What Martin Maes' UCI Suspension Means for the Overall EWS Standings
I'm utterly amazed about the hypocrisy of PB. Let's re-cap: 1.) A professional athlete violates rules related to his profession he and his environment should be familiar with. 2.) The violation get's spotted. 3.) The one reporting the violation get's the blame Seriously? And then blaming the UCI. After all, in pre-UCI times (EWS 2018 Rule book), the rules were even more crystal clear (that they haven't been applied, see Rude/Graves case, is a whole different story) "At any National Federation sanctioned event on any EWS calendar, Anti-Doping tests may be carried out at any time. All riders entered into the event must comply with local Anti-Doping regulation procedures if asked to do so. Failure to do so will result in disqualification from that event and further penalisation as deemed appropriate by the EWS Board. The Enduro World Series organisers and EWS will respect and assist any National Cycling Federation operating anti-doping controls at Enduro World Series events. Any competitor entering an EWS event must follow any anti-doping procedure that may be asked of them by an Enduro World Series organiser. With the interests of keeping enduro mountain biking clean from the start and to avoid the spirit and reputation of enduro mountain bike racing from being brought into disrepute, any cyclist, regardless of cycling discipline, who has previously been found guilty by any court or regulatory body of any use of or involvement with banned, performance enhancing drugs will not be entitled to compete or take part in any Enduro World Series event. Any cyclist prevented from competing or taking part in any Enduro World Series event by virtue of the foregoing paragraph may appeal to the Board of EWS for exemption from that rule and in exceptional circumstances the Board of EWS may at its absolute discretion grant such an exemption. However, in the interests of transparency within the sport of enduro mountain bike racing, the Board of EWS reserve the right to maintain a zero tolerance approach to drug taking in cycling and will communicate any appeal decision publicly." I just put myself in the shoes of the second place finisher who doesn't apply masking agents and doesn't sip from unknown bottles - if those violations don't get penalized

When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
@TheRaven: Childish - I'd say yes, I still have as much fun riding bikes now as I had back as a kid. Maybe even more. Clueless, stupid comments - That's more your thing, so I leave it to you.

@Jpowell01: I prefer bombing down real mountains, but when hills are your thing, good for you.

@LoganKM1982: I was always under the impression that being professional implied knowing what one is talking about. I have yet to witness that between all the whining that is going on here from certain people.

When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
@gtrguy: Sure, was just joking to highlight that there is no "universal 24mm" spindle standard. You always bought BB/Crank systems, even back in the days of square taper bottom brackets, when some cranks required different spindle lengths than others to meet the same Q-factor. But the kids (@TheRaven) today think they know everything.

@TheRaven: Little kid, I'm in my 28th season of riding mountain bikes this year. I bet you shit your pants back then when I started as much as you shit in your pants today because of a bottom bracket. But I acknowledge you beat me when it comes to being the greater keyboard hero.

@TheRaven: I followed your advice and tried to hammer my XTR crankset in a GXP bottom bracket, because both should be a 24 mm spindle system. Didn't work. Please tell me what I did wrong.

@woofer2609: SRAM did not introduce 30mm PF92 or sell this combination.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
Honestly, I was looking at the comments and cannot believe how much energy is being spent on what is really a none-issue. My first MTB I got 1990 and since then, every new MTB I built up was better in any way then the previous one. "Standards" did come and go, but really, here we are not discussing a new standard. You buy a Race Face crank, you buy a Race Face BB. You buy a Shimano crank, you buy a Shimano BB (unless you have BB30 frame, then you are screwed with original BBs). You buy a SRAM crank, you buy a SRAM BB. How much is a BB of the total cost of a bike anyway? 1%? Just shut up and buy a new one. I let you keyboard heroes discuss about these peanuts, I'm out for a ride...
