Get pitted, so pitted, with Jordi Cortes and Ronan Dunne as they dial in bike setup and come to grips with the evolving conditions at the Leogang DH World Cup.

This episode of Pitted was made in partnership with Fox.

We loved tagging along for some setup chat with Jordi and Andreas Kolb in Poland and with Ronan at the third round in Leogang and can't wait to ruin our own suspension setups by trying to emulate World Cup athlete setups. Which athletes should we go embedded with at the next round?

 @dudeism: following some midseason testing incidents, i'm sorry to announce that I will be missing the rest of the 2024 and 2025 season. I want to thank my main sponsor @dudeism for believing in me.

 Interesting hearing Jordi say you have to pick which section of track you want the suspension dialed for while the Spesh boys are thinking "why not both?" with their buttons.

 I wanted to have him bust out with one of the new RAD edampers Fox has for Ronan right then.

 I am waiting to hear the buttons don't do anything and they have the suspension settings on a timer or GPS type thing to make the changes.

 Enjoyable video!

Since this is the first article I've opened since the site redesign (which otherwise looks good), I'll say this here: users have been complaining heavily about autoplay videos and it looks like PB is doubling down on them, even on the homepage, so I'm finally demoting this site from Chrome to Brave on my phone. That means fewer monetization features (ads and trackers in addition to autoplay) will get through to me. I normally don't do that for sites I want to support - and I really do like PB and want to see it thrive, as demonstrated by my paid Trailforks subscription, but there is a limit.
