Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
The point being missed here is about efficiency. Strong runners can run at a far lower HR than beginners - the same goes for regular riders, you will be far more efficient than someone who does it once in a while. I know a guy I used to work with a bit who I can probably smoke on the bike, but who can run round his local park at 120bpm, faster than I can run at all these days. I can't run below 140-150bpm these days as I'm not a regular enough runner. But then if I miss a few weeks on the bike because of work or whatever, what was a 120bpm ride becomes a 140bpm ride as my condition has dropped. On a bike you can ride at a lower HR in many conditions as it's lower impact, so yes you can make 4 hours on the bike easier in that way, but that would be missing the point. I was regularly running half-marathon distance a few years back, with no water or food (which was stupid, in reflection), the only reason I didn't go further is that lack of food and water, but mainly because I am not light enough on my feet to be a long-distance runner and it did terrible things to my knees.

Fair point. I currently sell prints through my own website, but it would nice to have that here on PB.

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Privateer of the Year Winner
Matt Stuttard? Toni had a stronger season than him. I chatted to him about this at one point and he conceded Toni had a stronger season.

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Privateer of the Year Winner
@Fliberico: Because Mondrakers are much larger bikes than Santa Cruz. Greg Minaar's XXL Santa Cruz is only as long (in terms of reach) as my M Mondraker Foxy. Also, Payet doesn't qualify as a privateer in our criteria.
