Fair point, but at the elite level of World Cup DH the general atmosphere is a lot more serious on the hill and in the pits. It's not anti-social at the WC's or all fun and games at the EWS, but each certainly has a different feeling to it.

It looks like the guys in blue are ignoring him, but they are actually quite a ways away farther down the stairs and across the platform. There's a reverse angle floating around that gives a bit more perspective but I'm not posting it as it's just gratuitous.

I'm not sure a wheel set exists that would have survived that impact. When was the last time you saw someone almost rip their fork out through the front of the head tube? https://goo.gl/GwWa9p and https://goo.gl/sn6S7C

Modern day suspension really is amazing. People wouldn't have dreamed of taking an everyday fork into a bike park just a few years ago. Now it seems like it's no problem.

Might not be carbon but it definitely doesn't look stock either. Different cable routing, no machining behind the chainring, and there should be an obvious weld where that Deity sticker is.

Santa Cruz are about the best in the biz, but look closely and you get an idea of how much would need to be done if this was on the outside before it was consumer ready. Carbon just don't pop out of the mold looking smooth and sexy. http://www.bikerumor.com/2014/06/25/bike-porn-santa-cruz-nomad-carbon-cutaway/

That's was a raw carbon frame looks like, move along. Paint is unnecessary weight for one, Gwin couldn't give two if his frame looks a little beat up, and three RAW is cool.

What Sideshow said. If you ever get to see a carbon frame fresh out of the mold it's not much of a looker. There's a great deal of filing, filling, and sanding left to be done to achieve the finished look. Even this one's been cleaned up quite a bit.

The '1-2-3' compression adjustment also works in the fully open/descend setting now (if I'm not mistaken previous versions only fine-tuned the settings in trail and lock mode?).
