not WC, but EWS - greg callaghan ran 29er and stuck w/ it all season b/c he preferred it. he first tried it on his home turf EWS race in ireland which is tight and tech and slippery. he won and continued to use it on all EWS tracks last year http://www.vitalmtb.com/features/Pro-Bike-Check-Greg-Callaghans-Cube-Stereo-140-29,1513 ... more »

You'll never have an excuse for saying your local trails are too tame or too boring now. Take a $30 jump ramp, turn it into a backpack and have at it like Loosedog, Craig Evans, Max Nerurkar and James Chatterton. #makemountainbikingfunagain #justpuntit

thanks for the feedback everyone. @drewnobi, i'll see about overcast...we're new to all of this. @ahab, i've done 4 other interviews (and am doing a 5th one today). they'll probably launch every week or so for now and will try to keep the momentum up throughout the season. it's been really fun doing these interviews.

meaningless off-season DH discussion : ) alright, so the 2016 mont sainte anne track world cup DH track had a wide open, super fast section that skipped a piece of the old, arguably more fun, track. the track in general had too few turns according ... more »

i think wheel building (no boost meant flexier wheel) and lack of tire options were an issue w/ intense and BCD a few years back too. those are no longer problems.
