The Rider Suspended for Using or Possessing 10 Banned Substances Responds to USADA Sanctions
@toast2266: I think you make some good points, but to me it all boils down to fairness. You say that the punishment must fit the crime, but let's not forget he may have unfairly denied clean athletes a better result. That isn't right, especially if they are investing huge amounts of time and money into trying the best they can. No, we're not all vying for first place in the ews/dh world Cup, but results matter a great deal to those involved. To minimise his (alleged) doping also minimises the hurt he's likely caused a lot of people.

Thought Experiment: What Would It Take to Build a Sub-7kg Mountain Bike Using Only Stock Parts?
You forgot to add the $900m to free that ship in the Suez canal - you're not getting any of those parts till that's sorted...?

Must Watch: Kriss Kyle Brings his BMX Wizardry to a Custom MTB Course
@norbert-sendtressangle: It might be because they both ride bikes and make great edits with very impressive riding that we would all like to see, or it could be that they both love My Little Pony? I've not fully investigated the second option yet, but feel free to do so if you have the time - I'd start with whether either rider has ever seen a My Little Pony and see what you turn up from there...

6 Ways to Protect Your Bikes with Better Security Practices
I will add that you need to review what you've spent on the bike as well - I replaced/upgraded the brakes and dropper on my mtb before it got nicked. I was insured, but those upgrades raised the value of the bike above the insured value, and I lost out on the value of those upgrades.

Staff Ride: Brian's '10 Year' RAAW Madonna V2 Project Bike
I get where you're all coming from but I'd still argue that this bike is not top end all round. It was built to a (admittedly high) budget and the choice has been made to spend extra on a few components that are important to him. You could easily add thousands to the build of this, with carbon wheels, top tier drive chain and the like... I get the impression that the "keeping up with the Jones's" comment is a little bit tongue in cheek and perhaps related more to the fact that Raaw doesn't do traditional model years (iirc?) - 2 years down the line nobody will be thinking he's riding an 'obsolete' bike... The frame is hardly cheap but nobody seems bothered by that? Also, as he works in the business, I'm quite sure he gets some stuff cheap or free as a result. He probably also samples a lot of stuff and gets to work out where to spend money to get the best value. No, its not a budget build but I do think that he's met his build criteria and has a build that should last a long time and not need any money spending on it beyond routine servicing. I'm not sure why it's making some people so cross?
