 Lawks a lard arse my bottom's on fire.... Someone, anyone fetch me a drink.... You mean that perennial underachiever and all round scamp the Brendog has maybe, just maybe seen the light at the end of the tunnel and actually put a race run together!!! Well Done Sir, next Noreay please. Oh, and if you see Ben Reid... give him a bit of whatever you've been drinking!

 Hilarious comment...Bren-Dawg is on form and I expect to see him near the top of the podium at the next World Cup race, if not on top. You heard it here first. Not making the World's team was the best thing for him, now he has a little fire in the belly. Reid needs to quit wearing himself out in practice or hit the gym this winter.

 I love the trails in Chatel, and it's fantastic to see more and more events being held there. However, why is it that the videos of these events always seem to be really low quality? Grainy footage and pretty poor music choices etc...

 What happened to Spagnolo? On the film it says he won and Fairclough 2nd?

 I must admit, I'm a big fan of Matt Beer. I really wish a factory would sponsor him he deserves it. He works hard all winter so that he paticipates where and when he can during the DH season. Nice race Matt.

 Yes! He is the beast from the east. I vote that Devinci picks him up and he and Stevie can kill it.

 These redbull videos are always good, but why are they so laggy!

 Chatel and Morzine have to be some of the best, least known bike parks. Easily on par with Whistler. So sick in that area....maybe we should keep it quiet...

 Least known? Maybe in america or canada, but in europe its the most known after whistler.
