We include a shock guard with the bike to protect it from mud and rocks

I second that. But hey, I drink plenty of alcohol and I know that isn't good for me. I just miss the second part about incredible riding.

Holy fk. I have a hard time supporting drinking the trash juice that Red Bull pushes on kids but damn, they're doing great things in our sport. Incredible riding!!!

That was, by far, one of the best pieces I've watched in a long time. Cut Media at it again, and Matt raising the bar!

Fresh dirt on the take off and landing for every shot? Holy crap that's next-level pro.

We've got that poster of him at Mammoth with the foot out and railing on our wall at the shop I work at!!!

Legend, icon or whatever you want to label him...he's that. And more. When I first discovered mountain biking in the mid-90's, he was one of the first elite racers I knew about and wanted to emulate.

John Tomac is the definition of a legend in cycling.

the OG. say what you will about so many other MTB racers but tomac is the true legend of our sport. i feel fortunate to have been able to see him race XC against tinker, overend, etc. at the original cactus cup (and watch him send 'the ledge' while everyone else...more

This is a prime example of staying humble, working hard, and staying true to the cause. You're hard-pressed to find a lot of other well-rounded, grounded, and honest role models in sport and life in general.

I would give both my pinky toes to see a Vital Raw with Tomac! I bet he would still clean up at Kamikaze!

So good. So in-depth, so close to Sam. The edit, the soundtrack... Everything on point.
Then at the end: Alex Rankin. Of course it is.

Wow. Well now my bet's on another certain Brit for the win but how wild would it be to see a dual Ausie brother and sister title on home soil? I have no idea who to root for, so I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the excitement!

Hope Rachel heals up fast and is strong again for 2018.

What bummer for Greg wth the flat. Him and gwin just seemed on another level and would have been awesome to see clean runs from both. Hats of to gwin though. Guy's a beast

No doubt!

It's crazy how the two main contenders both had a DQ and flat-tire end runs, but somehow managed to finish at the top of the field. It makes you wonder just how far ahead both would have been of the field without all the glitches they had throughout the season!

And not only did he walk away from that, but he also managed a 2nd in qualis - missing out on the win by a fraction of a second. Damn!!

Can't, UCI still has a stupid rule requiring same wheel size front and rear. It's an old carry over from TT bikes, but there has been rumors that it may be up for consideration. I agree that 29 front/27.5 rear would be the ultimate DH race setup. The big front wheel gobbles up...more

It will be interesting for sure. Considering she will have much more time to train on a single track (granted, that's one hell of a track to memorize), I'd guess she'll fare pretty well. IFO would not be at all surprised if she got a top-3 result.
