 @nyhc00: Thanks for taking me down a cultural rabbit hole!

Wiki: Gopniks are often seen squatting in groups "in court" (на корта́х) or "doing the crab" (на крабе) outside blocks of flats or schools with their heels on the ground.[7][8] It is described as a learned behavior attributed to Russian prison culture to avoid sitting on the cold ground.[8]

Gopniks are often seen wearing Adidas or Puma tracksuits (mostly Adidas), which were popularised by the 1980 Moscow Olympics Soviet team.[9] Sunflower seeds (colloquially semki (семки) or semechki (семечки)) are habitually eaten by gopniks, especially in Ukraine and Russia. Gopniks can also be seen wearing flat caps and Adidas backpacks.

Gopniks are often associated with cheap alcohol, such as low-quality vodka and light beer, cheap cigarettes, low-end mobile devices, and sometimes even firearms. They also utilize common Russian profanities and often behave rudely. Gopniks often drive Lada Classics or older BMWs as their primary means of transport.

 Where can I get some of Brendog’s chavved out Adidas trousers from?
It would be a good economy because I could use them for football training on Saturdays and mountain biking in Sundays without feeling badly dressed at either.

 Looks like TLD pants with an ADIDAS branding on it. Check the TLD logo just below his knee.

 That stuff has been over here in the UK for about a year - do you not get it?
  • 1 0
 Yup, just available at most bike shops or MX shop who sell TLD. Just give it a try on google.

 Already tried Descenders on Steam or Xbox?

 @kevinduro: Nope, but I do have an Xbox so perhaps I will give it a go. I assume if I play the game I will soon be able to ride like the Bren Gun?

 ... that’s like watching a video game. So big it (almost) can’t be real. Brendog just makes it look so smooth too.

 Me watching the video: looks kinda easy, he almost doesn‘t move at all...
Me at my home spot: casing 10ft double again... ????

 How much bigger, before you could use a parachute for bad landings ?

 In all his interviews he's so mellow but when it comes time to ride just an absolute beast. Love it.

 WTF happened to the chase rider at 1:10? Last seen orbiting Mars?!

 Drone driver was following the ride line so well I was genuinely startled then. I was like, “oh he deed”

 Knowing that gopro makes everything less steep and smaller, these jumps are insane and sooooo over my limits. Actually, they are stratospheric over my limit.

 Loved it! I'm out there struggling to hang to the bike with 3 feet of air and he's one hand landing coming in from Lunar levels. Good stuff.

 Brendog can franchise his name and image, ala Tony Hawk, for future mtb vidoe games

 Brengog is the man. Freakin awesome video. All the pinkbike trolls who bashed Brendog for getting into Rampage... get back below your rock.

 Take: High speed, high precision drone pilots are going to take mountain bike film making to the next level in the next few years.

 Brendan clearly didnt read the 'experts' comments on the Tahnee article, surely he should be at home tucked up in bed until his next race?

 so much steeze with that one handed dog pisser

 Yeah Brendawg, sending it so Pro like always. These jumps lines were more out of this world than hardline, and that was sick.

 I don't know where they are, but that dirt looks so good. Wonder if it's imported or native.
  • 2 0
 South Africa...
  • 2 0
 Native although they moved some of the redder clay from a different part of the property into some of the jumps so they’d hold up better than the yellow/gray sandy soil. Check out Sam’s build updates from the last couple weeks.

 tricks and top racer . he has it all , very rare

 I think freestyle mtb is more gnarly than freestyle motocross now. Minimal protective gear.
  • 1 0
 I reckon there's nothing that can protect you better than a good roll. If you're casing maybe an exoskeleton would help, but that's not invented yet. See Sam's impact last year breaking his hand - I don't know any protective gear to save him at this point.
