Rampage Updates: Storch Out, Zink Bruised Lung, Vestavik Injured [Updated with Videos]
This may be an unpopular view.... Ive always loved Rampage and have nothing but the highest levels of respect for the riders. That said I have found the last couple of events increasingly uncomfortable to watch as the risk of serious harm has increased. The number of people getting injured in practice this year surely ought to pose a question or two here. Im sure Im not the only one who wants to hear of another life changing injury or a death but Im starting to feel like its only a matter of time. If the riders are scared (as they say they are) and the viewers are relieved they get down, I just wonder how much of a healthy thing that is.

UCI Helps Rescue 165 Refugees From Afghanistan
Am I missing something. It doesn't seem like UCI have done anything yet. Maybe in the near future they may accommodate some people. It feels like their association with the word 'help' here is pretty loosely defined...

Trek Finds Carbon Frames Produce Nearly 3 Times the CO2 of Alloy in its First Sustainability Report
Trek should be offered credit for putting themselves out there in such detail while other companies offer very little other than greenwashing in their efforts. I also applaud them for not just focusing on Co2 but also other impacts. While I appreciate that there are many people who dont care (because the impact hasnt yet hit their doorstep), there are some of us that want to make purchasing choices based on these factors. Just like Ive moved over to Endura because of their more ethical approach to running a bike business, this kind of report and the clear effort put in really does make me want to consider Trek as my next bike, whenever that is. Sure Trek can try harder but you can only manage what you can measure and this shows effort and the correct direction of travel. I hope we see others following suit.

Tinker Juarez Announces Split with Cannondale in Now Deleted Social Media Post
Any brand can decide who represents them best. How many brands have supported an athlete through retirement to death. Its a commercial arrangement. If Cannondale price his value at one point and he prices his value at another and they part ways then its just business. He raced at a time when riders made a tonne of money in the first heyday of the sport, Im sure he is not poor.

Mountain Biker's Life Saved After Passing Doctor Performs Trailside Tracheotomy
Im hoping the 'he'd never done it on a live human' was a typo. I assume it was meant to be 'conscious' human?
