Zoke Forks Recall

In Mountain Biking on February 13, 2009 at 6:45 am

Marzocchi is recalling a run of their 888 downhill fork series, about 70 RC3 and RC3 WC in all. If you’ve got an 888 fork be sure to check this out — the fork can compress without rebounding on a hard hit. That could throw you off for a nasty face plant (so far the company says only one injury reported out of eight breakages).

Lance, Always a Question-Mark

I’m in the camp that believes Lance benefitted from a lax and easily defeatable drug monitoring era in professional cycling. Since everyone else was doping too I’m not convinced he would not have won all those Tours anyway. But he should come clean.

And now we get word that his deal with the renowned anti-doping expert is off. What to think? Until we get something other than canned press release copy, I have to believe someone screwed the pooch here.

Someday we’ll find out the truth. Hope I live that long.

Good on ya!

As the Aussies like to say.

Mountain bikers down under are rallying forces to help out victims of the widespread flash fires. Horrific video from these tragedies.
