Tech Randoms: Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2019
Definitely makes the wheel stiffer, simulates a dramatically larger flange with shorter spokes. Trust me, I was a USAC Pro DHer for a decade, built all my race wheels, as well as 350+ for clients and many other Pro DH & XC riders.

First Ride: 2020 Giant Reign Advanced 29
I'm super stoked that more companies are specing 370 hubs, far better quality than any of the renamed Formula junk or the Novatec junk, that I've seen speced on bikes over $5K in years previous. Really surprised that more of you don't know that you can, with some dollars, turn your 370 into a 350, and not get a whole new wheel...

What's the Difference? Neko Mulally's vs. Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gamblers
Still trying to figure out where the 3cm difference in bar height is...? In the future, when you guys are using that fun digital angle gauge, the bikes need to be measured on smooth flat ground with the headtube perpendicular when observed from the front of the bike. Sweet article, bring us more!

Doping: Crime and Punishment?
You guys are crazy! I've been racing Pro DH in Colorado for over ten years. Most of the fastest riders I know do it because they love it, DEFINITELY NOT for the money. Even if you win the Male Pro Class in most DH/MX/DS events, your winnings don't even cover your entry fee and your tires! Why the hell would (or could) you dope? I've had my strongest competition show me their lines, or give me a part that I need out of their toolbox so that I can beat them! Pure, friendly, respectful, honest, competitors. We want the best rider to win, period! Hardly any of us 'get rich' from sponsorship or endorsements, and most of us pay something for our bikes/kits/entry fees/gym time, etc. Maybe a few WC riders do a little doping, but even then, their paychecks and endorsements are a tiny fraction of the money and sponsorship opportunities in Euro Road Racing. Most of the top WC DHers are family men that are gonna spend their money on homes and investments to keep them going when the meager paycheck from DHing dries up.
