Will a 29er End Up On a World Cup DH Podium This Year? - Pinkbike Poll
A few people perhaps not quite getting the point, when suspension design was improved this led to an increase in the technical challenge of DH races, same with the introduction of disc brakes, go back and look at early DH races which were essentially fast fireroad descents, people should probably learn some DH history before throwing the suspension & disc brake arguments in the mix. The biggest industry claim is that big wheels roll over obstacles better (not my claim, nor do I disagree with it however) so as tkrug states the tracks should increase in technical skill to keep up with technological advancements which would follow the path DH has always taken before of pushing riders & equipment to the limit, this is supposed the be cutting edge of mountain biking after all.

Will a 29er End Up On a World Cup DH Podium This Year? - Pinkbike Poll
My main issue with the wheel size debate is that bigger wheels smooth out the bumps and make for faster racing, great! but I want to see a riders skill tame the tracks not eradicate the technical challenge in tough rocky sections, maybe I'm too old school as some of the venue choices for WC DH recently seem to favour this balls out speed over tech skills too, if we're going bigger wheels then let's go with bigger rocks, deeper ruts and get some damn corners back into DH, oh and bring back Maribor too!

Erik Irmisch Ripping His Tues - Video
He's been with YT for years, most likely before you'd even heard of YT when it was just a small company, I think it's cool that they've stayed loyal to him regardless of if you think he can shred or not (which he can)

@LuisCR: it is possible to win all races and still not win the overall, would that be a perfect season?

@OnionRing: ah sorry pal, are you a bit butt hurt because you've shown that you don't know as much about racing as you think you do? When all else fails and you run out of valid points, bring out the abuse eh?

@mikeyspaff: take out quali points and Danny would have beaten Gwin in the overall, I'd suggest some people do care and that people should learn a bit more about the sport!

@OnionRing: the ruling that most points win the season? Look on the UCI website, it's on there. Perfection is something that can't be improved upon, 97% points total can be improved upon, sorry for not being a sheep!
