forgotten how fun 4x can be to spectate. Thanks for putting this up, and keeping comin'.

 a big reason why I believe it was a stupid move by the UCI to not run it along side the downhill!!! It was always so much fun to go and watch and it just added more a show element to each racing round... not to mention more exposure for the manufacturers... Bring it back to the main UCI series!

 At first I thought that it was a Google ad that came on the screen at the beginning of the video...

 Was that big jump an option that jumped the other line? Best 4x course I've seen yet. I've missed 4x hopefully some new rivalry's will develop to compare to Lopes vs Graves. The battle for second in the men was a great race.

 If we had some tracks like this in the US 4X could be successful and as popular as in Europe. It is such a blast to race 4X !

 4x is the only form of mountain bike racing where there are more than two riders on the track during the same run. I know I would love to see some head to head downhill racing!
