The Wizard of Aus: Leogang WC Round 3 - Finals Photo Epic
The field is way more competitive now than it was a decade ago. Many wrote Gwin off in 2013, now he's back putting 4 seconds into everyone at Lourdes and winning the gnarliest version of Leogang without a chain. Rainbows are overrated.

Let's not forget when Gwinner put 8 SECONDS into Minnaar on a DRY Val Di Sole track. Almost as amazing as winning a WC with no chain. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/261255/

Video: Aaron Gwin Unchained
I know what you are saying, but it really depends on the track. Graves made up something like 11 places at PMB on the pedal section with his enduro bike. Leogang also has a pretty long 'motorway' in the middle, where a lot of the stronger guys are able to shave time. Gwin couldn't even throw in a pedal and was 22nd place at the top split. The fact that he made up that much time through steeps and gnar is just mind boggling.

Yeah I would LOVE to see a pro chainless DH race. Bryceland has proven that smooth riding can often beat trying to pedal everywhere, and Mulally at worlds too. Gwin just looked so pinned and fluid over the rough sections on that run!! No chain from the start at Leogang track is truly an incredible feat though. There's 30 second pedal in the middle, and it was windy!?

Ask Pinkbike: Used Carbon, Shoe Advice, Replacement Cranks and Super Gravity Tires
I got that Joe, I just think it's goofy logic. Saying something is 'rideable' and 'strong', while at the same time developing a noticeable increase in flex is contradictory. I've seen cracked Alu frames last months with no further cracking or change in ride quality at all. It all depends on the location and type of damage, but if the stiffness of the Yeti instantly changed by such a noticeable degree, it is definitely not safe to ride in the manner that is was designed.

How does the picture help their case? The performance/structure of the frame was compromised ( e.g. "noticeably more flexible" ) but the only way one can tell is by checking all over for "soft" spots? Sounds like a ticking time bomb to me.

I always chuckle when the top american SX racers thank god in their post race interviews. Moto racing and Jesus are just a part of the rural USA culture. Maybe it helps to believe in a higher power when you out there risking your life every race? Either way Gwin is a chill guy and always gives props to the other riders. Hard to fault him, and his riding speaks for itself! Re-watch the raw footage from practice and you can see just how much more speed he was carrying through some sections.
