@gkeele: trail is a little niche stuck between Down Country and Enduro. Not very woke

Race Report: MTB vs BMX - Red Bull Pump Track Leavenworth 2019
@DarrellW: A few BMXers were on the Pump track World champs, most of us know what happened. And they were not the top of the elite. Michael Bias was on Crankworx Rotorua, but that was a ground track. If it was asphalt and he had his BMX he'd fk up everybody. That dude needs 50 meters of raw pedalling mainly on flat and clears Crabapple bits sized thing. Now bring the absolute monsters like Graf, Kimman, Fields etc, and suddenly 26" wheels looks like a crusier for amateurs. If Pumptrack develops it will be for BMXers what Enduro is for Downhillers. Sport for ex Champions to become new Champions. I doubt it would pay well but it would be super cool thing to happen making it more likely for quality pumptracks to pop up in every bigger city around the world. New Skateparks, just much more accessible for beginners and all sorts of riders, from skate to MTB.

@vinay: it was about elbow pads my friend. Wearing elbow pads is the new indicator of intelligence on Pinkbike comment board.

If you would bring top BMX elite it would be a demolition, especially if you make it possible for them to make a few pedal strokes before dropping in. Not because of the bike itself rather getting used to one. Top BMXers are power houses with hip hinge and sprint out of this world because this is what they train for. They all look like Richie Rude or bigger. They all make 2000+ Watts on 5sec test on trainer and will put most of us to shame on Box jump, it’s just that they will do it with one leg. What BMX is great at for a regular mountain biker is it will allow you to shit your pants on a pump track. It turns one into A-line on a DH bike. Highly recommended

I could argue that the XC field as a whole has stuff to do in the skills department. Just because Nino or Jolanda are prime examples doesn’t mean the rest is following right behind them. MVDP is average to say the least, hips don’t lie and his eyes are not on the prize. He can pedal, but if they didn’t pave the track and rode last years sections he’d be in trouble. In womens you have Jolanda, Emily, Maja, then Kate to some degree (although I think Pendrel rides just as well if not better) and then there’s everyone else far behind. Gunn Rita was great at pressing on pedals, not much with holding the handlebars.

@ismasan: as I wrote above, marshguard takes 1mm of tyre clearance... stubbornness, fear of taking “risks” while looking too much at what others do and not do, superstion. I will bet a hundred bucks that Emily Batty went for a dropper after seeing the video of Jolanda taking her over through a rock garden. She almost died while Jolanda flew through.

@vinay: I am speechless, I can easily tell you a difference between riding with or without a fender, I don’t need a PhD for it. Riding with fender = less mud in the eyes. When it comes to the rear - fender = less chance of mud grinding away carbon fibre stays but that is less important for racing. I encourage you to replicate my experiment
