Jared's Yeti looks incredible.

Is that the best we can do for a pic of Brendan's proto??? (well, I guess by the time it hits the slopes, that's that...not that far away now....but, curious to see what they have come up with now. Some kind of weird linkage...).

Sven - what a hoarder! :-)

@sspomer, thanks for posting the bag check, I was trying to find that a couple of weeks ago. Also, this opening round is going to be something special, more than in years past I think due to the shake-up last year.

Just wondering what we have to look forward to in the way of Flipper/Sven coverage over the course of the event? Any track walk stuff from today?

RockShox prototypes we snapped pics of 3 weeks ago at Bootleg. We had them up for a few minutes but had to take them down. Looking good!

Yeah I knew it but apparently some people didn't get the memo so that's why I posted the link. Still funny that people are still picking her to win SA. lol
