Video: WynTV from Red Bull Hardline Tasmania 2024
Its funny how all the riders are saying "This is what World Cup tracks should be like!"...if all world cup tracks were like this there is no way riders would be able to complete a 7 race season. Half of the field already gets obliterated during the year by injury and thats on normal tracks. If every course was like Hardline I shudder to think of the injury rate. It wouldnt be a viable sport.

Peter Sagan Undergoes Surgery After Heart Arrhythmia During MTB Race
@Hexsense: My resting heart rate is 36 and some doctors panic when they listen to my HR because they think I'm barely alive. It doesnt have much to do with endurance training either as my brother is the same and he has done very little sports in his life compared to me. There is huge variation between people so saying anything over 200bpm is the deathzone is a bit ridiculous.

Peter Sagan Undergoes Surgery After Heart Arrhythmia During MTB Race
@p1nkbike: Absolutely. Look at the HR data of athletes on Strava after any race eg running or biking. The younger athletes will all max out close to 200bpm and some even at 210. I dont know where that guy is getting the idea that 200bpm is unusual. I know at least 5 people I race with whose HR will go to 200bpm. Mine used to max out at about 198 racing enduro 9-10 years ago. It rarely goes above 188 now.

Everyone who uses the word "problematic" is a complete clown. I've never ever read a post that includes "XXXXX is problematic for XXXXX reason" and then thought, "yes, here is a reasonable and rational person who has an all-encompassing view of the world and can lead us to a better place." It's always some holier-than-thou twat saying something nonsensical.

@PaulinhoCascavel: Its amazing how little people here seem to be allowing for the fact that he literally spent months off the bike. He's been riding what, less than 2 months and hasnt raced downhill properly in 5 years but was still able to set a decent time. Lots of top World Cup riders coming back from injury struggle to qualify.

Throwback Thursday: Opinion - The Argument For Short-Travel Bikes
@betsie: huh? Negative? I find this thread very amusing and was delighted to read old comments. Are you sure it's not you who has a negative outlook on the world?

Wtf is going on? It's like everyone has just picked up a 10 year old conversation as if nothing has happened. "What was I saying again? Oh yeah, these 27.5 inch bikes will never take off..."

Kyle Strait Air-Lifted from the Red Bull Rampage Course After Crash in Practice
@thiscunt: that is such nonsense. People who have made the world what it is didn't obsess about a recreational activity that affects basically nothing in life for 99.999999% of the world. They've been doing exactly the same thing for 20 years. They are progressing nothing aside from their own skills in one extremely limited area of life and they are making a moderate loving at it. By your logic all people who spend their lives in gambling offices must be the real go getters of the world as they take reckless risk after reckless risk.... My attitude to risk taking is probably more liberal than 95% of the population but i am willing to draw a line particularly when the activity is extraordinarily high risk. Lots of people who have achieved great things make bad calls and hang on too long. Also, I would say there is very little or no correlation between people who take high risks in extreme sports and those who are innovators in business or even back in the day exploring the world. They had totally different motivations and I don't think they would look too kindly on what would be seen as a child's sport by people from that time (all sport was considered a frivolous past time back in the old days that could result in a life ending/altering injury due to the fact medical care was so limited). As far as I'm aware most of silicone valley isn't out there freesoloing rock faces....I know lots of engineering graduates and none of them are into extreme sports but many of them are well on their way to the top of their field....funny that. Anyway, I hope Kyle heels from this as it is potentially a life changer.

I don't really get why guys like Cam and Kyle keep coming back? They have done it all and when is the time to say enough is enough? Let's be honest neither of them have come close to winning it in the last few years. I know Zink got 4th last year but he was never going to win it unless everyone else crashed. There is so much more to life and the risk of rampage is absolutely enormous. It really is matter of time before this shit happens when the risk is that high and for what exactly? Do they just keep going until it does happen? They need to be smarter of they want to actually live a healthy life in the future. Particularly when they have kids. My wife looks after her quadraplegic uncle some days and that shit ruined so many lives when it happened. Two of his sister's are now his full time carers, their children got forgotten about for a few years when it happened then they eventually get roped in to help too. His mum had her life destroyed by it and of course he no longer has a good quality of life a spends most of his time paranoid about having a UTI. Everyone in the family is affected by it so these guys really need to have a look at themselves. It's not just them involved.
