    Downhill world championships: Pick the winning time and win a prize

He was the man back then and should've smoked Steve and Greg up the top of that track and given himself a bit of a...

    2017 world cup discussion

    Vds So excited to watch this one. I have a feeling Gwin will smash it and put two or three seconds into the rest of the field. He's basically been unbeatable on this track when he's on form and don't see that the pressure of what's at stake will faze him. I like Minnaar but Gwin is definitely...

    Hill for a medal I have a feeling Mr Hill could do big things. Though no one is as fast as Gwin when he's on it, Hill could deliver a bit of a surprise at this race I feel. Though a fair way back in time, he still pulled a top 20 at Fort William. Don't think there's anything off about selecting...

    Demo riders with Öhlins rear shock.

    Felt a bit sluggish with full LSC just bouncing around on it. Noticeable improvement with full HSC through fast chop. Hard to imagine the shock would need servicing as it's seen limited use. Bit weird really, would've expected way better performance from a shock of this calibre. Especially since...

    Demo riders with Öhlins rear shock.

    Hey there, Just wondering what spring rates people with Öhlins shocks are using? At full HSC compression and 3 clicks out from full LSC I found my bike still bottoms out harshly with a 400lb spring and my modest 80kg including gear weight. Cheers.
