They should let Jill race the boys! Saw her at sol vista a few years back: very fast, smoother than most of the am men for sure!

Added a comment about product review 2013 Test Sessions: Ibis Mojo SL-R 5/3/2013 6:45 AM

The last time I rode an Ibis was around 2007 in Moab. It struck me as a great pedaling bike and an able all-arounder, but not equivalent to my nomad for trail-pounding and drops. Hats off to you guys for reporting the flaw in the frame / linkage. At $6k a pop, I think that potential buyers would rather know about this ahead of time. IMO Ibis should have worked this out before offering it to the market, but I'm sure they are working it out now.

Good reporting overall. I'm not in the market for a new bike, but your tests are some of the most comprehensive and informative I've seen. When I'm looking for the next rig, I will check back here first. BTW...when are you going to do a DH bike review?!

Good to hear he's getting more support. Honestly, I've never met anyone who prefers a session over a demo. It almost seems unfair to have Gwin on that bike, actually. Well here's to Specialized getting back into the world of winning. Or gwinning...(sorry).

Yknow, I think you'd have to search pretty far to find an athlete as dominant and mellow as gwin is. Personally, I like having both worlds and world cup--it means we get to watch an extra race each year!

Incredibly smooth. Are there any bumps or is he just that clean of a rider?! Or is the go pro getting better?!

Does anyone know how this result affects the overall standings? Obviously, gwin and atherton are on top, but there should be some shakeup in the rest of the pile.,.uci site is useless and hasnt been updated since July 3rd.

If I were coaching one of the other teams, I'd throw out whatever I thought I was teaching, spend my weekend filming gwin then spend the week after the race teaching my riders to do WHATEVER he did. This kid is a mad genius on a bicycle.

Things I want for World Cup this year:

1. Aaron Gwin winning but not dominating so much. Overall, yes, every race, no.
2. Minnaar up around top with some wins.
3. Young guys continuing to break-in (Ropelato, Brosnan).
4. Hart pulling off another banger run.
5. Gee Atherton getting some mojo back.
6. Surprises from Graves, Hannah, Kintner and / or Peaty.

This qualifier makes it seem like any of those are possible.

The first time I ran into that guy was at Sol Vista. Me, Andrew, Nate and a bunch of other guys on demo bikes were eyeballing this road gap and no one was ready to nut-up yet. We hear this guy yelling down to us from somewhere out in the woods...couldn't see him, just heard this dude harshing us (in the nicest, most encouraging way) to huck that shit. Nate said he (Matt) was the guy who built all the trails there. I didn't know much about downhill, but i couldn't believe someone in charge was actually goading us to send this thing. Then, after seeing the rest of the jumps at SV, it about made sense. The amazing part is that once you get the speed down (sometimes slower than you think)...those gaps just flow. I've been mtbing for almost 25 years, and before riding Sol Vista, I would never have thought you could ride a bike on that kind of terrain.
