Exclusive: Richie Rude & Jared Graves Failed Drug Test at EWS France
@chriskneeland: I am not sure if this is the first test, but it seems to be the first positive... To be clear, ews welcomes and requests the testing, but the resources are generally slim to carry them out, if any mechanism exists at all (in the case of events completely non aligned)... From the standpoint of an athlete I would want enduro to be a part of usac, uci, and the Olympic movement in general for many reasons, one of them being regular testing... It is about time that regular testing happens, and for the sport to grow it is necessary... Iike I said before though, I wonder if enduro is bigger than these two past champions... If they are suspended, what will happen at the top level? What will happen with sponsors? It's going to get semi interesting...

@chriskneeland: in the case that you raced a ces ews qualifier, you would not be subject to any anti doping if it's not usac... Don't know why esc round be different... Since there is no body with a mandate to administer testing in this case... Pop an adderral before stages... shit, take epo and hgh with testosterone... We'll never know... In France, you'd be subject to afld regardless if the uci were involved... The ews clearly states that they cooperate with any anti doping agency with jurisdiction.... So the athletes know, and it's all legit...

@chriskneeland: no series in cycling, nor major worldwide sports league conducts their own testing... virtually all sports outsource this to wada, or a government body like afld... You are envisioning some scenario where ews is in charge of testing, but this almost never exists in the world of sport... You want things to work a way that they don't work...

@chriskneeland: ah but... Enduro is often under ffc sanction in France making it uci affiliated, and furthermore the afld can test in any event in France uci affiliated or not... It's a government agency... You just can't avoid it dude... The tests are legitimately administered... They failed... For substances with clear benefits for enduro racers... Now they get the chance to make their statements and we await the findings of the adjudication... I wonder though in the event they are suspended, if they will sue the ews for inclusion after the suspension... Or if ews will align it's rule with most other sports which allow athletes to return to competition after a suspension.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
My enduro came with some parts of the frame wrapped, and more wrap included to pretty much cover the whole thing. The costs to apply the wrap is prolly high, so they don't do the whole thing, but at least they give you the stuff to do yourself, or the lbs can apply it...

First Ride: Polygon's New XquarOne DH
i get what you are asking... you can build into a spring an inherent level of damping... and i wonder the same thing as you... i am sure there is more to come from this system...

Results - XC Vallnord World Cup 2018
i am not sure that in the end it matters so much... we will see... GK was killing it race before last too... its good to see more of a pure climber in XC...

Results - XC Vallnord World Cup 2018
@bikeinbih: so true- i was really surprised that Bart and Rob were not really explaining the tactic... GK made a good tempo that put NS on the edge, then pushed a bit over on the climbs to force NS to chase back... he had to push the descents and even sometimes on the flat sections too while GK could recover a bit... NS left a lot in the dirt until finally he had nothing... GK just stretched the elastic repeatedly until it broke... and Bart and Rob were just going on about how NS was so easy to come back on the descents... but each time he had to pay... and eventually ran out of money...

The Final Randoms - Eurobike 2018
so impressed with that bike.... but you know, the UCI bike rules have nothing to do with ppl who want to ride fast for fun... i might buy this bike just to finally be able to ride fast on a road bike!
