 His body language is so "calm" , while drifting, as if he rides the easiest trail...
  • 11 1
 Yup, no matter what track he's riding, he's in the same body position...

FYI - I am supposed to be in Greece right now on holiday Frown

 @RadBartTaylor: I wish I could tell you that the weather is terrible, but it is not. Everybody is terrified with the "new life", but we did it great (if you read the news) and hope to go back to normal life reaaly soon.

 @RadBartTaylor: I've watched Sam riding for a few decades now and you've pinpointed IMO why he's an all time great. There are other amazing riders, but nobody makes it look as easy as Sam does. His riding style and body positioning mirror his persona too.

 GREAT. And I like that for this movie they/he chose cheaper alu frame. Great that they market also cheaper products from their offer.

 How do the bird sounds stay the same in the slow-mo portions? Are they outside the space-time continuum?
  • 9 0
 They actually sang faster and a couple of octaves higher in those parts.

 I've noticed that his fork seems to behave differently than other pros in videos as well, it seems like it's softer and goes through the travel more than other riders

 1:43 he bottoms in slow mo just exiting a berm. Probably gives more traction in slow speed stuff. Seems terrifying for chunk but maybe he just jumps over everything lol. I wonder if there's a bike check out there that lists his pressures/tokens.

 HE says in previous interviews that he runs his fork softer and slower than most of the pros. Old school.

 Now that's a edit, infinitely better than the trail hooligan video from last year.

 Really educational to watch Sam's eyes in this video. You can see him looking close while in the air to spot a landing. But then before landing, his eyes move back up to look further down the trail. I need to work on that.

 My Mega290 doesn't go that fast. Think it must be broken. Even had the Sam Hill bars on it. It is a few years old though, maybe they made them faster now.

 Still blows my mind (even though I know the science behind it) how parts of California and Australia look EXACTLY alike in foliage, and geology. If you didn't tell me this was in AUS I'd swear it'd be in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada's in CA.

 And the fact you imported our trees just adds to it, but yes I have to say outstide the city Southern Califronia does feel quite a lot like home Smile

 @Dallasdownunder: Oh I'm talking about more than just the eucalyptus. Look up Pioneer Trail in Nevada City and it looks exactly like this.

 @Dallasdownunder: I spend a lot of time riding in an imported Eucalyptus forest. It’s really a unique riding environment that I have leaned to love.

 After riding in the Perth hills I know why he uses bark busters there is some crazy aggressive scrub some sort of Acacia

 Yeah I thought they were silly until I rode in the southwest US, like Arizona, El Paso, that kind of stuff-lots of spiny plants that want to rip your knuckles apart make some handguards appealing.
