Interview: Downhill Tire Tech with Schwalbe - Fort William DH World Champs 2023
I expect these interviews happened pre-race. But yeah... Hindsight 20/20.

Junior Results from the Fort William DH World Champs 2023
Mahoosive crash up just before deer gate. Was winded massively. Peak off helmet. Jersey literally ripped to shreds. Marshals took their sweet time red flagging cause spectators were having to shout riders to slow down.

How to Watch the 2023 World Champs
@waxed: I agree. I love watching racing but there is such thing as "too much of a good thing." Watching ~1hrs Womens and ~2hrs Mens on a Sunday or Monday evening was nicely manageable without affecting everything else I have to do in daily life. I've not bothered with it this year for many reasons but a standout reason is I just don't have the time to watch more footage, stretched out over a whole weekend. And people saying "you don't have to watch it"... Well of course I don't. I'm not. But it doesn't mean I don't have massive FOMO by not seeing it all. The highlight moments of racing are that much better when you've watched the rest of it for context.

Bike Check: Josh Bryceland's Cannondale Moterra LT - Ard Rock 2023
You might be enlightened to know that riders have obligations to their sponsors... Who says he chose to ride the Ebike??

First Look: RockShox Boxxer Ultimate Fork
My experience of Fox riders' reasoning why they don't like Rockshox is "They look too skinny". So they might just be tapping into that crowd.

Kona Previews New Process X Alloy & Carbon 153
I hope this is a trend emerging (given the Vitus Mythique had it too). I'm bloody fed up with messing around with internal routing whenever I'm spannering.

Interview: World Cup Brake Tech with TRP
Yeah I was wondering when the list of components was going to end... A lever, M/C body and caliper are all that's left to change!

Red Bull Hardline is Cancelled Due to Extreme Weather Conditions
You'd be asking all the riders, their associated entourage, ticket holders, red bull employees, media people, marshals, medical/first aid staff, land owners, rental companies for all the infrastructure, uplift vehicle providers and anyone else that I haven't thought of to be free one week following. It's a big ask. Organizing a single weekend event requires ALOT of stars to align to make it happen.

Video: Gee Atherton's Course Preview for Red Bull Hardline 2023
@Jmac888: It boggles my mind that it happens in mountain biking in general. It's one of those things that boils my piss. We all know that the strip of dirt we just rode down is an intentional route for riders to follow... So why on earth do people decide to stop and block the trail?!? You wouldn't do it on the motorway in the car... If you stop, get off to the side asap! Otherwise you're gonna get ~100kilos of me and bicycle coming clattering into you. So I agree, seeing professional riders seemingly have the same lack of awareness makes me wonder if some education is needed.
