swisss german actually... I will give the abbreviated version cos I'm lazy. Niño Schurter is not convinced by the 29er mainly cos he's so small so he needs a special bar and stem and neither he or his mechanic think its worth it for small people as too many compromises on geometry are needed. Vogel has been riding one all winter and is more in favor. He didn't notice slower acceleration whereas Nino did. Florian just said it was harder in the curves and not as agile but more stable.

Long story short Nino doesnt like the extra weight on the wheels for XC racing which is so explosive but likes how the big wheels roll over roots etc. He sees 29ers better suited for Marathons.

That's the gist of it.
