Great footage Matt. Made me miss being trackside with the media crew. Always used to just park in that open chute and film the gold.

Didn't Nathan Rennie get 2nd with a flat at a WC/Norba/Euro DH?

Such a bummer. Is the SEQ series still pretty sweet?

However you look at it, it's a total bummer.

Just did two days of riding on a full axs setup and was blown away. Seat post was awesome. But the shifting was amazing. I don't go through derailers like I used to and it certainly made me want to upgrade to this setup. 20 years of riding cable shifting and two days on wireless and I never want to go back.

Brutal. Can you even get enough points if you win all 3 races to qualify for WC entry?

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to these fine gentleman converse. Pretty interesting to hear the US perspective on dh racing atm. What sad times are these when passing ruffians can't even rip dh laps in Colorado!

And as I said in the forum, I'm running Deity high rise DJ bars and a Deity 65mm stem so that with the bars rotated to where I like them I don't loose any reach.

I just pulled it down off the wall to measure it. It turns out reach is a pain in the ass to measure, but its in the 450-60 range. I used to measure my downtubes instead as it gives a better relative measurement between the feet and hands. This one is 27" so 686mm.

Here's a link to a Dirt Mag article I did.

Can you recommend any suitable DJ frames? I am also a giraffe in height and find it hard to find something comfortable.

Someone give me the rundown on Canfield. I've known about the brand for a quite a while. Do they have a bit of a cult following? Over here in Aus it's a rarity to ever see one on the trails.

Danny Hart's kit is getting very tight. What qualifies as a skin suit these days? Also he's very fast

that's sucks so bad. Especially makes it really tough for riders travelling a long ass way eg. Australia, New Zealand. I was in Windham 2014 WC filming Vital Raw. top 80 was only seperated by 12 seconds. Pretty tough not knowing if you'll be doing the wc the following weekend logistically. Supporting amateurs on the cusp of turning pro is such a critical time in a racers career.

This track looks so sick and fun to ride. Pumped for racing.
