Awsome shot. But I don't see the trust factor Secco pointed out - they're hitting a few different jumps!

Video: Welcome to Utah
Two thoughts: 1. Awesome vid. Makes me wonder who will win an FMB Diamond event first, Seth or Jackson. 2. People think it is expensive to help your kid get to the next level in sports like hockey… think of how much the family put into making that edit happen for their kid.

Intense Announces the M16
Is the BB really that high or does the bike run with so much sag that the effective BB height is much lower? Without any load it looks far too high for a race sled.

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
Do any of the people posting understand the basic physics of how helmets work? Any attachment to the helmet can compromise how it is designed to perform. The theory is that they focus the impact force instead of allowing it to be dissipated across the various layers of the helmet. But this isn't proven or disproven yet. I'm surprised GoPro hasn't put up the money to fund research to refute the claim because their stock valuation plummeted over $2.4billion after Schumacher's accident and claims surfaced that the camera mount may be responsible. Seems they have th biggest incentive to conduct the necessary research. Since nobody knows for sure, but it is conceivable and, as stated by @randybadger, an easily eliminated liability risk, UCI did the prudent thing here. If this were a media issue the UCI would be cracking down on spectator cameras as well, don't ya think?

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
UCI's liability for spectators is different than their liability to riders paying membership fees to ride in races sanctioned by the UCI. I don't disagree that media rights is a factor here, but liability is probably the driving force.

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
You guys are thinking logically in a case of liability - the two don't align. :) Helmet manu's - for the most part - aren't testing 3rd party attachments with respect the performance of their helmet. And they most likely never will because there are too many variables outside of their control to properly and economically do such testing. Without tests to say if it is safe or not, UCI doesn't really have an option here thanks to good ol' insurance companies and the legal "profession". I would be curious to know UCI's position for helmet-mounted cameras with helmets that have manufacturer-made integrated camera mounts… that seems to fall through the cracks of their rationale. Not like MTB is the first sport to make such a ruling. But I do agree that the overall safety rules are inconsistent as to where athletes are allowed to assume risk and where they are bound by regulation.

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
Sucks as a spectator, but it doesn't take a phd to see how an object on a helmet could, in rare instance, cause the design of the helmet to be compromised and lead to serious injury. And not just your head, anyone ever landed on their chesty mount without pads on at 65kph from 12ft in the air? I haven't, but I bet it would suck big time. Now should a rider have a choice? Yep - in principle. But in reality, UCI has a legal responsibility to set reasonable regulations that limit their liability and act accordingly. Because of dips hit law-suit happy idiots who are slowly giving the courts parental rights over everyone.

Interview: Claudio Caluori
You forgot the most obvious question: "Claudio, did you ever think a couple of course preview videos would somehow result in you becoming the unofficial voice of UCI DH Tracks to THE WORLD?" Love this guy. What a tremendous personality to have involved in racing and cycling. And those pump tracks…. wow
