The Cam McCaul Film - C3 Project Summer Series
I miss my 26er. Nothing whips through corners, pumps uneven terrain, accelerates, or plays nicer in the air than one of those. Sure 26 in wheels have their drawbacks compared to larger sizes, but you don't need mind blowing slopestyle skills to appreciate these qualities.

The Mountain Bike Tourist - Brevard, North Carolina
I spent 3 consecutive years road trippin' the 17 hours to Pisgah/Brevard, during the month of April, for a week of riding/camping and some nightlife in Asheville. Met a gal who loved mountain biking, showed me around a bit, and saw Tom Morello play in Ashville; two sets of "the nightwatchman" and wrapped it up with a set of Rage. So many fond memories...thank you Pisgah!

Besides the fantastic tracks, the great people I met on the transfers just added to the positive vibe that ESC brings to racing across our region. Another day in paradise!

Feelings of Going For a Strava KOM – Video
@iamamodel: Um, going for a KOM? Yes it is...amateur for sure, but you are racing if you're going for a KOM. As for myself, I'm done with chasing KOM's.

Feelings of Going For a Strava KOM – Video
No, you are not. The absolute best thing about mountain bike racing is that the amateurs and pros get to share essentially the same experience on track. Give or take the fans.

7 XC Bike Checks from Albstadt World Cup
Great to see XC professionals are heeding the advice of rank and file mountain bikers...dropper posts increase cornering speed enough to justify the added grams, even on a more traditional xc track. (but its still about the rider, so a rigid post will likely win this round).

Tech Randoms – EWS Ireland 2017
Yeah, roughly a decade of wheel size marketing and finally somebody applies some math/science to the debate. Simplest controlled experiment one could imagine. *three identical bikes differing only in wheel size (26, 27.5, 29) *6 riders *30 timed runs per rider, 10 on each wheel size. Randomized order. *Compile data, apply statistical analysis, base conclusions on a 95% confidence interval. *Replicate the experiment for all relevant racing disciplines, in a variety of geologically distinct regions and track designs. *Publish in a peer reviewed journal (for credibility). *Read all about it on Pink bike
