The Pinkbike Podcast: What Would It Take for You to Ride Hardline?
I just looked that up to see what you mean, I didn't know he'd done anything dodgy so I did my homework. Turns out the guy has been dropped by his record label and had lots of his shows/appearances cancelled for being quite an extreme homophobe. It would be nice to see this recommendation removed @christinachappetta.

Pinkbike Primer: 73.7 Kilometers, 6 Stages & 2,470 Meters of Descending - Leogang EDR World Cup 2024
@jayacheess: I'm fully on board the disco hate train, but honestly I don't think so in this case - yes the liaison times could/probably should be longer, but the actual overall distances is something I like and I'm a fan of. 70/80k is not that hard in a day for a reasonably fit person, especially for pro athletes. For me that's the endurance part of it, that's what makes it unique and interesting and really test a full, well rounded mtber, they should be able to pedal all day and still descend well and tbh I want to see them having a hard day out there and pedalling all day. Again, I see that the liaison times should be longer, but I'm a fan of the big overall distances

@chumba17: nonsense, my stab deluxe was amazing. Granted, the seat tube snapped when I bunny hopped off a curb, but nonsense I say

Video: Top 3 Slopestyle Runs from Crankworx Rotorua 2024
Hard disagree! I enjoyed watching these runs way more than the usual men's podium runs. To me, the men's stuff now is so far removed from what I can comprehend that I can't really follow it or appreciate it, it's like watching figure skating or bike acrobatics/artistic cycling to me. I enjoyed watching this way more. Just my opinion!

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
@Fmxexo: @luke7below: The way I read the statement seems to be that the organisers are saying this event is the world championships for slopestyle? If that is the case then as far as I'm aware it's not standard practice to get an appearance fee for a world championships in any sport? I only really know about triathlon, ironman in particular as I'm competing to qualify for world champs for that, and for that you do not get an appearance fee for the world champs. You get prizes for winning, pros have sponsors who pay them and will probably provide bonuses, but there is no appearance fee. I've got a few friends who have done it and don't get a fee. Same with Olympic triathlon and standard distance euro/world champs, I've got a few friends who raced them for team GB and didn't get an appearance fee. Wimbledon, tour de France etc are totally different as they are exhibitions rather than a sanctioned world champs event, and athletes definitely get appearance fees for exhibitions. I think it's the same for track, athletics etc in general as well although granted I don't race them so don't know. Maybe someone else knows about some other sports and can shed some light? I think the issue is more to do with working out where slopestyle/crankworks etc is right now. Athletes should definitely get renumeration for taking part in exhibition events and series events etc, of course they should, but I don't think they should for an official world champs event as, as far as I'm aware , that is line with other sports. Do the DH and XC guys and gals get an appearance fee for world champs? I'm not sure they do, and don't think it would be unfair if they didn't. Should they get an appearance fee for the world cup series? Damn right they should. Slopestyle should be the same, in my opinion.

@jaame: just an accident of industry, in my line of work he'd be getting jail time, and rightly so. Clear case of an abuse of his position, aka grooming
