Start List: Downhill - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
By that same token, for WC and EWS, you should pick a team at the start of the season and go with it, just like a real team would. Maybe a second fantasy contest that is race per race like it is currently.

Inside The Tape: Big Gaps & Downhill Carnage - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
@bretttippie: Thanks for the fun Tippie! Theres is defnitely enough room for serious analysis as well as Tippie fun at all these world class events. I love Tippie making his way down the course chatting up the racers. That's a completely different piece. Needles is more of a "let's pretend you are good enough to race this for a couple of minutes" while Tippie is a "let's see what these lunatics are thinking".

The 2018 Photo of the Year Winner is…
@samfr1000: As I said, if the guy really rode this and the photographer got the pefrect shot, then by all means, he earned this prize. And clearly that was the case. You do the photographer a disservice by saying a staged shot is the same as a perfectly captured real moment. Not to say that a staged or studio shot is any lesser than a captured moment, but they belong in a diifferent category. Someone who just uses the sun and another shooter with a full array of light and bounces, a model and a controlled environment is not fair amd frankly is a different art form entirely.

Spotted: Prototype ‘Project Black’ 27.5/29 Specialized DH Bike - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
They could have just taken the old Demo, which was dialed for Loic, drop it a couple of mm's and put a 29er up front. My guess is, they did and Loic and Finn liked it? Meanwhile Spesh was already working on a revamp at 27.5, so this is it. All speculation on my part.

The Complete 2019 Crankworx Rotorua Schedule
This really should say that it is a broadcast schedule. I assume here on PB?

The 2018 Photo of the Year Winner is…
All photographers take repeated shots to catch what they want, wheter they are shooting in a war zone or inside of a studio. However, there is the implicit understanding between PB and the reader that these photos were all catching real mountain biking in action. There are a hundred other contests for outdoor photography, staged ad shots etc. If this photo was just a biker trying to ride an uncut line and the photographer got a great vantage point to catch the shot of a lifetime, then hats off to them and they deserve the win. But many people are defending the photo with a "all photos are staged" argument that is ridiculous and certainly makes it seem as if it is known that the photo was staged.

Cal Poly Steel Downhill Bike - NAHBS 2019
Two questions after reading this sweet article: 1) weight?, and 2) how much do these CAD programs cost?

Video: Rémy Métailler in Chile
@remymetailler: You don't need to justify not racing to these commenters every time you post a video. Many sports have athletes who only make content and don't compete, from surfing to skiing. Hell, in the skate industry, some of the highest paid guys never enter a competition and just produce videos and photos for magazines. Remy, you are king of all park riders and the most popular park rider on the planet. Keep doing your thing.

@samfr1000: because trying a trick or seasioning a section is something people do all the time whether or not there is a camera there snapping each attempt. A WC racer comes down the same course numerous times to practice, if a photographer catches a great shot that is real. Hiking your bike to the top of a rampage line and posing as if you rode it is a staged photo.
