Would love to see Laurie Greenland get a win. Really enjoy watching him ride. He seems like a nice chap too.

Commencal Releases a 24" DJ Bike For Kids and Updates Ski Range
@COMMENCALbicycles: That'll explain it. Best of luck in that case. If your boards go as fast as people say your bikes do, you should be on to a winner! Also, i loved Andorra. Would love to go again.

Commencal Releases a 24" DJ Bike For Kids and Updates Ski Range
Is Commencal's ski/snowboard range popular? I've been snowboarding a number of years and have never seen any of their products for sale or advertised with the large retailers i tended to use, nor have i seen them mentioned or promoted in any snowboarding media (magazines, films etc) or athlete sponsorship. I don't mean this as a criticism, just genuinely curious. I took an interest in snowboarding a few years before i [relatively recently] got interested in MTB. It is only recently through MTB i had heard of Commencal. I even did a snowboard holiday in Andorra and can't recall ever seeing the brand name.

Slack Randoms: Spokeless e-Bikes, XC Carnage & Faked Bike Flips?
How is golf 3rd? Golf fashion is like battenburg in clothing form. Cycling needs to have a word with itself. Its marginaly sexier than cricket. Cricket. I'm furious about this.

Rose Bikes Stops Selling Bikes in the UK Due to Brake Lever Laws
This is just my interpretation, but i don't think the law exists because you HAVE to ride with your breaks this way. I would guess it's so manufacturers build in a uniform fashion and bikes are sold to customers (many of whom know nothing about bikes, just casual users that want one to ride for fun/light exercise) the same way every time. Once you've got the bike, set it up however you want. But rear left/front right is usual set up in uk so that is exactly what people expect and will get when they buy a bike. Every time.

The pre-impact groan and actual impact grunt of the first clip were very satisfying. Although i hope they weren't hurt.

Canada Announces 27 Athletes for Leogang World Championships
I always imagine that in the BC areas there's high school reunions where there's one person who gets asked what they've been doing and they look down at the floor and awakwardly mumble something about earning millions in a finance and banking job. And their old schoolfriends look at them with a hint of pity from within their full-face helmets (BC smart-casual dresscode) and try and say something nice like "Yeah nah sounds cool, good for you man". But they can all sense the failure and shame.

Video: We Actually Tested Our Bike From The Future - The Grim Donut Part 2
@JSTootell: I see what you mean, and appreciate your reply. What i was trying to ask, albeit not very well, was: A racer's motorbike is designed to go around in a circle(ish) at top speed for a relatively short time/distance. A customer's motorbike is designed for lower speeds, roads, traffic, comfort etc. Hence the design differentiates for the different demands. A DH racer's bike is designed for riding a DH trail. A DH customer's bike is designed for... riding a DH trail. So what i'm wondering is if there is any significant design divergance between a race bike and a customer bike when the environment for use is pretty similar?
