Pinkbike Poll: What's the Longest Ride You've Been On?
The "Melburn Roobaix", where you dont know the path until you get a map on the day, end up riding down a bunch of cobblestone laneways and many on homemade bikes or in outfits. Last few were around 40-50kms and took us around 5 to 6 hours.

Bike Check: Caroline Buchanan's Trek Ticket DJ
@onemanarmy: It did seem like CB was chasing another shot at the Olympics before not being selected. Having seen her racing CB's skills are incredible, with the practice in adding a bag of tricks will definitely make her one to continue following and watch her chase the riding dream.

Great Britain Announces 44 Riders for World Championships, Olympic Champion Pidcock Won't Compete for Rainbow Stripes
@fartymarty: Better not read the whole background of BC for BMX racing then. Lets just say, there ended up being a Gold Medal out of it

Got to see it last night. You're in for a real treat. And the boys were up for a good chat/discussion about it too.

@DGWW: Mike Laird (Lairdframe) does the frames for the Pro Riders with Mongoose. Should have the Mongoose seatstay bridge and so on in there.

Dates Announced for 2021 Pump Track World Championships Qualifiers
@IMeasureStuff: Been to Wangaratta or Bright? Not massive but still good. As for the Aus one, If i remember right Mt Gambier has put one in next to the BMX track, its set up for such an event and also has the timing loops installed. Thats my guess where its going.

Race Report: Jessie Smith & Michael Bias Take Wins at Pump Track World Championships - Cambridge, NZ
@DGWW: not saying wheel size always means more speed, but the bigger wheelscan hold more rotating mass to maintain said speed. Easier to accelerate the smaller lighter set ups but easier to keep the bigger ones spinning (negating friction and drag). That is true for the everyday person, not forgetting in most cases a mtb even a dirt jumper will have losses from the suspension. I say this from experience in the bmx world. 20s are faster for starts vs a 24 (cruiser), but for the majority the 24 is easier to keep it flowing as it takes less efforts due to the effects of the wheels being like a bigger flywheel. Just have to remember guys like Michael are at the absolute pinnacle of their sport. And after seeing him ride, knows exactly what to do to be ahead.

Race Report: Jessie Smith & Michael Bias Take Wins at Pump Track World Championships - Cambridge, NZ
@DGWW: the rotating mass will make a difference but to gain that in the first place is the harder part along with any potential losses caused by other components that move (ie suspension). For the BMXs a 24 would have more rotating mass which helps for pump races, but those kiwis in question are some of the best in the world so best of sticking to their normal 20s. If in doubt go check out Michael Bias' videos, is awesome to watch, and even crazier if you have seen the gaps in person.
