 Redbull actually changed their player?! Hell yes! It plays better but it looks like its designed for old people who need huge font...
  • + 109
 The power of pinkbike!?

And that was such a sick video. Cannot wait for the WC season to begin!
  • + 3
 does anyone know when this is airing
  • + 1
 sometimes I cover myself in vaseline and pretend to be a slug
  • + 46
 sometimes I try to make shitty youtube comments into the new "looks like a session" and pretend that i'm witty

 my computer wont even load the player....
  • + 44
 There's a world cup this year? I thought UCI was having a hotdog eating championship instead.
  • - 33
 Gwin, Minaar and Gee will be top three in no particular order. Stevie might get a top ten or two.
  • - 10
 Hey I never said it was witty.
  • + 10
 stevie is taking the cup this year folks
  • + 3
 That's a tall order... then again Gwin came outta nowhere so a vet like Stevie taking it isn't so far-fetched.
  • + 6
 Is there going to be a dirt fantasy league this year?
  • + 9
 Gwin looked so stoned at the start. No change then
  • + 30
 i dont undestand why is stevie suddenly goin to win everythin, neg prop me Canadians
  • + 10
 Hope Sam will do better, even if I doubt about it, it would be so nice seeing him kicking ass again Smile
Like when he was injured and came back for the world champs and won it... awesome
  • + 7
 How's Sam hill was still in Specialized gear in the portrait shots haha
  • - 8
 I guess this year will be Ratboy's year, with permission from Danny Hart. Minaar is having fun doing backflips and superman seat grab, his mission is done. Gwin doesn't find the feeling with the Demo, looks fast, but Ropelato is faster than him.
  • + 6
 you took that slug comment from newschoolers
  • + 9
 STAAYYYYY ON YAAA BIKEEE DANNYYYYY!!!
  • + 14
 I am almost more pumped for Rob Warner's commentary than the riding....almost
  • + 2
 I just wanna see Stevie's stach. If he can grow something even more epic he will be unstoppable!!
  • + 2
 Believe in Steve!
  • - 5
 @haledavies123: I started riding bikes in '94 with a Kona Cinder Cone wich I still own. IMO I'm not a "newschooler". Anyway, I don't f*****g care about your slug opinion.
  • + 4
 With the world champs in South Africa, you really think Minaar is just doing backflips?
  • - 2
 We will see... Minaar will be the favourite one in World Champs, but World Cup will be a thing of hungry-for-victory new schoolers
  • - 5
 Just give Gwin the overall now and get it over with. He skip out on Creek and Plattekill races so must be doing super secret wind tunnel testing getting ready for this wc coming up. World Champs? ?? What is that? Theres the wc then the world champs whos the real champ? Make them brawl it out in cage match for the belt.
  • + 3
 ^ are you just asking to be neg propped?? This year will be closer than ever as more and more people are closing in on Gwin, I wouldn't absolutely count on him taking home the title
  • + 4
 Oh nooo not the propers anything but that haaahaa. Here's a more pink friendly assessment of wc standings. There will be trials and tribulations throughout this highly contested season of racing culminating with a winner that might shock the whole dh community. There you little guys happy now. Or Gwin going to smash everyone to pieces and coast to victory as usual muhahaa oooOOo neg propers get your prop buttons ready.
  • + 0
 ^ You'd be surprised at how many kids really care about "props", haha. The World Championship is what determines who wears that neato jersey and some people believe that World's is the most important race of the season. I am one of those people. Also notice the HATRED people receive for saying Gwin is the best or along the lines of he's going to win again... bro like SO many neg props!
  • - 2
 Do you get a prize for most props or something?
  • + 2
 I think it's a reach-around from yourself.
  • + 1
 The key word you said was kids care about props. Have to always remember 75% of the members of pink are half my age. World Championships Vs WC overall I would take the overall. One race is great but overall shows who the best rider is in my opinion. All I know is the WC season starting way too late in season and it going to be a battle. The part of the battle getting corny for me is the tech battle. They in the pitts going buck air this carbon that 27.5 up your ehhhy!!!!! Who got the biggest skillz? ???? Thats what I want to know. What bike setup he on is not important to me.
  • - 1
 Gwin was and is one of those shock and awe characters in the circuit right now. The way he raced so blisteringly fast and consistently was truly something to reckon and for a while, no one had an answer to him. Doubt few still do. But, and there's always a but, beyond pulling seconds over the second place in some courses, what he has showed the sport is that there is still a way to go faster; through their own means and training programs, racers like McDonald, Smith, Gee, Minnaar, Ratboy, Sik Mik, Hill, etc., are closing in the gap because now they too have seen what blisteringly fast speed can look like via Gwin.

Gwinny is gonna be fast, believe that, but he is not going to be the fastest man out there anymore. These boys are hungry and I'll be damned if I don't see Hill of Smith or anyone else in that podium.

Saddle up everyone, this year's world cup is gonna be one for the record and history books.
  • + 1
 All I know is in the pro grt series he is leading currently, he chose to duck the plattekill race. Most likely to get injured there over any mountain in the world. He starting to play it safe and that can hav a negative effect on overall motivation. Has he already accomplished his goals or is looking for G.O.A.T. status?????
  • + 0
 Gwin raced two of the most recent NW Cup races...won the most recent one. He'll be fine.
  • + 1
 Thats his comfort zone NW smooth track easy stuff. He turned down the resl wild gnar filled Plattekill and the rock crusted Mt Creek in the pro grt series that he is now barely leading because of his non attendance.

 Same here. Warner is a legend and his antics are so much fun to look forward too.

 I'm predicting a battle between Danny Hart, Steve Smith, and Gwin for the overall. Gwin will still win some races, but being on a new bike and messing around with wagon wheels in the preseason will have him a little off.

Minnar is racing for World Champs in PMB, I don't expect much from him in the overall since he won't get world cup points from PMB like he usually does. He can't be at his best psychologically after Fabien dropped him twice in the enduro race. But will we see a 650 V 10 at PMB...and will this be the year we see a 29er debut in WC DH? Santa Cruz has all those tall guys...

Ft William will be an exciting battle between Gwin, Hart, and Gee...can't wait.
  • + 2
 You won't see a 29" DH bike. You will see a 650B DH bike though, but doubtfully under Minnar. Watch Special-ed's interview with Gwin and the boys and their reaction to wagon wheels in DH. Gwin laughs at the idea and the rumors. Pure marketing.
  • + 1
 link to this interview? tia
  • + 3
 It's on PB's front page. Just search Gwin and you'll see an interview with him, Rope, and mighty mouse. Also, bring on the neg prop PB haters for not being able to stomach the truth. Gwin says no. Minnar says no. PB says yes, apparently. Bunch of goofs.
  • + 5
 no hate. i think its clear 29ers dont have a solid future in DH. not just due to hype too - actual performance advantage of 26 over 29 in real gnarly DH situations.
  • + 1
 Wasn't referring to you. Just some clown who follows me around because his panties got all twisted up over a mental beatdown.

And I agree with you, and apparently a lot of pros do as well. I mean the hype was surrounding the 29ers in the past few months with people saying "I told you so" when Gwin won Sea Otter on a 29'er. Then in an interview he and the guys laugh at the idea of racing 29ers for actual world cups and he states 'No' and gives his reasons.
  • + 3
 people dont realize the sea otter dh and fontana dont hold a candle to world cup tracks. Not taking away from the spectacle of sea otter, but people regularly win on 4X rigs at sea otter. you cant do that at Val di Sole

  • + 12
 I got stoked to just go out on the local trails.
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Im rootign for Hill, Bulldog, Stevie Smith, or Troy Brosnan. Hill because a comeback would be sweet. Bulldog cause I like his style and how chill he is. Smith cause he's a likeable guy and he's got the ability. And last but not least Troy Brosnan cause he's young and it would be sweet to see him up their with the big dogs.

 and PEAT - cuz he's old. "he's so old he's falling apart" - Peat on Shandro, Seasons.

 Fort William Podium wish list, with emphasis on the wish part. Peaty to win qualifying and then be last man down the mountain with Bulldog, Sender and Minaar at the finish line in the hotseat... And he's out the gate... flying over the top boards... sketchy moments on the rocky switchbacks... and through the first split only .035 down on Bulldog... the crowd going wild all the way down the course... he's looking fast through the motorway section.. and is still only .2 down at the second split... he comes over the final jump, and the cacophony of noise erupts from the waiting throng... he's bursting his lungs, Warner is going apoplectic.. Great race Fort Bill, always will be the best of the season.

 what i would like is HILL to win the cup, but watching the gwins video that redbull posted i just don't think that anyone stands a chance there seriously he is like MAD MEN.
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I don't think this season will be all gwinn again. I think he will be top 5 at 5 or 6 races but not being as dominant. It really seems everybody stepped up their training in the off season to try and give him some competition

 Cant wait to hear Rob's commentaries again.

 I really like brendawg but honestly lost hope with all the injuries he has taken within the last few years.
  • + 1
 Some may say it may have little to do with the injuries and more to do with him lacking whatever it is that people like Gwin, Minaar, Gee and others seem to have in spades that consistently keeps them on the podium. Are they "better" riders than Brendog? Impossible to say, however they have that something that Brendon, injured or not, needs to find.

 Who do you think will win the World Cup this year? I think that Minnaar is going to take it this year.
  • + 2
 I can can see him do well, but l dont see Gwinning doing it this year. Brook or Steve Smith l think are the guys to watch out for.
  • + 9
 Seeing what Gwin does on the Demo is going to be very interesting.
  • + 5
 Stevie Smith is gonna be the one to watch this year.....

 I would love see Sam Hill win but I think it will come down to Gwin or Minnaar because of their consistency.

 Obnoxious? Yes. Am I fussed? No. Perhaps next time You'd like me to break the mold and refrain from comforming with the rest of the useless nonsense that is muttered on these forums/boards.

Regardless of the teary nights from negative props, I will still look forward to being able to cheer on an athlete from my home at the Fort Bill UCI World Cup.
