So, it makes sense that Louis Vuitton wants to be in on the trend, and for a mere $1,590, this chalk bag could be yours.

Two tenths of a second. That’s all that separated Kate Weatherly and Marine Cabirou this past Sunday in the Women’s World Cup race in Leogang. Their results are indicative of a loose and dusty course that was racing fast, which kept things neck and neck between many of the top female racers. Despite Cabirou’s best effort to salvage her run after crashing on the last corner, Weatherly ultimately snagged 3rd by mere pedal strokes. At the award ceremony she stood on a UCI downhill World
