Mondraker Announces the "Safety Check" Bike For the 2022 UCI DH World Cup & World Championships

Feb 14, 2022 at 5:57
by Ed Spratt  

The Mondraker Summum Maiden run together with the UCI technical delegate Jorge García, will be in charge of certifying the safety of each circuit of the World Cup and the UCI dh World Champs. The "Safety Check" will have the task of ensuring the safety of the participants.

2022 sees the introduction of pre-race course checks at the DH World Cups and World Champs, these will involve a rider completing a run down the course checking for anything that could cause a safety issue. The UCI has sought the help of Mondraker to provide a special bike for these duties. UCI Technical Delegate, Jorge Garcia, will be responsible for inspecting and ensuring that all aspects of this year's course are safe before riders get between the tape. Jorge has a background in DH and has raced at multiple World Cups over the past few years. At each race, Jorge will be tasked with completing multiple runs on the bike to look out for any features that may look fine but are potentially dangerous or unsafe when being ridden.

bigquotesImproving safety in a sport like DH is not easy. You must consider a lot of factors and variables. Even with a thousand eyes on it, walking the circuit 15 times in a week isn't enough. A jump that looks perfect, tested at the real speed the riders are going through, can turn into a very dangerous jump.Jorge García, UCI Technical Delegate

bigquotesThe proposal for this new UCI programme was developed from scratch at Mondraker: the name, colours, logo... The idea came from the colours that are related to safety and rescue, as we see in our day-to-day life on planes, helicopters and rescue boats - but giving a different feel to the Mondraker colours, turning them into a very dark metallic blue, combined with a very vivid fluorine red and a cream-white that takes a chroma more to green. This combination makes the colours really stand out once they are on the frame. In addition, we added a satin look to do something different from what we usually do. We want people to know when they see the Summum Maiden Run coming down that the race is about to start.Ricardo Leme, CTG Design Manager at Mondraker, responsible for the graphic development

"We're not sure if this is safe for riders to ride, what shall we do?"
"Let's send down a rider to see if they survive"
"great, that way if it is unsafe we'll know because they will fall off.... and then we stop so no one will get hurt"
"hummmm, are we solving the issue?"
"we'll paint it a special colour"

 Ski racing has used forerunners for this purpose for a very long time. The forerunner does not need to be going 100% of race pace to assess safety, they just need to know what they are looking for.

 This is actually super important. They have to make sure all safety ramps for drops are removed before the race.

 I'm sure this is the last step of many to make sure a course is ready to run. It will have been inspected, walked, practiced on etc... Nice to have one last run through so one of the racers who should have nothing to do other than focus on going insanely fast doesn't also have to worry there may be sh#t or people in the way.

 @Muckal: By race day, everyone involved knows how that do or die jump is working or not working. That is not what this is for. The clearing rider immediately before the race is ensure that the course is clear and ready to race.
And ski racing absolutely has large borderline unsafe jumps, and just like in DH, they sometimes get worked on during the week to make things safer. Practice, inspection, and jury inspections all exist for those reasons.

 You guys realize this has been a thing for a long time, right?
And it makes absolute sense. The forerunner, unlike someone going on foot, will notice things like a big rock in the main line which is about to break loose and needs to be removed etc, so these things can be remedied if necessary. The forerunner´s job is not to check whether the rider field is capable of hitting any jumps, but rather if any jump has deteriorated enough to cause a safety hazard. It´s supposed to be a last safety measure in what ideally should be a well prepared race weekend with lots of already ongoing track assessment.
IDK why everyone is acting as if the UCI is knowingly sending this individual into certain death. Especially since the forerunner always is an accomplished rider and not some rando dude they picked from the crowd.
It´s also not in any way supposed to mellow down the tracks.

What it also is, is a marketing ploy. This bike is just another advertising banner for which the UCI can bag a check. Not ethically questionable in any way, but imho something that should be put directly into price money for the riders.

 @bnflynn: at what point are they going to send the forerunner down then? Before every category? Some tracks get blown out during the race of the elite mens' field alone, especially with changing weather etc.. What if a rock loosens and rolls into a dangerous place in between? What if a spectator crosses the track in front of a rider? It's nice marketing for Mondraker, though.

I have been riding long enough to know that any wheel can be destroyed on any ride given the unique set of factors they are exposed to. However, these ones felt different. Riddled in dings and flat spots without riding them that aggressively, regular tire flats etc. Went back to my trusty Flows on 350's. None of the same problems. At first I wondered if it had to do with my suspension setup or the new bike. Nope. Seemed to be the wheel. I'd love to believe E13's are better or I just had a dud set... but given the investment in new products one crap experience like that is enough to turn you off to a product given how many other options there are and especially when you have had really good experiences on others (DT350/Flow).

Sick looking bike, although for parity I may be biased as a Mondraker owner.

Glad to see extra safety measures being considered although @Richard01 nailed it. One of the scaries things any of us have recently seen wwas the delayed reponse to Brook MacDonalds back breaking crash, and therefore testing extraction to be executed withing a specified timeframe would add credibility top the sport.

Where did David Vasques go? Congratulations to Jorge but did I miss a press release on his appointment and an introduction to him and his "background in DH" ?

If this is the Jorge Garcia Vidal as listed on roots and rain i'm not sure i'd mention my "background in DH" if i'd never qualified for a race: www.rootsandrain.com/rider9261/jorge-garcia-vidal/results/filters/seriesgroups244

Maybe he just wasnt interested in taking on the role at this stage in life.

 That´s not what this is though. I´m the first to complain about the UCI dumbing down the sport, but that´s not what i get from this announcement.
He is supposed to check for track deterioration, not assess rider capability.
Being on a bike he´ll notice a loose rock in the main line which is about to get knocked loose, which someone on fot would not notice. A broken off root which sticks out and may catch the front wheel of a rider. He´ll feel when a jump´s takeoff has become too muddy and will inevitably suck the necessary speed from riders. Things like that. Imho a good change. Some jumps can easily be cut out if necessary without altering the character of the course, or at the very least simply throw in some gravel or whatever to pack that section down a little.
I´ve had a race where a puddle formed in a grass section, deep enough for your front wheel to immediately sink into the mud to about axle height. Considering riders hit that section at full speed, someone should have noticed this section needed to be redirected. Yet me and a lot of other came to a very sudden stop in that puddle and got thrown out the front at full speed. I can only assume the forerunner would indeed help to identify such blatant safety hazards on a track before half of the field inevitably crashes on it.
I did not however understand this announcement as them looking for a way to check whether certain features should exist on a track in the first place. Imho this is actually a rather good idea and even though afaik this has already been done at the races anyway, making it more public is a good step in legitimizing the sport.

 @Loki87: mmm, nah, there's training on race day before finals and then each category's finals. In the end any of the 200 riders can be one breaking a rock loose or exposing a root whatsoever, and a random guy passing by before each category starts
is useless in that regard, tracks are everchanging.

In rally theres a '00' car, and then '0' car before the participants, but those are just to let spectators know the real ones come next so they GTFO the road. Is for the safety of spectators, not the drivers.

In this case, just a paid ad.

 To be honest, they do. However they didnt make a song and dance about it. I frequently attend the Fort William round here in Scotland and have worked on the track crew before. There is a group of course sweepers who are the first people down the track at the start of every session and also sweep at the end of each session. I am pretty sure this is a UCI requirement at all world cups. I know at Fort William the course sweepers were good local racers who weren't quite at World Cup level. This is simply just a marketing exercise from the UCI and Mondraker

  • 4 0
 @Tambo:
It may seem like a good idea, but imho it´s really not.
We´ve seen these things in other sports. Athletes are a special breed and when in competition mode, the last thing they can do is realistically assess risk or make a risk vs reward assessment.
For them too much is at stake, be it bragging rights, social and self image, sponsors, motivation, self confidence etc.
Often times an athlete complaining will lead to negative outcome for him/her.
Athletes are also the most enthusiastic people involved in any sport. And while that at its core is a good thing, certain assessments should be made by an unbiased third party to ensure their safety.
That´s why in so many sports athletes and athlete commitees have voted against very important rule changes and held back the development of a sport.
Take MMA for example. A lot of great athletes there, but if you asked them whether the rule which allows the corner to throw in the towel should be removed, they´d overwhelmingly would vote against that rule. Yet many fighters´ health has been saved from their own ego because a coach had the balls to pull their fighter from the fight against their own will. They´d all ratehr go out on their shield and die in that cage than admit they got bested. None of those guys would ever admit to themselves they´re scared or unwilling to take damage because it fundamentally would undermine their ability to participate in the sport in the first place.
So an outside commission making these decisions and assessing risks is fundamentally a good thing.
Add to that the fact that the rider field is predominantely very young males which on top represent a very specific selection of individuals with rather specific thrill seeking tendencies, you have a recipe for disaster if you leave necessary safety precautions to them.
So if you ask me, it´s a very good thing these guys can solely focus on being the wildmen they are while a third party implements basic but useful safety measures like this one to make what they do more safe.

 WTF is this? So a "track safety check bike" is just a bike with non-stock colours (unless theres something else special about this "special bike" that we're not being told about)?

Surely the news here is that the UCI are doing riden track safety checks, not that Mondraker are sponsoring the event. Why is the article focused on the sponsor of the news and not the actual news? The actual news story here seems quite important and significant to the sport considering some events last season, but what's being reported on is the marketing bullshit about special colours on a bike.
  • 2 0
 Because this has already been a thing. If anything the UCI is simply increasing the effort by upping the frequency of track checks and in the process they found a way to monetize the whole thing.
Basically this is not newsworthy besides the fact Mondraker needs to get their money´s worth in advertising exposure.

 For anyone who is unaware, the UCI has had course sweepers at World Cups for years. These are usually fast local racers who are just below World Cup standard. They are the first riders on track when each session opens and to a run to inspect the track and make sure that nothing untoward is on track, like loose rocks or other track damage. They also sweep the track at the end of each session to do the same thing and note any track problems and make sure there are no riders left on track. This isnt the UCI starting to care more about safety or anything. It is a blatant marketing scheme by the UCI and Mondraker. They are just publicizing something they have already been doing
