 an XC POD/VOD is like winning a raffle, it doesnt happen very often, but when it does, you get something pretty cool Smile

 I fucking hate xc, these lycra tossers should get out of the bike world! Don't see the thrill in going up hill. Gay bent load of nob'eads. NO MORE XC VODS, OR EVEN VIDEOS FOR THAT MATTER. SORT IT OUT PINKBIKE.

 SamGooch XC came first and if you don´t like it don´t embarass yourself. Those "gay bent load of nob´eads" can do 80 percent of what you do on short-travel rigs and without body armor. I guess you can´t even climb a short hill without being out of breath...they deserve way more respect than you-people like you are just pathetic

 Its not the first time you've made a stupid pointless narrow minded comment, do us all a favour and refrain from using pinkbike.

 Lets give higher props to guys that do both lol Most of the guys that ride xc in my town suck at riding down parts of the trail lol. I give mad props to xc riders but only ones that can ride fast on flat,uphill, and downhill. Better yet howbaout the enduro riders. And I fucking hate all of the asshole xc and roadies over here think that every DH rider isnt fit. Its 2012 almost 2013. Worldcup and junior riders and even everyday DH racers that are semipro are in good shape and yeah they cross train by rideing xc and road.

 ok i dont hate xc at all, i even ride it when i cant go to the bikepark so im not at all like that samgooch moron, but when i think of a VOD, i imagine some guy motoing down a hill roosting every turn, or a guy flying in a DJ park and i think this video had way too much talking and way too much slow riding in a huge field

 its about the journey and what it takes to complete something like this. I probably wouldn't have watched it if it hadn't made VOD but now im glad it did. what an epic vid

 Beautiful film about a remote stage race! Endurance is the new obstacle. Pure honest human limitation will never cease to present more of a challenge than what we think possible o>o
