    I can understand getting as much $$$ as possible because this is a brutally physical sport--your time in the spot light is limited. All riders who do this sport know that they can't do it forever at such a top level and at any moment may suffer a debilitating injury that could end a career. I am sure he is just saving for retirement.

    In other news, Gwin does look like a bit of a punter at the end of that vid though.

    Houseman gets the Shreddy for "Manager of the Year" Haha.

    Con$idering the $ucce$$ he'$ had with Trek over the la$t couple of $ea$on$, I find it odd that he would ju$t $ign with $pecialized. What give$?

    Monster and Red Bull is a great combo when combined with sour mix and whiskey. Oh wait, wrong forum...

    hmmm well gwin served as a great vehicle for getting trek a better DH reputation. I dont see any other point to gwin on specialized besides money? and owning the fastest man on the hill?
