5 Key Stats From Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
DH is no different than any other sport in the sense that the top tier talent gets rich and those who should barely be there get virtually nothing in comparison to the top guys and gals. Its the same in snowboarding, ufc, boxing, football, soccer, baseball, golf, auto racing etc. The local pro who gets lucky and qualifies for x games is going to get nothing in comparison to a Shaun White. The local course pro on the golf course doesn't get Tiger woods money. Why should the guy getting 58th place 15 seconds off the podium deserve to be paid big bucks? They should be happy they have the opportunity to travel the world and test themselves against the best in the world, and if they are truly talented they will eventually make better money. In the real world you earn what your skills command. Not making enough money, better up your skills. If anything the problem with pay in DH is the top guys and gals should be making more not the people struggling to qualify.

Kolb should have been nominated for rider of the year, Kid made the biggest jump in results this year, on a brand new Rig. Great to watch an underdog do it in real time!

Opinion: Red Bull's Impact on Mountain Bike Racing is Understated
Redbull has done more for DH than any other company. The coverage the sponsors, the events like rampage and hardline. We should all be grateful for that. As far as the Grundig days one could argue the stars of the sport got paid comparitively more in those days. Much more

Video: 7 Enduro Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
@DBoyle: The fact that they didn't say any of them surpassed the Enduro says it all. 4 years old now and everyone else still can't find that level. The fact that they are known for cracking is probably the only reason people get rid of them.
