 yeah but still they get to do what they love for money all day long. Every person on pinkbike pays a lot of money to be able to do this stuff

 Yeah, we pay a lot of money, but I doubt many of us are doing "this" stuff! I am shocked at how little these guys get paid. BMX riders at the pro level make extra zero's on these guys. Motocross guys: forget about it. James Stewart makes like 10 mil a year.

 yeah as materialistic as that is, its true. i think its just mostly publicity because idk about you guys, but no channels i have on tv have shows about downhill or freeride. and no comps, not even the uci wc for dh is on tv. so they are loosing a lot of money on that
