Bontrager Rolls Out New Shoes, Tires and Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2017
No matter how many brands release shoes these days, do they grip as much as FiveTens? If not, I just don't see myself buying any of them, whether they're the latest Specialized, Ion, Bontrager, ... Sometimes I see the argument "they don't grip as much to allow you to reposition the foot", I'm sorry but that's just a "solution" to a non-existing problem (I'd call that marketing bs but ... :) ). My FiveTens grip enough that even with half the foot on it, I'll easily finish my run, or long enough to find a safe spot to reposition. On the other hand, I would definitely hate my feet bouncing off the pedals because of a lack of grip...

Morgane Charre Not Selected to Race 2017 World Champs
@BDKR: No, because we're French and we like to argue, but not to act. Joke aside, I'm not really sure it would be doable, without a company or someone investing the money into it to have people working round the clock to promote, get riders to sign up, ... And then you would need the global recognition from the UCI to compete in the World champs, World cups. Which in my opinion probably wouldn't do it because of pressure from the FFC.

The FFC has no interest whatsoever in MTB. A few guys there are trying their best to fight for the MTB to be recognized, but every single year, they're being shut down by someone higher up. They could EASILY fill all the spots, and more than a few ahtletes would be ready to go on their own money, they would just need the FFC the add them to the roaster and there we go. It wouldn't cost a dime from the FFC, but no. They just do NOT care at all. And consider the French DH national series, 2 venues this year. Just 2.
