Specialized to Close its Website this Friday in Support of Global Climate Strike
@Porchdick: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner. Still waiting for that Ice Age these same schumcks promised us back in the '70's. BTW, it was warmer during the Renaissance than it is now. The greatest wealth redistribution scam in the history of scams.

5 Things We Learned at Snowshoe XC World Cup 2019
@showmethemountains: I think you're right about that being his focus in the future but he's been around most of this year. Albstadt - DNE (Did Not Enter) Nove Mesto - 116th Vallnord - 83rd Les Gets - 94th Val Di Sole - 47th Lenzerheide - DNF Mont St. Anne - DNE Snowshoe - DNE Ever since that crash at the Cape Epic he hasn't been the same on a MTB. May be the best thing he can do for himself.

Final Results: Snowshoe XC World Cup 2019
@COnovicerider: IMPO, Annika's problems were of her own making. After winning the Cape Epic and both of the Sea Otter XC races she did 4 100km+ road races. Three of them in April alone. (Amstel Gold Race - Apr, La Flèche Wallonne Féminine - Apr, Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes - Apr & La Course by Le Tour de France - Jul. She also rode the Strade Bianche WE in March. That has got to take a toll. Again, IMPO, if she wants to get back to the top tier in 2020 she going to have to back off of the road racing.

@BDKR: I chatted with a couple of people who were there and they said relatively the same thing, One who has ridden there said " the grass sections are like riding over a bunch of baseballs half buried in the ground". The speed of the race was quite something to watch. A nice change, I do enjoy wondrous variety. So, while the track was not spectacular to look at it did make for some good close quarters racing

Need to add Lars to the great comeback list of 2019. Good to see him back. If you watched the 2019 Cape Epic he really matched him pedal stroke for pedal stroke spending as much time at the front as Nino did. It was a great partnership. Not sure about Nino letting him win but it was good to see just the same.

@formula411: You bet. At least 10. I'd add to your list Chloe Woodruff who missed two races and still finished 9th in the overall. She's another one that looks like her star is rising. I did see Annika looking better. Very happy not to see another DNF. Been a painful season to watch after it started out so well. Right after Sea Otter things just went in the dumps. IMPO, she over did it with the Boels Dolmans thing. Then the injuries...... On EB, I don't what to think about that situation anymore. The article here on PB the other day left me with more questions than answers. Something about the whole deal is just off. I'm thinking 2020 is going to be very interesting to say the very least. Cheers

Final Results: Snowshoe DH World Cup 2019
What a season. Great racing, a tight two way battle being decided by four riders in nail-biter finish with the last man down the hill calling the shot. I can't wait to see Wyn & Cathro's post race/season videos. Congrats to Danny, Marine, Loic & Tracey. On the down side it was also a horrific year for injuries and I hope the trend doesn't continue into 2020. There's a huge inherent danger in DH racing but this year seemed worse than last year. Maybe it just because it's the freshest memory but it seemed that way to me. With any luck they'll all heal up and be back at it next year. It's going to be a long winter waiting for it to start all again......
