Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@daweil: I think it all depends on the crash. You can slide out going fast but have a minimal impact if you say slide instead of full plant into the ground. Also, depending on the crash, a slow speed crash can be very severe. In an over the bar for instance, even if you aren't going fast, the circular momentum that happens as the bike/riders body rotates around that stopped front wheel can be huge and the riders can slam hard. I mean think about tripping on a sidewalk. Look at slipping on ice for instance. You can barely be moving but if you slip out and slam your head on the ground its bad.

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@Racer951: I understand the differences but I'm just going by what I hear and read from the racers themselves and even what Manon said in her quote. The riders always refer to the more high speed "bike park" tracks as dumbed down or too easy (remember Atwill riding Leogang on a hardtail in practice). I mean yea there are extremes like the super high speed section in MSA or the massive jumps in Ft William, but for the most part these riders aren't afraid of a dumbed down speed track. She even says in here statement high consequence sections and changing conditions. It doesn't sound like she talking about simply losing control at high speeds.

The faster tracks for the most part are easier tracks for riders at this level.

Is This Linkage Fork the Future of Suspension? - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@NYShred: So you have seen the bike in person or ridden the bike? If the answer is yes then I will apologize for saying you have no clue. If the answer is no, then I stand my my original comments which are that you don't know shit about this bike. It not a personal attack on you, its just pointing out the obvious.

@preach: The shock on the front likely bottoms out just like any other rear shock or fork.

@NYShred: "It looks great in the pits for a "PB Randoms" post to help bring attention to your brand but that's about it." "That's about it" except for the part where the guy who actually rode and tested it said that it performed great and that he wouldn't be surprised if the final versions blow the current crop of forks away. If you want to argue that the bike looks weird and won't catch on that's fine, but you have no clue about anything else.

Red Bull Rampage Full Rider List Announced - News
@onemanarmy: she would never finish top 20 in a World Cup race. The women's times just aren't anywhere near the top men's times. As for rampage it would be just as silly to put a woman in there as they would have no chance to win. Rachel, who is one of the best in the world said last year that she wouldn't even ride the full hardline course because it's just too big.

Bingelli has had some great runs at Rampage. Not sure why you are discounting him the way you are.

@adrennan: I doubt the old owners would have let it go on either.
