Outstanding! Hope to see some photos of those tires soon.

Batty and Pendrel 2nd and 3rd in the women's race (non 650b but still cool)

I know it's the rider, not the bike especially for this level of racing but for my level it's the bike.

And here's a typical one straight out of a 29er thread bashing a guy who's pondering is 29ers the way of the future.

Intuitively, I don't think many folks we predicting that 650b would hold a candle to 29'ers in the XC realm. THe only advantage thing I can think of is slightly lighter - but, then WC XC s all about weight weeniedom.

It will be very interesting to see how the 2012 race season plays out. I'm thinking in XC races where fs bikes are used, the Spark 650b will be a winner. If the Scale prototype is a hardtail winner, the Spark ought to be equally or more awesome. Smart of Scott to start winning races before the public version of these bikes come out.

Meanwhile, I will now double down on my prediction that 650b will win some Enduro races in 2012
