We took a holiday to Cali last year and I managed to spend one day on a rental Rocky Mountain Flatline at Mammoth... I gained a whole new level of respect for the guys who were racing Mammoth back in the 90's. It was exactly like it looked on video, and was super nostalgic, but that top section is seriously rough, and doing that on a hardtail or FS with 30-50mm travel would have been nuts. Also, I found how insanely loose the ground is up there, it's like the loosest pea gravel type stuff I have ever ridden on! Had to let a good 10PSI out the Minions just to get ANY grip!

The kamikaze is why tires like the white onza porcupines and the grey umma gumma specialized tires were created. The white onza's had no carbon in the rubber and were SUUUUPPEEEERRR tacky / low durometer. I gave a pair of new ones to a buddy for his birthday around 1995 and he used them at MSA and they were worn out after 3 runs down the mountain.

Seeing the Mammoth Mountain Kamakazie was the reason I got into downhilling back in the day (1996 I think). At the time is was the 'raddest' thing around, and was all about how badass you could be. If it wasn't for these guys, the sport wouldn't be where it is today. It's awesome to see these legends out riding again! Keep the dream alive.

Same. John Tomac sliding round those corners....... This race made downhill a viable sport back in the day, and looked so fast and dangerous that you just had to get on your bike! The track and it's riders were instrumental in the creation of Dh as we know it today.

I think modern DH can take a leaf from the mammoth track , one track a year should be some thing like this , completely flat out areo tuck madness with some tech wooded bit thrown in , like MSA but faster!

PMB? I know its kinda boring on camera but that's exactly what it is. Extremely fast and loose.

The one legged shredder reminds me of the beast that used to do trials/north shore type stuff in the old Kranked videos. Rad

Awesome footage (minus the tune), so happy to be a part of tradition and I hope this thing blows up next year.
(Sep 7, 2013 at 15:28)
Are we not going to talk about how many people were riding without visors?
(Sep 7, 2013 at 14:30)

Great event. EL CHEEPO Pay outs. 3,000 $ for first wont even cover a ER bill or buy a new bike.

3 grand is actually a lot in mtbing as prize money goes... most of their earnings come from sponsors.
(Sep 7, 2013 at 12:59)
brian lopes seems like a d bag
(Sep 7, 2013 at 13:27)
Lopes is a class act!
(Sep 7, 2013 at 13:54)
Anybody that know him knows he's an uber d bag
(Sep 7, 2013 at 14:28)
there is a saying that goes "It takes one to know one"...
(Sep 8, 2013 at 0:08)
a bit douchey but the thing I don't like about him is that he just sits there milking his career and his sponsors when everyone else that used to ride with him is long retired, wish he'd move on and let a younger rider take his place
