Video: Connor Fearon Riding Maribor's Secret Loamers

Aug 21, 2021
by Connor Fearon  

With a week off between Maribor world cup and Val Di Sole world champs the Kona Factory Team stuck around in Maribor. We found some time in-between training to take the trusty dad-cam down for a run of some off-piste goodness!

 Conner's In The Know segment from ages ago is still one of the best shredits of all time IMO. In fact I'm going to watch it again. Right know in honor of this shredit.

 You can’t refer to anything as “loamer” if it’s not immediately followed by bwa bwa bwa bwaaaaaaaaa!!!

 arghh, it makes me shake my head. I am so past it not being down with these mtb slang terms, I still think a few "chillers" are some cold beer, rather than false modesty stunt pulling

 Ha ha, yes we had this discussion last time when loam came up. ROBOT is right.

 @Sethimus: My bad. I assumed “humid” was an autocorrect for “humus.” If it wasn’t a typo, though, I don’t know what “loam is supposed to be humid” means. Pretty sure it’s the same shit whether it’s wet or dry

 @TEAM-ROBOT: do you even shred bro? Loam needs to be humid for it to be loam to a MTBer.

 @TEAM-ROBOT: loam refers to a sepcific mix of particle sizes in the soil, nothing to do with its moisture content

 Make flat pedals great again - shame no one's consistently putting flats on the DH podium after Hill - would love to see Fearon up on the box again - is it just me or does every flat pedal DH rider ooze style?

 there's a chasm between style and podium speed. you cannot have both.

 @gmcc: love ratboy but that was 7 years ago. When was the last flat pedal podium at World Cup/Champs level?

 Agree that very good flat pedal riders ooze style but the amount of talent to get there is much higher than clips. Also as a converted flat pedal rider I would like that to see some flat pedal riders on the box but I think the level is too high now at WC races and clips just offer too many advantages, a major one being able to charge through chunk without worry of feet coming off. If I race again and CARE how well I finish I'll probably put flats on a couple weeks prior to race and then race with them. Advantage is significant IMO.

 @heatproofgenie: most pros agree that clipless pedals are faster than flats.

 @gramboh: Connor Fearon came 4th in Les Gets literally a few weeks ago.

That's a WCDH podium.

 @Brasher: Thanks, I follow WCDH pretty close and totally blanked on Fearon on the podium at Les Gets despite watching his run. He flies under the radar despite crazy skill and talent, great to see.

Where the hell did “mobbin” come from and what does it mean?

 'Mobbing, as a sociological term, means bullying of an individual by a group, in any context, such as a family, peer group, school, workplace, neighborhood, community, or online. When it occurs as physical and emotional abuse in the workplace, such as "ganging up" by co-workers, subordinates or superiors, to force someone out of the workplace through rumor, innuendo, intimidation, humiliation, discrediting, and isolation, it is also referred to as malicious, nonsexual, non-racial/racial, general harassment.'

 To me it means video may include white boys throwing pretend gang signs

 i've always used "mobbin" as "going hella fast" but i have no idea where that comes from.
  • 8 0
 I find Urban Dictionary provides the most accurate definition in this case. Mobbin 1. goin somewhere with a group 2. havin hella folks in the cut 3. the homies 4. goin hella fast 1. yo max, we're mobbin to mickey d's. mishin on foot 2. ay we mobbin in this bitch 3. wats good mobbin 4. i mobbin on the interstate

 @Justinbloomington, @ haji1974: in this instance it most closely comes from off-road motor sports, particularly trophy trucks… mobbing in this sense refers to driving through gnarly terrain at very high speed, with some risk. E.g. “mobbing through huge desert whoops at 120mph”.

 From the Bay Area - mobbin’ means rolling with your crew in a car preferably some old skool American muscle breaking the speed limit and ducking the law. In regards to this it just means staying off the brakes riding smooth and fast. Faster than you.
