Great photos and video!

On the group picture above, Parabanne "Bans" Mendoza and his wife Athena, two of the most prominent mtb advocates of the Philippines, are on the lower right (next to Danny). Bans also has a distinguished DH career being a multiple national champion and has competed in the UCI World Championships.

Interesting to see Dan Atherton listed. I wonder how many DH events he'll be racing.

Moving to SRAM (the new descendant line?), perhaps?

Loris Vergier is going to Intense? If this is true I certainly did not see that coming.

I'm surprised not to see an X2 as a rear shock, considering it comes as stock on the "Sanction Team" version these days.
