Pinkbike Primer - Everything You Need to Know Ahead of the Lenzerheide XC World Cup 2023
That canyon bike the other rider was on looked like the shock was mounted like the Super Calibre and the new epic...or is that just how the Lux looks from the behind/side?

Video: Official Course Preview for the Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2023
Put this man on non ebike so he has to breath and can pause the commentary. Also, I don't need to constantly keep seeing the commentator, I'm here for the course.

Field Test: Lapierre XRM 8.9 - Firm French Flier
Recently bought a lower spec version of this bike for XC racing in UK. Admittedly not the most extreme terrain down here in Southern England, but for XC/XCO/XCM racing its perfect. The slacker head angle, longer reach and lower front end is night and day better than the Specialized Camber Evo & Norco hardtail I've been using for the last decade(??!!!) Frame is really tidy and no headset cable routing (wooot). My build weights 24.3lb with dropper, pedals, bottle cage and 11 speed XTR (taken from other bikes). Whilst the suspension is pretty unsophisticated feeling (SidLux offer nothing other than rebound adjustments), it takes the edge out of lumpy ground excellently, gives better traction than a hardtail and feels pretty active to me...much more so than I expected having read the review. I wouldn't take it to a bike park though...but that's not what its for. It's stiff and the lockout is great when you're standing up on the pedals mashing up a fire road climb or steep bank (lots of those in UK races). So, TL:DR - its a great XC bike, but not such a great 'down country' trail bike.

Race Report: Crank It Cycling Series Round 2 Twisted Oaks
I had no idea there was a race series down this way! With end of Mud, Sweat and Gears I wasn't aware of any other Eastern Region races aside from Beastway and the Potash series in Havering/Essex.

One day I woke up and realised I’d rather be a big fish in a little pond…

@crewmember: that’s what I wanted to hear about. Five minutes of “I want to make a positive impact” and about 20 seconds of what that might mean. Seems a wasted opportunity if he’s doing lots of worthy stuff.

Northampton Bike Park Opens with Free Access to Trails
I wish they'd turn over a golf course down here in Essex and make a bike park like this one.
