 It's all the same thing, mountain biking. How on Earth we ended up so thoroughly separating aspects of the same sport I'll never know. DH, XC, Enduro, Freeride, Dirt Jump...it's like the damn movie industry. Everything has to be in a genre box. Well I'd like to see some genre mix-ups. Could be some fun in that.

 maybe I am wrong but the initial idea of enduro was supposed to be like that, many disciplines on one event/activity... but the industry turned it in one more specific sport expensive to practice and impossible to really follow.
I love XC when it is more technical as the modern XC has been .

 Good courses have brought xc back from the dark days of slick tires and drafting in a peleton. Now dropper posts might take it to the next level. Digging the xc coverage Pb

 Only 1 man and 2 women from GBR - from a country that has such an influence on the DH world. Is it a chicken or an egg scenario?
