 Looking at how Commencal have changed over the last few years, I predict huge improvements for GT in the future.

 I thought he would say the Fury is much more lighter than the Supreme Big Grin

 Interesting to see he's ditched the neck brace and gone for the big moto helmet despite his brothers injury...

 He shreds that corner so hard at 1:37!

 Solid vid, I liked that it was narrated throughout. Nice change of pace and you get to hear Gee's insight, even if it is mostly GT advertising. And it featured my home trails (WOOOOOT Telonix! SoCal!). Larock is like the pizza guy, delivers every time.

 If you put Lana del rey so why you didnt put this:

 Wow i was just mind fucked .. Partly cause i live right around the corner from these trails and partly cause gee just shredded telonics with absolutle flow and some prime riding... Oh myy gee
  • + 2
 Look at what he does at 2:03. That's a good 40 feet off a 2 foot rock
[Reply]

 I wish it didnt look like he just hopped off a dirtbike with the new gear... MTB has its own style and their new gear doesnt fit it. Hopefully they come out with some gear with more of a MTB feel to it.
  • - 1
 Don't know what your on about, how would you make his gear look more MTB?

 Looks to be at home on that thing. Should be a good season, just don't like the moto style helmets, they look faar too bulky, but maybe he feels he needs that extra protection with the speeds these guys are hitting nowadays, guess it's his call.
[Reply]

 all I could think about through the entire video was Lana Del Rey's lips.....
[Reply]
  • + 5
 2:02.....good lord, the speed and flow needed to jump that far is insane

 he looks really awkward and body position is really different when he is riding this gt
  • + 4
 He looks awkward? He looks way more stylish on that GT than he did on the Commy, a lot more relaxed. I guess we won't really be able to tell till he is racing a world cup.
