Mr. Stik! Some questions for you: 1) Is funding the largest hindrance to supporting, organizing, and setting up a race series? Is it the venues and their funding? I seem to hear some of the same complaints about the GES and ESC that I used to hear about ... more »

To me, "Greatest of All Time" doesn't just mean wins or medals - it's about more than that. I mention Peaty because he's more than podiums - his guidance to riders like Fairclough, Beaumont, "The Don" Neil Donoghue, and Bryceland was critical in helping ... more »

I approve of this interview and Sam's ability to rip corners with Jedi-like precision.

Kidwoo:
"The whole reason the freecaster commentary was so awesome was because he was excited and screaming about people and a sport he knows really well in a field he's passionate about. It ruled because it WASN'T trained subdued crap. That already exists everywhere and what warner brought was way more real. See recent rampage commentary if you really think redbull knows what they're doing here.

Red Bull likes to pride themselves on unique, one of a kind events, why don't they want a unique, one of a kind commentator any more? Oh well....."

- I thoroughly agree with these statements. Reminds me of this:

foam grips and no bash? come on- it would have weighed 33.3 lbs with lock-ons and a bash guard. then i wouldn't have had to make this stupid comment.

"While no bash guard may seem crazy, it'd be just fine on all but the rockiest DH courses."

Fabien, you listened to your body and the pain you were experiencing which is good, but always check in with the medics and a doctor after a bad crash. They're trained professionals who can find something you've missed. Thank God you did not get paralyzed. I would strongly consider wearing a back plate from now on. With the speed people carry these days it's just too gnarly not to wear one... besides - no one has ever received a crash replacement for their spine. Rest easy, and heal up soon!

I approve of this recovery but the video needs more knee brace. =) C'mon now - let's be careful out there. When I'm not delivering justice to the four corners of the world with the righteousness of my round-house kicks, I stay in shape by riding and racing downhill. To ensure that I retain the ability to kick a person in the soul, protection is paramount. For example, before every run I always put on two knee pads, two elbow pads, a back plate, a helmet and a condom. You can never be too safe out there...

I fully approve of and endorse Chris Kovarik.

Need a new downhill track? Invite Chris Kovarik to your local mountain, place him where you want the start gate, then point and tell him "That way." He should have it finished in 3 to 5 minutes depending on tectonic shift / continental drift.
