More Than 50% of Pro Riders Feel They Wouldn't be Adequately Financially Supported After Injury - State of the Sport Survey
@brianpark: I can only sleep for 4 hours at a time. I am sure my sleep issues are due to poor sinuses. When my sinuses are clear I sleep much better. I think a lot people's sleep issues are due to sinuses because if you are not breathing well, you can't sleep well.

Spotted (Again): Santa Cruz's New XC Race Bike - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
Interesting they have a lockout lever for the front and rear like the Scott Spark and a dropper. Cockpit is going to look crowded.

I had an Specialized Epic and had to put 2.35 tires on it to make it more downcountry. Lol.

5 Key Stats from Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
MTB racers don't race a lot, but it is not about how much they race, it is about how many people watch the races. Supercross has about 1.77 million viewers while UCI races has viewers in the thousands. Ratings for mtb racing is very low which means races get much less money from sponsors.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@burnermtb: High tech companies used to pretty much only hire graduates from Ivy Leagues. Then they found out that many of them couldn't do the job well. So, now the high tech companies base much more on work experience and skills rather than the school you graduated from.

@maxxx: Yes, I think the military has a ton of waste. I think the US gets too involved in other countries affairs. Most people hate Trump, but he didn't start any new wars which only a very few presidents can claim. Also, Trump cut military spending by 38 billion. There isn't a government agency I have seen that is run efficient as many private companies. If the government agencies were private companies they would all go bankrupt.

@sino428: Do a search. Most of the studies have similar numbers. 15.8% response rate is quite good for a study/poll like that because most have much smaller sample sizes like 1000 or so. Show me some reputable independent data that shows anything different, if you think the data is not correct.

@buckwheat23: This is why a lot of mtb yeewwtubers are making more than pro racers. Ratings, ratings, ratings.

@kingbike2: The stories I have heard have not been great. Several weeks in hospital waiting for heart surgery and the patient was not able to leave the hospital. Another, I have heard was months waiting for knee surgery. A lot depends on the current situation, but on average most of the data I have seen, is longer wait times for socialized healthcare. According to Wikipedia: Patients in Canada waited an average of 19.8 weeks to receive treatment, regardless of whether they were able to see a specialist or not. In the U.S. the average wait time for a first-time appointment is 24 days (≈3 times faster than in Canada); wait times for Emergency Room (ER) services averaged 24 minutes (more than 4x faster than in Canada); wait times for specialists averaged between 3–6.4 weeks (over 6x faster than in Canada). In the U.S., patients on Medicaid, the low-income government programs, can wait up to a maximum of 12 weeks to see specialists (12 weeks less than the average wait time in Canada). Because Medicaid payments are low, some have claimed that some doctors do not want to see Medicaid patients in Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_the_healthcare_systems_in_Canada_and_the_United_States#:~:text=Patients%20in%20Canada%20waited%20an,see%20a%20specialist%20or%20not.&text=In%20the%20U.S.%2C%20patients%20on,average%20wait%20time%20in%20Canada).
