Nukeproof Grows Kids' MTB Range with 14" & 16" Cub Scout & Cub Scoot Balance Bike
@tom666: You realise that’s the whole group, but just Nukeproof? From what such I’ve heard from people in NP, the brand is not loss making and is likely to be bought by one of the bigger players in the industry. Wiggle will be bought by Halfords, but I think Nukeproof will be sold as a separate entity.

UPDATE: Nukeproof, Vitus, Chain Reaction Cycles & Wiggle Face Uncertainty as Parent Company in Financial Trouble
@NuckaMan: Brexit voting was split largely on demographic and geographical lines: older people and those in less affluent parts of the country generally voted leave, for instance. As with all things, it’s never as simple as either side will tell you: leaving the EU has been disastrous economically, but the whole EU institution is fundamentally unfit for purpose and needs urgent reform.

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
Why don’t the judges publish their workings? And who even were the judges this year? I could find nothing online giving any of this information. Needs more transparency - it’s not some sort of mates’ race but it’s judged like it is.

Gee Atherton Air-Lifted from the Red Bull Rampage Course After Crash in Practice [Updated with Injury Report]
Gee looks to be relatively ok - a few fractures, but nothing life changing. He sounds like he wants to come back and try again next year. For those who think he should retire - I don’t think you understand how the whole Atherton family operate. I was chatting to Dan on Saturday and it’s obvious that they all operate on a different level to the rest of us - not just in biking terms but in their willingness to take on seemingly impossible challenges.

Review: Goodyear Newton MTR & MTF Tires
I hear this quite a bit and it ignores quite a few advantages that tyres with thicker casings have: Thicker casings seem to give better damping. You can run pressures much lower than 25 psi and not have problems. Heavier tyres deflect less on rooty/rocky sections of trail. I think a lot of people run their tyres way too hard. There was a review on here a while back of the Vittoria Mazza in the heaviest casing and the reviewer was running it at 28psi! You don't even see heavier world cup DH riders running their tyres that high at most tracks. For any natural stuff, especially in the wet, I've found pressures towards the bottom end of the spectrum to give so much more extra grip that it's worth the trade off in rolling speed.

Qualifying Results Decide Final Standings as Junior Racing Cancelled at the Loudenvielle DH World Cup 2023
As an aside, I had a job interview at GCN a little while ago. One thing that struck me was how little by importance the DH and enduro deal seemed to have to them. I was pitching a whole load of stuff they could do with race content and how they could tie it in with their YT channels but I got the strong impression that the demographic they’re really interested in is not the racing audience. Made me wonder why they bought the rights in the first place. JP

@weeksy59: Yeah - I was there and it was carnage. One rider broke his nose in that section and what seemed like half the field had crashes. JP

Review: Vittoria Mazza Enduro Race Tires - A Compound Too Far?
@TannerValhouli: If only! I thought the standard 4C tyre wasn’t particularly good, but then it is full of rooty trails round here so grip on these in the wet (most of the year) is more important to me than things like rolling speed.
