5 Key Stats from Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
That's surprising they want a bigger field of riders for the men. I'm kinda with Redbull and mostly ignore things until they get to the last 25-30 anyway unless there's a strange shakeup in the order and a top rider is running towards the bottom of the order. Maybe I'm just not a hardcore enough fan or maybe people actually onsite at the venues have a totally different perspective. But for me, watching rider after rider go through the same sections of track when generally they have no chance of making the top 20 doesn't get me excited. If there's 80 of them that will be even moreso. Just my .02

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@thenotoriousmic: I would still say its "fair" though. Risking life and injury is their choice and if it wasn't worth it to them for the money they are paid, they could stop. Heck I do alot of product testing risking my life and inuring myself all the time! The manufacturers don't even know I'm doing it and I pay them! LOL that sounds unfair! Now something like medical or beauty product testing on animals?? That's product testing that really isn't fair and they don't get a choice. :-(

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
I would say most likely they are all paid "fairly". It's all voluntary, you are paid what you are worth to your employer or sponsor. If someone else thinks you are worth more, they pay you more. Fair. Now are they paid a number you'd expect based upon their ridiculously high-level of skill, effort and time they've put into their craft? Now that's a whole different story.

What's a front derailleur? Is that like a rear stem?

Review: 6 Hard-Hitting Rear Tires Ridden & Rated
One thing to remember is the Aggressor comes in 2.5, many other tires that are preferred as a rear tire do not. Now many people like 2.4" as a rear tire, so be it, but for me since I'm sticking with 2.5, the aggressor is the best choice. I wish the Dissector or DHR2 came in 2.5, but unfortunately they don't. And before you say the Aggressor isn't 2.5, remember rim width. My friend and i have identical (35mm internal) rims and his 2.4 DHR2 measures 2.4, my 2.5 Aggressor measures 2.5. I brought my digital calipers to the trail side one day to confirm and measured both twice. As a side note: I've noticed (for Maxxis anyway) when measuring 2.3-2.4" tires, they seem to hit their actual width when on 30mm rims. When measuring 2.5 and 2.6" tires, they seem to hit that actual width on 35mm tires. Put a 2.5 or 2.6 on a 30mm rim and that is where things seem to be a bit different.

Video: How Henrique Avancini Almost Became a Lawyer
Lots of money in law. But given his rockstar status in Brazil, its truly a one-in-a-million shot that he successfully made it, since he probably is making more $ in MTB. I'd say 99% of pro MTB racers make less than lawyers. But $ isn't everything anyway, but interesting to look at it through that lens.
