UCI Announces 6-Round World Cup Calendar for 2021
Potentially the last one at Fort Bill for the time being, as I’m lead to believe that further events hadn’t been discussed after next year’s completes the current deal. Would be strange not having the annual Scotland trip on the calendar.

Video: London Wheelie Kids Head to Scotland for Hill Bombs, Pump Tracks & MTB
Cool bike skills, no question about that. However, seeing as this video is likely to inspire others to jump on a bike, they really could have made a statement and all wore a lid.

GoPro Launches New Hero 9 with 5K Video & 2 Screens
I’ll stick with my Hero 7 Black for now I think. In the meantime, maybe GoPro need to work on improving or upgrading their level of customer service for those who buy direct from them. When I ordered my Hero 7, I traded in a Hero 5 to get £100 off. They still charged me full price, only taking off the discount when I contacted them to enquire where the camera was.....they’d sent it to Canada....I’m in the UK! They sent me a free chesty mount by way of apology and sent that to Kazakhstan!! Yes, it’s true.

Brothers Bike Check: Comparing Wyn and Ed Masters' Bikes - EWS Zermatt 2020
Another article that shows that frame sizing remains one of the biggest variables in biking. Only 1” difference in height between these guys and yet one rides a large, the other a medium. I’m 5’3” and went from a small Orange Alpine 6 to a medium Transition Patrol, which surprises people, but then, Transitions size up a little smaller. Just goes to show that you have to go for what feels comfortable and right for you.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Ideal Amount of Dropper Post Travel?
Surely, your ‘ideal’ dropper length is totally dependent on a number of factors....rider height, inside leg measurement, size of the bike you’re riding, seat tube length etc. I’m 5’3”, ride a medium Transition Patrol and run a 120mm dropper post, which when slammed into the seat tube and with the post fully extended, sets the saddle at just right height for pedalling.

Interview: Marine Cabirou on Her First World Cup Win and Her Plans for the New Race Season
You can be pretty sure that Rachel, Tahnee and Myriam will be fully aware of the threat that Marine poses to them, especially given the manner in which she seized the opportunity to step up. Who’s to say that she wouldn’t have taken a win or two last year even if the top three had been racing all year? Much more to come for Miss Cabirou.
