By FAR my favorite track walk ever. I know this was a lot of work (splicing in old clips) but well worth it. Thanks Vital!

Thanks man. Very happy to hear you’re stoked on the content. It feels like people were frothing even harder this year for World Cup RAW videos!
Spomer asked me to dig out riders riding rocks then suggested I travel a little further into the past so I dug out my 2010 hard drive. I had originally everything in chronological order on the timeline which was cool but I thought it might be cool to group the shots by location regardless of the year. It jumps back and forth which is cool as you can see Mick Hannah hitting the same section of track in 2010 followed immediately by Gwin seven years later.
I guess to answer your question on editing process, I wanted to visually show how far bikes have come since 2010 by putting shots of the fastest in the World side by side with more recent shots. I find it fascinating that the bikes of 2010, at the time, couldn’t have been more dialled. Everything was perfect, yet with the passing of time, it seems so obvious that there was huge room for improvement.
It makes me wonder what bikes will look like in 10 years time and what way we will look back on the bikes of 2020.

Unreal that after half an hour of racing, the times are so tight. Insane

I have a few pairs of Shimano 737's around. Some have been ridden thousands of miles and still function perfectly despite being smashed and having deep gouges all over them. Shimano at its best.

Practice before qualifying at the 2017 Lourdes World Cup DH was all-time as riders leave nothing in the tank to find their lines through the incredibly rough and technical off-camber sections of the lower track. View Qualifying Results

Ha, no way, it's me at 3.20 doing a rolling stoppy turn thingy into the last steep section before the finish straight!

Despite this clip being called 'Steve Peat Kaprun 94', l I think the year was actually 1995. Myles Rockwell won this race on his Cannondale. Jawlor

Hi Guys Just wondering if anyone out there has a copy of the Specialized advert where they announced that he was getting a salary of $1Million. I'm pretty sure it was the beginning of 1997, as this was when he signed with Specialized for his 3 year deal. ... more »
