 I'll see your comment and raise you; if you ever ride a lady like the riding in this video, you'll be the one doing the shooting.

Source; me.... loose, rocky sluts RULE!

 But what did he have for breakfast? And how did he put his gear on at his house before he rode..?

Oh wait... I could care less about that crap.
Ride and break stuff!

 His landings are gentle. I'd be surprised if he bends more than three rims a year, if that?

 This vid is a good example of why downhill bikes are still relevant. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT ENDURO!
  • 50 6
 why, who said dh bikes are not relevant?
  • 38 5
 I've seen some people say things like "who even rides DH bikes anymore", not to mention the stories of people abandoning their 200mm steeds in favour of 160mm do-it-alls.
  • 70 2
 as capable as the new breed of Enduro/all mountain rigs are, nothing is as fun as smashing out laps on the dh bike.
  • 14 3
 it will all depend on the palces you live and ride, if you have big mountains or trail's with lift access ,or by road and with what ease you arrange shutle runs and if you can have both tipe of bikes, you won't believe the fun it is to ride a smaller travel bike on flowy trail's, or even tougher ones, had a DH race 2 week's ago and didn't have ridden the DH bike for a while and it was like a monster truck , could get more speed than what i did before because i got used to ride fast with less travel, and now i feel like my ridding skills have evolved
  • 4 1
 I still think DH rigs are relevant as I tend to pussy out some big stuff 'cause of my 140mm bandit.... Hope I run out of excuses when on a DH rig ; ).
  • 16 1
 I hope the guy that commented that watching short travel bikes on gnarly trails is better than dh bikes because dh bikes are boring has watched this. This will put him back in his hole. Holy moly thus was sick. From start to finish I was shocked. Imagine a full video like this of all the top 20 guys in their favorite location. Itd be 40minutes of wtf??!!
  • 14 0
 most people were using downhill bikes for what we now call enduro, only the few were really riding to DH's potential ie this video thats why people like to think DH bikes 'arent relevent' anymore
  • 4 1
 @Zimmer68 dunno who those people are; maybe MTB theorists or marketing people. The truth is that when you want to ride the rough stuff with max fun and max safety then a big bike is the only way to go.
  • 11 0
 Right on PeteNoble13, people gettin all butt hurt when I say DH videos are a little boring. Hardly using the full potential of the bikes prowess. This is a perfect example of utilizing a DH's bike full potential. I swear it looks like he is riding a MX bike.

 I just got done riding my jedi on a slopestyle course the other day, id love for some endure hippie to tell me it isn't useful anymore hahahaha! its always about how you ride, not what you ride!
  • 1 0
 This is what I was thinking the entire video. I adore the trailbikes I ride, but not for a minute do I think they are a replacement for a big rig. Just like I can tear down a trail that much faster on a 6 incher compared to an xc bike, the same goes for an 8 incher compared to the 6.

Honestly most people are likely not pushing it hard enough to notice the limitations. I know plenty of people on this site certainly do, but consider that even if half the push it enough to notice, we still have 50 percent of the market who do not. That, and I'd wager that a lot of people's local dh rides aren't gnarly and/or steep enough to warrant a big bike.

 He rides like he is floating on his bike. Seems like the hardest the tires gets used is when he pushes them through berms, so gracefully. His landings look so controlled. Stay light and have good core strength to move the bike around.

George to win a WC this year maybe even do what ratty did last year, hes definitley gone to a new level yet in control, cant wait to see it!
  • 1 1
 I think that Brannigan will have a great result at the Lourdes world cup coming up in less than three weeks time. One of the last times that there was a brand new venue that no one had raced before was Hafjell World Cup in 2012. George placed 2nd behind only Stevie Smith. Considering that Lourdes is a brand new stop to the world cup circuit and seeing the level of riding he is doing currently, I would predict George Brannigan to have a great result coming very soon!
