How Tight? Examining the UCI's Clothing Rules for DH Racing
The opposite in my opinion. As always with her, it's about the outfit, not the riding. Ahh well. Something to keep her in the spotlight because her results no longer do it.

Super G Results: Snow Bike World Championships 2024
I knew there was a top level DHer known for being a groomer but he's not listed in the results. Must be grooming something other than pistes.

The Complete Guide to the 2024 World Cup DH Teams
They have the Gen S team. Realistically, which female has been available and worthy of being on that team? Only Vali and Nina have moved in the last few years, both to teams that were also without a top level female.

Bex Baraona Off Yeti & Without 2024 Team
@ridedigrepeat: I don't think she did have a stand out year. She had one stand out result in an otherwise average at best year. I do think the big teams are under-represented in the women's field, but whilst EDR coverage is so poor it must be hard for teams to justify the expense.

Dates & Venues Announced for British National Enduro Series 2024
@kiksy: No - the series does not appeal to me. I already mentioned my reasons above; inconsistent formats, inconsistent race quality and there's no elite class. I will do at least 6 races from BEMBA associated bodies, but there is no incentive for me to target BNES rounds As someone else mentioned, Innes Graham finished 8th overall after doing just one round. What's the point in me competing for places in an age class when there's world level riders able to drop in and clean up?

Dates & Venues Announced for British National Enduro Series 2024
@pmbaenduro: It's not on Instagram which is the one I use. The demand for a national series is not there in it's current format... Doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It doesn't need a standalone series, I agree the multi organiser format is the most effective way of doing it, but that doesn't mean there can't be discussions about how to get riders invested in the series. Surely this should be an active topic to ensure the sport is sustainable going forwards. I have tried to provide feedback as a rider because I think a healthy national series is important for the sport but you're not willing to hear it. I regularly do some BNES events by chance, surely the aim should be to convert riders like me doing 2 or 3 events to completing the full series?

Dates & Venues Announced for British National Enduro Series 2024
@pmbaenduro: It is very little effort to add basic info like entry links and series standings to your website. Required info on socials is not there - you've still not posted 2024 dates. My issue is not with the event organisers, it's the fact as a nation series it's simply not working but you refuse to acknowledge that. Without the military riders getting their paid entries, you would have less than 20 riders. You have had offers of help which you've chosen to ignore.

Dates & Venues Announced for British National Enduro Series 2024
@kiksy: At no point have i suggested anyone is getting rich or having an easy ride. I am pointing out that the BNES series is not well supported and have offered some feedback on how it could do better. Some of the bits I mention genuinely are 'a bit of effort', for example the website with no information or the social media that has only had 4 posts this year.

@a-green: I wouldn't say i've thrown a tantrum, i've provided feedback and suggestions from a rider point of view then pointed out that it's been dismissed. What is the alternative approach, as the rider reps haven't been made public?

@pmbaenduro: Ok, I've tried but rider feedback clearly isn't wanted. None of the above is insurmountable with a bit of effort, and you have ignored offers of help because you aren't willing to relinquish control.
