Graves to ride a Yeti SB66 in PMB!
Looks interesting, there are a lot of departures from the ‘norm’ of 26 inch wheeled DH rigs this weekend. I haven’t bothered watching UCI DH this year but defo glued to the coverage this time!
Here’s the link to the coverage to save hunting around for it:Posted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
Didn’t the riders do something similar a a few years back? I think Sam hill was riding a SX trail and possibly the Santa Cruz riders used a Nomad or some other long travel bike not a full on DH bike.
Can remember who won though and if was a DH bike or not? Will be interesting to which type of bike is better for this track.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Graves wont be worrying the big guns too much I reckon,
On a track with a lot of pedalling and some big jumps the former 4x man, who was 2nd in the Enduro World Series and was competing in XCO & DH at the Oz nationals (raced XCO finals to finish 7th then later that evening qualified 1st or 2nd the finished 2nd just behind Mick Hannah in the DH)
Dark horse but a good shout for a decent result.Posted 4 years agoandyrmMember
Makes loads of sense – it’s a fast, pedally course and Graves has shown phenomenal ability in the EWS this year, especially when it comes to getting power down. At the last round, he almost caught Jerome Clementz on a stage – practically on his wheel at the finish line, so must have been going ridiculously fast given Clementz’s massive gap on everyone else in the EWS.
I reckon Graves could cause quite an upset – will be tuning in to see what he does!
