Man that enduro mtb article has so many holes in it looks like swiss cheese! Pros ride bikes they are comfortable on. They don't do that much testing and they don't take the time to change riding styles to fit the longer bikes. Greg Minnaar is a great example of that. The guy has been riding for +20 years and only now is slowly realising that a longer bike is better for him! As for the narrower bars adding agility you can also do that by going with shorter stems eg 10-30mm. I think the pros ride narrower more due to avoid hitting trees during the race than anything else. I believe Jerome Clemence stated that in a bikecheck a few years back.
