Crushing a beer and hitting jumps on Sunday is sooo UTAH in the best kind of way

Stiks probably has a better sense of the financial stakes at play, but if getting access to some drugs cost even a couple thousand for a rider to hit some bonuses that are worth 10K, 20K, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if some riders did it.

If you really come up short on a gap, you are going to blow through the suspension on pretty much any bike. I normally set my suspension up with a little "oh shit" room at the end but we are talking a few millimeters for larger hits to flat.

What about the SC 5010? I think that bike would be great for the type of riding you are describing

If I am remember the last WC slideshow properly, I thought Dean said his future was up in the air because of Gwin (or insinuated it was Gwin). He needed to see how that played out if he was going to be resigned by Intense. Dean and Angel definitely have ... more »

Establishing the "Line Score" prior to the riding is the best idea I've heard (Don't they do this with diving?)

This does two things:
1) You could have a "Best Dig" award for the highest line score with prize money that goes to the Rider's dig crew, who clearly put in so much work to make Rampage happen. Additionally with the broadcast, you can highlight the dig team and that process more (plus this gives them content for down time during the live feed).

2) This brings the start to much needed detail to the scoring; 25 points for Line, 25 for tricks, fluidity, and speed. To spommer's point, the judges definitely know their stuff and love the sport so some more detail would allow us and them to explain their thoughts more.

"Ride or die" on the top tube, but ROBOTS are curious if Turman's killed anyone yet. Doubtful.

Less than 7 minutes in and I already have chills. Makes you really take a moment and think about how much people ignore and brush aside when it come to our bodies. You never really know when "nothing" is actually something. We're all pulling for ya Jared

This has to be an error. Have to imagine the UCI would get a lot of push back from a lot of the brands here who have invested a lot of money in development of a 29er DH and Enduro bikes... This will especially be the case with Enduro where the EWS sponsors ... more »

They can just funnel the Taiwanese bikes thru Mexico- the Cartel can then get their mules to ride them thru the desert to the local bike stores.
