    Loving how hes sporting the water bottle cage on his bike.
    It´d be awesome to see him win it with a full water bottle on it

    Sounds like a great idea to me. Trail bikes are unbelievably DH worthy these days, better than some not-so-long-ago DH bikes. For someone like Mitch who rips but isn't likely to be fighting for a win (the only place that matters here really), why not put it through the paces and see what it can do

    Is there a better bike for that course? If Gwin doesn't run one he's nuts.

    Now things are just getting crazy. I treat my Enduro like a mini-DH bike, but 60 foot jumps? And boneyards at mach-stupid? Wow.

    I would love to see him podium on that thing!

    Sounds like the dirt is loose and slippery with wide turns.. big wheels could be just the ticket for more traction. Monster-truckaloto!

    Easily the fastest bike I've ever ridden
