 Dear Canyon,
I know you are busy deleting vowels in press releases, making ever increasingly weird gravel bikes and chopping off unicorn tails. But I would be absolutely thrilled if you could spare a few minutes for updating the Lux. See, my Nerve CF is long overdue for a replacement and I'm starting to get desperate by now. Desperate enough to seriously consider the wildly overpriced Epic EVO, Scalpel SE, Blur TR, etc... I don't ask for much. No hidden shocks inside the frame or anything like that. Just copy the "longer, lower, slacker" DC thing everyone else is rolling with and the classic Batman color scheme. Thanks.

 The course looks fun. It would be cool if some municipalities made some directional XC tracks like this with technical features. These type of tracks are really non-existent.

 I love listening to Laurie when she rides. She makes it sound so fun.

 Looks like they are havi g a good time. Their suspension setup is so stiff, you have to wonder why not just use a hardtail with a 100mm fork. I don’t think I ever saw that fork get more than 1/2 travel.

 Maybe it’s set up for actual race pace and not an easy spin around the track?

 Disagree, the O-ring is about 0.5" or less from the top, so some spare travel for the really big hits at higher race speed.

 These women do on a XC bike what 90% of PB commenters "need" an enduro rig for.

 That course is more gnarly then all of the "enduro" trails we have around here.

 I don't understand. Isn't this race over? Is there a second round at Les Gets?
