Full Video Highlights: EWS Petzen-Jamnica 2018
@Trudeez: No, just 30+ years as a bike mechanic and a couple of decades of fitting riders to bikes for a living is all. Being a pro on a factory team doesn't always mean a racer's bike setup is spot on, particularly when it comes to bike fit. Hell, look how long took to finally get Minnaar on a bike that fits him properly, and his team support is about as good as it gets. Also, maybe go back and look at what I actually wrote. I simply said that "I think" she would be even faster than she already is if her bars were narrower, just sharing my $0.02 with a previous commenter who is of the same opinion. And it should be obvious that the hashtag campaign comment I made is in no way serious, as indicated by the smiley winky face thing at the end. Isabeau is indeed one of the best in the world, and is also one of my favorite racers to watch and root for just because it's obvious how much she loves racing. Oh, and her handlebars are way too wide.

The Feces that Broke the Camel's Back
If you catch someone on the trail not picking up after their pooch, I say follow them home and shit on their porch.

Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@stacykohut: Yep, Skip Hess the owner of BMX Products (aka Mongoose) was a long time drag racer and did indeed name the bikes after his friend Tom McEwen. Gary Turner of GT came from drag racing as well. He currently has a nostalgia nitro funny car called Pedaler. https://bangshift.com/general-news/bangshifts-nitro-funny-car-gypsy-lays-odds-26th-california-hot-rod-reunion/ (about halfway down the page)

Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@stacykohut: The first bike SE made was a JU-6, named for Jeff Utterback. Utterback left SE to ride for GJS (company his dad started), so Scot Breithaupt added a headtube gusset to the JU-6 and renamed it the PK Ripper after Perry Kramer. Stu did race on a PK Ripper for awhile, but you are 100% correct about the bike that was originally built by SE for Stu. The STR-1 didn't go into production before Stu went to Redline, so they simplified the design by not wrapping the twin downtubes wrap around under the BB and renamed it the Quadangle.

@RideTahoe707: No, that is the current one with 26" wheels. The new one coming for 2019 is going to be a 24".

Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@Supermoo: Well, this weekend he is at an old school BMX reunion in Chatsworth California, and tomorrow for his 60th birthday there is going to be a big group ride in Long Beach in his honor. SE Bikes is making a new signature bike for him in their 2019 line. SE Bikes should have something about it on their website and/or Facebook page.

@WAKIdesigns: I think you are forgetting that Gwin runs E13 wheels which have an integrated cassette, 7 speed 9-21. If he was running a 36t chainring with a 9t cog his top gear would be equivalent to a 44-11. He ran a 32-9 which is almost identical to a 36-11.

@DDB1: Yeah, good point. Must have been something else than. I wonder if a few riders showed up late for their start time?

Some riders were bunnyhopping the hay bales that were at the apex of corners. I think the penalty was 5 seconds each time they did it. Here is a rebroadcast from some live local footage. https://youtu.be/7qxhD0iEq0A
