Your Essential Guide to EWS Whistler 2017
My money is on Richie R for this one. He will be sorely pissed after the last race, has all the speed he needs, the tracks suit him a treat and he has nothing at all to lose by just going for it. For similar reasons Jared Graves for 2nd, who has won here in the past and, is brutally fit and, how could you ride a Pink Bike and come nowhere? Thereafter the race is really interesting. Sam Hill has quietly and very tactically gathered points all season without ever seeming to fall off, flat, break his bike or generally over reach. This is a big chance for him to put a buffer into Dailly before they return to Europe and French friendly conditions at the Finale. He will need to, because there he risks flood of fast Frenchies getting between Dailly and him, wiping out any points advantage he might have. Dailly will know this, and will need to make a choice as to how hard he goes on a course that previously did not play to his strengths. Whatever the case it will be on for young and old. That first stage is just a brute and will take a heavy toll both during the stage and later in the day. Cant wait ...

Enduro World Series Round 4, Ireland: Race Day Photo Epic
Great pics as ever. Love the one of Richie Rude, who muscles his bike, race face on while many in the crowd have facial expressions that say "how the hell did he ride that out? Again..." The crowd are so much a part of these events, particularly in Ireland.

Opinion: The Courage to Create
"Someone figured out how Sam Hill was riding" Can that someone tell me how? I see it, and it inspires me to ride better, but I will never do it. But, that inspiration engages me in a way that no bit of bike bling will ever do. I say that because I believe that almost all of sport is about the riding and only a bit is about the bike. Taking it forward by showing others to ride better puts the gear tech in its rightful place, IMO. Just sayin...

Cedric Gracia Gets Lusty in Aussie - Video
I have ridden the section in the third photo down dozens of times. For the record, I don't look even remotely like that...

Specialized Welcomes Jared Graves to the Team
That's true, the speculation has been around for a while. If you look at the EWS series results there is a big range of bike manufacturers represented in the to ten. That says to me that it is the rider, rather than the bike, which is the key to good results. As others have said in this thread spesh makes good bikes. I have had one for myself and one for my wife. The reason I will never buy another is their preoccupation with proprietary parts that you cannot get anywhere else and are very hard to upgrade. To me, it is a corporate tactic to building in obsolescence so that their bikes are turned over more often, and to force you to buy overpriced, high margin replacement parts. I wonder if Jared will get access to suspension parts that are made just for him to get a wider range of setup options on the stumpy? Also, I wonder how he will go on spesh tyres. The maxxis range that he has been on for years is both broad and high quality, and I'm not convinced that the spesh branded tyres are in the same class. I guess that the spesh DH riders smashed it this year, they can't be too bad. Personally, if I had a choice between an SB5C and a Stumpjumper at the same spec level and same price, I'd go with the Yeti any day. They are just the sexiest bikes you can buy, in my opinion.

Jared Graves - Over a Decade with Yeti Cycles
He may win, but he may not too. A lot has to go right to win the EWS overall, or to put it another way not much has to go wrong. And, he has strong competition, from Richie Rude (who Graves has been talking up for some time) and many of the fine French riders who regularly feature in the top ten. All in all he has a good chance, but is no certainty...

Jared Graves - Over a Decade with Yeti Cycles
I would like to see you try and follow him down (or up) a hard section. Without bothering to comment, his expertise would bring your twisted arguments to an end :)
