dh is my passion, but have been focusing more on all-mtn "Enduro" style riding these last few years. I used to race with sponsorship. But only do occasional races for fun now. I ride Moto almost as much as bikes. Currently have a Husaberg FE 570 S.

Exclusive: Richie Rude & Jared Graves Failed Drug Test at EWS France
I hope for some good luck to both, in dealing with WADA. They are the authority here and have a poor reputation for cooperating with and even simple communication with athlets. There have been a few athletes from other sports that have recently had their careers essentially finished prematurely, due to lack of available process and access to info, after potentially testing positive. WADA sentencings are cretailed for olympic competition and therefor the competition bans they hand out are devastating for these other non Olympic sports. 4 year bans....18 month suspensions prior to final decisions. Timelines that end careers in these extreme sports.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
I wrapped my current frame before building it. Being a bare and perfectly clean frame made it pretty easy. However I did this to help protect against potential damage to the carbon. Where I live the terrain is consistently rocky so theres a constant barrage of flinging rocks and pebbles. The idea being that chipped paint and exposed carbon layers will lead to a problem earlier. I didnt do it for looks.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Listen to Music While Riding?
For years I had to have music when riding. At some point I didn't have headphones that worked or fit in my helmet and had to ride without for a little while. Its been a few years now since riding with music. I've tried but I no longer like it.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
I wash on an "as needed" basis, or before major maintenance. Dont worry much about dust, but do keep dirt from building up. So depending on weather and season, the frequency can vary a lot. Chain does gets a regular wipe down and lube though.
