 Ah, Pole Stamina, I had a problem with that once...

 @Smallbright: When Spank introduced the vibrocore it really helped with the arm pump too.

 No matter who you are, you ain’t keeping up with Leigh around there, no chance.

 When people say they need a 180mm 29er this is exactly the kind of trail I imagine them riding.

 I watched some clips of this spot, thought "didn't look too bad, I'll have a go" ; it's crazy steep in the woods and rutted to hell where the felling has taken all the protective cover. Needless to say, I headed home bruised and humiliated! I'll stick to Zig Zag, that's my limit ????

 This video was like shooting squirrels with a grenade launcher. Seems that trail would be more fun and maybe even faster on a hardtail, did not look like 180mm 29er land yacht territory to me...

 That’s because he’s a smooth rider who makes stuff look easy. Those tracks are rougher and steeper than they look.

 Lovely job, really enjoyed watching that! That's exact how I'm going to ride next time I'm up there! Ha ha, I wish!

 Truth be told, that trail would have been way more fun on a lightweight downcountry bike

 Steeper than it looks, he also dumbs any trail down cos he's so freakin good.

 That thing looks like it's on rails. Need AF to try one.

 Was it just me or did he look really stretched out on that bike? Like too stretched out

 Well I'm sure he has no idea what he's doing. You should get in touch with him and let him know.

 @LeoTProductions: It looked like he knew exactly what he was doing in the video. Body position just looked unusual to me.

 @msalcher: Fair enough. Just taking the piss

 He did look stretched out, but hey this guy is seriously pinned! So it's working for him.
It'll like when you watch Olympic gymnasts make moves look easy. Have you ever tried any of that stuff? Deceptively difficult!
