 I have noticed that he’s got absolutely no chill and possibly no brain ether. Clearly talented but doesn’t know when to back off to avoid carnage. I hope he sorts his head though and smashes is.

 Nooooooooo! It's 2018 and we don't say things like that anymore... especially when Adam has a gf who he is pretty committed to Wink

 @lalalalaura: yeah we hate boobs in 2018
  • + 11
 @Wesleybikes: Everyone loves boobs! Boobs are amazing and I would love to see more boobs in biking. I just happen to think it's 100x cooler to see boobs strapped into sports bras and put on bikes than just being exposed for dudes to sign... But yeah, more boobs would be great! Not really dying to see Adam's boobs though, I bet they are really hairy.

 Most interesting and relatable piece of bike media maybe ever? Can we have a season 2 please where Adam learns to keep up what he's learnt on his own, something for us regular joes to copy Wink

Good luck Adam hope you f###ing smash it!

 Because it's a privateer video, I'll just make my usual post:
1) Best thing on Pinkbike
2) Adam rips! Good luck dude.

 An episode a day leading to the big show.... and now it’s tuesday, almost Wednesday and still no Adam vs EWS?!!!? You’re killing me here!

 I don't follow racing at all but have watched all of these and enjoyed the story more than I thought I would. Part of me thinks that Adam just needs more confidence generally, he just seems a little unsure of himself most of the time. I guess a good race would boost that. Then again he does have some serious balls to be riding at race pace in Fox Enduro kneepads.

 Hey PinkBike, this is a great series. Really shows how cool the bike community is, with all the sponsors helping out with product and athletes! Have really enjoyed this series and hope Adam has a great race tomorrow. We're all rooting for you!

 with DH WC MSA getting all the main media.... There is more coverage from the EWS Whistler from the Privateer than the EWS itself.... Does this still make him a Privateer??
