If I'm misunderstanding your contributions to rural Mexico, then please provide an example of how your tour company has improved the quality of life for any of these kids. Do you have an initiative to take local kids on rides? Do you hire locals as guides? If not then you're certainly not introducing mountain biking to the village either, and other than a common language, you have nothing in common with them. Hopefully that taco stand is able to keep up with the inevitable flood of business now that you've let the word out. But really, I don't actually think your business is exploitative, or that it's your responsibility to contribute to their economic growth. I was just making fun of the cliché.

Wouldn't be trip to a developing country without posing with the locals who can barely afford walls for their homes, as if they're the oddity for being amused by your $5000 bike.

Pretty amazing. How does the size of this drop compare to the Oakley sender, or TMac's drops from this year or last year?

Catching Up with Aggy - Red Bull Rampage 2015
There's probably 10 riders out there would be able to look at that mountain blank and build a unique line. Not necessary the highest scoring line, but they build something they can win on. And last year all of these guys were able to build something without stepping on each other's toes. The only bickering came from the guys who had pretty pathetic lines to begin with. Aggy and Andreu, and everyone else possibly put hundreds of man hours into their lines, and the terrain is still burly. If anything that should tell you that there's a big gap in work AND vision between the raw mountain and the completed line, so it's not "just what's naturally there." And there still are new lines. Vink is building one, and it looks like Doerfling is building a new section too, so there's plenty of room for something original, and high scoring. Really, we should all keep in mind that Aggy said he turned people away from the hip. That's one feature and it's toward the bottom of the mountain, so it's a complete red herring to say that Aggy is bogarting the best line.

I guess we can all complain about the lack of competition once we see whether it's actually boring or not.

Some of you need to tone down the hyperbole. Right there Aggy said that he turned people away from riding the hip. He didn't say anything about his entire line. People are telling him there isn't any other options but he said he can see three more. So maybe the issue isn't that it's the only option, rather that they don't want to put in the work to build something of their own. Think about it for half a second and maybe give Aggy a break.

Zink's run in 2013 may not have had much flow, but mainly because he botched the bottom. The top didn't have much flow because it was probably the burliest line of the year. I'm pretty sure he and Straight had the same top section, and I think that's a good part of the reason Straight won. I'm not sure what his line is, but Nicholi won't win this if he rides the ridge. Amazing trick or not, there's no precedence for that.
