 The men's has been very consistent up until 2018. Same domination , the women's then started to pick it up since 2010. Been following DH since 2002. It's mad to see how long some have been at the top in the sport. A few questions I have regarding the women's is I don't recall Vanessa Quin or Mellissa Buhl.

 I read the title, and thought "wow. 50 videos in one article on pinkbike? How can I watch 50 videos?"
I scrolled to the comments just to write this, didn't even watch ten of them.


I think this comment is going to be pretty heavily criticized...

 Great collection of vids. Amazing to watch the progression of the sport and the rise of riders through the ranks. Greg's dominance here is something else, this shows why he is the GOAT.
