@Narro2: glad we are coming around! :) I think it would be very different for non-pros, since pros in DH are training a lot.

@Narro2: tell you what we can do to squash this nonsense. I'll wager $100CAD that ALL winners this year won't be current or former WC XC racers. Want to take me up on this bet? We can continue it out to 2019 if you want.

@Narro2: I spent enough time providing you with information. I'm not going to illustrate the lack of XC guys in enduro top 20 results. Aren't you supposed to be busy laying brick for that wall anyway :lol:

@Narro2: Danny Hart. It's basically a DH race with some non-timed liaison stages that takes fitness to cover. Considering how fit Danny is, and how immensely skilled he is compared to the rest of the world (and Nino, lets not kid ourselves here trying to manipulate reality to direct the conversation), it's a no brainer imo. Dany is one of the best bike handlers on the planet. For the future, this is a neat tool to see results of racers against eachother (provided they raced the same races). It's great for this type of discussion, and will provide you with statistics about all of this so we don't need to pretend a XC guy has a change of winning an EWS any time soon. https://www.rootsandrain.com/race4480/2017-mar-26-enduro-world-series-1-rotorua/results/ From EWS, find me one XC winner or even a top contender in the past: http://www.enduroworldseries.com/2017-results/ 2016 winners: Martin Maes (former GT DHer), Sam Hill (DH), Richie Rude (DH), Jared Graves (DH, 4X, BMX), RR, Gregory Callaghan (raced DH before enduro), RR, RR. 2015: Bunch of former DHers win 2014: more of the same So yea, you can create all the hypothetical matchups you want, but *reality* and *statistics* illustrate very clearly, that this is DH with climbing transfers. Even the DHers say this. Why would you think a XC guy could just show up and win? Tomac still around? A XC guy is going to win a DH WC? I have no doubt the top XC guys are incredibly skilled but this isn't their ballgame and local events where XC guys go to school unprepared amateurs isn't a great anecdotal example. At this level, they wouldn't be able to hang with the shear speed these guys have. Different discipline entirely.

@Breeconay: word from racers was they all ended up racing in the rain after the first stage and the course was wet for everyone by the end. The complaint was that the trail was getting dicy with all the riders, but this isnt any different than the course getting chewed out in DH before the pros go and any consumate professional would expect this. At any rate, this an every single ews event results only serves to illustrate and drive home the point that xc guys arent winning any of these events any time soon. Which was the entire point of this thread.

@Narro2: "statistics". Elaborate on basic statistics yourself.

What Tire Pressure Are You Running? – EWS Round 1 – Video
@topherdagopher: i cant run less than 30 in the front without dinging it off rocks around here. 34ish for thr rear to not burp or ding. On maxxis hr2. Horses for course, but 20psi on non dh tires would mean ripping the tire off the rim after beating it to shit in the rocks. 220Lbs fwiw.
