Press Release: Misspent Summers

Hurly Burly 4, the 2019 downhill World Cup and Championships yearbook, is on sale now.

Our roving reporters and renowned photographers followed the entire World Cup and Champs season to document its every up and down — the injuries, the victories and all the flat-out racing in-between — and seal the year into one 228-page tome.

The book covers the entire 2019 season of UCI Downhill World Cup racing and the UCI Downhill World Championships. Hundreds of the best photographs sit alongside reports, comment and analysis from a group of experienced writers, capturing every moment of action and drama from the series and Champs.

This is our fourth edition of Hurly Burly, and we’d like to thank every person who has bought, read, talked about, or even just heard of our books.

 Sad part is we will look back in this book 10 years from now and think "How did they even ride those terrible bikes? The geometry is terrible."

 Doubtful. We don't look at moto from the early 2000s and say that. Things are plateauing.

 Not likely, bikes look like are getting to a point where they actually work now. You dont look at parts on a dh bike from early-mid 2000s and think 'how did we ride that sh*t' because I think that is when components got to a point where they actually started to work well ~ you might look at a bike from the 90s & think differently.

 Prediction, there is going to be a new wheel size between 27 & 29" in the next few years, just to annoy everyone. & will be developed by spesh, because, because it sounds like something they would do.
There is a big difference in wheel size visually with these mullet bikes. & as a 6'3" person I would happily ride something a touch smaller than 29" even if just on the rear.
