Trans-Provence IX: Adventure Redefined - Photo Epic
Yes but Marco was on a mission as he had clawed his way up the results in 2016 only to blow past a marker on one of the stages on day 5 (I think I recall) and lose a boat load of time and several positions as a result of this mistake.

Trans-Provence IX: Adventure Redefined - Photo Epic
@andreabonasia: Also there did not really appear to be any enforcement of the "wear a helmet at all times rule" and as you can see from many photos some riders wear a floppy hat/ baseball hat on the climbs/ easy transitions with their full face strapped to their pack. In 2016, I took a Bell Super 2R so I could wear an open face for most of the riding but have a chin bar for the special stages. I eventually cracked on Day 5 (and I am a "wear your helmet at all times young man" sort thanks to a safety conscious mother when I was a kid!!) and wore my floppy hat on the long (really long) up hill transitions where the greatest risk of falling over was from exhaustion whilst pushing or carrying one's bike rather than falling off one's bike when riding it. Some riders carried two helmets (rarely as an extra 450-ish grams for 270 kms really adds up). Most of the full face full race types (Pros, top 5 M40 and top 5 AM) carried their full faces or strapped them to their packs on the easier climbs and transitions and just suffered the heat if they felt that they should be wearing their helmet for any of the more technical, higher risk, non special stage riding.

Santacruz Bicycles Carbon 35mm x 780mm riser bar

$150 CAD
From the horse's mouth so to speak: The all new Santa Cruz carbon handlebars are designed and made exclusively by Santa Cruz, using everything we’ve learned from creating World Championship-winning carbon bicycles. Each bar has a dialed amount of stiffness, keeping vibration in check and minimizing arm fatigue. Markers take the pain out of set-up alignments and stealth branding keeps things class. Initially conceived for DH, we soon realized the 800mm-wide 35mm-clamp design delivered DH strength at All Mountain weight. Exclusively spec'd on Nomad builds from XT/X01 upwards, the new Carbon 800 Bars are bona fide Santa Cruz products that take the quality of our bicycles up yet another notch, and will soon be available after market so you can do the same. Santa Cruz Carbon 800 Bar details: Width: 800mm Rise: 20mm Sweep: 9° Clamp: 35mm Max clamp width: 60mm (not compatible with most direct-mount stems) Weight: 235g Trimmed to 780 mm on install but not ridden due to preference for another brand handle bar. This bar goes even faster when paired with this stem: https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2198145/ No trades, pref local sale. If you want them shipped you pay (Canada Post) shipping and paypal fee.
