BRUNI’s reaction when Gwin crashes. Priceless
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:20)
Reminds me of Windows Internet Explorer
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:25)
» Screen freeze of that podium moment:
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:42)
: The difference is Gwin hardly ever crashes and Internet Explorer crashes all the time
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:56)
: that should make superbruni at least flinch!!

What about the time when Danny Hart was on the hot seat, someone crashed and he just had a creepy smile on his face. I think it was from a few seasons ago.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 21:40)
He couldn't jump of happiness as he was filmed...
(Jun 6, 2018 at 2:34)
His congratulations to Amaury later look really genuine though.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 4:11)
Loic was just disappointed. He'd been teaching Aaron all day how to ride a bike and the guy still doesn't seem to get it. He was like "Dude, you're never going to be a world champ this way."
His words, not mine. I think Aaron does have potential.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:49)
I was kind of the same. I had this feeling that he was pushing just a bit too hard in the woods. I was almost expecting something to go wrong.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:31)
Rachel snapped the chain, then crashed, and still ended up third!!
(Jun 5, 2018 at 15:29)
...got struck by a lightning, hit by a car, impaled...still podium. Rachel is insane! My friends spoke to her at BPW some weeks ago, she's super cool in person they say.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:57)
: probably wearing an iron man suit under those endura skinsuits!!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 0:29)
that was bloody amazing!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 2:32)
aka Bullet Tooth Rachel
(Jun 6, 2018 at 4:58)
: You can call her Susan if it makes you happy.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:06)
Probably the best produced Highlight from them.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:26)
Gwin...we don't like crashing....not going to do that any more.....what an animal...takes a beating and gets up grinning.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:46)
That Men's podium makes me so happy! it's rare to see a podium where everyone is happy for each other!
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:15)
Nice to see different faces on the podium.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:20)
Loic didn't even blink when gwin crashed. Vooodoooooo hahahaha
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:30)
Haha cold as ice
(Jun 7, 2018 at 3:25)
The fans aren't the only ones who are bored of the Gwinner's constant Gwinning. The monopolies commission needs to have a word with him about his behaviour at races. I am convinced they have a case against him.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:45)
Loic could walk away from a explosion without blinking or looking back
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:57)
that's were superbruni comes from, like when in movies they walk away from explosions without even flinching
(Jun 5, 2018 at 21:44)
Cool guys don't look at explosions!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 4:13)
Was Martin Maes wearing a Belgian flag shirt because he has won the national championships or is it because he doesn't have any UCI points but he's riding for the national cycling federation?
(Jun 6, 2018 at 7:46)
If he didn't win it, there's a problem somewhere.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 9:47)
: Well, I don't know if he even competed in their nationals.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:20)
: Thinking of it, he probably didn't. He hadn't ridden a DH bike in two years, has he? So if he won the nationals, it must have been on a different (non-DH) bike. More likely, he's riding for the national cycling federation. Otherwise he would probably have been riding in a GT jersey with a band or different sleeve.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 14:35)
: Seriously, why wouldn't he have a go though? Can't hurt, especially knowing he'll smash everyone. Maybe that's not such an incentive. I could beat my 4 year old in a fist fight, doesn't mean I'm gonna do it...
(Jun 6, 2018 at 21:21)
: Yeah, but I thought I read somewhere that until preparing for Ft Bill, he hadn't ridden a DH bike in two years. So either he has ridden the Belgian nationals on his enduro bike, or not at all. Could be that he has (Sam Hill style) indeed. But if it were proper DH championships, I doubt he has ridden it on his enduro bike, won it and it wouldn't have had much publicity.
Silly thing is, I'm still guessing here. Suppose I should be able to look it up too. I'm too lazy to look things up. Guesswork is hard enough.
(Jun 7, 2018 at 14:41)
There are belgian enduro championships. He only races in those judging from the DH results.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 5:01)
What is the 'Song' in the highlight WC video? Great video BTW, gets me fired up!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 8:09)
I want to know too!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:48)
: Stop The Train (Song) from AWOLNATION
(Jun 6, 2018 at 11:35)
(Jun 6, 2018 at 7:03)
Anyone hear what Pierron said at the end? Doesn't sound like he likes his bike much, said something like the bike is really hard for him but works well for the team, anyone else hear it that way?
(Jun 6, 2018 at 12:39)
yah I heard that the same way. even if I hated the bike I was riding, if I got a win on it i'd probably not say anything bad about it, call me superstitious?
(Jun 6, 2018 at 12:55)
Loves the bikes dislikes the track. Had to work hard to feel comfortable here.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:52)
I'm curious when the Syndicate will finally give up on that assegai tire
(Jun 5, 2018 at 17:02)
Epic video ! It was dope to watch ... great edit too!
(Jun 6, 2018 at 12:14)
Burn in hell, Redbull media player...
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:09)
Any good explanations of the points system? How does one crash on the second race and still be at the top?
(Jun 5, 2018 at 13:16)
Qualifying points plus a few others at the top like Luca Shaw had flats, mechanicals, etc.
(Jun 5, 2018 at 16:58)
(Jun 5, 2018 at 21:47)
None of the guys who were right behind Gwin (following round 1) could fully capitalize on his crash this race - 2nd in points was Luca (who flatted), 3rd in points was Dean (who didn't race), 4th in points was Blenky (came in 9th)... so yeah, when the results all add up, no one scored really big in both round 1+2 to form a significant overall lead. The biggest winners this time were Pierron, Vergier and Brosnan who all moved up to be level pegging with Gwin. Keeps it exciting!
(Jun 5, 2018 at 15:23)
Really awesome to see fresh faces on the podium.
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jun 6, 2018 at 4:27)
Why did that guy slap Tahnee on the bum.. she just won one of the toughest DH races - would it happen to a guy? (bromance exceptions ofc). Including that strange rear hug - It didn't look like a mutual celebration but a physical domination.
Am I missing something here?
(Jun 6, 2018 at 5:42)
Nope. And how about when it said she finally got what she desired. Seems like sexual wording
(Jun 6, 2018 at 5:43)
That’s her dad and also her team manager....think he was quite excited and proud. I’d view it as a slap on the thigh and not the bum....
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:14)
It was her dad lol
(Jun 6, 2018 at 10:39)
pretty sure you're missing everything. How about you look for problems elsewhere.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 12:57)
your last question is your answer ;-)
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:03)
gwin has only crashed 2 times in his life
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:10)
Fort William 2017
Fort William 2018
That’s already 4
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:20)
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:37)
: The video at the top of this page
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:47)
: I think he also crashed in Lourdes last year. At least I think it was Lourdes...
Update: found a vid:
(Jun 5, 2018 at 14:52)
Gwin has never crashed. Ask Martin Whiteley.
(Jun 6, 2018 at 8:13)
: and Andorra at worlds.
