Vital RAW: Hafjell, Norway World Cup Downhill Mountain Bike Action 16

So here's what will happen after you watch this. You'll have blisters on your hands, you will have no fillings left in your teeth and you'll look over at your bike to notice its tires have gone flat.

HOLY SH!T action from the Hafjell World Cup today with riders like Blenkinsop, Remi Thirion, Steve Smith, Gee Atherton, Sam Hill and plenty more.

    Gee was clearly fastest through that rooty section with the big rock and then that little wooden bridge jump looking thing after. Dayum.

    Not that I have a worst enemy but, if I did, I wouldn't wish that upon even them. My everything sank watching the full clip.

    This is totally unrelated to bikes, but all the Troll talk reminded me: On Netflix instant, there is a badass movie called Trollhunter - a Norwegian film, and it kicks ass. Give it a chance and watch it:

    Healing vibes to the Lapierre rider. If they walked away from that one, I'd be pleasantly surprised.

    Those bikes sound like my bike in less rockier sections. They're pro. I'm not. Case closed.

    Can't believe how quiet the pro's bikes are these days. Rough as guts rock gardens and all you can hear is tires.

    I think the clutch derailleur has made the biggest difference in bike noise. It's amazing what a difference it makes. I put one on my trail bike and went 1x10 with no front mech and the bike literally doesn't make a sound. Seems like such a simple idea to add a clutch, not sure why it took the companies so long.
