Couldn't give a crap about 29er DH bikes, but that is some awesome coverage.

Holy fuckaroo, Mark Scott is a maniac.
That is one chunky gap, and I haven't even seen what the run-in and landing look like

It's interesting to see that all 3 Syndicate riders are sticking to last year's main line through the gully section. It's a harder setup and longer in distance, but gives you better exit speed out of the turn, and less risk of tire/rim damage on the rocks.
Maybe, just maybe, they all qualified in the top 3 because they're ridiculously talented and hard-working, and know which lines to take.

I think it makes perfect sense for Loris, he's always been blazing fast, he was just a little on the loose side, which people often forget, because the French are almost all "slow iz smoozze, smoozze iz fast" type of riders. The wagon wheels most likely help him tame down his wild style

Based on literally everything I know about suspension, a shock that doesn't sag (and thus has no negative travel) sounds awful. I'm really, really curious about your thoughts after test riding this shock. Please don't pull punches this time though *cough*...more

I think the one thing that surprised me (but Spomer isn't drama like me..and it would cause drama) was why he didn't follow up the pay question with: "Well, if you think payscales should be public, let's hear it. What are they paying you these days?"

Different era's. Sam came up when the tracks were steep loamy gnar top to bottom, not much pedalling. As fast as Finn is, I doubt he can even come close to the top guys on physical tracks like Fort Bill or Cairns. Even the technical tracks (Val DI Sole, Andorra) are extremely physical now, due to how blown out they get over a race week-end

You forgot to mention that those Target shoes looked sick, you were just ashamed of the fact that they had 4 stripes and not 3.

What makes Hardline the 'toughest downhill mountain bike race in the world' isn't the size of the jumps, but rather the fact that they have to clear jumps this big coming out of technical sections. It's not "just" staying off the brakes and pulling up like Fest (massive respect to all of those guys, I squeal like a little girl when I clear a 10ft double)
