Danny Hart got his mega whip on this afternoon in timed runs. The kid is a showman and fast as hell. He has a big future ahead of him
  1. Danny Hart got his mega whip on this afternoon... by Fraser Britton - 45,923 views

bigquotesThis is a race shot like any other. Danny was getting crazy sideways over the 2 finishing straight jumps every run, but this was probably the biggest whip of the week. Pair this up with his epic run later that week, and a legend is being born. - Fraser Britton

 Pinning it on an xc bike better than most downhillers... #3 grabs my vote!
  • + 10
 i would guess with saint brakes that is not used much for xc, but i agree sick shot. ,
  • + 10
 Or possibly, he's riding on a non-XC rig with a XC outfit
  • + 29
 Haha, just because someone isn't wearing a full face helmet and rocking out triple clamp forks to any little pinkbike grom they must be an xc rider.
  • + 2
 those boys in wharncliffe know how to ride, they have got the greatest downhill racer in history living in the woods nearby
  • + 4
 fifth should be first or second!!!
  • + 2
 it is an am bike but with a more dh set up Wink 3 gets my vote.... or 1
  • + 1
 I was shooting with the SPS guys (shameless photo plug) about an hour before, as you can see from the photo timestamp. Ruari rocked up midway through a xc ride to say hello. When you only have one bike i guess it has to be your XC and DH bike...
  • + 2
 Who cares what style of bike he's on, thats pure skill
  • + 4
 I said xc because that's what category the picture is under...

 "How does Danny Hart sit down with balls that big!?!!!

No surprise that photo made it into this lineup! All of them excellent.
  • + 1
 That photo is not from his finals run. I think that's why a lot of people are all hyped about it.
  • + 1
 ya but its the exact same whip as the competition one and its off the same jump... the only thing different is that theres no mud.
  • + 4
 The mud is what made that whip, and his whole run for that matter, so legendary.
  • + 1
 still makes a great picture none the less
  • + 1
 I'd be willing to be Danny Hart was whipped-out even when he was being born. Any wagers?
  • + 1
 DANNY STAY ON YA BIKEE!!

 thas right!!!!!!!

 I don't see why "Matt Jones Identiti rider doing a Yannick-style 3..." is an honourable mention when it beat the 2 above it fair and square on view count. Views is views. That's my view anyway.

 It is a really cool shot, that's why it's here on this page, but I thought the other shots were better which is why I put them above it...

 Yeah. I hadn't noticed the POM format had changed from Jason Peters' original feature.
  • + 1
 The spectator next to Danny's back wheel has got the best pink and black checked jeans! At least thats what I thought for a split second till I realised it was the catch netting! LOL
  • + 1
 hart's pic looks just like every other pic of the whips he does on every single jump.....yawn. #3 destroying that berm low down wins in my book.
  • + 2
 All are EXCELLENT, But my favourite is 3. How low is he.He certainly looks like he is having a blast!!.
  • + 1
 #3 isnt xc he has no from shifter. im thinking all mtn. i think the whip is the greatest freaking shot every though. that is a history book pic. gonna be around for ever

 Amazing pictures!

 just a thought, dont include POD's in this list, get to see some of the other amazing photos
  • + 1
 Maybe add one of two pics that aren't pods. Since the best pics make pod, all of these were pods, that would be pretty lame.
  • + 2
 Yes, but we choose from the most viewed photos of the month, and there aren't any photos that make the list that haven't been POD's... So while POD isn't a prerequisite for POM, it pretty much works out that way.
  • + 1
 yea im not complaining just saying it would be cool if there was some way of getting pics that arent POD, but still cheers for doing this Smile
