 Fairclough is rad, that narration was awesome.
  • + 24
 He is by far the coolest guy on two wheels! Good luck today Brendog!
  • + 22
 hahaha dont need the sneaky french taking his lines.
  • + 21
 "A bit of a jump there" - Duuuude, that`s huge!

 It was so sad to not see him at World Champs. I guess the Brits are just wayyy to strong right now with so many amazing riders who cant all make it.
  • + 5
 and you would think with a 4th place at world champs last year would earn him a spot
  • + 5
 Brendan was at Worlds but he was reserve rider so if anyone was injured, he would have taken their place. He was a reserve because he had a broken thumb and missed a lot of World Cups.

 To cool for pedaling today!

 He is calm and composed on the track I'm glad he let the other rider know he was going to pass, unlike Brian lopes At the jeep air downhill preview. I am not down talking Brian he is a real shredder but c'mon..common cortousy.

 I actually found it humorous. Brian Lopes can blast by me any day!
  • + 2
 Unfortunately, I have heard from a couple people that met B-lopes that he's an A-hole. Too bad, I respect the guy, but a little less now.
  • + 2
 I think its safest to just blow past. People sometimes freeze in the middle of the track or cut in front of you. Not saying anything keeps people acting predictable. I'll usually call out the side i want to pass on.
  • + 1
 Yes for sure I have to agree with you. When I'm passing I will call out "on your left" or "on your right" and when the person in front of me moves clearly out of my way I will pass when the time is right. Like I previously said common courtesy.

 That was the best POV course preview and narration I've seen.
  • + 10
 Best course run ever! He even said "what up!" in the middle of explaining the course, what a legend!
  • + 3
 when he is pedaling, he stills talking...if I do the same, I probably dead of asphyxia !
The Gopro angle in the "full speed" berms is awesome !
If you want to see an amateur riding the same track, this is my friens 3 weeks ago : www.pinkbike.com/video/273432 (the vidéo start at the end of the pedaling section !)
