I feel like this could be the perfect chance to start my MTB-focused tabloid... "EXPOSED: BEEF STAGED TO GET MILLENIALS INTERESTED IN TRADESHOW!"

I feel like that Mike & Mike segment would have been perfect for another 'Mike vs. Mike' food shoot-out... Gummy bears vs. tofu skewers?

Video: Home Team Advantage & Pressure at EWS Whistler with the Rocky Mountain Race Face Enduro Team
@JesseMelamed: I think you guys kicked ass this season no matter what, you showed the old fans why you rock and gained some new ones in the process (your rebound from two injuries alone is superb motivation for someone like me who's getting older and becoming more prone to injuries). Stay safe for the last two and keep on having fun! Also, jerseys, yes please.

Get him some of that patented Canadian/Rocky-RF recovery program, eh? Ice bath and maple syrup, was it? Swift recovery!

New CushCore Insert, Less Expensive HT Pedals, Smanie's N.spire Seat - Eurobike 2018
D1 user here, love mine. I originally got mine to use the non-clipless side for a specific long technical climb on one of my home trails where I need to be seated (grip loss on rear wheel) while also having my feet free to balance myself as there's a bunch of tight turns covered with roots. I was simply too stubborn to walk my bike up that part, so these were perfect. To answer the question what was wrong with the two-sided clipless pedals that I used before - I found that when balancing with one foot off the pedals and the balance shifting so I would quickly have to change which foot I'm balancing with (thus returning the balance-providing foot to the pedal in an exuberant fashion) I would often unintentionally clip back in, with the tired leg then too slow to clip back out to re-establish balance, thus causing me to tumble sideways down a steep loam-covered hillside at a comically slow speed. (oh yeah, and I'm fully conscious of the fact that this sort of application is probably not what the designers/engineers had in mind... but hey, it solved my problem)

Media Days Randoms I: Paul Finally Finds a Bike That's Too Big - Eurobike Media Days
It's great to see trickle-down tech coming down to the big-power stoppers as well. Tektro's new Orion 4P is another one that comes to mind. Here's hoping manufacturers start putting these on their entry level aggressive bikes, as for the most part, brakes are usually the lowest tier component, at least with non-online based brands.

Day 1 Results: EWS Petzen-Jamnica 2018
We were at two sketchy sections of both the first and second stages today and he was one of the most composed riders, super clean line choices, smooth riding where so many of the pro riders were having trouble. He was 7th in both those stages, so definitely doing something right coming out of an injury. Here's hoping for a smooth and crash-free day 2!
