 Great site! The last time someone posted that it got deleted. Probably because it's not such a great site.

 I'm listening to Greg but I'm watching Tippie - he's a very upbeat and happy guy. He's an instant cure for depression.

 I don't think he cheated. He won it and was awesome!

 I couldn't say if he cheated or didn't (I wasn't there). But I hate the fact that Pinkbike censors these pages. What are they afraid of? Let people check out the site if they choose and make up their own minds.

It's better than reading 15 different renditions of "so sick."
