Did I read the full results sheet correctly seeing Brian Lopes in the amateur class? He won by three minutes or something, that isn't even a race. He's not young, but he is a damn professional by any account. Speed, salary, history...

Saw this guy at the Colorado Freeride Fest this past weekend, and he seems pretty rad. He was always smiling, and talking to anyone that wanted to talk to a RedBull athlete, even if they didn't know him before that event.

That might be the definition of calm under pressure. He was out of shape for so long, and didn't seem to ever get too worried. Awesome stuff.

So the frame weighs only 3.85 pounds? I'd love to ride that bike just to see what it is like. How much does the whole bike weigh? About the tires, I think he uses custom made, uber expensive tubular tires, at least in the past.

Good angles + good suspension = fast. Fast + Ardent front tire = certain death.

Let me get this right, you are worried about being eco friendly in regards to a chainring, when attached to that you have rubber manufacturing from overseas, metal manufacturing from numerous countries, and probably around six pounds of carbon fiber in the frame? How many DH chainrings do you wear out a year? And which body of water is strait aluminum from? The Strait of Gibraltar? The Strait of Magellan?

Sspomer, did Marcelo say why he runs 172.5 cranks? Super odd size for dh, considering 95% of people are probably on 165mm, then some holdouts on 170mm.

Who is the factory rider on Specialized that is using the Maxxis Minion and not a Butcher/Purgatory/Slaughter? I'm assuming it is a top end Spesh rider with the frame, wheels, drivetrain...

Really? It is so bad to be able to use standard wheel/driver body if you want? And at a lower price? I see, I see, you said 'triggers', which means you mush shift with both hands. That must be so difficult, I know I'd lose my mind as well if I still had to use both thumbs to shift.

Pretty awesome that car companies are getting back into MTB. Will there ever be a challenge to this vid with Gwin and Audi?

Which frames did you crack? I think bikes are pretty good these days compared to just a decade ago.
