He just got lucky.

Now that all the good people are back from the olympics he will just be forgotten about.

Quite alot yes. like when he hit the gate at Bromont and was dead last until the 1st and 2nd place crashed out right at the end giving him 2nd and a place in the final.

He is an awesome rider but there are better riders and better bikes than the sx.

Definately.....like a hardail but without the stings.......pump the shock up for some tracks so it pedals well and vice versa for others so it runs smoother. Am I not right?Big Grin

yes he did get lucky,
being an aussie, noone despises him more then i for winning the world champs after graves got knocked out, but thats racing and if he got to the top he got to the top...
i just think an sx would have a nicer geometry over the fsr xc.
ive ridden both and you may have some trouble manualing on the xc... even a small.
