Yeah his stuff is always fun. He’s not stuck on himself at all even though he has incredible riding talent.

@TheR: yes but we don’t have laws that prevent them from literally billing you into bankruptcy. Our system is one of the worst in the world as far as per capita expense vs. benefit.

Mavic Placed into Receivership in France
Had a pair of their enduro UST type rims that I bought in 2014. Ran em hard for 4 years. No issues. Could fit any tire I wanted on them tubeless. Anything. Never understood what all the fuss was about with the difficulty of running tubeless. All I had to do was put the tires on, put the sealant in and pump em up. No tape, no seating issues at all. Now that I’m in the tape world... I get it. Can’t understand why no one makes true tubeless rims aside from Mavic. I used J bend spokes on em they had a proprietary nipple holder thing but that was no big deal. In fact they were the first set of rims I ever laced up. Still have a pair of their waterproof cycling boots. Used em on many a wet winter ride. Sad to see this happen to them. I would’ve bought another set of those rims but they stopped selling them so I’ve gone with Spank which are excellent btw. But a set of EN rims laced to Hope hubs was a damn good wheel set. RIP Mavic.

Downhill Southeast Series Releases Updated Summer Racing Schedule
The ESC is one of the best run race organizations going. My son and I have been racing them for the last few years. Absolutely top notch all the way. This situation however requires a different kind of safety. One for which we as a species are ill equipped for. It actually requires for people not to socialize directly. That’s not exactly the MO at any race I’ve ever been to. DH races are a party in the woods. All kinds of contacts and friends are made at races. That’s generally a good thing. Except for now sadly. Trying to minimize this or wish it away won’t make it go away. My next door neighbor is an ER nurse here in Montco PA. Just ask her if you think this thing isn’t real. My other neighbor two doors down was just carried out in an ambulance Sunday a week ago. This thing isn’t gone. You could get it and be completely unaware that you have it all the while spreading it around. Or you could get it and be in for a really rough time. It sucks it really does. I confounded a new youth racing team this year, and am building a new bike for the season. Anybody that would question my love, passion and loyalty to this sport doesn’t know me. However if we open things up too soon then cases and the corresponding hospitalization and grief that goes with them will spike up. Making it necessary to shut down all over again, which makes everything that even done up till now for naught. We will all ride and race again. The passion runs too deep for us not to. Let’s just get through this first.
