Video: Anneke Beerten's Course Preview for the 2024 Paris Olympics XCO Test Event
@opignonlibre: Agreed - then the whole promotion of what mtb looks like through Olympics is bad - general viewer will think that MTB is some artifical gravel road happening in dump sites/quarry with some wooden bridges and boulders. Almost any other WC XCO track is better IMO than Olympics :) Regarding mopeds - i'm sure they are valuable tool, but what athletes/stuff do on camera and goes public is PR these days. And mopeding XCO course is not good PR - on PB site at least :)

Gravel road with wooden connecting bridges, zero roots and few boulders thrown between to be more "mtb"? Not worthy of Olympic name in title... Also mopeding course preview to promote non-moped event?

Katy Winton Reveals Uncertain Future as a Full-Time Racer
@schwaaa31: You are right, media coverage of EDR is non-existent comparing to DH, it is also impossible to create Enduro coverage on level of DH because it would include waaay too large investments into media coverage (google how much it costs to cover i.e. any of roadies Grand tour coverages for compare costs of cover multi-stage Enduro race - think helicopters, staff, a lot of cameras, inaccesible location for filming crews trucks etc...). Marketing return is OK for DH WC, for Enduro its probably non-existent. It doesn't matter that there are zilion Enduro bikes sold compared to DH bikes - what it matter is Brand media exposure. Consumers see i.e. Commencal bikes win in DH, then they google Commencal and buy Meta TR :)

First Look: 2024 Commencal Meta SX V5
Bike looks good! Going from price/performance brand to boutique price range - not so good. Maybe less WC teams and more affordable prices? We have enough boutique brands, need more P/P brands :)

Review: Troy Lee Designs' New Flowline Helmet
@bishopsmike: Safety has a lot to do with feeling of safety. Don t call other people dumb if they feel safer with TLD helmet than with some generic half-price helmet.
