The Actual Weights of 15 World Cup DH Race Bikes
@SickEdit: Not totally true. Aside from better alignment properties, Neko's carbon rear end of the Frameworks DH is about 800g lighter than the aluminum version while retaining similar ride & stiffness characteristics. That is not insignificant.

Race Analysis from the Loudenvielle DH World Cup 2023
Vali Höll is the only person in Elites (men or women) to win 400 points in a weekend (win qualis, the semi, and final). And she did it twice so far. What a boss.

Elite Qualifying Results from the Fort William DH World Champs 2023
Speed trap accuracy is potentially off? Seems highly improbable that 4 men are tied for first, down to the thousandths of kph.

Spotted: New Tire from Maxxis
@AndrewHornor: You are seeing a prototype being testing in 2023, which means possible late 2024 launch, most likely spring 2025. That would be 4-year life cycle and very plausible to see as a new Shorty.

Park has trademarked their blue color and Unior (as blue) can't enter many markets because of it, so they changed.

Tech Randoms: Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2022
Because after the last race, racers travel home with their bikes and the mechanics go back to their own homes. The two are often not together. The races are when they are both in the same place at the same time and that's when the mechanics get to fix everything that the racers have done to their bikes since they were last together.

Review: 12 Months With the EXT Era Fork
Ok, so you the currency converter done at the time of typing, but they buy from Europe at a different time and different rate. Since Alba is a distribution center (and not a company subsidiary) you need to factor in shipping to North America, import duties and warehouse costs. That their price is higher than a simple currency converter shouldn't be surprising.

Final Overall Standings for the 2021 DH World Cup Season
@FuzzyL: The only way to win the overall is to have the most points by the end of the season. That's it. Sometimes it's a sh*t show up until the very end, sometimes someone runs away with it. Your assessment that Vali didn't "bring it together anywhere besides Snowshoe" is BS because that includes a 2nd place & a 3rd place. Myriam had crashes. Vali had crashes. That's racing. But Vali had a better overall season and that's why she is the women's World Cup Overall winner. If anything, this season shows that Vali has the mental fortitude to comeback and overcome, which, in my opinion, is more impressive than starting out strong but not being able to finish it.
