    Gwin said he wants to be back for MSA, no indication yet if that will be the case.

    can't say i'm terribly surprised. at this point i'd bet a few beers that his primary focus is world champs, any races prior to that would just be to get back in form for that.

    Weather is looking good so far for quali and race day.

    I didn't go check it up close, but the new Tarzan section is looking good. It replaces the big rocky and loose left off-camber where the track arrives under the gondola just before the jumps and berms leading to the Steve Smith Drop.

    Should be a good one...and much dryer than last year!

    if you haven't already, give cathro a like/follow. The more followers he has, the more videos he's going to put out/be allowed to put out. I love his reviews/analysis.

    Nobody in the discipline that matters, it's on Evie Richards' XC bike.

    Let’s add batteries to a reverb, since they don’t break down enough already...
    maybe go solar charging and remove the oil seals a la early Fox 40 while you’re at it.

    And then 6 months later release an aftermarket $90 cable actuator to replace the E part.

    I don't actually get all the hate for Gee (I do enjoy reading it though... it's pretty funny)

    This is probably one of the best rider commentated WC course previews I've ever watched..



    I really hope it's wet as fuck on race day.. MSA looks rad in the wet.
