Simmonds & Beaumont both finished ahead of Ratty and just behind Gee at the recent BDS... which happened to be pretty darn stacked. I think Dale might pull a podium out of the bag here too!

I think most people with high-end bikes (and in theory more disposable income) tend to be enthusiasts and decent home mechanics, and as a result they don't need to take their rides to the shop as often. When I was a mechanic most of my time was spent fixing low-end bikes...more

My personal opinion, waste of talent for Richie Rude. This sucks balls. Good luck to the team, I hope they pin it to win it.
DH won't be quite the same though.

It looks like there is an assist motor under water? The bike seems to lurch forward before he even starts pedaling.... and he is going pretty fast and not pedaling hard at all.

- Nice choice with the bike frame
- She is actually shredding reasonably hard

One would think that he'd have figured out that landing on the rear wheel and slapping down that ridiculous fork doesn't work. But no. And no Park City?

You're being way too hard on yourself Kirill. To even be invited to rampage is an honour and you prove your qualification in the video above. You're a shredda! The biggest disappoint would be putting down the bike

Why would you visit a MTB site BEFORE watching it if you didn't want to know? News travel fast buddy.

You mean like when golf.com announces who won the Masters 30 seconds after the final putt drops? Or like when the newscaster opens with "Nadal wins US Open for 13th grand slam title"? Or other such complete amateur BS moves aka reporting the news? of course there should be a live webcast of...more
