Crazy! Here is a shot looking down the start ramp. That's at the Garden Route Trail Park, near Knysna South Africa. Got to watch them practice one day this winter. It took me a minute just to stand up on that platform, insane, the g-out had to be massive!

Cool thread. When I was 44 I hit this 48 foot gap at the 2010 US National Championships in Sol Vista. Miss that rad park and it's original trail crew.

I agree, Oakridge is fun, not doesn't live up to the hype. It is pretty one dimensional riding, fast, mostly flowy with a few janky corners but no real challenge other than speed. No rocks, big features or steeps. BC has a much bigger variety of fun, challenging trails.

It would be really cool if you guys could do a bit on the new Iranian team. Its awesome to see the sport grow internationally like that!

How 'bout that Billy Goat Bikes team? Pretty cool. Way to make it happen.

That was such a fun track! Skinny bars, Bernie was pinned and the average speed was fast. Cedric Gracia raced there in 2002? I think that was Squirrel doing the walk around 360 in a Dirt Farm t-shirt. Rob Sears on the Mountain Cycle and Gail Dalagher on a white Dirt Works near the end of the video.

Please at least try and contact a company before posting this sort of thing. The same story has been floated about elsewhere and I'm fairly sure Marzo have said its just their moto range and the mtb side will be unaffected. The last thing they need is for unconfirmed rumours just as the mtb side is...more

Body position, body position, body position! Those that made stayed above their bike and those that failed were below their bike. A challenging corner for sure but if you understand how to corner you will be able to make it consistently.

The new Freeride VXI with the smooth sole are sick too! Light, tacky and comfortable.

Shawn Neer crossing the finish line and moving into the hot seat for about 30 riders (at 24 seconds in)! He hucked the mega finish line jump further than anyone and ended up 20th!

I wish there were 5 Americans in the top 5 but Steve Smith is Canadian, Mick Hanna is an Aussie and Bryceland is from Great Britain. We did get 2 out of 5 though. How about Sylvestri 4/100's off of Minnaar!

Great racing, good to see GM back on top, as well a CG in the top 10, looks like another exciting season! Good coverage for their first WC but they missed a good bit of the track, hopefully they will have a few more cameras at the rest of the races.
