Review: Specialized's 2FO Clip 2.0 Shoes Are Designed for Descending
These shoes are awesome. For winter riding they dry out insanely fast. They may feel light and seem like they lack protection but they are robust and last and protect you well enough. Their flat pedal versions are a mile ahead of five ten in my view. Love them!

Britain to Remove Tariffs on Non-EU Bicycles in Event of No-Deal Brexit
As a Uk director of a large global org, I have to write a weekly Brexit update for my executive. In the years of trying to work out how it is going to play and out and what the impacts will be, I stupidly had not thought about coming to the Pinkbike forum where all the experts on the issue would be. Silly me:-)

Interview: Dr. Chris Leatt on the Neck Brace, Collarbone Breaks, Safety Over Fashion & More
Im just glad to see the collarbone myth slowly being debunked as ive met many people who didnt want to wear one for this reason. I think a lot of this around the 'choice' to wear one is about whether your personality works around the precautionary principle or not in the way you approach the sport. I see it as personal choice. I wear one for DH and have done for about 7 years. Ive had two big crashes which because of the way I landed on my head and twisted and compressed it, I believe, as a non-medical professional, would have been worse if I hadnt been wearing one. Thats a personal view, not based on science. I guess the only point I would make is that people should have free choice on this, away from peer pressure and 'myths'. The number of times Ive had dicks mock me for wearing one, because they thought they were cooler without makes me laugh but it does impact on peoples enthusiasm for them.

Video: Carson Storch Redefines Train Hopping in this Raw 100
The under the video reads like the marketing guy had too much caffeine. The first paragraph reads like an action movie trailer.

Court Awards $150,000 to Mountain Biker Who Fell From Chairlift
The court weren't ruling on his actions, they were ruling on whether there were adequate procedures in place to ensure that someone wouldn't get left on the lift at night which is enough to state that the accident was their fault as they created the conditions for it. The decisions this biker made, rightly or wrongly, in a legal sense only occurred because the lift operator failed in their duty of care. He could have stayed on, he might have survived the night, who knows but that isnt why they paid out.

Video: Blind Mountain Biker Sends Big Gaps
Dude you are an inspiration to us all. Remember that all those morons who picked on you at school will be flipping burgers for the rest of their lives in mediocre unhappiness. You my friend will rise above it all. Inspiring people is far more powerful than anything they will ever achieve. Keep shredding. I hope you meet you at Rogate one day.

Video: Gee Atherton VS Mike Levy - Humbled
Ive met Gee a couple of times and ridden with him once on a coaching session. Him and Dan are lovely guys. Yeah they are serious about what they do but they are really relaxed and pleasant around people. They are very grounded, down to eart individuals. Bearing in mind their skills, the fact that they were super pumped for the tiny improvements we made on the day, I would say thats a great measure of the person. Im serious at work, but that doesnt mean Im a serious person.
