 This video really has to be the best advertising for dt-swiss, GT and Marzocchi

 I think it's about time the industry sends everything to Brage for real world strength testing.
Brage is the G.O.A.T. of r&d

 @danstonQ: No point in advertising Michelin if you can't buy them anywhere for months, for such a big tyre company you would think they wouldn't have stock issues.

 @tonit91: Late last year, Michelin shut down a bunch of plants temporarily due to something to do with fear of gas cutoff from Russia. I don't fully understand what went down, you can go Google around, but some trickle down effects of the current Russia/Ukraine war affected automotive and bike tire manufacturing entirely, not just limited to Michelin.

 @krau: The main problem is globalization. As a tyre world leader, Michelin has factories everywhere, and in a recent interview Florent Menegaux, Michelin's boss, said that the situation had never been so critical: the logistic is chaotic due lacks of raw materials, lacks of transports, lacks of political and social stabilities in several countries (Sri Lanka for instance)... he said that Michelin never saw such a mess since WWII.
In other words: they do what they can :-)

 Those helmet cam POV shots are scary! He needs to do a full compilation of all the POV shots. His speed looks so insane on them; even more than the pan shots

 Especially glad to see more than once the huge send attempts/successes during the last 2 minutes. That transfer really was the icing on the cake for this edit, and makes it's longevity go way past video of the year. Super impressive.

 I'm just glad to see him riding at all after that humongous crash he had a while back. He's one tough viking. His old man looks pretty badass too.

 Brage is the Aebleskiver of MTB. Traditionally made in dented armour after battle (Rampage?), they are both pretty fargin’ awesome.

 I appreciate a good Aebleskiver comment - not enough of them around. Now I'm hungry and need to pick up some Gløgg.
