Video: Welcome to the 2022 Downcountry Field Test
The choice of bikes for the Downcountry Field Test is a bit weird. RSD Wildcat V3 29" has almost the same numbers as Norco Optic, which is like a mini downhill bike. In Norco's product line Revolver 120 would be a Downcountry bike, so I would say that something like Optic (In this case RSD Wildcat) can't be in the same test as something like Revolver 120 (Other bikes in this field test, except Following). Speaking of the Following, since Evil was not present in PB's tests for a long time, you could omit it now also. If I remember correctly, the first generation of Following was marketed as a "Mini Downhill" bike. It is clearly a short-travel trail bike. Also, the Field Test would be more relevant if the latest generation of BMC Fourstroke LT was included.

Pauline Ferrand Prevot Officially Signs with Ineos Grenadiers
What a lost for MTB community. I am sure she will have even better results now when she moved to the team with such elaborate doping practice and enough money to never get caught.

Fezzari Releases New Signal Peak XC / Trail Bike
I think that the original Signal Peak was such a great bike and very much ahead of it's time. 120 mm front and back and (for the time) slack 68 degree HTA, two water bottles inside the frame. But I am really puzzled why girls and guys from Fezzari decided to make this XC, 100 mm version. In my humble opinion, I think they should just make 120/120 mm again, but without compromises that were necessary to have 2 in 1. For instance reach could be 500 mm, TTL ~ 655, HTA 67, BBH 335-340, etc. As far as I know, Fezzari doesn't have a XCO team, so no need to satisfy their needs. That one bike would be very close to Scott Spark, so it could be also used for XCO. Don't get me wrong, I think these are great bikes, I just have a feeling they could make it a bit more suitable for todays market.

MMR Launches New Kenta XC Bike
They have one of the tallest WC riders (David Valero Serrano) on the team and yet the largest size is L with 465 mm reach. Very weird.

First Look: 2022 Rocky Mountain Element - When XC Gets Aggro
I wonder why RM didn't make an option that is more XCO, Eg. a bike with 120 mm fork, something like Element 70 XCO (100 mm fork) in the previous generation. I assume it would steepen up HTA by ~1.

First Look: 2022 Rocky Mountain Element - When XC Gets Aggro
Such an interesting bike. In my mind, a bike with a 130 mm fork is a trail bike, since there is no SID or SC fork in that travel. But, when a previous Element was released, it was also a big departure from the XC bikes at that time. It had 120 mm at the front and since no SC fork was available, that was considered a trail fork, it had a dropper ( 150 mm one, and not 60-80 XC dropper), which at that time was a rarety and it had 720 mm handlebar. I was surprised, but only a couple of years later, many other manufactures offered similar bikes. Judging by that experience, Fox will release 130 mm SC soon. I really like how they managed to make room for two water bottles.

Final Results from the Women's XC at the Tokyo Olympics
@Ricolaburle: What about Annika Langvad? While she was at the peak of her sports career, a lot of people (media included) have mentioned her academic achievements (qualified dentist), which, I would say, is not related to her achievements in MTB. He didn't say that Jolanda won the gold medal because of her physical appearance, he just stated his opinion in a non-offending way. My wife is a scientist (molecular biology), she has published more than 30 scientific papers, and she says that if somebody says she looks good, she will take that compliment :).
