Video: Wyn Masters Speaks to Yoann Barelli on Sponsorship and Salaries in Pro MTB
@chris-brown225: yep. That's a shame ! I remember once saying on Yana Belomoina Facebook in the comments section on one of her numerous pictures with RedBull can that it was a bit weird to tell everybody she's a healthy competitor with good "fuel". And drinking at the same time RedBull ^^

How do (some) pro earn most of their money ? By promoting stupid Monster/RedBull and other shitty food and drinks.

Les Gets World Cup DH and XC Cancelled
@softsteel: c'est simple : une compétition de DH ou de XC ne rapporte pas d'argent, ce sont des sports qui restent "marginaux" et qui ne rapportent pas en matière de droits de diffusion. D'où le fait que les organisateurs annulent. Ils ne veulent probablement pas se "faire chier" (entre guillemets hein) pour un public qui sera restreint à cause du Covid et pour des retombées nulles. En ce qui concerne le Tour, pour l'avoir couvert de l'intérieur en tant que journaliste (mais pour l'automobile), je te confirme le côté dérive pollution et beaufitude qui m'agace aussi. je suis pourtant un adepte de certaines courses sur route comme les classiques. Malheureusement, c'est similaire en DH : la dernière World Cup de Méribel, j'y étais, et les gens jettaient des trucs partout. En clair : Tour de France ou VTT, les gens du public sont des êtres humains dans les deux cas, comportant une bonne partie de gros porcs qui mériteraient des amendes salées !

Les Gets World Cup DH and XC Cancelled
I wonder how the sponsors will deal with that complicated situation : paying high salaries to athletes such as Nino Schurter who don't compete at all in any other disciplines than MTB. And with a wiped off season and an athlete being older, I don't know how they can handle that case. A bit like Froome in the road world, actually.

Tu mélanges tout là. Le Tour de France est maintenu parce que les organisateurs souhaitent le maintenir. Les coupes du monde de VTT, là, en l'occurrence, sont annulées sur demande de leurs organisateurs... Jamais compris pourquoi tant de haine parfois entre les "routiers" et les "vttistes". On peut tout à fait aimer les 2 mondes.

Problem with these countries (Austria, Switzerland) : everything is very expensive ! If you are not Swiss, the trips are so expensive (hotel, food, activities...).

Review: The 2020 Revel Rascal's Suspension Design Lives Up to the Hype
Is it me, or Shimano is ignored by a vast majority of bike brands ? Most of the builds comes with SRAM. Some with Shimano, but not often. Don't know about the industry (maybe Sram has a better commercial/marketing department), but that's a shame. SLX/XT/XTR would be so nice if standard on bikes.

Video: The Most Intense Moments from the 2019 XC World Cup
The thumbnail of the video... says it all. THAT'S the spirit of the mountain bike, going down... and up, and having the lungs burning. Can't wait to see the VDP put a monster attack in september in Les Gets :)
