@jrocksdh: UCI rule preventing mix matched wheels prevents it hitting the World Cup just yet.

@fecalmaster: Lots of people burn out on competition so I get why Semenuk is going in other directions. But at the same time, the only 2 guys I know who don't need comps to keep their status are McCaskill & Akrigg. I'm sure Semenuk is happier outside the competition spotlight, but I'd imagine it's going to get way harder to stay relevant in his genre. I have no idea where I'm going with this.....

Review: NS Snabb 150 Plus 1
@alexcgevans: don't forget those of with bum knees who don't want the expense, weight and toxic battery of e-bikes. I've loved having a teeny tiny granny gear when I've blown out my legs cranking around on the rest of the ride but gotta get that last long miserable climb of a truly epic and delirious day....or hour. :D

@fecalmaster: I don't think he's fake. He seems self depricating and focused. Dude looks like he expects great things of himself and when he falls short, he takes it out on himself. When he did the interview about the triple crown, he sounded like he was just blaming himself for not being an obstacle at the last stop to Rogatkin, I took it as "I blame myself for him winning the last round b/c I wasn't there to fight him." When he came across the line, I think he felt like many people that watched it, that he'd done a winning run because what he'd finally landed cleanly and gracefully couldn't be duplicated because it was so complex. He looked like a guy whose personal demons had been beaten and he could finally smile.

I've only ever heard that coming to ride during Crankworx, you have to skip stuff due to taped off events and that the lines are long and the trails are dusty and blown out that week. So I'd venture to guess that is a deterrent for many who have gone in the past. But at the same time, I'm so sick of seeing all the guys I know that ride posting pics of them ALL there this week. And I'm in North Carolina, USA. Feels like half my riding community is there...and they're not posting pics of pros. They're in Squamish and back country riding at Whistler.

I think Rheeders tricks are harder to learn & link together in any sequence. He's doing multiple tricks in the air that aren't even spinoffs of something. He's literally scrambling stuff that shouldn't go together while in the air & landing them all clean. Rogatkin is literally just spinning out until he lands something. It's taken him 4 years to land a clean run and they had to remove multiple hits on course for him to get a course simple enough for him to knock out his showstoppers. I think the thing that would be the game changer is that Rheeder might could learn to land multiple spins like Rogatkin, but could Rogatkin actually throw Rheeders combos?

wonder why no one has come up with a set of pegs at the bottom bracket with pedals mounted on it if they're going chainless? Or maybe a set of 125mm cranks mounted at the same position on the clock to a standard BB? E out there?

Final Results: EWS Whistler 2018
@hirvi: It's been a pretty intense session, and it's been going for longer than the pros train to ramp up for an event. And he has a full time job on top of it. Not to mention, from what I understand, he even has a bit of a local's trail knowledge. I'm sure you've noticed the the BC crew did exceptionally well as compared to their results in other parts of the world on the EWS circuit. I'd say the series even stacked the cards in his favor to have the pinnacle event for his training efforts to be on home soil. He's been given as much and sometimes MORE support than elite level riders when you take into account he never had to get on a plane or eat foreign food or experience jet lag, language barriers, travel stress. This series has been as real as you can get when trying to replicate the advantages of a fully backed pro....because fully backed pros aren't incredibly well taken care as is.
