Will a 29er End Up On a World Cup DH Podium This Year? - Pinkbike Poll
If anyone wins a Llangollen Woods Track BDS on a 29er i'll stop running the series and take up cake baking. Make the tracks technical, not motorways..

Will a 29er End Up On a World Cup DH Podium This Year? - Pinkbike Poll
We should say no to 29 in DH and this is why: Riders would need two bikes to compete as the courses differ. Thus eliminating a number of riders from entering DH as their chosen sport due to cost. BMX has a 20inch class and a 24 inch cruiser class now that works. I forecast seeing regional level DH races having a trail bike class (single crown forks) as well as the traditional categories. We all agree 29ers are faster rolling once up to speed but we need to set some limits on the kit used or we won't have a DH sport in years to come. Kids now find it hard to buy an entry level MTB in a 26 inch meaning we are losing the new blood coming into the sport. All because the industry is pushing for short term gains. They produced 29ers first generation a few years back that were like garden gates and sold us them when they were crap! Third generation is on the money now but notice how they wanted us to buy in to the 29ers and when was a poor product on that first generation, taking your $$$. Wake up and smell the coffee people.

Brits Abroad: One Vision Racing the Algarve - Video
Remember pro riders are riding twice as fast as the rest of us. You are behind a rider and you have no idea what they might do, hence you shout 'Rider', as long as you get a thanks in there everyone should be happy. Shouting 'Rider' on it's own is useless, also shout 'on the right' or left to indicate which side you are intending to pass on.
