Grizzatom, respectfully, I disagree that a rider's center of mass is typically in front of the bb spindle when they're standing in a DH body position. Butts are typically behind the seat and above the rear tire. If your body position was truly centered between the axles, you'd be incredibly front wheel-biased when descending on a downhill slope, and pulling the front brake would result in an instant endo. In real life, riders put their COM far behind the front axle because they're anticipating weight shift towards the front of the bike whenever braking or bumps occur. When riders encounter braking or bumps, the bike will slow down faster than the rider on top of it. Inertia wants to keep the rider moving forward, thus, weight shift towards the front of the bike. https://d2p6e6u75xmxt8.cloudfront.net/2/2016/06/89148616841_46146846818.jpg

You seem nice.

Here’s a free tip: don’t like e-MTB? Don’t get one and scroll past any stories involving one. You may be less angry.

I can assure you they were NOT paid for this, in fact Cam paid to have it filmed properly out of his own pocket. Trek would slap a fat logo on this if they were paid you dumbass. Maybe their dad didn't ride bikes with them when they were younger because they mostly rode jumps. Just because Pat looks like a beginner (which he is to mtb) doesn't mean shit. Cam is beyond stoked he gets to share his passion and career with his dad (and whole family) so who the fuck are you to call them sellouts? When 90% of us get old we are going to be loving the shit out of our ebikes no question.

I just think that standardizing the lines would then result in a trick contest. Of course all these guys would be able to handle and ride the lines, so it would then most likely come down to who does the best tricks on the given courses, and I don't think anyone wants Rampage to turn into that. I get that its a "contest" but at the same time its probably more of just a showcase for these riders. Some want to win badly, but listening to the riders, most are stoked to be there and put down a great run regardless of the results. I think the "contest" aspect might be a bigger deal to the fans.

Worse when it's happening to a friend. Or anyone for that matter. The camera was put down between the crash sequence and portraits BTW. I scrambled to help until medic arrived (in seconds)
What made it better to stomach, one of the many great race doctors Dr. Nico Thumbb (real name) - Chile’s best hand surgeon was right there and cleaned and stitched Anita up on site. All the doctors getting around the tracks on bikes. Legends.

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame from friends that worked there in hopes budget would come back. I sent out proposals but teams were filled and I was branded. It was really no prob because I have great sponsors like Sram, FOXMTB, Clif Bar, and Camelbak that stepped up and kept me going. I do feel obligated to have a bike sponsor to finish that circle of sharing content and promoting my brands together, so a frame sponsor was needed. This past year Drew from Declinemag had a Canyon laying around so I figure I try something new and kept the shred alive! Season is done and I had fun. No pity for me tho, I've been dreaming for 22years, and will keep dreaming sponsors or not! I love this shit!

Thanks for kind words everyone and thank you Spomer for watching out for Homies!!

i whole-heartedly agree w/ you about plenty of washed up riders who want a paycheck and not deserving it. kirt, however, based on his talent, creativity and the content he's putting out NOW seems incredibly more valuable and relevant than a mid-pack DH or EWS racer (sorry, not trying to hurt feelings). his personality is contagious too as he seems to get along with anyone he's around. that alone would be extremely important to me as a brand. the ROI is that he leaves an extremely positive impression on everyone he meets (cam mccaul, ratboy...too many pro and non-pro to list were inspired by him and still are). IMO what he does stands out among the noise of social media which is so hard to do these days. we all know brands are paying $$$ to "consultants" to help them figure out how to stand out among the noise. voreis does it. he makes fun on a mountain bike seem attainable, whether jibbing curbs or ripping singletrack. he's ridden every kind and style of bike, so i would think his feedback in product development would be valuable. after reading my rant above, he wrote me to let me know he has some possibilities lined up, but nothing certain. i have no idea what he's asking out of a sponsor, it's way late in the contract game, so there are plenty of unknowns in this. clearly i'm a fan, so take my opinion for what it's worth, i guess.

Holy cow. FIX THIS. Richie Schley has frame sponsor AND a Mercedes deathtruck, and all he ever gave us was dead sailor drops and bad tabletops. Voreis delivers the fun and skill and makes people want to ride.
