Codfish! Look at that youngster! Guessing this pic is from 2001, before Codding broke his elbow in that nasty crash at Telluride World Cup that same year. Always fast as shit, he's now an orthopedic surgeon.

As someone who is sometimes lucky enough to get to go and shoot racing, there are few things I look forward to more than seeing Blenki appear in the viewfinder. If anybody can make shit look good, it's Blenki!

I don’t man, but ballr never rides rollers coasters, he really hates them- they make him sick, almost as sick as shitty corners.

They could build an uphill sandpit in the track. Everyone would have to race the same uphill sandpit. Strictly speaking, it would be fair. If it was short enough it probably wouldn't even change the outcome of the race. But do we want uphill sandpits in our races?...more

I appreciate the beeped out profanity when I watch these vids with my young kids. Yes, they’ll eventually swear like the rest of us, but all in due time.

Shoes definitely play a role for me. Longer pins feel better on shoes with deeper lugs (Impact). When I use a Freerider Pro (etc) on longer pins, it gets too squirmy for me. I prefer a shorter pin for those.

True. I never did anything worthwhile with my racing anyways.

Most of this track looks amazing to me. It's just the top few turns that bummed me out watching. Once those are over with, things look super fun.

C'mon. You know me well enough to know I'm not advocating for trails and race tracks to be "roller coasters", and you know I prefer rough, technical tracks over "bike park" stuff. I totally agree with you about using your "bars, brakes, pedals, and skills", but that's not what I'm talking about in this instance. I'm simply not a fan of trail segments with a staccato feel to them. Like I typed above, a corner like that here and there is great, and I'm all for requiring the rider to find the best line through any section. Maybe you said it best - "erratic (at times)".

The upper turns of that track are what make enduro racing so god awfully unappealing to me. I despise the notion of having to slam on the brakes for a corner on a flat track, only to spring back up to speed, for no good reason. I know the endureros out there will say, "that's mountain biking!", but it shouldn't be. Tracks like that just aren't any fun to me and I don't build trail that lacks consistent (dare I say it?) flow like that. A corner like that here and there? Sure, but not so many in a row. Saps the fun right out of it for me. Flame on...

When I started reading the feed this morning and read that Graves was out with a broken shifter and Hill had won stage 2 by 25 seconds, I laughed it off as an April Fools joke. Obviously it wasn’t.
