    Dear Vital: Any chance we could get a back to back RAW video of current day RAW versus RAW of years ago?? I'm talking RAW previous to Carbon DH frame, Carbon wheels and Clutch Derailleurs. I would love to see the same rider back to back, or the same frame (different generations), or the same section of a track (if possible). It would be cool too see and hear how much bikes and riders have improved in the rough stuff in just 5-10 years.
