Day 2 Randoms - Sea Otter 2015
Who really cares if the end product consumers receive is proper and without issue. Seems most of you guys aren't happy unless you can find a flaw in something or come up with a reason to complain. Lots of hot air in these comments for no good reason other than just trying to be controversial.

Day 2 Randoms - Sea Otter 2015
Let me shine some light on the reason pre production stuff gets tested so often. Magazines, press camps, trade shows, product guides have deadlines. Often times those deadlines are months before you actually see and read them. These dates are set far in advance and often times final production stuff just isn't ready yet plain and simple. It's eaither send nothing or send something with finalized geometry and suspension which is really all that matters for the most part. God forbid your carbon layup isn't done yet..... As for Yeti, go read the numerous long term reviews of the SB6 from actual production bikes, or of the SB5 that and tell me how many have had issue? None. How about all he bikes under consumers at the moment? Right none there either. Get off the hate train folks and realize things happen for a reason. It's not some big conspiracy out to get you. No one is selling you preproduction stuff.

The Last Crusade - Lourdes DH Finals Photo Epic
Gwinn was the fastest on track all weekend. We were calling him for the win the whole time. He crashed a bunch in practice pushing too hard, but a handful of us photograohers were in agreance if he stayed on he'd win by 3 seconds.... He stayed on and won by 4.

The protected riders in the top 20 qualify automatically and the Quali run is really just a seeding run for them and a chance to get points. If the flat, get DQ'd, etc and finish off the back they are reseeded right before the top 20 in the final. This is so the top riders all race the se track on race day regardless of weather and deteriorating conditions. Gwinn, Gee, Hart, etc who had horrid Quali runs came down together with the rest of the front runners.

I believe the truth is Josh left Monster as he just didn't want to endorse a product he did not use. Classy if you ask me.

Usually the hate is directed at the non neck brace wearers by the " OMG the neck brace obviously saved him" camp ;-)

It was more a catastrophic wheel explosion more than it was a flat tire on Neko's bike. Same goes for Neethling who blew up a shell in the same spot. The track was brutal plain and simple.

Only the XC team is a uci trade team. The downhill team is not.

Brown Bear was seen very intoxicated and puking at 9:30pm outside the media center entrance.... Let's hope he rallies back in time for the finals.
