Pinkbike Awards: Downhill Race of the Year Nominees
No, by tagging you and saying 'keyboard jockey, ahem' I most definitely didn't call you a keyboard jockey... Oh wait, yes I did. Assuming that you've never seen Gee ride in person or stood trackside as he skips through a rock garden, yes, I am calling you a keyboard jockey, which is what you are -- someone who spews shit online that they know nothing about. Having been trackside and watching any of the top ten guys (or hell, top 60!) ride, I can tell you that any of those boys have steeze, style, and skill -- just look at the body English! Pretending to have some secret, elusive 'steeze' definition is just nonsense. Does steeze exist? Absolutely. Does Gee have it? Most definitely. Does it come through in his racing? Of course. Maybe you're just not understanding the broader range of 'steeze' or that different folks have different styles of 'steeze' -- it's not all about Pinkbike arms and corner manuals, kid.

@gabriel-mission... You know, I said the same thing about Windham the weekend of the ESC course preview race. MSA is definitely a way better course and Meribel, well... Duh. But Windham WAS set apart because it's such a massively fast, huge course -- the first time I hit the larger road gap was the morning of qualifiers. Until that moment, I had been totally full of shit, because Windham mixed the calendar up enough to really challenge everyone. It was blisteringly fast and he/she with the fastest line, biggest balls won. I think it's important to have at least one course like that, especially with the back-to-back dates of the races and how much the community loves having the WC there. If they had just killed the RSA (Pietermaritzburg) and Cairns races and just left Windham amongst some steep, hectic tracks, it would have made for a challenging, crazy season that most of the riders would have probably loved. It's a tough call, but there are all different skill sets and we have to somehow reward the best all-around racers.

Gee's really not an ass -- like a lot of folks, he simply suffers from what appears to be 'Resting Dick Face' or 'Resting Bitch Face'... When relaxed, he simply looks grumpy. I myself suffer from this and it makes people upset, but it's a genetic, chronic disease millions of people around the world suffer from. ;) Everyone assumes so much from a photo or video; just understand that it's one moment of billions over the course of someone's life and seeing their face in what, 100 moments and assuming that person is 'always in a bad mood' or 'not very sociable' or 'always grumpy' is just asinine. But hey -- this is the internet, and god forbid anyone use actual common sense!

Pinkbike Awards: Female Gravity Racer of the Year Nominees
Oh my fucking god. THANK YOU. Anne Caro is the embodiment of everything beautiful about this sport, regardless of gender. She's still shredding, still hunting down those wins and still the most decorated DH racer to ever grace the top of a podium. If that's not legendary, I don't know what is. Downhill isn't a kind sport, either -- for anyone to come back, year after year after year and post these kinds of wins? ACC is my pick for 2014 and next year and the one after that.
