From The Top: David Lappartient, President of the UCI
Does it take into account Volunteer licences? All Officials down here for BMX have to be licenced, which although it is free can account for some large numbers. Put that across all the disciplines and suddenly you can easily be at 10-20% just for people being regarded as a member for insurance purposes.

2019 UCI MTB Rulebook Fixes DH Finals Start Order, Allows For Mismatched Wheel Sizes & More
Yeah, the BMX world has gone a bit batty over this. So many complaints over it, but to be honest its a good direction.

Ask Pinkbike: Full Face Helmets, Used Enduro Bikes, Clipless Shoes & More
@Poulsbojohnny: I just like the fact they have hopefully gained good skills rather then gone "oh those people are fast it must be because of the shoes" mentality that is out there and they don't learn basics (especially with BMX Racing). Personally I tried, hated the feeling of float and just found good pin placement (Hope pedals) and a set of Vans had no foot movement. May as well feel comfortable and enjoy the ride.

Pinkbike Poll: What Injuries Have You Received While Mountain Biking?
Even if it isn't permanent its still painful until it gets fixed. Had to have sessions to desensitise one up high on the chest/back after a crash. Wish there was a good story behind it, but it was on my own and on the flat surface of a finish line.

4 Reasons Why You Should Enter a Race This Year - Opinion
@iamamodel: Very true. Same as racing BMX you see all the mid 30s guys who are back into it thanks to their kids. They used to race so have no issues with speed, its just regaining the skills to go with said speed.

Mike vs. Mike: The Clipless Pedal Debate - Video
@nojzilla: One foot starts are good fun and fast if you can get them right. Although at a continental championship the gate starters do stall wondering if you know how to ride.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@WAKIdesigns: Yeah I should have more said about them being for BMX racing. The whole BMX scene seems to be about how to make it simple and durable, which can be had at the expense of only minimal weight. Still, if you want stiffness in a spindle, why not go Chromo, sacrifice a few grams (or would it be the same because you could go smaller, such as 24mm, although in my column cranks the 22mm is stupidly strong) and be able to have larger bearings. maybe even coax them back to threaded BB's and have multiple rows or bearings for load spread.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@adrennan: Although it is possible, the abuse would be pretty high to do such. Its funny though, Profiles have barely changed what they have done for all the years (over 30 now) and it still works. A Mate built up a 19mm bossless set for his daughter with a ti spindle. With the Euro BB (BMX Race Bike) and chainring it came in at something like 50grams heavier then some of the lighter choices. Basically a bombproof set up that will outlast the alloy cranks.

Hopefully you can find a freezer to put them into if they do get buckled
