What Bikes Are the Pros Running for EWS Chile? - Video
I don't find it weird at all. If you know how many crew members and cameras one need for a world cup downhill stream, and then try to replicate that at 10000 feet elevation in the middle of the Chilean mountains, in a place with probably sketchy cell phone coverage let alone internet broadband and want to cover not one track but three over a whole day, and then tree other the next day, where for instance on of them is 11 frickin' kilometers long (four times the length of a downhill track easily) and you have 500 riders (ok, you could rule out a lot of the weekend riders and u21 but still a lot of riders) to cover on all those stages and edit it all together and produce two live-streams of mayby 8-9 hours total per day. I'm not very surprised nobody takes on that. The cost and the logistics would be gigantic.

Results: Redwoods Downhill - Crankworx Rotorua 2018
New Zealand is pretty far from everywhere else, so I'm pretty sure that has something to do with it. EWS in Chile in a short while doesn't help either.

Zakarias Johansen Joins the Cube Action Team for 2018
He finished 25th overall in the EWS last year, his first year doing the full series. He finished 22th, 33rd, 34th, 9th, 32nd and 21st (two DNF) riding on the overall top team, Ibis. Prior to that he has won the Norwegian Enduro series (without participating in all races) in 2015 and 2016, and the won the german enduro series in 2016. He raced downhill before that. Kid's got skills.

Anita and Caro Gehrig and the Ibis Enduro Race Team Part Ways
The Norwegian mountainbike magazine reported that Zakarias Blom-Johansen is leaving Ibis also (but could not reveal his new team before january 1st), so they are definitely switching things up for next season. The article has since disappeared from the internet, so it might have been published prematurely.

2017 Fall/Winter Gear Guide - 7 Men's Kits Tested
@Extremmist: I live in Norway where there is plenty of winter and for trail riding (up _and_ down) a thick fabric shorts works very well down to 0 and maybe a couple degrees below (with wool socks, kneeguards and a jacket etc). colder than that, or on the road or nostly downhill trails, shorts is not an option I agree.

Inside Öhlins Racing - Swedish Suspension Specialists
@Poulsbojohnny: To say the mountain bike industry suffered because of the specialized horst link patent is a bit of a stretch, as they only held it in the US. Plenty of european bikes made with horst link in that period. But I agree with the sentiment on specialized's exclusive deals etc. , they are ranging from bad to pretty shitty.

Smooth Swedish Trail Style - Video
@ceecee: For scandinavian natural trails this is pretty smooth terrain. For people used to bikeparks and US-style man-made trails this probably looks crappy, but it's what we got and are used to. Then again, for scandinavians watching films from the US, riders riding dual crown forks on downhill bikes on "trails" with meter-wide compacted dirt surface and jumps, looks, well kinda uneventful.

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
@WAKIdesigns: I agree. It is very visible in the cyclocross races here in Norway. Both national top level XC and marathon riders and road riders compete and almost all races are won by XC/marathon riders. Sure, the work is more similar to an XC race too, but the more technical the more it favours of the mtbers. I raced myself, and gained a lot in the corners, tech and steeps, got passed on the flat pedal-hard parts (I ride trail and enduro mostly). Fun fact: Edvald Boasson Hagen competed in a cyclocross race in Oslo a week back, got 14th in the elite category. Top 5 all mountainbikers on top national level, but not international top.
