I guess I'd go to that site if I wanted a re-"hash" of comments made there.

As much as I love Sam Hill, I can't help but feel flatpedalthunder is stealing a little bit of the glory from what is one of the most incredible wins of the year in all of cycling. 95+ seconds over second place?! This isn't some local event! Its the top level of the sport and...more

Yup, missed it. there be words hiding under them pretty pictures!

Personally I'd rather see a bigger spread than the first place winner taking half the purse but maybe this is normal? Good on them for bumping it up though!

Good news. I think each of these changes is a step forward. The occasional wood feature didn't bug me too much but it's good to see them find a fresh zone and not have wood features this time.

The one thing not addressed here but I'll be curious to see is if they do anything to better compensate the riders and their crews this year.

Those soft bottles are great for bike parks too.. Fill it at the bottom, drink it on the lift.. stash the folded down empty in your pocket for the way down..

Agreed, chalk it up as a loss and get some new rubber. If you want to roll the dice and try to patch it, at least put it on the rear (if it's not already). Riding out a rear blowout is one thing but doing the same on the front is a different kind of ... more »

Vail could pull it off easy with the terrain, space for crowds and pits and its close to denver for easy team travel. I do like the idea of the frontside of telluride. That would be wild but theres no room for a finish area if im remembering right... ... more »

Added reply in a thread The 'What's Your Coolest Feeling on a Bike Ever?!' Thread 3/3/2016 9:11 AM

I don't know about coolest ever but I just had a good high speed rip down a fairly wide trail with some buddies. All jockeying to be in the lead; laughing and giving each other a hard time. Sometimes it's about the company as much as the trail.

Added reply in a thread How much of each discipline do you ride? 2/23/2016 4:47 PM

I'll play, since I'm nerdy enough to log my rides into a spreadsheet. Over the past 4 years my breakout is 54% DH bike parks/shuttles and 46% trail rides. Plus I'm lucky enough to live close to work and can commute by bike so there's that too.

It's a good question. I would venture to guess that 1) he enjoys being a part of the process and 2) he's in a position to call the shots down to the specifics of his set-up. Not too many other wc riders have that interest or leverage.

A tangent note: It's a bit of a head scratcher at first to have him go with TRP brakes, for example. But these companies are the ones who can gain the most from a high profile athlete repping their stuff. What is Sram going to gain to have him on their stuff? Their gear is proven.
