    WadeS one of my all time heroes and fav riders of any genre! That jump over the Zocchi truck in Disorder3 is still the most impressive video moment Ive ever seen for me and always will be, I have allot of mtb vids lol, the era, bikes, the fact its first time seeing something like that, its like Hillary climbing Everest, everyone these days can go try, but he did it first and no one can duplicate that, Wade, absolute legend as are the bikes Rocky he rode, I will always associate the brand with him, I remember Red Bull Zion 1 the Canadian line lol ahh mtb was so innocent back then, cheers Wade loved this article. Def see more of this type of reporting!

    Wow, the RM series was probably one of the first bikes that got me intrigued about ful suspension and it's mechanics. Awesome feature.
