@mattwragg: Matt, you just unwittingly explained exactly why Cookson has been voted out by a landslide. Having said that, his pay equated to £25k per year, so he wasn't exactly worrying about the electric bills either.

@Sardine: I think the UCI has missed the boat on Enduro. The EWS has the ear of the sponsors, it has the venues and it has the flexibility to let each event be a bit different. Unless they offered a massive prize fund I don't see teams or riders being tempted by an 'official' UCI backed series, nor do I see venues wanting to stump up enormous amounts of money for dedicated Pro Only events, attaching the EWS races to existing events was the best decision Chris Ball ever made.

The UCI's New XC Discipline and Increased Prize Money for 2018
@bkm303: I reckon the top guys will now aim to be in the second or third row off the line. With the races being 20 minutes guys who'd have no hope on a full race are going to go mental chasing that podium step. They won't care if they're burned out on Sunday if they get a win on Saturday. The top guys will have to consider the main race more carefully, no point burning out or getting hurt in a crash during the qualifier.

So a few mid level XC racers are going to ride around a flat dirt track like goons for twenty minutes so they can tell their sponsors they won a World Cup race? I'm sure Nino and friends will suddenly care a lot less about the start line if it means not getting tangled up with them.

Orange's Prototype 29er DH Bike - Eurobike 2017
@nojzilla: The only issue I had with the Blood was that they made about 200 of them total, far more interested buyers than bikes available. I always assumed they canned it for reasons of marketing and/or range streamlining.

Nicolai's EBoXX Monster - Eurobike 2017
Yes and no. Yes, E-Bikes are selling pretty well. No, the actual numbers aren't gigantic, but the rest of the cycling market topped out three years ago and brands are scrambling for anything at all that is showing growth. . For something more specific, E-bike sales grew 20-ish percent in the UK last year, which equated to 35'000-ish bikes sold. That's not 35'000 high end bikes, that's total, everything from janky Chinese shopping bikes to £8k Haibike E-downhill bikes. In a few countries (notably Holland) E-bike sales actually stayed flat last year, so the market's getting close to saturation point. Expect to see a lot of E-bikes getting heavy discounts by the end of next year and quietly dropping off the bottom of catalogues.

5 Things We Learned in Val di Sole
The main thing I learned is there's apparently more than one Aaron Gwin. There's the American Aaron Gwin, which means there must be another, as yet unclaimed Aaron Gwin destroying berms and Flat Tire Defenders out there in the woods somewhere. I intend to mount an expidition to find him and place a British Cycling jersey on him so that we may field an effective counter measure to the American Aaron Gwin...

e*thirteen Releases New TRS+ 9-46 Tooth Cassette
What I really want (what I really really want) is for SRAM to come out with a cheaper version of the EX1 cassette or someone else to make one, with a Shimano style alloy carrier instead the 'hand forged from a solid block mightiest steel by Odin Allfather' get up SRAM have. 8 gears, wide spread, indestructable chain, it would be perfect if the cassette wasn't $500.
