Vittoria Announces Five-Year Sponsorship of UCI MTB World Cups and World Champs
No it doesn't, it will just mean that the events are called the Vitoria UCI world cup, or perhals the UCI world cup presented by Vitoria or similar. They are purely a title sponsor

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@thenotoriousmic: yeah Gwin put a load of money into intense. I don't see many intense, but I think they may be hard to get hold of in the UK, probably see a lot more in USA and Canada, but he also hasn't had great results on Intense yet, if he wins a few races it bet they start selling a lot more.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@jamessmurthwaite: do you think Covid may have had an impact on the results? Races did go ahead but perhaps the shorter season led to less pay overall?

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@L0rdTom: its quite common knowledge that Gwin has demanded a large amount of money for sponsorship deals, and he would be the first to admit that too, he's very open about it. He thinks that riders should be paid that much, the are promoting a brand and driving a huge amount of sales at Gwin's level. How many more YTs do you see since he signed for them? "Gwin went specialized so I did too", it's actually a true thing, people buy what does well at races

Lapierre Introduces EWS-E Team Led By Nico Vouilloz
How is it different from any other form of MTB racing apart from the motor? Some bikes are better than others, obviously the motor will play a big part so needs to perform well. No different to what happens in motorsport

Video: Katy Winton to Ride on Nukeproof Bikes in 2021
@Variable-Visual: Everyone is releasing mullet DH bikes, but no mullet enduro bikes. I thought the new Mega would be released with a mullet option since Elliot Heap is running mullet on all his bikes

Agree, Great frames, great components, apparently the latest horizon wheels are good too and they have clothing.

First Ride: 2022 Trek Session - Nope, Not Going to Say It
@cwatt: probably to increase anti squat. Having the idler on the pivot should give around 100% anti squat, but putting it slightly lower than the pivot will increase the anti squat ( I think...)
