Shimano BDS 2014: Rd 1, Antur Stiniog - Practice Day
On a course like this Gee will be rewarded by choosing 650b. The course is so wide he could even run a 29 up front if he really wanted to embarrass the competition.

So wide n smooth you could cyclocross it with two fatties on pegs standing on either side.

From the description I thought the track would be more interesting. More drops into corners, corners into drops, off camber turns. Danny knows what he's doing by avoiding all those dumb rock bermed corners and sloshing through the mud and ungroomed shag on the insides of the corners. Shows you what he thinks of the course designers who put all that work into building crap that no one rides.

@Roadie. Technical in roadie terms may be rocks and roots, but in the MTB world it means "requiring technique". i.e. braking to slow down for unbermed corners. Changing direction to get around trees and obstacles, managing traction between front and rear wheels over different surfaces, dropping in and changing directions at the same time etc.etc. 650b is the result of straighter DH courses that try to seem tech with roots n rox. But really you can just straight line it and not worry bout braking traction cause the berm at the end will catch you and do all the hard work of turning.

Wow! UCI put a minimum 6 foot width on DH racetracks? That's like 2 Canadian Meters! Talk about dumbing down the sport!

tight trails and tecnical riding doesnt sell expensive bikes to 40 year olds. But seriously, a lot of DH trails are becoming a joke. They need to start a downhill cyclocross series where you have a bunch of spandexies racing down the same DH track that the "PRO"'s ride. They'll have to roll the drops and go a bit slower, but it'll take a whole lot more skill.

There was a time when mountain biking was more of a fringe sport, and the trails people rode were mostly hiking or deer trails. You needed 26s or even 24s to get around tight switchbacks and narrow flights of steps carved into mountain sides. People cut their bars short to 23 and 24 inches to get between woodland trees or have clearance with the mountain side when riding singletrack. Wheels are getting bigger because most "expensive gear" buying People dont ride single track anymore. They like their trails all wide and all their corners all groomed and bermed. No more picking the pair of trees barely shoulder width apart or negotiating a switchback tighter than your wheelbas3. Welcome to the nwo. Trails so smooth and flowy you could ride it on a roadbike Unless you're a noob. Then you'll need the latest 27.5 with 160 of travel to soak up those pesky pebbles in the trail

Video: Between the Trees
I like the raw ungroomed trails like they got at the beginning of this vid. I remember back in the day we used to ride rigid bikes with bars cut shoulder width because that was the narrowest gap between trees you could ride through. And curved bar ends to save the broken knuckles for the times you clipped the trees too close.
