Lars Forster to Miss Nove Mesto World Cup After Albstadt Crashes
@RentalBike: And they used metal grid fencing nailed down as a means of grip on top... I don't know about you, but metal is pretty freaking slick in wet! Wonder whose idea that was. Asphalt shingles would be far better, albeit maybe not as widely/cheaply available in Germany.

Lars Forster to Miss Nove Mesto World Cup After Albstadt Crashes
Official rule is between the poles where you exited like DH, but if there's no actual time or place advantage, no one is going to say anything...and I doubt any racer or team would protest someone who has just crashed hard.

XCC Photo Epic: Off to a Roaring Start - Albstadt World Cup XC 2019
@scotteh: MVDP did less than a dozen road races. MVDP started 40+ Cyclocross races this winter...which are all-out 60 minute intensity sessions, much mor similar to XCO.

Sounds good, doesn't work. The problem is simply logistics with the field size. You cannot have 50 guys on a course that is 75% singletrack. It would be a standstill after the second corner and bottle neck, and the only winners would be the guys who were lucky enough to start at the front. This same issue is why XCO races have a short start loop of 1-2km, to help break-up the field. Might as well have a discussion about side-by-side downhill action while we're at it.

"Mathieu Van der Poel stayed quiet until the very last lap." Did the editor even watch the race? Kind of missed that massive MVDP attack and short breakaway with Nino and Avancini...

Bit of a transition going from 4 hour road races and Cape Epic stages to 20 minute sufferfests.

Final Results: European DH Cup - Round 1 Maribor
UCI has very strict rules about upgrading. She is not allowed to compete in Elite Women. You can apply for waivers (i.e. - Jolanda Neff getting permission to race World's in Elite and not U23), but they're rarely granted (i.e. - Keller in U23).

Video: Behind the Scenes of Aaron Gwin's World Cup Preparation
Gwin will ride like Gwin always does. I'm really stoked to see how much Jack and Nico improve alongside him.

Walmart Launches High-End 'Viathon' Bike Brand
Knoxville Walmart sold a $700 Mongoose back in '98-'99....in store! It was a model beyond what the D70 was. ToysRUs had a $600 Pacific somewhere around that same time. Shimano STX, ProMax disc, RST fork (Jett didn't have disc tabs), etc. Makes you wonder how many of those they ever sold, and if they were clearanced off or returned to manufacturer.
