So you mean his whole adult life? Pretty much starting around the age of 12 and having the nickname manchild before he was old enough to drive? That long, huh? Or are you just making up a judgment and accusing him of taking steroids and growth hormones ... more »

@tmano2 that's a pretty loaded and dangerous accusation to be throwing around about a professional athlete simply based on your feels and not one shred of factual evidence. There an interview with Jerome Clementz and a few others in VeloVert this past ... more »

Also of note is that Higenamine was not added to the WADA list until 2017. That pic from Coral, Chile is from 2016 and at the time would have been fully acceptable... Just an example of how "easy" it can be to be ingesting the wrong things.

Haha... It's not exactly rocket science to know who gets tested as the podium is a given at an event where dopping controls are in place.

May I give you some reasons why not to do this, not the least of which is that you created an account today just to make this post. Perhaps trying to keep some anonymity? The testing took place at the French EWS and riders tested were the podium and ... more »

@EJThomson did you read the whole review and only remember the two "negative" points? No bike is perfect for every rider in every situation. The Low BB has an advantage in many many situations and is a trade off in others, and if you reread the article the extra length of the cranks seemed to be more of an issue than the BB. Same goes for suspension, and where it falls short in one isolated scenario (in one particular shock setting) it shined in every other situation. Super light weight, spot on geometry and predictable suspension through the majority of terrain in a place like Whistler makes me happy. If you are looking for "exactly perfect" as you put it, I'm not sure that any bike will fit the bill.

Added reply in a thread Should the World Cup Downhill season have more races? 10/13/2014 12:26 PM

I'm with Neethling on this one. We absolutely need more high level events. 8 races out of 52 weekends is hardly enough to make a season. Look at Super cross with 14-16 events for example. Ideally I would like to see a 10 race series plus World Champs. ... more »

Epic section of trail there. Hopefully got an equally epic shot with all those flashes

I've only had to open my bag once in about every 10 flights and it was a smooth operation. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Shit happens and shot breaks, all the equipment are still tools for the job. I just broke my 70-200 two days before three weeks of work which stings a bit to replace on short notice. One of my fisheyes is full of dings from roost but the resulting shots were worth it. I would equate it to buying a top end DH bike and them hitting the World Cup with it. Things will wear out and break but with proper use and maintenance it will still be a winner. I've had good luck on planes as I carry lenses and bodies as carry on.

What @noahColorado said....

5 stars means, pretty much perfect in every way. I wasn't blown away by the suspension in the trail mode, though some of that may have been the rear shock needing a bit of tweaking, and one day/ride isn't enough to dial it in. Standover wasn't the best simply because they want to be able to fit a water bottle, which in the end is a fair trade off. Weight would be another issue as it isn't the lightest thing out there, but this is offset by price and solid construction (the saying "light, strong, cheap... pick two" comes to mind).

I did however feel the geometry and suspension in "gravity mode" are some of the best I have ridden.

Add that all up, weighing the good, the bad, and the things that could be improved and a 4 stars is pretty damn good.

Just about every single top end bike these days is amazing so it takes something really, really, really special to be considered perfect.

Cheers.

haha, @pininator we had all had one or two too many and had been messing about doing tricks on the minibike for the camera for quite some time before that shot, hence the bleeding. However, Joey had no clue he was getting covered in beer on this one and it's just one take, spur of the moment goofing around.
