ah the good ol' days.

Brendog and blenki were some of the loosest riders on the circuit. Ben Reid would win practice. Blackbox program in full force. Rider's kits looked more like pajamas than race kits. Those mudguards haha (how didn't with think of fenders before) Carbon frames were just starting to be introduced into WC racing (I was a skeptic). Peaty was on the hunt. Freecaster. Everyone as a whole was looser on a bike and made those tracks seem extra gnarly. Crazy how far we've come in a decade....

Can we get another one of these but even earlier on? When did Vital RAW become a thing? Also Spomer, can we get a compilation of all the super slow-mo vids? Loved those!

Really well done Transition! Think this is a huge step forward for the brand and I'm excited to see other bikes in their line up get a similar treatment. Also love the versatility they're giving the bike with the ability to long stroke the rear shock, for heavier riders, that means a lower leverage ratio and less PSI/damping in your shock, that's rad shit. I'm with vital on this one though, seeing size dependent chainstay length would be the icing on the cake for this bike. Regardless, can't wait to try one of these out on my home trails.

Think that's a typo Spomer. The Atlas bar they tested is a 35mm bar if I'm not mistaken. Either way, love this show, keep it coming guys!

Vital MTB's Transition Patrol Carbon Test Bike

Running that exact tire combo right now and it's killer!

Would probably be riding one of these if I didn't have the nomad, shame Rockshox doesn't have a super deluxe for this frame

Hey Sam Hill, What's with Your Bulge?

Ah it would be so rad if Rockshox produced air cans that would create different ride characteristics or were better optimized for different frame designs. Troy Brosnan and numerous other world cup riders had similar air cans to what Mark Scott was running in that photo.

THE END. La Bresse World Cup DH Finals Slideshow

BIG shout out to Boris, Sven, and Dan, and all world cup/ews photographers for that matter. The coverage you guys provide every race is phenomenal... From the photos (and editing), to the interviews, to being out there through thick and thin, you guys are the heros of mountain bike racing. There's a lot of people that don't get enough credit for doing what they do for racers and the world cup, but I have to tip my hat to the photographers that not only inspire me, but make mountain biking the best sport with the best coverage in the world. Cheers boys, I already can't wait for next season!

Worth noting that this was just a practice run, the man is just having fun but still looking so smooth and fast in sections. Chain reaction put up another helmet cam that's even better btw

Updates are cool and all, but that nomad has the raddest paint job I've seen in awhile! I wish there was a way to send your super deluxe in and have the new air sleeve and check valve installed...

With seat posts becoming longer and longer, this is a logical standard that I think more bike and dropper companies should follow. Kind of crazy to think that our seat posts have the same amount of travel if not more than our suspension
