Pinkbike's DH Fantasy League: Get Your Team On The Line - Fort William is in 10 DAYS!
Looking at rider pricing and flat out saying THAT needs a rethink: $750k for a top shelf rider--a full $200k increase!?!!! WTF?!?!! That makes it insanely difficult to get more than one of our 6 riders on the box. Picking 2 top shelf riders left me with $10k remaining. Add in dynamic pricing and its going to make picking a team an exercise in mediocrity.

Santa Cruz Stigmata CC 54cm Di2 Chris King build

$3000 USD
Santa Cruz 2018 Stigmata CC 54cm w/ Di2 Ultegra/GRX drive train Chris King and Thomson build kit with Shimano Di2 2x drive train * King BB, headset, and hubs laced to Mavic open pro disc tubeless rims * Thomson x4 100 mm stem plus or minus 10 degree rise, Thomson 44cm wide carbon road drop bars, and Thomson masterpiece 27.2 seatpost * Di2 Shimano Ultegra 2x 11 drive train with brand new Di2 GRX rear derailleur (with clutch mechanism; it’s been test ridden so rear derailleur isn’t pristine but it’s only had about 10-15 minutes of ride time) * Ultegra Disc Brakes * Maxxis 700 x 38c Rambler EXO tubeless tires (brand new, but it’s been test ridden so not pristine) * SDG Bel Air saddle * $4k plus $125 for shipping (that gets this bike professionally packed, shipped with insurance). Lightly used but definitely ridden. This stigmata saw a bit of gravel and a few CX races, and it’s got a few battle scars to prove it, but they’re merely cosmetic. This is a true jack of All Trades drop bar bike. It’s got snappy enough geometry to be responsive on the road and cx tracks, but not too twitchy to rally on gravel or singletrack. It’ll take up to a 40c tire, so it’s not one of the new breed of drop bar mountain bike called a gravel bike, but it’s definitely gravel capable. Basically, it’s got that just right feeling on any surface without being too much anything other than fun. Do I like it? Hell yea! But I’m no longer able to ride bikes, so this needs a new home. PayPal or Venmo only.

The End of Intense Factory Racing Officially Announced
MS Team has a storied history, having been MS-evil and MS-intense prior to MS-Mondraker. I’ve no idea about the dollars and sense behind Mondraker stepping back, but Covid recoil is real. And as a whole, I can’t see Intense with more money than Mondraker. They are both somewhat niche brands. The MS part of the equation is solid. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see MS Norco or MS Devinci next year. Or MS GT, for that matter.

UCI & Warner Bros. Discovery Release 2023 World Cup and EWS Calendar
@tacopop: one logistical hold up on a World Cup being hosted at Whistler is travel time required to get team trucks to British Columbia. Those rigs hold commercial license and the drivers can only drive X number of hours per day. Legally, they cannot get there in time. A second consideration is national Federations wanting their piece of the pie. Typically only a single World Cup per country is on the schedule because the national racing Federations scream bloody murder about a country having more than one WC race. Having a world cup in MSA and then in Whistler would cause just as much of a behind the scenes ruckus as the MSA/Bromont races a decade or more ago. I can't help but notice, though, that France has two EWS and DH events that overlap, both TBC. There's also the fact that Whistler has had multiple opportunities to host a WC in the past two decades and has failed to deliver every single time. The two races held at Grouse Mountain 20 years ago, for example, only happened because Whistler was originally on the schedule but bailed out at the last minute. As much as the UCI would love to be at Whistler, they don't exactly trust Whistler. Additionally to be logistically viable, that would have to be a race on the west coast of the US, too, and I am uncertain of a venue with the appropriate infrastructure this side of Tahoe. Maybe Sun Valley? Maybe Whitefish, Montana. And then to be financially viable, there would have to be a three-year contract, otherwise no promoter will touch it. Why 3 years? Typically the first year will operate as a loss. The second year will usually see the promoter break even. But the promoter likely won't show a profit until the third year. Personally, I think we have a better chance of Striking it rich in Las Vegas than seeing Whistler host a World Cup anytime soon.

Red Bull Rampage Announces 2021 Athlete List & Confirms New Venue
Hmmm. They skipped ‘05,’06’ ‘07, ‘09, ‘11, &’20. So this is really the 14th edition, not a 20th anniversary? Or am I mistaken?
