Qualifying Results from the Snowshoe DH World Cup 2022
@ExMxEr: Ha right!!! Actually I was really asking a legit question as I don't know all the rules on Juniors moving up to the Elite. My question was, is their a minimum age you have to be to move up into the Elites?

Camille the Consistent. Nothing flashy- just gets the job done.

@uk-hardtail: Can he race elites next year? Do they have to be a certain age? He obviously can compete with the Elites.

Opinion: Aaron Gwin & The Importance of Vulnerability
@L0rdTom: I can see your point, but I for one, do not want to rely on my government in my retirement, so I am trying to maximize my worth now, so I don't have to work past 60 and will defer any SS checks to as far out as possible. It's really no different for many young athletes. Not so much in MTB, but in traditional sports, these players can make generational wealth often before they turn 30. In MTB, it is not necessarily generational wealth, but if AG (or any other rider) can make enough money in a short 10 year window in order to have a comfortable living for his own life, then I am all for it. He has been much smarter than most earning money of his name and likeness. Some may call it arrogant, others call it SMART.

Opinion: Aaron Gwin & The Importance of Vulnerability
@burnermtb: The fact that anyone can just group all Americans or Europeans or anyone else into a certain persona is crazy. Much of these stereotypes are generated by the media, and many believe it because that is all they know about, based on said media. I remember following the Tour De France 12 years ago , We went from town to town in France, thinking " the French would be so rude" esp. to Americans. Well nearly every French person we met and interacted with, were some of the most hospitable and nice people I have ever met. So for me, it was eye opening and really opened my mind to "experiencing before believing". In terms of AG, I have ran into him at least a dozen times on our local trails here in Murrieta, and he has always been super down to earth and always open to a picture or conversation. I think he gets a bad rap for being "a professional" in a group of traditional "misfits" in the MTB Racing world. No drinking, no drugs, no "just one of the bro's" type attitude. I can see where that would alienate him from many of his peers back in the day, but that is also what made him so good! I think many are starting to appreciate the hard work and professionalism that he helped bring to the sport. In terms of Money: Why would anyone fault him ( or anyone else) for making the most out of contracts and making $$$. We should always maximize our worth. Most Athletes have a very short window to make as much money as possible in their sport. They need to take advantage of that while they can, to set themselves up for the rest of their lives.
