Added a comment about slideshow SLIDESHOW: Wildest World Champs Ever? Victory and Carnage in Hafjell, Norway 9/8/2014 8:59 AM

Checkers or Wreckers has been a cliché term thrown around for a long time at world champs.

We have a little bit til next season, how bout some reflections? Can anybody think of other notable performances which didn't get the rainbow stripes? In my book, Mulally and Flatboy Bryce are tied in notoriety forever as winners who didn't win at world champs.

I still enforce Ricky Bobby's quote 2nd is the first loser, but this race is definitely an exception.

Oh yeah, thanks vital for everything

Hearsay is that Remy's BOS forks have custom crowns that are longer so he can whip that much further........

only possible explanation

I could be wrong but I think Rogatkin was pursuing the same run that put him on top in qualifications for his final runs.

It is a good run but you gotta leave something in the tank for finals.

It's really cool to see Chase throwin down moves on the DH bike.

It'd also be a really cool day for mtb if someone won a slopestyle contest with a triple clamp fork. (Not including rampage or chattel).

Dunno if it will happen, but I can always hope

Self Advocacy. As a user group, mtbers have traditionally been left out in the cold. Open space managers saw mtb as a huge risk for user conflict back in the day. Everyone has had their local spot dozed. This didn't last long, as people who mountain ... more »

All killer no filler. I can live with that.

Props to Semenuk for advocating on behalf of all of us his utopian picture of mtb. That's the way our sport should evolve.

Carter is one of many that have coached or helped Aaron in his amazing career. Others include Tomac, Rockwell, Monk Dawg, and maybe Jayci (sorry for spelling Sam Hill's current mech).

Moving on to other people/coaches so quickly may make it seem like these other people are expendable. May. Dunno.

Regardless, i'm sure everyone involved has been stoked to help out. (Trek included maybe)

I've waited a whole season to see Gwin get a world cup victory on a Demo!

Kinda selfish, I know, stoked either way

Im all about intuition, and genuinely feel a couple things.

First, this is even better than x-games. Yup, said it. Sometimes you just gotta do your own thing. This is a perfect example.

Next, is that really Joyride? Having never been, my intuition may be failing me. Any help?

With DH racing prevailing as one of the most inaccessible sports I can think of, it comes as no surprise some show up ill-equipped.

That being said, I feel TWR has no excuses. Unless Bulldog prefers the reg tire in back. I dunno

Riddle me this batman.

I have a legit proposition for 2014 vital shreddys: best qualifier.

While this process may involve more than one year, there is only one person who could take the cake for best qualifier.

Mic Hannah is always on top in quails, yet never seems to translate that momentum into finals.

Hopefully I'll be fully disproven this year with some wins.
