Pinkbike Predictions: Who Could Win the XC World Cup Season Opener?
Pidcock might have finished on a amstel gold podium but his beer chugging performance has been abmysal, he needs to work on that if he wants to hang around here :)

Bike Check: Nino Schurter's Custom 10-Time World Champion Scott Spark RC
@Muckal: From Paul de Vivie's wikipedia: The Touring Club de France organised a challenge in 1902 in which a female rider, Marthe Hesse, participated riding a Gauloise with a three-speed derailleur. Hesse was one among only four riders crossing the Tourmalet without setting foot to the ground.[10][11] Desgrange, though, wrote: "I applaud this test, but I still feel that variable gears are only for people over 45. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailleur? We are getting soft. Come on fellows. Let's say that the test was a fine demonstration - for our grandparents! As for me, give me a fixed gear!"

HQ Tour: Inside SRAM's Drivetrain Development Facility
They are completely different companies. Sram is really pushing it so they tend to release more stuff that is not really polished, but way more blingbling. Shimano is conservative uncle, they tried to make a revolution once and failed badly (khm khm dual control) so they make sure things are working now. They still get things wrong like wandering bite point on some brakes or recent hanger patent that we most certainly absolutely need. I still prefer shimano for better value and smaller performance gap between their top and lower end, but I totaly get some people prefer the cutting edge you can only get with sram.

@ThatOneGuyInTheComments: I've had 11speed slx on hardail for years, it had taken few rocks and branches, bent the cage pretty badly, straightened it and it still works. 12 speed deore on my newer fully got pulled in the spokes with the first branch it had met :/
