    Where there's smoke there's fire. There's some chatter over on Vital from people in the French DH community that imply some kind of incident happened, possibly with a junior female rider? If it's real, hope there's a real investigation happening, have seen all too often when stuff gets swept under the rug (see: hockey).

    On the other hand, that chatter may be exactly what he is fighting against. Where there is slander there is not always slime. I just made that up. I'm so proud of myself.

    Very true. Although the fact that he's left 2 teams in 3 months and he's now lawyered up certainly makes it seem like there's something more to this than internet rumors. Time will tell.

    Unfortunately, that might be true I'm trying to be optimistic.

    There is a lot of ways this could go, but it seems like something happened. Could be statutory in nature, it could be he hooked up with the wrong persons daughter, it could be the worst thing being suggested…. Likely not nothing… unfortunately in this world speculation will run rampant until the facts come out. It’s a not a good look for him no matter the outcome.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    My guess is; we’re going to see how hard it is for a privateer to keep going at World Cups these days. Even a crazy fast one.

    It is even hard for the smaller teams to afford competition these days. I'm genuinely concerned about the future of DH racing.

    Also, what's up with all the F bomb dropping by pro DH riders the last couple of seasons? I can't watch DH with my kids these days. Its not a good look for a sport that is struggling for mainstream legitimacy.

    edit...not to be 100% flippant, I generally don't swear in front of my kid, but lots of parents do these days, and I don't get bent out of shape when people swear in front of him. It's life, it's only a big deal if you make it a big deal.

    Agreed, who gives a fuck? God forbid these guys/kids show some emotion, it's not the PGA.

    I think I'd be more offended if some racer crashed hard on camera and unleashed a stream of gosh darnits.

    I'm not offended by the f bombs. My point is that dh might consider eliminating the profanity to increase mainstream acceptance of the sport thereby increasing rider pay etc....

    The problem with role models behaving outside of social Norms (whatever that is) is that kids emulate that behavior.

    .. but, whatever, dh might remain on the fringe forever

    Mainstream like the NFL? Those guys are clean as a whistle.

    Not for the occasional random f-bomb.

    Unless your kids live in sensory deprivation chambers, they're gonna hear colorful language. Everywhere. Rather than getting annoyed at the fact that the world turns, maybe work on teaching around this inevitability.

    Not because of a lack of professionalism. Just because I don’t think it ever will be. It’ll never be big like F1, Moto, anything skiing, any team sports. It just won’t. For better or worse.
    If nobody’s watching American soccer, or women’s basketball or track & field because they can’t relate and don’t care, why would they ever flock to MTB DH or MTB anything.

    Pinkbike fantasy DH is back! Now with some changes, mainly dynamic pricing. Should be interesting.

    I made a league. League name: Sprockets. Password: TGR

    Are we doing prizes this year?

    Watched BK's crash. He either was unscathed or ruptured a spleen... ie, that could be anywhere on the spectrum
