John and Rob Parkin from DirtTV are at it again catching the action while the Italian sun blazes on. The top five is stacked with Gee, Gwin, Smith, Brook and Hill, but who will squeeze out that extra inch tomorrow to claim victory?

 Would love Brook MacDonald to take the win!
  • + 37
 I'd rather love Sam to win... It would be cool if he was doing the same run than in 2008 but without the crash...

BTW: God why doesn't Brook shave? He looks like a homeless...
  • + 5
 Oh that's why... !
  • + 42
 He rocks that beard, what are you on about.
  • + 6
 SAM STAY ON THE BiKE ! Come down on a 5 and we re all goood for NOW ! My favourite by far but I dont want to loose him again
  • + 9
 Nooooo your all wrong, its going to be Gee again ! bit biased because he's a local but COME ON GEE!

 Beard is under his helmet fella‚Ķ This aint XC Wink

 look like Athertons are pretty much in a good shape and most probably they will be on the podium again
  • + 22
 Why doesn't brook shave???? Because he aint no clipped in, latte sipping, leg shaving shaving nancy boy!!!.. Thats Why!!! ............ Beards are what separates the men from the boys.....
  • - 7
 I think beards are cool on the face, but not on the neck. It needs a bit of a neck trim with the clippers round the edges. I think Gwin's going to do it tomorrow. Id love to be wrong but look what happened last year, victory by 8 seconds, he's a machine on this track. Even if the Demo is 8 seconds slower than the session, he's still going to win. Hopefully Hart will do it, but I feel he's gone backwards... Brosnan too.

 Actually, he does shave his legs, but I won't hold it against him. Go Bulldog!
  • + 6
 stevie was also lookin fast
  • + 3
 And that's why you call yourself "BJ"
  • + 3
 Dudes i heard that hes not going to shave until he wins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


just kidding i totally made that up. Smile
Still i think that is what he should do.........

 Weird comment. I'm sure 80% of all graphics you see are designed by people with beards..

 It's a playoff beard but World Cup

 Holy crap i never realized that Joseph Kony followed wc!!!!!!!!!!!

 Anyone else blown away by Remi Thirion's transfer at 5:02? Mental!
  • + 1
 Exactly. He's on for big things this year if he can hold onto it...
  • + 1
 Yeah! That got all of my attention!
  • + 1
 sick stuff man...
  • + 1
 That guy is so rad and loose... I can't wait to watch tomorrow.

 Called it! Remi is a beast.

 to bad he had to over take a guy! Frown

 He looked so so fast!
  • + 3
 That's cos he is fast!

 Gee was making the track look like cake per usual - 26" bikes are still King in my book for DH and Gee is just confirming that. He looks so much smoother than the 650b and 29s out there.

 The guy at 5:01-5:04 is awesome, the balls required for that line, wow.

 Sick backside into that root section! Absolutely sick !

 The athertons are killing it

 Looking at the footage of Gee at the end, he really has a precision to his riding that some others might not. He seems to know exactly which line to take, then nails it every time! This really is going to be his season.
  • + 5
 like gwin last season, seemingly always on the right line.
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Love the Parkins' videos. They are so good and put together so fast! It's refreshing to see footage shot with something other than a wide angle lens. It captures the speed so much better. Keep up the good work fellas.

 It's a going to be a rip snorter of a race, may we get a couple of kiwis in the top 5 again......
[Reply]

 hill for the win!! straya

 I just hope Rob Warner can keep it together tomorrow. If this race is as tight as I'm expecting it to be, the poor guy may just lose his voice forever - especially if Hart gets in the zone. It might be wise to have medics on standby in the commentary booth!! Wink

 I see it a little irresponsible not to wear elbow and back protections, when a hit there can stop you from maiing it to the next race....just curious. I'm soo oldschool, I know...whatever...but here in spain if you work and you get hurt and can not work, est assured you're fired, good luck trying to find a job again
  • + 7
 glad I don't live in spain.
  • + 26
 Wait, What? There are people in Spain who work!!

 There's a big difference between world cup racing and weekend warrior riding...

 Great track! Looking forward for a great race tomorrow. Hope there won't be a reason to wake up for this sleeping medical team.

 That 3 second replay button on the bottom left of the screen is the best invention ever. That needs to be on every video for all time.
