Photo Story: Matt Fairbrother Wins NZ MTB Rally Entirely Self-Supported
"MATTHEW FAIRBROTHER takes the win after 6 days of enduro racing, with his personal total of 582km and +17,300m of elevation, versus 165km and only 4245m of climbing for everyone else" What the hell!? These stats are absolutely insane!

Mass Redundancies Reported at Wiggle Chain Reaction
@iian: lol - you could tell the difference in the two businesses almost immediately after the takeover when they all flew over in their brown shoes, chinos and freshly pressed shirts and started calling "town-halls".

Mass Redundancies Reported at Wiggle Chain Reaction
@iian: That's exactly it, a lot of people seem to forget that while CRC grew into the e-commerce giant that it was, it was originally started as a family-run LBS. Built from the ground up and for the first 25-odd years it was filled to the brim with staff who were all bike mad (myself included), and there were hundreds of people working there. Obviously that all changed with the takeover - I say takeover because it definitely wasn't a merger - with Wiggle, but the vast majority of the real success was done by people who were really passionate about the sport, and fully immersed in it.

Danny Hart off Cube too, and it seems like he hasn't got anything sorted for next year yet either. Mental.

World Cup Racing Coming to Max as $9.99 Add-On in 2024
Wow, those prices are absurd! I know MTB is not seen as a sport for the poor man, but in the current economical climate, this is so out of touch.

Wiggle and CRC to Close International Web Shops as Sales Process 'Gathers Pace'
You mean if Wiggle had left CRC's operations alone and kept it in N Ireland ;) No one at CRC wanted to move things to Wolverhampton. Cheaper labour in NI too.

UPDATE: Nukeproof, Vitus, Chain Reaction Cycles & Wiggle Face Uncertainty as Parent Company in Financial Trouble
This is very sad to see. I used to work there from the early days, and can honestly say it was a great place to work. Probably about 80% of the people working there were all cyclists, all passionate about the sport. I really feel for anyone I know who is still there, fingers crossed they get something sorted out. That all started to change once it was sold off and the Wiggle takeover (deffo wasn't a merger) happened. No amount of corporate branding can replace the people who were lost after that. Genuinely shocked at how they managed to take something so good and turn it into what has happened now.
