2013 Red Bull Rampage: Impressions
Agreed, seemed like the natural lines almost had a handicap on them, I bet TMac would have scored better if that had of been the big wooden Oakley sender in place of the big natural drop (which I thought was pretty awesome). Not trying to be an ass about it, it was still an awesome event and fun to watch, I just would like to see the natural lines on more of a level playing field. I totally agree with what Vanderham said too, seemed like the riders who put it all on the line in a second run pretty much got screwed. Especially Bingelli, felt bad seeing him break his leg in a run that didn't count.

2013 Red Bull Rampage: WIN
They only counted the first runs since not everyone got a chance for a second run.

The Argument for Long Travel Bikes - Opinion
I agree with your point about the attitude, but I do think it goes both ways as well. I have out-climbed a fair number of people on my DH bike that obviously thought they were pretty elite with their fully rigid or short travel bike and spandex plastered with corporate logos, but I am far from the tight jean "bro" stereotypical big bike rider. Both sides have their sterotype eliteist attitude, but I think most of us fall in the middle, I know I do. I rode a short travel Rocky for several years before I decided to get a DH bike end of last summer, and I have loved it. It may be more forgiving of mistakes in line choice, but I feel you have to be more exact on big lines to keep it clean and free from pedal strikes, as well as giving me many new line choices that I hadn't even considered before. I will be the first to admit that my long travel DH sled is probably overkill for a lot of the trails I commonly ride, but I would not trade it for some of the burlier trails around and more big mountain type riding that I am trying. In the end, I know there are plenty of people out there that can smoke me on much less bike than my DH bike, but I ride it because its what pushes me to improve and makes me happy, and in the end I think thats all that matters. It shouldn't matter what kind of bike we ride or what we ride in, we all ride to have fun, so why should it matter how we achieve that?
