Qualifying Results: Vallnord DH World Cup 2018
@Slabrung: No, I don't think they're trying to emulate real life too closely. I think the main idea is to get people more engaged and paying more attention to practices and results and riders of all ranks, which builds stronger fans. It's worked for me! I've never followed the season and all the riders and team this closely! The values are based on performance, which can change over the season. And right now they are locked in based on last year's standings, which is really out of date for some riders. If the values are regularly shifting then it will force us to pay even more attention as we reshuffle our teams. I.e. more engaged But it would be cool if they let you keep riders without penalty if their value increases, so you take chances on lower ranked riders at the beginning of the season. Or discounts on riders returning from injury to encourage people to take a risk on them.

Qualifying Results: Vallnord DH World Cup 2018
@Lotusoperandi: No, not this year. They've said big changes will come next year, such as rider values changing each round based on standings. But I can't remember if qualifying parts are part of the plan

@Chris97a: The Stache is different, with an elevated chainstay instead of moving the seatstay. Elevated chainstays have been done many times over the decades but they often have trouble with flex under hard pedaling, and that won't do for a BMX race bike or for a belt drive

Bike Check: Austin Warren's Single-Speed Racer - Crankworx Les Gets 2018
Fixed gear is silent and cheap, but good luck keeping your knees from coming apart on fast downhills!
