Video: The Rise Of The Women Of Enduro
Thats the way the EWS works. Unless you pay the team tax you don't get a team mentioned on anything official nor will you feature in a lot of coverage unless you're slaying it.

Qualifying Results from the Val di Sole DH World Championships 2021
@neimbc: Its because in theory the field could be huge as the number of riders entered by any countries gov. body is variable, so they have a quali to cut it down to only the most competitive riders plus the protected ones (if they don't qualify).

Results: Short Track XCC Qualifying - Val di Sole World Championships 2021
They appear to base the qualification on top 20. Would hate to have been #21 in race 2....

Review: BikeYoke Revive 2.0 Dropper Post
Comes at a premium! Have you seen the price of bikes recently? This post is a bargain compared to some of the bike industry nowadays.

First Look: Hope Releases Three New Clipless Pedals
Well.... Would you rely on Shimano cleats to be in stock these days? So it probably matters not whether they're proprietary or not for a good while, the only place you'll get cleats for them is from Hope anyhow. It also avoids any potential lawsuits over design copying.

Video: Gee Atherton Shares Footage of the Biggest Crash of his Career
As long as you can afford cover then basically everyone in the USA and UK and everywhere else is all paying the same to some degree. You just pay more / less depending on how efficient your healthcare systems are and quality of care is a factor of both efficiency and cost to you. No one gets it for free though. Where it varies is when you can't afford it. In the UK everyone who can pay, also covers the people who cant. In the US thats still in a 'trial phase' shall we say.

8 Things That Didn't Happen in the Bike Industry Last Month - Round Up
I agree they aren't interested right now, but as logistics and stock management systems continue to automate, and 'in house' marketing becomes less relevant than online presence (hence the need for sales reps etc. diminishes) it seems like its the way of the future. I see more and more brands going direct and they're undercutting their rivals while maintaining their margins in the process. It's only a matter of time before the major markets like the US and EU get their own centralised distribution channels from the big players I would say.

8 Things That Didn't Happen in the Bike Industry Last Month - Round Up
@salespunk: but... If as a store stocking a brand I say to you ' You can have terms and pay 70% of RRP, or you pay up front but get it for 50%', which would you go for?
