That's complete BS.

Yeah, 3 minutes of shredding, 3 days of trail work. Mad skills but I wish he didn't destroy the trail so much. He should be allowed to do it, but nobody else.

Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
I rode the new XTR for 2 hours at Worlds (they had a fleet of Scott bikes for demo). It's really outstanding. Better feel, better gear spacing, and noticeably smoother than XX1 Eagle (which I have on my main bike; that's great too but it's a notch below XTR and on the finicky side and very susceptible to slight changes in alignment). The new XTR race brakes are a step up as well, they modulate as well as SRAM and have XTR stopping power. We should be glad that Shimano is working to get this right. When they get it right, they will rock. (Of course, by then SRAM will have something else shiny and new to attract attention). Makes no sense to knock Shimano USA for manufacturing issues over which they have no control. The only victim from the delay is Shimano. Their "old" (current) XTR can't sell except at discount, and they are losing market to SRAM. I bought a new race bike recently and XX1 Eagle was the obvious choice thanks to XTR's unavailability.

Some day, I will get in shape, put the job on hold, and do this race. Soon.

USA Cycling Announces 2019 National Mountain Bike Calendar
For XC racing, this is progress. Add in Nationals and the Snowshoe World Cup, and there are ten significant races offering UCI points in the US this year. Much better than the last few years. Strange what is happening with Sea Otter -- an HC race on a Thursday, followed by a big 30-mile loop race on Sunday that offers only C3 points. I don't have any inside knowledge, but my guess is that the marked increase in UCI point opportunities this year for XC racing is part of the build up to the Olympics, in the hopes the US can earn more than just the one spot (Howard Grotts) we had for men in 2016. I predict that DH won't get as much love as you might want from USAC and most other national cycling bodies in other countries until it becomes an Olympic sport (which, obviously, it should be).
