Doddy is at the XC world cup in Vallnord, Andorra checking out some brand new tech! This is the 2018 Specialized S-works Epic WC of Kiwi racer Sam Gaze. This bike is an XC weapon, re-designed with a slacker head angle, without a lower FSR link and with a better positioning for the Rockshox Brain inertia sensor which attaches directly to the yolk which holds the shock!
