Sam Hill: Hypnosis Sam Hill: Earthed Five (every shot of him, but if I had to pick one segment I'd choose the scene where he crushes it and then hits the tree on the grown over trails at Mt. Sainte Anne or Bromont or wherever that is. That scene might ... more »
Reply to Peaty DSQ? 8/8/2011 11:53 PM
I know we're talking about the UCI here, but why not change the rule to a time penalty instead of an automatic disqualification? Peaty clearly was not cheating, he just blew out of the tape. A five second, hell, a ten second penalty would be plenty, ... more »

The weight must be a typo. I read on ridemonkey that you can't win a race on a bike that weighs more than 40 pounds. Also, yeah, that bike is sick.

Luiz Carlos, you're not taking crazy pills; I know where you're coming from. Every single Earthed or Sprung beats the pants off of any race or freeride movie made since 2007, no question.

Following someone that's way faster or better than you and relearning how to ride a bike in the process of trying to survive. The sound of sideknobs tearing hardpacked dirt apart is my favorite noise of all time.

Spomer said: "even though there's a top 80 practice session)" Thus totally destroying my point. If top pros don't have to practice with all the midpack guys, then it doesn't really matter. But it still sucks to be an almost good enough racer in the U.S. ... more »
Reply to Too many people in the world cup 5/23/2010 9:05 AM
Is 300 too many people? Yeah, of course it is. Sure the group gets pared down to 80 after qualifying, but that means that the 80 best riders in the world still have to get stuck behind the 300th best rider in the world during practice. Why are there ... more »

Reply to Looking at new brakes... Suggestions? 3/4/2010 10:13 PM
Just remember Alex, Patrick's best season ever was on an old blown out set of Hayes nines, so sometimes being able to slow down isn't the best way to go fast. On the other hand, that is the worst advice ever. Better advice would be to suggest that no ... more »
Reply to Die Trend, Die. 2/22/2010 11:17 PM
15 qr must die. Maxle light weighs 19 grams more than 15qr. It was a stupid idea in the first place. Another standard was not necessary. 29ers are fine, I guess, if that's what you want. What sucks about 29ers is the same thing that sucks about Apple ... more »

This is stupid. If you think professional downhill racing isn't about: "training, calories, heart-rate, vo2, rest, taper, train, train, train" and all that other "necessary horseshit" than you have been living under a rock. Sure, bike skills are a way ... more »
Reply to Style or tech tricks 1/19/2010 4:44 PM
The correct answer is neither. In the debate of style vs. tech tricks, the real winner will always be going bigger than the other guy. Watch Sean Burns in Dead Bang. Case in point.

And massage chairs. Maybe massage lift chairs. That'd be sweet.

Word up on points. Points should be assigned to all Pro riders, or at least top 50. I showed up to three rounds, got top twenty, and had like 5 points. Keene wins one and had 75. Bummer. Keene rode his ass off, yeah, but WidenJ5 is right on. Also, any ... more »
