Love it. There's something rad about the simplicity of a hardtail.
My trusty Production Privée has about 300 laps in Queenstown Bike Park and never let me down. Wouldn't swap it for any bike in the world.

Surely if we still have a world cup series, it means they still care even a little? Otherwise they'd have dropped it like 4X. My guess is it's still a nice bit of income for them, although not as significant as road cycling (Shimano is title sponsor ... more »

Love me some nerd facts. I'd just like to point out that the Ratpollo mission was in 2014, not 2015

It's total amassed UCI points, not just points gained at world cups. Gwin doesn't do many races other than world cups, whereas Danny and Troy do a lot of smaller races

In his post-race interview, Aaron mentioned something about issues with his bike during his run, but that he managed to keep riding. Any info on what that might have been (rim, frame,...)?

Not sure why people are downvoting you (although, as a Mick Hannah superfan: f*ck you). "Greatest run of all time" is subjective and depends on what people enjoy. Some like watching underdogs win, some like watching guys win in their own country, some like seeing riders on the ragged edge, or incredibly smooth, or very creative,...
If you enjoy great acts of patriotism, a robot-like ability to perform under pressure, and asperger-level precision, Greg's run is pretty up there in terms of greatest runs ever.

Gwins Windham run 2015 was sick, probably not the best but 3.5 seconds up on a two and a half minute track was pretty cool to watch.

Just gonna throw this out there, Gwin's Val Di Sol run in 2012 was up there.

Nope, it's actually Rønning, she's Norwegian. Slowly but surely making her way towards the top at world cups. Keep an eye out for her
