Leogang and MSA will probably see riders keep running 27,5… windham hafjell and meribel I'm not so sure.

if you really think riders would switch back depending on the course i feel sorry for you. brands want to sell 27,5" bikes. riders have to ride what brands give them. end of story.

Well winning tops everything else [HTML_REMOVED] if there's a better chance of winning on a 26", then that's what they'll be riding.

Will we ever see a world cup race in BC? Why or why not?

Wow! Thanks, that's amazing footage. Can't get over how short that track was - the dual slalom track was longer than the WCDH track!

Sun Peaks is a possibility in the near future.

I think its time to end the wheel size debate. 26" are every bit as fast and if you think its holding you back then you are wrong (and I ride 27.5).

Just think how much faster rat would be on big wheels??

That was some damn fine racing. Shame that Steevie wasn't up top, but stoked for josh. Gwinns ride on the rim was pretty badass too. Def worth getting up early.

You could just see that Bryceland was going to take a win pretty soon. He looks a changed man this season. Glad to see Gwin out of it, but that ride down was crazy. Maybe he should run just 1 tire from now on? Stevie very disappointed with that 1 mistake [HTML_REMOVED] it showed after his run.

You don't like Gwin either? It's getting to be like ski racing. One mistake and your done.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

I'm actually liking Gwin more these days now that he's a threat to win, but not dominating everyone. Glad it's not dull like the two seasons where he laid the smack-down on everyone.

Seriously, he finished DFL, but still had the most insane run of the day IMO…

Ride, don't slide.

You can definitely see that Hart and Brosnan are smoother this year on the 650b's.

People don't get that smaller, lighter, riders benefit from lower rolling resistance more than heavier guys.
