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.

Not sure what you mean by underrepresented, but this kind of message is definitely not going to attract more women to the sport.

Seriously! Red Bull has done an amazing job this year. Epic coverage.

Unfortunately riding up singletrack is what is showcased in the video. They are not marketing it as simply a shuttle-assist motor. Where I ride it has taken decades of erosion studies, community meetings, and volunteer trail stewardship to get mountain biking to be seen in a semi-positive light. High speed bi-directional trails would be a nightmare from both a usage and design standpoint. It seems like an über lightweight, low-power shuttle assist motor would be a smarter product.

This raw footage is the best... captures the speed so well.

I hope you're right... the article says "Aaron Gwin will be the first rider to drop in tomorrow, coming in last during seeding." What's the word Vital?

Whoa!! Going to be weird seeing Gwin and Hill come down so early. Really hope they aren't injured. Mitch you are a freaking lunatic!!
FWIW Smith won the Crankworkx Air DH this year on another brand new bike ( DeVinci Troy ), so hopefully he won't have any trouble jumping on another new rig. It does seem like a risky move though.
Sounds like the dirt is loose and slippery with wide turns.. big wheels could be just the ticket for more traction. Monster-truckaloto!

I think they're just having a bit of fun... notice the $100 bills with "PINNED" for the serial number. I like the raw carbon underneath the stickers.

Graves made up 12 places solely on the pedal section last year at PMB, so it will be interesting to see what he does on an even lighter setup. They should just split the track and put an un-timed liaison stage in the middle

In summary, what were "French cheat lines" in Whistler are now great photo ops, CG gets a 30 second penalty for not wearing a helmet and no one cares, and big wheels are definitely superior despite Clementz and Graves killing it on 26". Mmmmmk.

Dumb question, but what are the rules for starting? Seems like you can't pedal but you can push-off pretty hard? Lot's of the heats were decided by a good start.

Hehe, I guess you're calling me a cynic then! Sadly, even the top guys in our sport don't make very much dough.

It's a bit different when you're a pro with thousands of followers and are the instigator of some serious public character defamation of another pro. Just sayin'.
Seriously man! Peaty the purveyor of partying and pounder of pilsners has suddenly got his panties twisted over Barel wearing his helmet over his ears? What's next, banning trail-side pee breaks? Shoe-lace inspections? #syndicatebutthurt
Fair points, however I disagree that the EWS lack politics. They were vocal about making an example of a high profile rider before Cworx even started, and Fab was just a convenient fall guy. They're trying to make Clements their new poster boy, but he has been seen and even penalized for course cutting in past rounds. Call me a cynic, but I see the EWS largely as a new marketing platform for $10K trail bikes and ex-DHers to extend their careers.
EWS has already jumped the shark.
