Matt Jones - Such a nice guy, was lucky to chat with him at Core Bike Show last month. Remember when he and his bro were smaller than me (that's got to be a long time ago). Both raced 4x and were always at Chicksands thanks to Julia, aka Mrs Jones!

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
Corporate Greed, plain and simple, wake up people and smell the $$$$$. One question I would ask, when will someone realise we ask for a bigger axle on the front of the bike than the rear?

It's Going to Be Harder to Qualify for a DH World Cup in 2018
Wake up people and smell the coffee, sorry meant smell the Bull, the Red Bull. Someone, somewhere is pulling the strings here to ensure better exposure and content for Red Bull Media House. Remember they stopped everyone filming at the events a few years back. Now we can all agree the footage we see is pretty good these days so credit where credit is due and thankyou Red Bull. The real problem is the coverage, nobody besides us hits up redbull.com/bike, my next door neighbour or yours will never look there for content. Yet when it was on the likes of Eurosport back in the day the viewing numbers were massive, I know because I used to commentate on the World Cups for them for the last 2 years they did it. Up next after the Moto GP we have the mountain bike world cup from.. That meant millions of people going, i'll watch that for a laugh which also meant big sponsors like Grundig, Diesel and Nissan. The sport needs to go mainstream and whilst I thank Red Bull for doing a great job, it's coverage is weak compared to the mainstream media outlets out there. We need to ditch Red Bull and go mainstream to ensure prize money increases along with riders wages/sponsorship packages etc.. I've said my bit, i might be introuble now for say all of the above, oh well!
