I ride and race Dh as well as trail riding, I am not a keyboard warrior and ride master, I am current Scottish vets Dh champion and have done my time to make educated comments based on experience. I train hard for racing.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
I remember my ironhorse Azure weighing under 23lb with a short stem and firm but longer fork and a slightly shorter shafted rear shock. It was considred a little strange but it worked. Forward or not forward geometry. Short stems just make sense.

Fuel Up: 5 of My Favourite Homemade Ride Snacks
@WAKIdesigns: High carb is great for getting fat. Especially if you don't exercise enough to burn those carbs off. High carb... the thing America gave us. Do what works for you and your goals I say.

Biking is good, but its only part of life. If you think its the only sport then I feel sorry for you!

Review: Vee Tire Co's Super-Sticky Flow Snap WCE Tires
I rode a Vee on the rear of a bike I had a shot of for a couple of weeks. I was impressed with its hook up, grip and acceleration, even in damp conditions. It certainly doesn't ride like a minion for those thinking it looks like one! Good to see new brands coming onto the market. Tyres wear out, why buy an expensive bike then expect the most important part of the bike to last forever!

Final Results: British National Downhill - Round 2 Fort William
You have to love PB. Someone makes a point and gets negative propped for it. Probably the point gabriel-mission9 is making is... That only 5 of the top 20 in the world were there. (Pretty much the same that 5 of the top 20 were there from last years WC). 2018 WC standings. 1. Pierron - NOT at BDS 2. Hart - Yes at BDS 3. Brosnan - NOT 4. Vergier - NOT 5. Greenland - Yes 6. Macdonald - NOT 7. Bruni - NOT 8. Shaw - NOT 9. Gee... of course 10. Fearon - NOT 11. Gwin - NOT 12. Thirion - NOT 13. Blenkinsop - NOT 14. Wallace - NOT 15. Iles - NOT 16. Harrison - Yes 17. Gutierrez - NOT 18. Wilson - Yes 19. Lucas - NOT 20. Meas - NOT This kinda means that we know Gee and Danny are up to speed on the Fort William track and probably have a little more to give in a WC and the exciting bit is the 15 we dont know about... pretty sure they will be turning up soon. Gee and Danny have shown their hand in the game, put a message out there too. Rock on the WC at Fort William. :)

No, the lower woods were different to the WC woods, I think that Rachel was just up there testing mostly, might have even had telemetry on on Saturday. There was a wee bit of wind but not too bad.
