5 Key Stats From Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
I find it really odd that enduro supposedly pays more than DH, more people may buy enduro bikes but DH is the much better spectator sport and I'm sure has far more, and more viewed, coverage. For example, were I in the market for an enduro bike, Loic Bruni would have more influence on me buying a specialized than whoever specialized has racing enduro and I believe that that is Cube's logic with hiring Danny Hart, but perhaps trying to sell e-bikes rather than enduro bikes

Jamie Edmondson Parts Ways With the RockShox Trek Race Team
Leaves makes it sounds like it was Edmondson's choice whereas this sounds as if Trek's choice. 'Parts ways' is nice and ambiguous

Interview: World Cup Downhill Riders' Union Rep Emilie Siegenthaler
@Puddings: For most brands in DH, the aim isn't to sell DH bikes specifically, it's to raise the profile and prestige of their brand so that people choose their brand regardless of what travel bike they're after. Think Danny Hart on Cube, Cube aren't hoping to sell many DH bikes buy they are hoping to sell a lot of e bikes. I also can't imagine the demo sales justify the existence of the Specialized DH team but knock stumpjumper, status, and endure sales might. I will never buy a DH bike but DH is the only mtb discipline that I am ever likely to follow closely and nake the effort to watch live and I imagine that I am pretty typical of mtbers

Finals Photo Epic: Val di Sole DH World Cup 2022
While at the time, Godstone was way ahead in the splits, it feels a little disingenuous to report it like that and not mention that Williams subsequently pretty much matched his times, 0.03 behind at split 3 amd then up at split 4, so the comparison with Hill doesn't quite hold, Hill would have won by a massive margin had he not binned it on that corner but Goldstone had less than a 50% chance of winning, was behind at the final split, even if he hadn't binned it. Like with world chanps though, thrre seems to an unwarranted assumption that Goldstone would have won if he hadn't crashed which is disrespectful to Williams. As a side question, had anyone made cutting that corner work for them?

[Updated for Finals] Start List for the Val di Sole DH World Cup 2022
I assumed that they still had qualifying, there just weren't any points for it. Certainly in previous years the top riders didn't go mid way through the pack. This is probably the qualifying order

Final Results from the Les Gets DH World Champs 2022
@evantfulrides: Williams was up at splits 1 and 2 regardless of Goldstone's crash between splits 2 and 3 so even if Goldstone had stayed on his bike there is no real reason to believe that he would have won
