Just gonna throw this out there, Gwin's Val Di Sol run in 2012 was up there.

Gwins Windham run 2015 was sick, probably not the best but 3.5 seconds up on a two and a half minute track was pretty cool to watch.

That manual after the stevie smith drop (@1:06) to keep out of that hole is fucking mental. Shows just the insane level of talent, where lots were just holding on, he was still destroying...

That was awesome to not have another Lourds take place, those last few guys were unbelievableā€¦ And then Gwin? This was up there with the chainless win. Amazing!

I think the only thing that can be taken from timed training is what kind of times will be required to be near the top later in the weekend...and it's a loose estimate at that.

Phil Atwill better win this thing by like an hour since it's so easy.

Who is Phill Atwill? Can't say I've ever heard of him. Is he consistently a top 10 guy?

it sucks when weather decides the race. i find it hard to believe given the huge cost to the teams and sponsors of putting on this event it's better to run the main or allow it to finish in insane weather. run it earlier if weather is looking crazy or push it back a few hours. it's not like...more

Don't misunderstand why Loic doesn't like the 29'er. Yes faster is faster, but he is coming from the standpoint of "why go faster"? If it is an advantage now, but then everyone adopts the wheel size, it just means that everyone would then just be going even faster - which is hard to fathom. To see the speed in...more

@Oz_Taylor not true! The Padloc can go on any bar. The part from Park Tools is only $15 and my shop bought it and had it in shop 2 days after I requested it. It slides right into the existing Park Tool bar cutting jig. Takes 5 minutes to cut the bar down max. Even the first...more

From what Hill has said, and what I know of his riding, I think he probably likes EWS tracks more than what has been happening with WC in recent years. He's a wizard when it comes to finding lines in natural terrain and what some would consider true ... more Ā»

The pattern is available, but the GRP40 rubber isn't out yet. Your only choice at the moment is 65/55 in 27.5, which is a bit hard even for a mud tire on the WC.

I pretty much always prefer a full-face... my backpack has a helmet carrier, so I just strap it on there for long climbs as I am not worried about crashing on my head while climbing. DH casings + Full Face is the only way to "enduro"
