Mathieu Van Der Poel Faces Choice Between the Tour De France & XC Olympic Race
Agreed. Anyone that can beat Nino Schurter in his prime, in multiple xc world cups, has to be one hell of a good off road rider, let alone his incredible CX track record and obvious skills.

Mathieu Van Der Poel Faces Choice Between the Tour De France & XC Olympic Race
How does gridding work for an Olympic XC race? Even if the Netherlands have a qualified starting slot for him, would he benefit from the same UCI rule change that saw him gridded as high as the 30s? As I understand it, even Pidcock who is current XC world champion will be doing a couple of world cups to help with his gridding in the Olympic XC. Plus he's planning to do the Tour... And the Olympic road race. Legend!

Bike Check: Milan Vader's Cervelo ZFS-5 Short Track Bike
Only if your upper link bearings are pressed into the frame, which on this bike they are not! The upper link is completely removed along with the potentially impacted bearings. Personally I would still just flick my lockout switch, but then that's just me!

Santa Cruz Tallboy CC Large frame + Fox 34 Factory

$1250 GBP
This Santa Cruz Tallboy 3 frame in large and colour matched forks makes for an amazing do-anything bike. Great for anything from uplift days to XC races. Top end carbon model, owned, loved and ridden from new in 2017. The 130mm Fox 34 Factory FIT fork and Fox Float DPS Factory shock have been factory serviced since new. The frame has 115mm of travel and is set up for 29inch wheels. It has a flip chip to adjust the angles if you want to run a 120mm fork, or run with 27.5+ wheels. Internal cable routing channels make fitting gears, brakes and dropper post (31.6mm) easy. Post mount fittings for 180mm front rotor. There's also a fitting for a 2x front mech if that's your thing. The frame is in good condition, though as you'd expect there are plenty of small rubs and marks from its use. There's a few paint chips from stones, particularly down near the bottom bracket There's a Cane Creek headset, and I've got a spare VPP bottom link and some bearings that I'll include too. I've had this frame built up as a 12kg XC bike and more recently as a do-anything trail bike and I'll be so sad to see it go, but I'm sure it'll get a lot more use and fun with its new owner. Could that be you?! Would prefer collection from Swindon but could be persuaded to post!

Video: Tom Pidcock Going Warp Speed on a Road Bike
If I was Dave B, I'd be telling Tom to save that level of risk for the TdF stages. Undeniably impressive skills but huge levels of risk for little reward. Middle aged me with metalwork in a couple of important bones feels uncomfortable watching this!

Scottish XC Champion Rab Wardell Dies of Heart Attack at 37
Never met him face to face but got to know him late in his career via his videos and messages on Instagram. Can't believe we were only messaging last week about the Swiss Epic, which he was on the start list for, but couldn't make because of Scottish champs. He was saying he had big FOMO when he saw my pics and I was saying we missed seeing him. "I'll do it next time" he said. I doubt he ever knew how many people he inspired in the mountain bike scene and I'll for sure be taking his inspiration and riding to remember him. RIP Rab.

The XC Form Guide: Who's Going Fast Coming into the 2022 World Cup Season
Yep. Nothing about Nino's performance at the Epic suggested that he's not fit enough to do well this year.
