Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@Boardlife69: haha good one. And I have no comeback for that one (and I'm usually good with comebacks). Maybe I have a concussion.

@Krzymndyd: Wow dude, thanks for sharing. Every sport has their risks--You can crash in a mountain bike, get hit by a car in a road bike, get shanked at a basketball game (I live in a bad neighborhood). The will to live is strong in smart people. Unfortunately, it's not there for others. Some risks just aren't worth it. Btw, can you downgrade to easier climbs? Kinda like going from DH to Enduro or even XC?

@metaam: Mine was just last month, at a super easy trail too (Will Rogers State park). Front tire washed out, hit the ground head first and then scraped a bit of my face and cracked my helmet. I'm actually wondering if I passed out for a while.

@Racer951: To add to your point, Gwin was doing a track walk a few years ago and someone said something about one of the turns being pretty easy to do. Then Gwin says something like "yeah, but try doing it at high speed."

Yeah dude, I'm interested in your story too. Did you fall, almost fell, or just realized you're doing something outrageously dangerous?

It's gotta be that crash at Fort William that shook her resolve. Just like Myriam Nicole avoiding that last gap at MSA because of a crash (couldn't find video of that one though--anybody have it?). Good luck Manon, and thank you for some exciting races. Hope you still stay in the industry somehow.

Is This Linkage Fork the Future of Suspension? - Crankworx Whistler 2017
The design would be livable if it weren't for those two black members sticking out like a beak. It's always the black ones that get the shaft :( But if this does work, servicing a shock is way easier than servicing a fork.
