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.

Red Bull Foxhunt 2017: Mille Johnset Storms to Victory
Pinkbike should learn to write her name correctly, because it's not going to be the last time they write it. It's Mille, not Millie. Correct in the result list.

The Grand Finale: Full Highlights From EWS Finale, Italy - Video
Check out this instagram clip from Robin Wallner: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZxv8MzhUy2 Switchback is one thing, but when you mix it with that kind of rocks, it gets hairy pretty quickly. (Never mind the audio on the clip, you need to be swedish and a certain age to get that reference (or having swedish television when you where a kid...))

Miranda Miller's Specialized Enduro - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
She came 22nd according to http://www.enduroworldseries.com/results/2017-round-8-finale-ligure-italy/ User mollow got a hefty downvote for saying she was without a chance of winning this race. Now I don't know if he got downvoted for saying so, or the manner in which he said it (quite blunt to say the least), or a combination but he was essentially correct. Her best stage was an 11th, her worst 35th, a total of 11 minutes + behind Ravanel. Make of it what you will.
