Emas DH untuk Jatim dan Jabar

SAMARINDA - Jatim dan Jabar berbagi emas pada cabang balap sepeda nomor MTB downhill. Atlet Jatim Popo Ario Sejati meraih emas di kelompok pria. Sedangkan Risa Suseanty (Jabar) menjadi yang terbaik di kelompok wanita pada lomba di Bukit Air Putih, Samarinda, kemarin (15/7).

Sukses Popo itu menambah pundi-pundi emas tim balap sepeda Jatim. Saat ini, Jatim mengoleksi tiga emas dari lintasan balap sepeda. Target yang dipatok adalah enam emas. Meski demikian, pelatih downhill Jatim Sugeng Trihartono mengatakan puas dengan pencapaian atletnya. "Hasil ini membuktikan bahwa kami tidak lagi dipandang sebelah mata," katanya.

Hari ini, Jatim berpeluang menambah emas dari nomor cross country. Andalan Jatim Usman Ali bakal bersaing dengan lawan-lawan tangguh. Di antaranya, tiga atlet pelatnas asal Jabar. Yakni, Dadi Nurcahyadi, Bandi Sugito, dan Candra Rafsanjani. Pesaing lainnya adalah Sugianto Hoho Setiawan (Jateng).

Hoho bisa menjadi ancaman terbesar bagi Jatim. Maklum, atlet binaan PPLP Malang itu tidak pernah kehilangan emas sepanjang keikutsertaannya PON. "Meski usianya (Hoho. Red) sudah tidak lagi muda, kiprah, pengalaman, dan skill-nya masih menakutkan bagi-lawan-lawannya," terang Sugeng.

Hingga kemarin (15/7), Jogjakarta masih memimpin perolehan medali dari balap sepeda. Di cabang olahraga (cabor) tersebut, Jogjakarta mengoleksi lima emas, dua perak, dan tiga perunggu. Jabar berada di peringkat kedua dengan empat emas dan enam perunggu. Sedangkan Jatim menduduki posisi ketiga dengan tiga emas, delapan perak, dan dua perunggu. (vem/ca)

Psychosis Downhill Race - July 4th 2008

pic from tourismgolden

Psychosis. The 5.9 km stretch of track is quickly gaining a reputation as the steepest and gnarliest ride on the circuit. The trail has been described as mind-blowing, knuckle-whitening, ridiculously-steep, and insane.
This years race took place Saturday afternoon in Golden, Bc. Some of the world's best racers threw themselves off the launch pad and into the longest singletrack DH race in the world. Chris Kovarik took the win and set a new course record with a time of 12:35, 14 seconds faster than Sam Hill's record from last year.

Specialized 2009

By James Huang

The revised linkage arrangement provides improvements in standover clearance, seatpost adjustability and shock bushing wear as on the new SX. Travel on the four-bar rear end has been brought down a bit from 208mm (8.2”) to 191mm (7.5”) but the front end beefs up with a tapered-and-oversized head tube to accommodate the new crop of burly single-crown forks. As on the SX, the BigHit will also include DMD and ICSG mounts as well as fixed geometry.

SX Trail

The new SX receives a tapered-and-oversized 1 1/8”-to-1 1/2” front end and a clever shock mounting arrangement that eliminates wear at the rearmost DU shock bushing. Specialized fits the bottom bracket area with both a DMD front derailleur mount [mounts directly to the swingarm] and standard ISCG tabs to accommodate a wide variety of setups and, as usual, tosses in a healthy dose of cold forgings throughout for durability.


The all new M4 alloy frame and rear wheel travel to 120mm moving it more into the trail bike category than last year’s 100mm-travel model. The rocker link-style arrangement bears strong resemblance to the premium Stumpjumper frame and provides the same benefits: more standover clearance, greatly increased seatpost height adjustment range and a lower centre of gravity for better handling. Riders living in muddier climes should also note that the rear shock is now shielded from debris kicked off of the rear wheel by a double-bent full-length seat tube.
