Results: Men's DH World Championship
Actually BDKR, it does have to do with the wheels and geometry, wheather is a flat track, or not, DH bikes have the wheel and the geometry to take on those hidden brake holes and stuff you might find in the track.....Graves, he is used to this bike, hence the advantage of him using that bike, you can't expect to adapt to a very different geometry of the bike in few weeks...

Aaron Gwin's Prototype Demo Race Bike - Andorra World Cup
OH MY GOD...yeap....I knew it...Protour seems to know a crapload of stuff...but some people did not believe him... Protour (Jun 21, 2013 at 22:44) The Demo doesn't needs adjustable chainstays, it just needs longer chainstays. And it needs them by the next World Cup race next month! Keep the short chainstays on the Status freeride bike but for World Cup DH the Demo needs longer chainstays, and especially for Arron Gwins forward leaning style, as described above by fr33riding. With Specialized resources they should be able top get a new chainstay made by the next race that's an inch or so longer and I'm going to be very disappointed as a Gwin fan if they don't come through. As far as I'm concerned Specialized has already cost Gwin 2 likely World Cup wins by not having him adequately prepared for the season with proper testing and keeping him on the same bike is going to make for a really long, painful summer in Morgan Hill, and not just from the increased heat of global warming. The brand has taken a hit but it's not to late to learn, improve, innovate, and adapt. It's also not to late for Gwin to win the overall. It would be a challenge with Gee's lead but if Gwin could get back on a bike that fits his style and get back his old dominating form anything is possible

Aaron Gwin's Prototype Demo Race Bike - Andorra World Cup
HE IS A GOD..... Protour (Jul 14, 2013 at 7:08) I should race the World Cup circuit based upon what I've typed on the Internet, that's brilliant. the pedaling issues on the demo are a slight disadvantage, but the short chainstays on the demo are what is really holding Gwin back

ransom150....true, if they did not wanted to decline the invitation, they did not had to, then shut your pilehole and ride....as I said, the wind, yeah, if that was the real reason, then I kind of agree, but you have to see that 60% of the final riders rode it thru...so, I'm not 100% sure that was the main reason.....even in their comments they do not point out strongly enought that the wind factor was pulling them out, they keep hitting the fact the course was not any good...there is where I have the problem, I´m not going to hit something as such in my entire life, but these guys are PRO, they are the best there is outthere....and they backout because did not like the course?!!!...WTF?!!! and about the course, I'm not 100% sure, but I do recall The Claw was contacted for advice...so, it was not just something they did it and forgot about the riders.... Now, one question....did the BMX guys pull out because the park was too big...? and so on with the rest of the disciplines...

sionr644....the course was known before...they could have decline right from the first view they had, which was 3-4days prior of the main event and let other riders take it if it was Ok with ESPN....i completly agree with dhross....weather conditions might get fair reason to pull out....but just because you don't like the course...?!!!..cmon!!!!....lets see if that happens in Pietermaritzburg for the world cup...they all dislike the course for being a pedalling course, but they would race it anyhow...

This event brought me to my mind the words from Semenuk on why he is not that active this 2013..... I don´t have any personal opinion, but from what I have just read, and the history behind them, I take Cam McCaul and The Claw as the most trustful ones.....they both have ride longer than the others, and are in full entitlement to say what they have to say..... Course was not suited?, and as Pilgrim said, you had to be a 4x to get to the sattelite dish....PUFFFFF....you are on a freaking bike, you have pedals, suck it up and pedal for it....I think this part is being forgotten by a large majority of people in our sport, pedalling....now, if the course was not very well and all the crap...why the hell Semenuk and Rheeder pull out an impressive runs....and the other brave and TRUE TO THE SPORT drop in?....they knew what they were up to...perhaps (i hope not) the only chance to show the sport to the WORLD...yes....ESPN and their powermuscle can bring a sport to the eye of the world....but you have to have the sport really running thru your veins to drop in and make it count regardles of the course and conditions, and those 6 guys...they really live for the sport and don't care about the rest....PROPS TO THEM....
