Racing & Industry Rumours: Hardline Series, Vergier Trexit (false), OneUp Investment, etc.
Bruni talked about this earlier in the season. He said it takes him months to get used to a new bike so didn't want to jump on the Proto mid season as he had his setup dialled already and dint want to take the risk.

Qualifying Results from Red Bull Hardline 2022
Red Bull only sponsor a set number of athletes per sport/discipline per country, all those GB Men's spots are already taken. I believe it is Kade and Laurie who have it.

Racing Rumours: 5 Possible Changes for the 2023 World Cup Season (Warner Off Commentary Confirmed)
@Bomadics: I have a bit of a to foil hat theory... Discovery don't care about dh mountain biking at this moment in time and this is a long term investment with no expectation or need for profit in short term. They want to be the "Cycling Broadcaster" so they are buying up rights for all types of cycling to build a subscription package for all cycling content whether that be road, DH, xc, etc. I would expect they will want to get people bought into what they are offering to get them to pay so would expect 2 years of free content then slowly it will get merged into the GCN pass once people are used to their coverage.

It went to tender, their offer was no match for Discovery's offer.

7 Things We Learned from the Vallnord DH World Cup
@knarf1: I would assume because they don't want to pay the huge fee to host a world cup. Not like they need the publicity.

Understanding the UCI's New Policies for Transgender Athletes
@Mntneer: size is not the only factor though. What are the impacts transitioning have on the ability to utilise those differences is more relevant. "I’m not shouting down anything" you literally are calling people science deniers for making decisions on the back of scientific research. That is shouting down. Not saying you have to agree with their decision or the research they based it on, that is okay to explain you disagree with that in a rational way but just shouting science denier is not very rational.

Understanding the UCI's New Policies for Transgender Athletes
@Mntneer:. "I provided an evidence based and accepted range of a known and measured physical advantage that men have over women." You didn't though you just said men's hearts and lungs are bigger. This issue comes down to more than just the size of hearts/lungs, it is about at which point (if any point) in a transition that natural advantages are negated - this is a wholistic question about overall performance. "The UCI’s decision is based on limited criteria differentiating men and women, which is testosterone levels." This is just not correct the UCI statement actually says " that while markers of endurance ability lower to "female level" after six to eight months, the decreases in muscle mass, strength, and power take longer." I.e. they have evaluated the wholistic impact and and are adjusting based on the science. There is no such thing as science fact. You are not following the scientific method as you are just ignoring science that does not confirm your bias. I am not telling you that you have to support the UCI decision or you can't have your own opinion. But just stop pretending you are right and using convenient scientific snippets to shout others down.

Understanding the UCI's New Policies for Transgender Athletes
@Mntneer: You know this policy change is the result of scientific studies, right? I am not expressing a personal opinion on the topic but it is pretty hypocritical for you to be calling someone a science denier for supporting a change made to policy as the result of scientific research.
