@Jamesb15uk: Aaron Gwin didn't just show up and won a World Cup. He was already good on a bike and it took him 2-3 years before conditions were right for him to start winning.

@lochussie: I have raced both and I can understand that the nature of the races is different. However, you don't really see this crossover in other sports. I once also had a chat with a pro racer who told me that if you don't make the enduro courses gnarly (i.e. DH type) then you don't have the top guys interested, and thereafter the whole sport falls apart as there won't be any following. I can understand the differences, but they are very similar in which DH is a short version of enduro with less track practicing. Maybe blind racing would be a better testing of skills, but then you have advantage on local knowledge and repeated years on the same track. On a side note, Danny Hart also won the Art Rock enduro, and so did Steve Peat on different categories. Now, this is a rumour - I didn't see it personally, but heard it from someone who did... Danny was seen having uplifts on training day and Peaty was checking the tracks the week before. How is this any different from training a DH course? I am only a guy that enjoys riding bikes and enter the odd race for the fun of it.

It does beg to ask if both sports are so close together that champions can interchange one and another so seamlessly and beat the pros at their own game? Is Enduro a multi stage DH? Or is DH a single stage Enduro? Many enduro tracks are old DHs tracks and definitely not for everyone. And with XC getting gnarlier and more technical tracks all the time and going round in loops where does that stand too? And what does that mean for the trickle down technology and latest 'hip' bikes we are being sold? It is an interesting discussion to be had for sure!

@CM999: Just read a review that this bike is not a great pedaler as the BB is so low that will keep on hitting everything.. And raw aluminium for me! Fed up with cracked carbon frames! Aluminum is the new carbon!

I saw one on display at the ArdRock, not available yet in the UK - maybe late September? It looks a beast. I think the rear is the same as the current stumpy but the front is longer and it has got a 63.5 HA !!!! 150 mm front 140 back. They have 2 sizes - long and longer S2 and S3. I would love to try one, if this bike can pedal too it will be the ONE for me!
