You could be onto something Woo, 29er bum runners/ass patches. The market for these should never hit rock bottom once DH 29ers flood the scene. Rubbin's Racin'.

this video was posted literally minutes after it was shot. if you're worried about the editing and not the bikes moving around and riders crushing it, you don't have to watch it.

The rotational mass of 29" just obliterated the rubber into tiny dust particles.

Nice one Peaty! Glad we'll be seeing you at the world cups with Syndicate still. Your podcast would be a must listen, and yes, please do Masters World Champs, just so (selfishly), I could tell my kids, we raced.

Keg Laps is not a bad idea......for the Vital media staff traveling the globe and covering races. Spomer you should budget one of these in the travel expense. I bet Sven would go even deeper into the woods for the shot!

I agree 100%. The Cure just made this video all that much better and it took me back to a great time in my life..the 80's. Great job Alex Rankin and Sam Hill!

But this one, with the Cure backing them up, Sam rallying the small bike on old school DH trails, his kids hanging out. All tied together with some of Rankin's best filming/editing to date, this one is...more
