Poll: Sickest Whip Fan Favourite
Finn put it as far out there as anyone. It was super dipped, AND he brought it back 100%. Clear winner with no bias IMHO.

Hey PB. Your mobile content is brutal to read. How about some improvements?

I actually agree. Same with the seat-tube being set ahead of the end of the top tube. I understand that it's a mule. I just hope these two things change on the production model

The SB6 won't be winning any XC world cups any time soon either. Didn't stop them. It'll certainly be a super bike in it's class that's for sure, same as the others.

Results: Garbanzo DH - Crankworx 2014
Finn Iles wins the 13-15 class only a minute off the pro men pace at 14y/o! Only 10 seconds off his big bro. Time would have won open men and pro women! Jesus!

Crankworx 2014: Video - Enduro World Series Round 6
So much for "No Strava" on microclimate, I guess that's out the window when the map gets posted on PB....

Course Preview: World Cup DH in Meribel
Thats a reasonable price for a casual hire bell 205 or 212 (if you're in the fire game) http://philip.greenspun.com/flying/boston-aerial-photography This company will rent you a Robinson R44 for $600 an hour, then 450 p/h for each subsequent hour. A bell 206L can be had for around $1100 plus a camera operator. http://www.whiteriverhelicopters.ca/category/helicopters/ prices will obviously vary by country and will almost certainly be cheaper due to the contacts that a company like RedBull has. The live stream online is allocated 2hrs, so I can't see why they'd need a helicopter in the air for any longer than that.

Furthermore, I'm not sure how aviation laws work internationally but generally RedBull would likely hold an air operators certificate in most countries around the world these days, they have no doubt got the certification for "aerial filming" or something to that effect already in place, providing the aircraft is operated under their operating certificate the legalities should be relatively easy to deal with, the cost isn't "insane" it's a couple of grand, 5k at absolute most for a really nice machine.

Course Preview: World Cup DH in Meribel
To counter some points here, the heli would only be filming the top 45-60 seconds of the course, so could get pretty close to making the turnaround back to the top for the next rider at 60 second intervals, once you get to the final 20? or so riders they leave at 3 minute intervals, so plenty of time.... Also, fully fuelled a helicopter could quite easily broadcast non-stop for the entire DH event, theres plenty of machines that can fly for 2 hours continuously, no need for a mid-event fuel stop. Particularly if fuel was available at the event site to keep transit times low. Worst case it's only a 60 second flight to the mountain base, and an engineer can hot-refuel in less than 5 minutes, you might miss a couple of riders while it was refuelling. Not a huge issue.
