 Love the low key shade from Rogatkin.

"I lost this two years ago in manuals and nose manuals. I've had two years to learn those tricks and I didn't. I've just been doing twisters that whole time."

I am kind of surprised at the lack of bike handling skills that Rogatkin has, though. I guess that's because he spends most of his time on jumps and airbags and such instead of riding trail.

 Good point, his fluidity on the bike isn't as smooth as the others, still a real good vid

 @lehott: I remember people talking about that in some trail ride video he did at Finale Ligure as well. Don't get me wrong, he rides smoother than me by far, but trail riding clearly isn't his strength.

Some interview I remember was saying something similar about trials riders. That because of the emphasis of power and stiffness on the nine required for trials, they aren't particularly fluid trail riders. Fabio Wibmer is pretty danged smooth though.

 This was highly entertaining! Love that rogatkin got knocked out by a relatively simple trick. Nose manuals and crankflips are his Achilles....who’d a thunk it!

 Anyone know what bike is DJ Brandt riding?

Obviously a Commencal Meta but 27.5 or 29?

Love the Meta but want 27.5.... looks like Commencal have gone 29er for the Meta this year.

 The audio is quite annoying here! I'm constantly turning my volume up and down.

 I can't tell if they call Ethan e-boy because his name starts with an E, or because he's an e-boy

 What you boys found was Blarina brevicauda - the short-tailed shrew. Used to do research on them up that way. Cool find!
