if i could not be a puss and keep my weight over the front tire, completely oblivious to what the back tire is doing as i'm going around a corner, i'd be a happy camper. like sam or kovarik.

DH FINALS SLIDESHOW!
Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/12/2015 8:53 PM
unfortunately there were some serious computer problems w/ the crew, so the show won't be up until 10am or noon (cali time) tomorrow. but like straightshot said, it'll be worth the wait!

gwin went serious OTB! i understand why the DSQ, but whoa... Well things were going pretty awesome today until I threw down this hot maneuver in qualifying. Not ideal and I actually got disqualified for not re entering the track where I left it, guess they thought I somehow gained an advantage? Haha Oh well, stoked to be protected and still make it into finals. Feelin fast and ready, hoping for a better result tomorrow. I'd also like to say that although my bike riding failed at this point, I still descended this section on foot with a high level of commitment. @beargrylls would be proud #letstryagain #newdaynewrace #lourdesworldcup A video posted by Aaron Gwin (@aarongwin1) on Apr 11, 2015 at 1:45pm PDT

i think back, knee and elbow pads are mandatory at french races? remember cardboard box "pads" at past races?
Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/11/2015 7:02 AM
full results from quali's http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/news/QUALIFYING-RESULTS-Lourdes-World-Cup-Downhill,854 you'll see "Q" next to gwin and gee. they can race if they want. sam didn't attempt to roll in today, so he's not racing : (
Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/11/2015 5:59 AM
getting a report that gee went down and may have a hand/wrist injury. unconfirmed about injury, but he did crash which is why he failed to finish.
Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/11/2015 5:46 AM
so crazy. wonder what happened to gwin and gee.
Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/10/2015 4:40 PM

Reply to Official Lourdes World Cup Thread 4/10/2015 2:17 PM
my Vital OTB pick : ) raw should be coming soon. You see, kids? @gee_atherton doesn't give a f#&k, which is why I picked him as the #Lourdes World Cup DH winner in my #vitalotb prediction yesterday, before any tires even touched the dirt. -gordo shot by @steelcitymedia. Part of #vitalraw which will be dropping soon enough. #getsome A video posted by Vital MTB (@vitalmtb) on Apr 10, 2015 at 2:09pm PDT
