Nerding Out: Is World Cup Downhill Racing Getting Tighter?
An interesting thing to look at would be to look at who the finishers are. If you have more variance in where riders finish in a season or two, then it would ideally help shed a little more light on whether or not the field is tighter.... I think..

UCI Aiming for 5 Round Snow Downhill World Cup in 2020
@Flowcheckers: I think you're right about it being in pretty good shape. I don't think that many of the pro's will be wanting to compete in this series, at least not those that rely heavily on the DH World Cup to get by. I could be wrong, but I feel like they'd rather invest more time and energy into training and staying healthy, rather than racing in the snow. Let's hope I'm just wrong on this one, though.

Red Bull Announces 2018 Rampage Ticket Packages
Looks like if you ride your bike in, they'll just have somewhere to park your bike, but for $65 they better have Antoine Bizet double flip your bike into a 24K gold plated bike rack....

Magped's Magnetic Pedal - Crankworx Whistler 2018
My biggest concern, besides price, is that it seems as though you'll only be able to remove your foot from the pedal when your foot is at the top of it's rotation. I could be wrong, but wouldn't the foot and pedal go up together until there is a force holding the pedal in place? Otherwise I love the idea and think it's got a lot of potential in endurance stage races and adventure rides.

2007 Yeti ASX Freeride in good-great condition. This bikes got old school geometry, being short and steep. A really fun bike to jump around on, but not great for the steep technical riding I prefer. If you're a BMXer or looking for an affordable freeride bike, then this is a great option. If you're looking into racing DH, then I'd look elsewhere. Frame: 2007 Yeti ASX Freeride Frame Travel: 160 mm or 180 mm (adjustable geometry) Rear Shock: Fox DHX 5.0 (w/ Pro-Pedal) Fork: Manitou Sherman Dual-Crown Camo Stem: Truvativ Hussefelt Handlebar: Raceface Respond Headset: FSA "The Pig" Brake(s): Avid Elixir (Set up with only a rear brake at the moment. Will include the front Elixir if wanted as well as a pair of Hayes Nines that are in mediocre condition) Wheels: Bontrager Earls 26" Tires: Maxxis Minion - DHF (Front) and DHR (Rear) 26x2.4 Cranks: FSA Gap Rear Derailleur: Sram X-9 Am willing to travel a few hours to get rid of it. I'm a bit too big and busy for the bike, so I just haven't ridden it as much as I thought I would.
