Schladming Bound: IXS European Downhill Cup 3, Track Walk and Practice - Photo Epic and Video
@Keiron: I'm sure it's an awesome WC track. It looks great. But compared to many other tracks this just doesn't look like the roughest or most technical. I'm just wondering why this particular track is always used as an example when people want more 'proper' tracks.

Schladming Bound: IXS European Downhill Cup 3, Track Walk and Practice - Photo Epic and Video
Why is this track always held up as some sort of gold standard for DH tracks? Whoever there is a race at a crappy "bike park" track there are always a ton of 'bring back schladming' and 'need more tracks like schladming' comments. This track certainly looks fun and steep but it's doesn't exactly look like the most technical or demanding track either. Am I missing something? Is this the track they used for WC races?

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
I think its two different arguments when it comes to Ft William & Leogang. At Ft William I agree with the riders. That one small section was stupid, dangerous, and made the entire race kind of s joke. It served no good purpose and should have been changed. Leogang on the other hand I have less of an issue with. I would prefer to watch them race a more rugged track but the smooth track wasn't dangerous and did offer some variety over the rougher tracks.

Five Things We Learned in Leogang
@ClaytonMarkin: Excatly, if companies couldn't try to differentiate their products through sponsorship there would be no money put into the sport at all.

@JoseBravo: The second was pretty awful too with the ridiculous mud section.

Tech Randoms – Fort William DH World Cup
@donpinpon29: For sure. It definitely makes a difference. I ride a Yeti 303 RDH which has alot of chain growth and the tension is definitely noticeable if I'm sitting still on the bike and compressing the suspension. But once I'm out on the trail I can't say I notice it. My riding is not consistent enough to really tell the difference.

Tech Randoms – Fort William DH World Cup
@EvoRidge: I think Gee's answer was to just not run the clutch. I remember in the interview he said that he was running a full chain guide so he wasn't worried about the chain falling off.

Tech Randoms – Fort William DH World Cup
@groghunter: Yea these guys feel every little thing. I remember a few years back reading that Gee wasn't running a clutch derailleur because he could feel the extra tension it put on the motion of the rear suspension.

Running the Santa Cruz Syndicate – The Kathy Sessler Interview
Thats likely a decision by Santa Cruz as to where they want to spend their marketing dollars.

Multiple Line Miracle: 2017 US Open – Finals
@stacykohut: like I said in my last post, her comment about international competition was clearly made in reference to the event itself, and wanting the US Open to once again grow into a large international event like it was in the past. It was not her complaining that the she personally didn't have enough competition.
