 Nino does with an XC bike what most of us can’t even do with an enduro bike!

 I’ve ridden those trails a lot and he is going poes fast! Really puts the gap of talent and skill into perspective. Chops to nino, would love to know what Tyres he was on. That is the run home from the shuttle / DH / enduro trails and I’m usually on a beefy 2.6 eliminator or DHF and hoping they hold in on the moon dust up there. Last time I had a minion SS on the back and was drifting like it was the fast n the furious!

 Man I would LOVE to see how Nino would do at an EWS type race. He has so much power, and his bike handling skills are bonkers.

 In case you were wondering whether top XC racers are better than you at everything, now you have an answer.

 What's more impressive is that Neethling probably has far more experience on these trails than Schurter. Schurter likely wasn't riding blind, but these aren't his home trails. You'll also notice this was the downhill section - wait until Nino puts down the gas for the climb.

 And who said XC is just for washed up roadies?

I could be wrong but perhaps it has been better off going the other direction......Cadel, Ryder, Michael (excrpt for he doping)

 I used to train with an xc rider who raced internationally and she would regularly beat quick people on the downhills. It was in a high school age riding squad in the early-mid 2000s, but she was still quick none the less.

 This is why XC still holds most of the market in countries where cycling is in the top 3 sports.

 Worried that a Lion was gonna jump out and grab one of those dudes. Fun looking flow trail.
