Video: Nicholi Rogatkin & Reed Boggs Ride Snow Bikes... Would You?
They’d probably still claim it “climbs like a mountain goat”

Video: Cam Zink's Biggest Little Fest Highlights - Good Old Fashioned Insanity
I dont understand VanSteenbergen's sponsorship deal with Hyper, whats the point (for hyper) of supporting a rider when you dont even produce any MTB products that actual people can buy? Whats in it for them, the bike isn't even labelled.....

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
@WasatchEnduro: They obviously don't know "what the f they're putting into their bodies", Jared categorically says it himself in the interview above "so I just never thought to update myself with any information if anything was added to the banned list because every test I've ever had was clean." Q; "In a race or a training situation, is it ever something that crosses your mind that you wouldn't drink from someone's bottle" A; "As far as at a race goes, it's kind of something that's been encouraged amongst riders; so everyone helps each other out, which is an awesome part of the sport." that's been supported by a positive test result, how can you question that?

Downhill's Decision Makers on the Future of World Cup Racing
Anyone else get the impression that Red Bull is pissed that the UCI reverted back to a proper start order process?

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
@mfoga: Totally agree, however yes, honestly, I'll usually tell the truth, if I know I'm speeding I'll admit it. I've fought one once, and it was because I didn't believe thats what I was doing, and I won. But we're getting sidetracked. Give them a chance in the trial, let them have their say, I'm hoping they are given some leniency too as I have a lot of respect for both of them. I'm just playing devil's advocate as the guys sitting across the bench from them in court, I think it'll be a hard one to win. We shall see.

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
@Beez177: No, because there are little to no legal ramifications for my actions in this regard. Like I said in my prior post, if you took the example of my responsibilities as a worker however, yes, I make myself fully aware of the laws I'm obligated to follow before performing the work.

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
@FLATLlNE: Thanks for actually being reasonable in your reply, I can also see both sides to this. Unfortunately, I agree with you, it's very challenging for a single person to test everything scientifically before consuming, so the options they're left with are don't consume it, or hope for the best. I dont think anyone can hold Ryno accountable (legally) although I'm sure this will hurt sales, ultimately it'll cost Graves and Rude the most, because I think they're screwed either way. We'll see.

@Beez177: Both of those substances were on the banned list, how is that unclear?

@FLATLlNE: And yes, still their responsibility to know what they're taking, so yes, their fault.

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
@FLATLlNE: either way, his quote; "so I just never thought to update myself with any information if anything was added to the banned list because every test I've ever had was clean. " Says to me that even if it WAS on the listed ingredients, he wouldn't have known it was illegal anyway, because neither of these guys bothered to check. It might not have been Ryno, it could have been any off the shelf supplement, because they never checked the legality, they'll never really know what they ingested.
