    Agreed Northwest. Amazing film as are all the Earthed series. Can't wait for Rankin's Freecaster edit.

    Nico looks insanely fast in this clip.

    This segment still goes through my head every time I see Greg Minnaar or Mick Hannah. They have so much experience at this point. I can say that I've actually seen this video easily over 50 times. With out a doubt the best mountain bike of all time (especially for that time). Martin Whiteley of Trek Global Racing was and still is a master of finding talent. I wonder what Troy Brosnan was doing when this race was going on?
