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.

Video: Tracy Moseley & Manon Carpenter Explore Scottish Highland Trails in 'Back to Why'
The highlands have a few good gems for riding for sure. They put lights on, on the Torridon descent next to the bottom slabs though, should have just held.her chappin for the couple of minutes to the bottom. :)

Video: Brendan Fairclough is Joined by Sam Pilgrim as They Try to Ride Over his House
@commental: we have had our win, that's it for the next 20+ years, it's a little like the football team getting into a finals or when we won the last game at the old Wembley ;) More once in a lifetime than a reffurendum vote in the UK. Haha.

Kinda struggling to see how the football is going ahead by your logic. These guys are doing their jobs are they not? Maybe everyone from England would have felt better if the Rugby had not gone ahead either...

Video: Sam Hill Rides the New Nukeproof Giga on his Home Trails
That is the best sound track a video can have. Sounds like fighter jet flying over. Sam Hill rides in shorts.... the riding community moves back to shorts.

Bike Check: The BREWser, a 184mm Travel, Crazy-Slack Experimental Gearbox Bike
You couldnt ride this thing, you would have it hanging on the wall in your livingroom instead.

Video: Tire Pressure is Way More Important Than You Might Think - The Explainer
The solution to that balloon, leaking sidewall tubeless thing... tubes :) My magic numbers: Dh casing tyres (Uk in tracks) 21/23 in the dry 19/21 in the wet. Recently the 2 FR youtubers who are riding a lot together just now indicated that they are the magic numbers for them too. Glenlivet.... 35-50psi and some lightweight tyres, there is something fun about easy red trail centres and light tyres at high pressures, the bike fair shifts down the hill.

Pinkbike Poll: What Bike Parts Are You Having Trouble Finding?
Supply chain in many sectors is totally screwed up just now with prices on the increase. One of the big issues is that there are only so many containers for shipping in the world and covid stuff is taking priority. Working in R&D and with supply chain the world is a crazy place just now.

Review: 2021 Commencal Supreme DH 29/27 - DH Bike Week
I would love to try one of these for longer than I have currently. Totally underwhelmed by its performance (times showed that too being significantly slower). Might have been setup differences between my bikes and the Commy.

AusCycling Will Not be Entering Riders for the Maribor DH World Cup
This is a good and sensible decision from Aus. If only the rest of the world could start being as sensible we wouldn't be in the mess we are in with COVID. It might change the world economy for some time to come. All of a sudden a holiday to the sun isnt the top priority. Interesting to hear some companies in China are planning to let visitors from overseas in at the end of Q3 2022! That is some pretty forward planning so that people know what is happening. Over here its tomorrow we are making plans for if you are lucky.
