Second Round Prize
May 16, 2021 // Nove Mesto, Czech Republic

The winner of the second round will walk away with SRAM's AXS Dropper Post. No hoses. No routing. No energy wasted. Not a single thing in the way of the experience.

Expanding what's possible on a bike, Reverb AXS is enabled by SRAM AXS technology, a new level of interaction, personalization, and connectivity across all AXS enabled components.

IMPORTANT: Teams created after May 7, 2021 will not be eligible to backlog points that riders would have accrued from previous races but you will still be eligible to win incredible prizes from Rockshox and SRAM each race.

 The one electronic upgrade for a MTB that has to make the most difference and improvement. Nice!

 @Sam-kerins: Because it’s so much more fun having to hammer out the press fit bottom bracket to route the dropper hose?

 @magnusc: I also find it more fun to constantly think about charging stuff. Rather than installing a cable once.

 Great to be able to easily swap it out for a rigid post when doing a race with less technical stuff, and the possibility to easy swap it from bike to bike, and never have to worry about cable freezing and getting stuck ruining my winter ride.

 I'm going to assume you are excluding a GPS/smartphone, which has definitely changed MTB far more than a dropper by opening up worlds of new trail access/discovery.

 Aww I'd love to win! Last round I picked 2 riders who didn't even start! :-S

 They need to remove Florian Vogel from the listings. AFAIK, he's retired from racing and the Performance Manager for Specialized Racing now.

 Way to much work, going to ride instead.

 The system and scoring is flawed. Because you are given son little money you get to choose one good rider and a few no hopers. Its a lottery to how many no hopers do better than the rest. If you gave everyone more money they would pick more of the top riders and itd be more of a judgement about who wiuld finish in which place. Everyone would score higher but itd be more pertinent who finished in which position. Same with DH Its boring just picking one top rider and having a guess at best of the rest. We all know top 5 is really between say 10 riders.

 you had enough money to pick 3 of top 5 for both men and women last time

 Is there anyone who won't have pidcock on their team?
  • 2 0
 Less climbing might not be in Pidcocks favour.
  • 9 0
 Is ther anyone who won't have Koretzky, Lecomte an Batten on their team ?
  • 1 0
 Because you don't have to change your body mechanics hundreds times a ride to lower your post. So no, not sarcastic

 Martins Blums finished 32 in ME, not on the list for 3 years. Arnis Peterons not riding for 3 years, on the list.

 What happened to Victor Koretzky going from winning his first world Cup to not in top 20?

 I don't like this very much
