Gwendalyn Gibson Broke Collarbone in Crash at Mairiporã XC World Cup 2024
That's the face I'd be pulling in an instagram hospital photo. I don't know how every other pro mountain biker is in the mood to smile give the thumbs up when they're flat out on a hospital bed with new bits of metal in them and blood everywhere after a crash. It must be upsetting, best of luck with the recovery.

First Ride: 2024 Cannondale Scalpel - The XC Classic Gets Longer & Slacker
@BermSkid72: this is a bike media wide problem. The Singletrackworld reviewer has no XC credentials and even used flat pedals. What use is that to an XC racer reading reviews of an XC race bike? I know Kaz raced XC. But he put a massive high rise bar on the Yeti. What XC racer is going to ride it like that? It makes the review less useful. My issue isn't with Pinkbike in particular, just where can XC racers read reviews of XC race bikes that actually look at XC race issues? It's been a problem since Sarah stopped doing XC reviews on here (and obviously she had a kid, so that's fair), but they used to use Dave Arthur as well. Bikeradar used to use Joe Norledge who is proper fast. Not now. It's good to see James Huang still racing and reviewing on Escape Collective. That's a great site.

First Ride: 2024 Cannondale Scalpel - The XC Classic Gets Longer & Slacker
Is there anywhere that reviews XC bikes these days with someone that actually races XC regularly? I know Kazimer used to but the last two XC race bike reviews have showed that his reviews aren't relevant to XC racers. Fitting higher bars to the Yeti, riding around in baggy trousers and an enduro helmet and shoes, riding this thing with a stack of spacers a mile high under the stem all undermine the review and mean it's not relevant to the people who will use the bike for what it's meant for. How easy is it to ride when you can barely see from effort? Does it forgive your mistakes when you've spent four hours riding on the rivet? How does it sprint? How easy is it to work on trackside when your full toolkit is at home (I know it's going to be awful, but just how awful?)?

Wiggle CRC Reported to be Bought by Frasers Group for Under £10 Million
@ryane: Those local customers will now be worse off. There are more customers than there are retailers. Who deserves to be better off, the many or the few?

@ryane: he's kinda right though (if you're using communist in the American sense, i.e. "throwing it about without actually having a clue what it means but just assuming it's BAAAAD"). CRC were better at selling bike parts cheaper than stores in America. That's excellent capitalism. To say losing CRC so people selling identical things at a higher cost can do better is uncapitalist. America is peak capitalist. Not being capitalist by letting worse retailers thrive is against American values. So probably communist.

According to Singletrackworld, he's only bought the brand names and website. £10m for a logo and a domain. All the jobs go.
