Added a new video Downhill Bikes Braking - Bootleg Canyon 3/26/2017 5:19 PM
C138x104

DH bikes take a lot of abuse and have to perform under a variety of conditions. One of those conditions is hard braking in rough terrain. Bootleg Canyon has a really good section of trail to observe this in action. There's a steep, fast section that leads into a hard, bermed right turn. Over the years the track has been eroded away and braking bumps have turned into braking drops but the lines constantly evolve and it's an exciting section of track to see the bikes work. Watch as some of the fastest racers at Reaper Madness attack the section. (If you don't know the difference between breaking and braking, you may have thought this was all about carnage, LOL

Clearly Chris Ball is on a 29er pulling away from Sven. btw I had no problem with the camera angle, I guess some people just have a bad habit of looking at a front tire

The only way to really get to know the depth of a World Cup DH team is to subject them to a Vital MTB Quizzed. It's a battle for national bragging rights as Dean Lucas and Jack Moir represent Australia as they go against Charlie Harrison and Nik Nestoroff wearing the stars and stripes.

Spoiler: none of these kids knew Bruce Springsteen's nickname...the future looks dim

Or like being in the start gate and being like "Great, the fastest man in the world is behind me on a 30 second interval..."

Definitely smoother than what's in that video, but there are some sections that are similar. It's best you just come and see for yourself bud...
