 Mitch Ropelato's seemed to have some very honest (and refreshing) comments about his bike choice. Hopefully the kid gets a top ten tomorrow!

 In the back of every DH'ers mind, a collective sigh of relief was let out when Ropelato crashed. Shame for the guy, but, well, you know.

 Interesting that the top two timed training guys (Smith and Ropelato) threw away their runs in the first turn. Nerves...I think yes.

 Are you guys serious^? A bike is a bike. If Mitch likes 29ers that is no different then some one liking 26's.

 @MarkleMedia, if that was directed at me, I apologize for not making myself more clear. I really don't care what wheel size anyone rides, (I myself found that I'm partial to big wheels even on big terrain, big hits, and steep lines after extensive demoing), but was merely suggesting that they both had a lot to prove from their runs in practice, and just cracked under the pressure. As Mitch said, it's not the bike it's the rider.

 I'd love few people to win to shake that sport a bit. Graves, cuz he's an outsider and he's on AM bike, Ropelato cuz he's on a 29er or Gwin cuz people talk so much sht either about him or his bike so it would be good to shut them up. But if a business as usual should proceed, let it be Stevie for being awesome.

 What is with your inability to give credit to Dirt for this Matt… it always comes across as really unprofessional for PinkBike.
Everyother website that links to Dirt TV manages it just fine.

 The winner will be an underdog and he'll win with a big time margin, that's my guess
