A Broken Collarbone Takes Loic Bruni Out of the Fort William DH World Cup
@scott-townes: yea and can’t use some excuse about the tracks being too smooth and fast these days. Fort William has basically been the same track for the last 20 years.

Updated: Rachel Atherton Returns to Racing at Fort William
@pisgahgnar: Yea when pinkbike made that post about her and the concussions a couple days ago my takeaway was that it seems like she was feeling better now and planning to race.

Yea I think expecting should be kept low here. It’s been a long time for her between having a baby and the Achilles injury before that.

Finn Iles Decides to Miss Fort William & Undergo Testing Following a Concussion
@dstroud70: helmets can only offer so much safety. Reality is helmets are more designed to spread the impact around a larger area so your skull doesn’t crack open. Not prevent concussions. Concussions happen when the head slows down abruptly and the brain smashes into the inside of the skull. Helmets can only do so much to ease that deceleration. The only way to really do that is to increase the distance over which that deceleration happens (think auto airbag or crumble zones on a car).

Finn Iles Decides to Miss Fort William & Undergo Testing Following a Concussion
@aaronjb: I have no idea. That’s a little before my time. Definitely possible though. Even if it was never used in biking the general idea for dropping your lowest result is not new. It’s been used in other sports before.

@dthomp325: Thats an interesting idea. And if they are healthy and race every round they can drop their lowest result.

Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
@BaeckerX1: do the league doctors have the results of hundreds of cognitive tests? Yes!!! that’s exactly what they do. Each player is given a neurological and neurocognitive test and evaluation during the preseason when they are healthy. Those baseline exams are then used to evaluate when/if a player is suffering from a concussion. That’s the only way to know if each individual players is suffering a decline in cognitive performance.

Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
@wingguy: No, this original thread was about firing whoever allowed her to race. There are plenty of people that could have told her not to race had they known what is going on, but no one with the actual authority to stop her, outside maybe the people who run her team. So to the original point who do you want fired? Her team manager? If so, who has the ability to fire the person running the team?
