Oh for the love of fuck, would it kill someone to post a shot of the women's results as well? They're racing the same track. They paid the same entry fee. Give 'em equal coverage and at least ATTEMPT to give a fuck.

It was the lower half of Upper Supreme (we started at the drop off of Moe's Road) to Fo Sho to Middle Supreme, then through a new section of trail they cut and shaped to shoot us out onto World Cup road, where we jumped in after the sketchy corner. It was the best national race course in a long, long time and hopefully, USAC decides to suck less going forward and enable athletes and media partners to grow US DH.

Hot damn, look at that pro field! Even the women have 10... Must have been a kickass track. It's great to see Vital supporting and covering this event so heavily. Well done!

Added a comment about feature Opinion: When Does Risk Outweigh the Reward? How Red Bull Rampage Changed Our Perspective 10/18/2015 10:23 PM

Excellently said. The riders do choose to get up there and compete for themselves, but as you said: the FEST series is far, far different than the biggest annual single event for RedBull where millions are made. These men are pushing the very limits not just of our sport, but of human ability. And instead of valuing their contributions and paying them what they deserve, our industry is treating them like circus animals. Pay them peanuts and those animals will always perform for the chance to earn popcorn, but these guys aren't products -- they're people. They aren't objects to be exploited, but irreplaceable, invaluable individuals with legacies and history and personal stories.

We've become too desensitized to massive risk, and so we devalue it. When is the reward enough?

Atherton's Carbon Stan's ZTR DH Wheels

I believe the 'RACH' probably stands for 'Rachel'... But I'm also curious as to whether or not she'll move over. If she's running them at Val di Sol, they're in for a good bit of hell!

This feels like a weird game show bastardization of MTB... Or maybe that's just me. #mainstreamFTW

Yes. Thank you... I especially love the part at the end about "...And you ALWAYS leave muddy gear in the corner that I have to clean up and you never.."

Priceless. Nice work, guys (and gals)!
