Vital RAW: World Cup Redux 26

No slow-motion, no melodramatic soundtrack, just pure downhill abuse. That's Vital MTB RAW, and these are some of the best clips of 2013. We'll be trackside in 2014 to bring you the pings, dings, flings and stings of the UCI World Cup mountain bike downhill.

    Everyone says that they run them stiff, but it sounds like they bottom out on every rock. Maybe I just like it stiffer… Or don't ride quite as fast.

    It probably doesn't hurt that they have top-notch mechanics to fix what they destroy. I know I'd ride 1,000,000x harder if I had the support they had!

    You don't ride quite as fast, and I mean that in most non-snarky way possible.

    Aaaaaand that's why I love Vital, or at least it's one reason, that and the lack of crying pinkbike posters. Bring on RAW 2014!

    i do not understand this. there was no timelapse of clouds and no dubstep or emo music. where are the 240fps slow motion shots? this is not a mountain biking video.

    And none of them put on their goggles. How will I know if they put on their appropriate eye protection if it wasn't shown?!

    On a real note, I love watching these.

    That, ladies and gents, is how you do RAW justice. Imitators need not apply.
