Bike Check: Finn Iles' Custom Specialized Demo - Leogang World Cup 2021
Love that the current silhouette of the demo is a lot closer to the bike from the glory days of the Sam Hill specialized monster team bikes it finally looks like a modern evolution of that bike which always looked pretty wild even though they were common as hell for like 6 -7 years! We just need someone to make a 29er iron horse sunday with a 530mm reach now.

Ridden & Rated: 11 of the Best New Men's Riding Pants
@rickybobby18: I ride in the winter in a pair of berghaus stretch fit mountaineering trousers. Which i've sewn the top end of some arm warmers into the hem of for a tighter/longer cuff. They're decent and probably a damn sight better than most of the mtb fashion brand race pants for trail riding, but id love to see something with a waterproof arse/lower leg for the inevitable uk winter/summer puddle splashes like some of the endura offerings have but in a decent length.

Ridden & Rated: 11 of the Best New Men's Riding Pants
and STILL no one makes any sensibly prices MTB trousers for anyone over 6 foot, it wouldn't take much to even sew a 3" elasticated sweat pants style cuff onto the base of any of these for taller riders would it as even a token effort from manufacturers. if I'm paying well over $100/£100 for an item of kit I expect it to fit. No wonder you chose a 5 foot 9 tester!! Plenty of road brands sell shorts/ tights in a longer leg length for taller riders, would be great to see some mtb brands step up and cater for the 50% of people above the average height on the bell curve.

UCI Recommends a Minimum of 1 Week Without Racing After Concussion in New Protocols
or Toms Skujins at the TOC in 2017 when couldn't he even sit up straight and the mechanic is trying to get him back on the bike. Its amazing how far Cycling has come in the last 3 years with its attitudes to concussion and athlete safety, hell even BArdet got pulled from the tour after his concussion this year, which is a big call from a fairly backwards french team. Funny that you don't hear about it as much in MTB given that almost everyone at a WC crashes a couple of times in practice, I guess the declarations in the crashes are just less severe? or theyre happening at lower speeds so the rider is more likely to get more time to prepare and put and arm/shoulder down before their head!

E-Enduro Race Series Finale, Varazze
@bosnianrider: for example, a spine/ nerve or muscle injury that reduces the motor function in your legs meaning you cant pedal well or someone with a below the knee amputation etc. plenty of disabilities mean that you are still able to enjoy sports or racing with the proper equipment, look at the paralympics. Why should Mtb be any different?
