Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
In the Netherlands there was a court case between the judo team and the national judo federation. They had to wear a judo suit from a certain brand picked by the federation (also sponsored of course) and were not happy with that. The judge ruled in favour of the judo team, so they could use their own suits. In this case the judge argued that the judo suit is 'technical equipment', which the athlete should be able to choose freely. Apparently the judo suit has a big impact on the athletes performance. This is of course a judgement call. In football the jersey is not considerd technical equipment, but the shoes are. In biking surely the bike is technical, but the question is if the helmet is as well. I would say it's difficult to prove that it has a big impact on performance, so probable Jenny just has to wear whatever they give her. With the sunglasses I can actually imagine that she would be able to wear her own. In any case, if UCI doesn't do anything, she should go to court and try to get it resolved there. Would be a real shame if she can't take part in any world champs/olympics any more.

Win: Bryn Atkinson Replica Norco Range Bike and Riding Kit
The fact that Bryn delivers the bike in person and goes riding with you is actually pretty cool.

Strange that it took Graves so long to make the new Enduro work for him.

Giant Reign Advanced 2018 - First Ride
@funkzander: They specifically write that it happens when you go downhill. So I would say it can only be a tire clearance issue (which still doesn't make any sense to me...).

@KondziuNS: Over here there are e-bikes that go up to 45km/h. They are indeed registered and have a license plate, so fully legal.

The Sickest Trail Ever: Vink Line in Châtel Bikepark - Video
I was there as well last week and I have to admit that some of those tire tracks on the inside of the turns are mine... The berms are really steep, so it's either full speed or staying low...

@gonecoastal: The Nicolai has a weight limit of 105 kg. I'm not that heavy, but I personally wouldn't buy a frame with such a weight limit. Just feels like they are trying too hard to save weight where you shouldn't.
