I know what you mean. It's not that the riding isn't awesome, but you just get the sense that sometimes the rider/filmers are trying to hard for the camera and it doesn't look natural.

Is that also a steel spring? You would think he'd have a titanium spring no? Unless thats a coated black Ti-spring, which is pretty unusual.

What Tyler Found at Indoors - Interbike 2014
Not really if its good quality, its a pretty specialized product. A quality piece of standard luggage will run you $200. A good quality snowboard travel bag is around $200-250. $450 for the bike bag might be a little high, but not shocking.

But Dave, he doesn't smile on the podium. He's clearly an asshole.

Neko's run was great because of the time he finished with, but I think Gwins tireless run was more impressive. Riding that course chainless really isn't that difficult as there isn't that much pedaling anyway. But getting down a WC track on only a rim and somehow staying upright is ridiculous.

With regards to the stuff up top, you have to keep in mind the variable conditions. It was very dry and fast this week so its easy to carry the speed and make the jumps look small. But if rains and slows things down, then all of a sudden you'd have guys casing everything if they made things to big.

That episode should also have when the Syndicate guys ran on the track with their pants down during Claudio's course preview.

This is exactly what I am talking about when people consider a crash bad luck. You are correct, he did catch that rock in just the wrong way. And you are correct he likely didn't get off his line. But with that said, he crashed, meaning he messed up his run, thus he didn't deserve to win. Staying on your bike is the most important part of winning a race. Just because he messed up the line he wanted to be on, doesn't mean he didn't mess up.

Definitely spot on here. I annoys me when people play the whole "what if" and "luck" game especially when it comes to crashes. Crashes have nothing to do with luck. They mean you messed up. Hill and Ratboy were not were not simply unlucky as people would make it sound. They crashed because they messed up their runs, plain and simple. They did not deserve to win. Everyone points to the splits and says how they were on good runs, but then ignores the reason they were on such good runs, which is that they were pushing very hard. But when you crash, that means you pushed to hard and when you do that, you crash and don't win, nor do you deserve too. Gee on the other hand was not 'lucky', he was great. He was the one who found the proper balance between speed and staying on the bike and for that he deserved the win.

World Champs 2014 - Hafjell - Photo Epic Day 2
Yea it's based on the current UCI overall points rankings, not just the World Cup standings. So the results of all types of other races are also factored in. But as someone above pointed out, the defending champ is slotted #1, then every else behind based on the UCI ranking.
