 @conoat: How are we supposed to take Max serious without him having entered a Crankworx event, let alone having won one, like Hamilton?

 I’m getting sick of people with the last name Hamilton winning tons of events in sports where you go stupid fast.

 The all New Zealand ultra-local commentary was awesome. Nicholai Rogatkin did a great job commenting for S&S, but so did Ed Masters for DH, especially with how much he knew about everyone. And it was a good thing too after the rain sucked most of the drama out of the proceedings that they could tell stories about how Louis Hamilton's cop father once chased Steve Peat down for an autograph.

 Louis is such a wholesome dude. Gives back to the community so much. A well deserved if not surprising win!

 Considering his busy schedule, where does he find the time to give back?

 Cool to see an athlete who battles AGAINST Red Bull as hard as Hamilton does trying his hand at MTB.

 Big shouts to Remy casually going top 10 and edging past dudes like Blenky. So sick but was kinda hoping for a chainless run in cut off shorts Big Grin

 Remy is such a sick rider. He's got a pile of solid dh finishes. Would love to see him do some more racing.

 Good job Kailani Hines. Where is Mr. Kailani though? DNF?

And what is Mikey doing down there? Shouldn't he be in the lab working to save us all, not galivanting around in his UndeRoos?
