Video: Riding Fresh Trails, Hitting Big Jumps & New Bike Day with Rachel Atherton
@camcoz69: muscle that shit off with proper hands-only technique: pinch bead to center of rim symmetrically from valve to opposite side of rim, pull up on loose side of tire opposite valve and roll off rim. Tire irons suck, both ripping tubeless tape and tubes.

Quiz: Can you Guess the Location of these 15 World Cup DH Tracks?
This should have been a poll with fewer images, only of more obscure portions of the tracks, with radio buttons for each image giving multiple choice options.

Must Watch: Brett Rheeder's Moody Short Film 'Beautiful Idiot' is Sublime
"Sometimes it will break your spirit... your bones... your heart" First time through I definitely heard 'balls', which I thought was better than 'bones'.

As a geologist and trail builder, I really appreciate your discussion of the rock, soil, and surface conditions... as well as the issues related to erosion. Best tech-focused content out there!!!!

Qualifying Results: Val di Sole DH World Cup 2018
@zoya: Thank you for the rain info... after checking Eliot's site it's obvious she is really riding that well... I was just surprised because she hasn't been a consistently high-ranked rider until this year in the UCI DH. https://www.rootsandrain.com/compare67651,747,13153/ Awesome to see more women coming up to top pace!

Monika's time must have been affected by rain (i.e. did it start raining right after or while she was qualifying?... she can't have been the only woman that made it down clean? 10 seconds is a ridiculous gap.

Pinkbike Poll: Is There a Chain Guide on Your Bike?
I used to! ...then switched to 1x with a clutch system - just so much better. To clarify, 10spd sram/race face 30t RF Guide ring (NW), 11/34 10spd cassette, short-cage der. with a clutch. Best setup so far, and never drop chains except if I have a crash maybe. I've broken literally every frame I've ridden (currently on a crash replacement), but this drivetrain is great. Not great range (I walk steep sections) but fun and reliable as hell.
