5 Hardtails With Dropper Posts - Albstadt World Cup XC
Seems like I've not been paying enough attention to Specialized in recent years. So now there is no more Stumpjumper hardtail, but there is a Pitch hardtail and an Epic hardtail (both which used to be full suspension models). I'm up to date again!

Results: Albstadt World Cup XCC
Too bad Nino couldn't finish his race. Should make for some exciting racing between the two this year. Hopefully no more mechanicals!

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
@mikelevy: Do you also have pictures of that 3d printed extension tube? Seems like they put a lot of effort in that one two. If they're really that cool I may just want two of those for my single crown forks to make it look like I've got a dual crown fork with lots of dials. Should be pretty. Plus it may serve as a nice knock-block. Makes me bang up to date!

Bike Check: Anne Terpstra's Ghost Lector - Albstadt World Cup XC
I mostly associate Ghost with their 4X bikes and I think these are really cool. My daughter rides a 20"-wheeled mtb from them and it quite decent (though I can't get proper tires in that size) and it looks pretty cool too. I'm not going to judge this XC bike based on looks but it seems well thought out.

Video: Behind The Bike - John Hall, YT Mob Mechanic
@atrokz: Alright, I get that. John deserves all respect for his hard work.

@atrokz: Yeah I don't question John is a great mechanic. I'd just say so are others who wrench at top level. Greg had a crash when practicing for the WC finals last season, which made his bike unrideable. His mechanic had a fresh bike waiting for him when he came back down. Now, that was impressive too. Better than all the others? I'm not going to say that. He just did a great job. And I trust so does John.

I wonder if he dares to walk into the pits and say this to the other mechanics. "Hi there, I'm John Hall. I work harder and longer than you do and I do my job better. Cheers."

Video: Pump For Peace Returns to Lesotho
If one kid chooses blasting laps on this track to get his kicks instead of whatever else shiny seems tempting, that is one positive impact, no matter where in the world. Kids at some age need challenges and kicks. Some shady stuff provides that, progressing on a track like this does this too. No need to be pro. A positive self esteem is a goal in itself too.

The length of asphalt they put down there wouldn't contribute much to an infrastructure. And it won't be nearly as much fun. Now kids (or well, people in general probably) who engage in sports activities are proven to be happier and less likely to get their kicks from the bad stuff. I haven't heard of a half kilometer of infrastructure to have this same positive effect.

Five Ten Impact Pro Shoes - Review
@acali: Have to add, another option seems to be to apply so called stealth rubber. Basically a glue with rubber particles. Won't be pretty, but it may get the job done. Worth a try at least.
