Totally agree with ya Dan255 !
Gwin's a fast guy, not a kamikaze guy, and the way he's going thru this drop's not the way he would've done with operational brakes !!!

My guess is that maybe this was just after he realised they failed. The section before this doesn't really require much braking so it could have taken the time until he hit this bit to realise they'd failed. Then, obviously he couldn't slow down so hit the netting.

"came in too hot of the drop." Yes, because his brakes failed. You can see his hands go straight to the bars when he reached for them in the other angle. Gwin has crashed before in his race run (Val d'Isere I believe) and doesn't blame it on his bike. Why would...more

Well ... already said elsewhere & on Pinkbike, but the restricted area is because of an accident that occured here in 2010 during the French championships.
A spectator was badly hurted by a rock the size of a handball ball (??) he lost the vision in one eye .....

Hey Sven, here's Eric, Remi's bro from Natural Energy ... I think THE main reason for being so restrictive is because of an accident here in 2010 ==> http://www.ledauphine.com/savoie/2010/07/17/un-spectateur-du-championnat-de-france-de-vtt-blesse-par-une-chute-de-pierre
