He just replied to me. He had to BUY THAT CANYON SENDER!!!
AND....he has been riding Fox all season and it's got Rock Shox suspension. He had exactly 2 days to hop on a bike he'd never ridden and go full tilt to a 12th place qualification. I repeat @sspomer that is a 12th place qualifier on a bike...more

It is the same track indeed, it's a lot gnarlier than this video makes it seem. It's not the most technical, but still really steep and traction will be a big issue at higher speeds. Also, with how soft the dirt is over there, I predict the track will turn to shit by day 2

Keep in mind he was managing the Bergamont team in previous years. Although he does enjoy the odd party, he works a lot more than people give him credit for.

Agreed about Ratboy. It's unreal what he can do, even on a Santa Cruz.

Yep Veefour, you nailed it, I only just re-read the question properly now, and at the time I read it as "my greatest run" For the record, I would answer the question as, either Sam Hill - Champery 2007, Sam Hill Val Di sole 2008, or Richie Rude, stage 3 La Thuile EWS 2016.

I wonder what the greatest injustice in mountain bike history was?

Thredbo dirt for the win!
I remember boosting a 19 year old Gravesy back in through a window of the Schuss Bar at Thredbo when he got kicked out for being too wasted at a national round after party. Legend!

Yeah, they are cutting down trees, they removed an entire woods section in Leogang.
That being said, the footage is worth it imo: https://youtu.be/Nem8ltZmcss?t=13

Typically flat riders ride more rear spring (because they're weighting their feet more and leaning back more) and clip riders run more front spring. I used to bump up two clicks of low speed in my fork when I switched to clips. Now I just run clips all the time cuz I finally...more

Just wanted to chime in here and clarify that a) welding tolerance on aluminum frame head angles is ~1.0 degrees, and b) you absolutely, positively cannot feel 0.5 degrees of head angle change.

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
