Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
Healing vibes from Austria as well! Get well soon. As a MD who Haß looked into this topic quite thoroughly because a close friend experienced prolonged "concussion symptoms" after a crash that resulted in Diffuse Axonal Injury (only visible on MRI, not CT), all I can say is: DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THIS TOPIC AND ESPECIALLY THE RISK OF SECOND HIT. Therefore the decision to let you start in Lourde was actually wrong. Staying in a calm place would have been best. Crashing during race run could have resulted in a tragedy.

Video: Saturday Sends #49
Absolutely true. I almost feel stupid for watching those „sends“ most weeks, although it‘s mostly wasted time. Could be cool 40-60s, instead every random bs gets picked…

Video: The 48 Hours Leading Up to the First World Cup of the Season in Lourdes with Eliot Jackson
SO. GOOD. There are pretty good german commentators but Rob Warner and Eliot Jackson are just so brilliant. I just hope they remain at the mic.

Interview: Martin Maes on His Switch to Orbea - I Don't Really See The Advantage of a High Pivot Bike for Enduro
However, I don't really see a good point in his statement. The intention of high pivot in my eyes seems to be, that the axle path of the rear wheel allows the bike to hold it's momentum better through rough sections. That's why it's used in DH (and nobody thinks about using it for XC). If the gain is greater than the downsides - that is most likely dependend on model and track / rider.

Interview: Martin Maes on His Switch to Orbea - I Don't Really See The Advantage of a High Pivot Bike for Enduro
As a M.D. and having read all available information it's just sad that online commentators try to make a case out of something that was very clearly neither intended by the doctor nor by the team. Also, the substance is not like testosterone or cocaine or whatever, it has questionable performance enhancing qualities among various other effects and clearly nobody that clever trick of having an infected flesh would to gain the chance to take this without being too suspicious is just bullshit conspiracy. He took it for a very good acute reason. BIG DIFFERENCE!

@mikekazimer: I'm running a Tubolito Tube for that purpose. Safes a ton of weight with no downside except: it's orange! Haha! Btw, great bike check!

Video: Shredding Gravel Bikes in the Snow
Riding gravel bikes myself (quite "progressive" as a MTB Enduro rider) I'm really surprised to See that they are descending on the hoods and not in the drops of their bar. I was always surprised to see Akrigg, etc ride in the drops but it just gives you so much extra stability. Even with dedicated hooks like the GRX it's no comparison, lower center of gravity is just so much better.

FDA Approves Device That May Help Prevent Traumatic Brain Injuries by Clamping Blood Vessels in the Neck
I agree with you. Interesting for football, martial arts, maybe soccer, but thankfully head trauma in biking is a rather rare.
