Social Roundup: Pro MTBers Athletes Keeping it Interesting in the Gym
@WAKIdesigns: As far as the machine goes, it definitely might not be...I'm not sure. I'm guessing the idea is to find some way to create a training effect without risking season/career ending injuries by constantly riding DH laps all the time; not to exactly mimic the effect of riding. That said, for all the reasons you mentioned at VDS, it's almost unimaginable that people like Minnaar can stay healthy enough to stay competitive for that long, or anybody who's been on top for more than a couple seasons for that matter. IDK what the statistics would say, but if I had to guess, what makes most people lose their edge (in any sport) isn't major injury or simply age, but the accumulation of small injuries that never fully heal, incrementally effecting bio-mechanics over time.

Social Roundup: Pro MTBers Athletes Keeping it Interesting in the Gym
@WAKIdesigns: Generally agree with this, but I'd be surprised if there isn't some carryover at least for injury prevention, if not performance. I certainly wouldn't spend more than 15 minutes a day doing them though. That torture device Kate is on probably does have some true carryover as it seems to mimic that semi-stretched quad position and eccentric force from a DH run pretty well. Not sure how applying upward force to the band mimics a handlebar though. That said, it's always been weird to me that nobody seems to address how bad the mtn bike arm position is on the shoulder, and what can be done in the gym to mitigate the risk of injury. The ideal attack position, with elbows flared/internally rotated shoulder, is the exact opposite of how the bench and push up are cued due to the risk to the rotator cuff. Then again I don't hear too many pros complaining about shoulder issues that aren't caused by acute injury, so idk. Just like with diet though, it does seem like great athletes are great INSPIGHT of their training, not because of it.

@WAKIdesigns: If I had to guess, Rachel is still rehabbing/pre-habbing that ankle following the tear..keeping the stabilizers strong. Core work would be an added benefit.

Fast plants are always a good choice. Sick trail and nice filming.

2019 Pinkbike Awards: Video of the Year Winners
Just to play the obnoxious contrarian role... I'm pretty sure there was a kicker over a road gap at one point. Regardless, it was one of my all-time favorites.
