First Ride: The 2020 Specialized Turbo Levo SL Weighs Only 38 Pounds
@cole-inman: I am curious what changes you made to those bikes to boost their weight by like 2.5 lbs. Don't they weight ~33 lbs without pedals?

First Ride: 2020 Propain Tyee
Or maybe people a) live in an ultra rocky/rooty area and they like the better roll-over capabilities of 29er, b) race bikes and ride a 29er because they are faster in nearly every type of MTB race, or c) they are not skilled enough to have an opinion either way, so they are riding a 29er because that's what they happened to purchase.

Pinkbike Editors' New Years Resolutions for 2020
@MarcusBrody: Stretching improves flexibility, which is not of debate. The debatable question is if you are limited in your performance due to having too low of a range of motion in any specific joint. In my opinion, if you can tie your own shoes and wipe your own butt, your mtb performance will probably not be improved by increasing your flexibility. Balance is pretty task-specific, especially when we are talking about young healthy populations who are not gaining strength by doing yoga or stretching.

Pinkbike Editors' New Years Resolutions for 2020
If you look into the evidence into the efficacy of stretching to decrease injury risk, you are going to be severely disappointed. You are better off focusing on eccentric strength gains. Also, if you race, improving your lower body flexibility may decrease your cycling economy. My practical recommendation is to stretch if you are limited by flexibility in activities, or stretch if you perceive it to make you feel better, but know that it is likely not the answer for injury prevention or improved cycling performance.

Aren’t there still positive tests from that day we have yet to be informed of?

Interview: Martin Maes - "I'm Not Guilty... I Just Made a Stupid Mistake"
@Boondocker390: You must have never done a Google scholar search for the effect of beta agonists on performance. They are VERY effective at improving endurance, strength, and power. They are basically miracle PEDs.

Video: The Privateer is Back for Season 2
Can we get Adam to test positive for banned substances so we can get a first hand look at what, if anything, the EWS does about it?

The Complete Guide to 2019's Enduro World Series Teams
@WAKIdesigns: How about we have the EWS riders vote to implement specific punishments for positive tests. This way you don't have to assume Barelli speaks for the majority of riders. If the riders aren't interested in punishments for positive tests, it shows that either they don't think it is an unfair advantage or they think most are doing it anyway so whatever. If this is the case, I have no issue with the EWS not taking it seriously, but I would like to see what the riders as a whole feel about the issue.

@WAKIdesigns: I think you are reading between the lines and inaccurately assuming other peoples' feelings or intentions. People just want to know the details about how the organization is going to handle these positive tests. The fact this whole situation has been shrouded in mystery is not helping the EWS's cause. I don't WANT any rider to have to deal with this situation, but I certainly want to be informed about which riders are testing positive and which aren't.
