Pro Women's Short Track XC - US MTB Nationals 2017
@dea7hadder: It's the nature of short track. We just had a US cup xc race in VT and these ladies did pretty awesome on a technical course with 30' rock rollers and a 5' drop...

1 Question - What's Going on With 27.5+?
@willaasss: good points... I feel like once you are used to a 29" bike with a high headtube that you can almost get behind while charging DH it's hard to go back to that on top of the bike fit of a 27.5. Atleast it was for me. I race XC and Enduro, both my bikes are 29 as I'm just used to the body language of a 29" bike. I've also tried many 27.5's in between, Intense, ibis, a couple others, and I just couldnt' get used to that on top of the bike feeling vs the 29 in the bike feeling. I also would ride with buddies that would start to walk away on chunky DH lines on their 29's and me on my 27.5. So, yes, I will agree that the "current marketing hype" is around them, but it's cyclical.. long travel 29's were the rage 4 or 5 years ago as well when Yeti came out with the SB95 and spesh came out with the enduro 29...

1 Question - What's Going on With 27.5+?
@willaasss: nope. I'll take that fiver all day long. 29 is not going anywhere. I love my Yeti 5.5 and if they keep making bikes like it, they will sell and people will love them. There will always be 27.5 people and 29, and some diehard 26ers... to each his own

Vittoria's New Mota Tire - Review
@Beez177: I've been testing these tires for a few months along with a prototype martello in 29" flavor and the wet traction of these 2 tires is greatly improved over the morsa etc.. I'm just as confident on the mota as I have been on the minion. As far as XC tires go... I don't think any company can touch vittoria, xc tires are just fantastic. They are pressure sensitive as well, I find with vittoria I can run a couple lbs less psi vs other brands like maxxis and schwalbe

$10,000 Clif East Enduro - Race Details
@Bigernmcracken: enduro should be like a trail ride.. with timed descents, not a multistage DH race with lift access... the ability to still descend fast after you've climbed a few thousand feet.
