Big thanks to the Hautes Pyrénées Department for making the Louron Valley an MTB paradise – the perfect training ground for these athletes.

 Gravity? Are they releasing a new DH bike?

 My guess is beefed-up Slayers

 @CarbonShmarbon: I'd take a slayer with a 200mm link. The current carbon slayer does have a forward shock mount that could in theory be swapped out for a different location. Pair that with a new link and maybe Slayer DH

 @kiddlivid: I'd jump onboard for that too actually! If they do something with that forward mount, hopefully its made available to the public so we can rep Rocky at some proper DH races.

 What are they racing on? It's been continually proven that throwing a dual crown on an enduro bike just doesn't cut it for World Cups.

 Proven by who? Dual crown for enduro makes much more sense than a Fox 38 or a RS Zeb!

 @tralebuilder: I think what he meant is that an enduro bike with a dual crown fork is not an adequate substitute for a dedicated downhill bike. Probably stemming from seat tube height, antisquat figures, and the intended level of frame flex. Though I'd enjoy hearing your justification for running a dual crown for racing enduro, seems like the pro riders even go for a 36 or a lyrik on some events

 @KolaPanda: Enduro is basically DH without the uplifts. A dual crown fork is stiffer and more precise especially when compared to a 180mm single crown. I suspect the main reason pros don't run a 160-180mm dual crown is because brands have to justify selling single crown forks.
