Will it be the final nail in the coffin for 26" wheels?
Stevie is no stranger to the top of the podium and PMB is a very pedally track, but Mitch in second and on a 29er Enduro, faster than Gee? That's mad. Really mad.
Seriously if a 29er short travel bike ends up on the podium it will be pretty amazing and if Stevie does win, I think we will see 26" at least temporarily relegated to the long grass (there will be a revival about five years down the line as interest in the old size picks up again in the same way that hard tails became cool again about five years after suspension became mainstream).
