 "Terrain reading" - how do you learn that? How can you ride fast on a trail you have never seen, look far ahead and not die? Any particular skill drills or just a big baggage of experience and seeing thousands of trails and scenarios? Or surprise me Smile

 Yoann, What is the tittle of your next Brazzers film? Comparing you to all of the other EWS guys, you surely are getting jacked for your new role in front of a camera, rather than riding... Personally, I like the title, French Quadzilla.

 Please consider using vocal mics for these broadcasts... the audio quality is brutal...

 Hey, PB, thanks for doing these. I think they're really fun and informative.

For the next one, could you remind Cam to point the mic at the person who is speaking? He seems to forget from time to time and it's annoying to have the audio level fluctuate so much.

It would also help to put a bit of compression on the audio.

 Yoann, you replied to my question on instagram about possible future revisions to the Meta AM V4.2; and knowing that they are still a long ways off, I purchased a Commencal Meta v4.2. My question is this: as a fun loving rider, what are your thoughts on 29ers? I'd love to see Commencal utilize the same frame design as the Meta for a 29er, preferably with high/low flip chips, long reach and the ability to run 275x2.6 or 29x2.5 tires. Shave a few more ounces off the Meta's weight and I'd add another Commencal to my quiver.

 What do you find is the best way to speed muscle recovery after a grueling ride?
-Ice bath
-Stretching
-Beer
-Cardio workout with significant other
-etc...

 I seem to recall very recently seeing an article that cited tests and sciency stuff which said that ice baths are counter productive to muscle growth. Even thought they do lessen the pain and swelling.

 @es7ebanlv: So I've been doing it right all along by drinking beer and doing cardio with my wife Wink

 @es7ebanlv: as long as you wait at least two - six hours before entering the ice youre fine
  • 1 0
 @es7ebanlv: Yeah endurance sports are moving away from ice baths as its seemingly negligible but contact sports like rugby or arguably bikes if you had a massive crash and had to race another day... It fast tracks the recovery of bruising

 I'd say all of the above plus some CBD.
  • 1 0
 @slayerdegnar: Meh... I wouldn't go so far as to call CBD the same as selling "snake oil" but close...

If something is a cure for everything, it's a cure for nothing.

Not to say it has some benefits to specific individuals that suffer from epilepsy and others.. but as far as hem pushing CBD for anything and everything like muscle recovery to psychological disorders you should really think twice...

 @otto99: but then it completely defeats the purpose: to reduce swelling and pain.

 What do you think needs to happen to make 'Enduro' more appealing to video audiences? Logically Enduro is more similar and relateable to the kind of riding most of us do, yet DH and Slopestyle get all the limelight.

Enduro as most riding, is great live and I personally competed in the Ard Rock enduro last week, but we still see the majority of coverage for DH

 Tell us about your bike setups. It looks like a fine line between performance and durability in EWS races, what risks and compromises do you make when you compare an EWS setup to an ideal typical setup?
  • 1 0
 For all: Obviously racing is really important, but we can all watch the videos, read interviews, etc. How do you make the most of your downtime? What fills your day when you aren't training or on the bike?

 Katy-sitting at work here in Waterloo, it's been awesome seeing you progress this year! Have you made any changes to setup or is it you gaining more experience that has put you on such a tear?
