Dammit it's hard being a Mick fan, only disappointments in the last 12 months. Can't imagine how he must feel, all the tracks seemed to suit him this season. I'm still not giving up on being a Mick fan :-)

See, the problem with RedBull wanting their logo in the helmet cam vids is that the track is all blurry.
Mix that with Gwins speed and you're back to the old school YouTube days

That vid is actually from before he got injured, when they were testing the 650beast proto in Laguna.

What the hell are you on about? Specialized exposes the trail entrance and you blame the president? I hope that was a joke. By the way, Specialized has a history of using local secret trails in videos (Including one very near by that one.) and even...more

Wowowow 2 different size wheels?
That's is not allowed in the UCI rulebook.
Rule 1.3.006 : "The bicycle is a vehicle with two wheels of equal diameter. The front wheel shall be steerable; the
rear wheel shall be driven through a system comprising pedals and a chain."

thats nonsense ... slightly stiffer in the damping tunes, but not so much to make them "not rideable for casual downhillers". there is no sense in setting it up super stiff, as traction would be completely gone. tried enough pro bikes, they are just set up perfectly...more

Depends on the "casual downhiler" really. Most my friends run their forks waay too soft, they almost bottom out when pedalling.
And I think the "super stiff" myth also comes from Gwin, who ran his fork really really stiff (but I'm pretty sure he softened it now)

Yes, every once in a while, the UCI likes to randomly sanction a rider to remind everyone that they're the bosses.
Like last year, when they randomly fined one of the big road cycling guys for breaking the "no participation to non-UCI commissioned events" rule (a rule which everyone was breaking btw).
The UCI like being dicks, it is no coincidence that they schedule races at the same time as other non-UCI commissioned races.

I think they trimmed them down because they looked massive in the pictures
