Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@mariomtblt: Some climbs are so steep and long that even when you're not pedaling hard/fast and in the easiest gear available you're still dying physically. I'm no pro athlete so it's either I stop pedaling or hike a bike.

Video: Spectator & Rider Collide in Canary Islands Race
The rider should be considered the winner and awarded first place. The lady should face penalty and fines for her actions. Sure, it's tragic both people involved were injured but common sense says you don't jump into the middle of the street/road while a race is happening.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
I don't care. If having a lighter weight saves me 20 seconds, which might not seem like much but to me 20 seconds is a loooong time on a tough lung busting, leg burning climb. The sooner I can reach the top the sooner I can start to breathe normally and my heart doesn't feel like it's going to explode. Just 10 seconds quicker is nice on those long steep climbs. So I do keep the weight in check.

Update: Brage Vestavik Dislocates Shoulder & Breaks Humerus in Multiple Places in Massive Rampage Crash
slopstyle riders competing raises the bar. But it's part of the evolution of Rampage and has been since the early days. Just hucking off of the biggest cliffs is not as big as it once was. Pro riders like Vinc, VinnyT, Zinc etc etc are hitting these like it was nothing. But I still remember how exciting it was to see backflips, 180's, tail whips, forward flips, no handers slowly creeping into the event. This made Rampage more exciting and no one back then complained. It's saying to the competition "Oh you can huck off that ledge? Me too but I can also do a forward flip off of it" I think if Rampage had rules against doing tricks the event eventually would cease to be exciting. The average person doesn't sit in the race car, or in the action of a UFC match and same with mountain biking. If the average person sees people doing gnarly lines and hucking off huge jumps but making it look easy then eventually people will become used to it. Just a thought about slopstyle riders competing in Rampage.

Tinker Juarez Announces Split with Cannondale in Now Deleted Social Media Post
@matadorCE: Final reply to this: Don't tell me I don't know, realize, or understand that corporations have been for decades treating their workers unfairly when it comes to low wages, long hours, and unsafe/healthy working conditions. This is NOT one of them. You're apparently a fan of his and you got butt hurt that one of your riders got dropped. Like many other riders who sponsor a brand have been dropped before. Sponsored athletes jump from one brand to another ALL the time. No different in other sports as well. His choice to go out the way he did was in fact a childish act. It could have cost him so much more but he chose to delete his post. You can't understand this because you also feel "entitled" that it doesn't matter if a person works for a company and gets paid that they are IMMUNE to being laid off or let go. From the article and quote from Cannondale because you clearly didn't read that far: "To better align with his goals in the coming years, Tinker has decided to seek a different level of support than what Cannondale is offering, from another bike partner. We will forever be one of his biggest fans and grateful for the contributions Tinker has given to Cannondale, the sport of mountain biking and the broader cycling community. Thank you, Tinker." Tinker went to other brands. He has been trying to make other deals to hop ship. Tinker was hoping for Cannondale to bounce back with a better offer. They didn't. However, Cannondale didn't stoop so low in their response. They were respectful and thanked him as a legend in the MTB race community. So, in your logic: Tinker can go to court, sue Cannondale because they dropped him due to "not being able to afford what he was asking for" even though ALL the years Tinker was an ambassador he got PAID for his services but this doesn't matter right? Tinker is IMMUNE to being let go and can rightfully force Cannondale to keep him on forever. It's called a contract. Both parties agree to the contract. Tinker agreed and Cannondale agreed. Tinker worked for Cannondale Cannondale paid him. Contract expires. Cannondale HAS NO RIGHT to renew the contract? Are you some sort of dictator? Don't confuse this as unfair business. The real working issues are kids/adults working in sweatshops for less than $8 a day with long hours and no healthcare. Or corporations forcing their employees to keep working without breaks where they have piss in a bottle. Also, you should look up the word "entitled" I don't think you seem to understand what it means.

@matadorCE: Go back and read my replies to "get my point" I'm not defending Cannondale I'm defending how business works. Just how old are you?

Live Now: Claudio Caluori & Nino Schurter Go Head to Head in a 'Neverresting' Challenge
@owenbfoster: He did 9,639 meters in 22 hours just 300 meters below 10k ascent. He did it on a non e-bike so no need to have someone waiting with an extra batteries. From what I understand he did an extra lap just to be sure he hit his mark. What confuses me is that the reports say he didn't complete it in 24 hours he went a little over. If you compare Claudio and Nino with the help of e-bikes they essentially did it in 16-17 hours time. I think doing 8800 meters in a day without an e-bike like Tom did is incredibly difficult to do on a mountain bike. Doing 10,000 meters is also incredible even with an e-bike. Hats off to ANYONE who does this challenge on mtb or road while pedaling.

@matadorCE: Your response shows you still don't understand how business works. I hope one day you understand. Hopefully, you won't get let go of your job and then bitch about "how it's unfair and how you're entitled" Good luck.

You don't even know the difference between a moped and an e-bike. Velosolutions is out there making some of the best free pump tracks for communities all over the world to encourage people to ride more. What have you done besides being a tool?
