6 Key Facts From the EWS Health Study
I wear a shirt like this for 7 years - https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1202/5018/products/2300940001_36274_tif_zoom_2.jpg?v=1485772184 It has elbow and shoulder D3O protectors which are soft and harden only on impact. It does not hinder any movement, is light and just makes it a little hotter. It saved me from a lot of injuries. When I broke my collar bone the impact was on my shoulder only but the shoulder did not even get soared because of the protector. Yes, there is nothing to save you from breaking the clavicle but you can protect your shoulders and elbows.

Cube Action Team Reveals 2019 Stereo Team Bike
I am a happy owner of the lowest spec bike and it rides amazing! The feeling while descending is that everything is slowed down so I can be much more precise with line choice and accurate in my body positioning. Another neat touch is that Newmen wheels are specced across all models, so you can have a light and strong bike no matter the budget.

Video: How to Manual with Duncan Shaw
Only after I started doing proper dead lifts I started to figure out how manuals actually happen. It's all about locking the arms while moving the junk backwards :)

Halo Release Entry Level Trail Wheelset & Tubeless Accessories Range
Last time when I used Snake Skin from Schwalbe I got a puncture under the thread which the sealant could not handle: - opened the tyre but only the bead from one side; - patched it from the inside; - inflated it with CO2 cartridge and it was sealed again. No more issue after that.

Interview: An Injury Update with Adrien Dailly
Modern elbow protectors are so light you can barely feel them - it's a complete mystery to me why professional riders do not wear them. Same goes to shoulder protection....

Photo Epic: Practice - EWS Finale Ligure 2018
@ArchSerpo: with shoulder and elbow he would have been perfectly fine. I understand that this makes it somewhat warmer but it really saves the joints - when I fell hard with 25 km/h straight on my shoulder and broke the collar bone I did not have even a bruise on the shoulder.

The Bakery: Understanding Fear in Mountain Biking
Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. Probably the most rewarding experience for me is when I face my fear and manage to overcome the situation. MTB has helped me a LOT about how to handle such situations!

XC Tech: Lenzerheide World Championships 2018
Can somebody explain why the XC bikes are not longer with shorter stems? Is it because the Pros like as much as possible negative rise? For example the Lux L is with 623 mm top tube/ 455 reach with 80 mm stem and the Strive L has 648 top tube/ 468 reach and 50 stem. I know these bikes have different purpose but I cannot imagine that riding downhill with the Lux (or any of the other bikes) is any fun. Huge respect to the XC Pros that plough trough the technical courses with these bikes!
