 Look at the WHIP!!!

 It almost looks as if the seat went a little too far up

 Yeah whipping would be much harder with the seat that high!

 Worst pod in a while, no offense to photographer or rider, just not my cup of tea

 I think its cool AND I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

 The truth of the matter is this guy has better style than half the people on this site. The fact that he is doing this whip on a full XC race bike only solidifies that. All praise Nino Schurter, king of the XC whip!

 you asshole are single minded, Pinkbike isn't only for people riding dj and downhill bikes, XC is the biggest part of the cycling industry, it is just not advertised as much as events like Rampage and FMB so shut-up

 XC is hardcore, everyone just mixes up XC and going for a ride in the park, it's not the same Wink
  • + 11
 and people calling jeffrupert an a$$hole and douche, even bringing his mom into it, for not liking a picture, simply stating his opinion in a respectful way. come on guys. should people not say anything if they don't like a picture for risk of being flamed? if someone puts a picture on the internet for people to see, they are inviting criticism as well as praise.

 mrgonzo. You're on pinkbike. Home of the douchebags. There's a reason we have the reputation we do.

 Not my cup of tea either, in fact Ill take a Dr Pepper cuz I dont like tea at all. But its still a sick picture. Much respect to all the disciplines out there.
  • + 11
 All he said was he didn't like the picture. He said nothing against XC or XC riders, so I don't get where all this childish name-calling and angry comments are coming from.

 one realizes of course many pro DH'ers competed in XC before pursuing DH as a career

 @bikeracer you just did that because you knew that all the Other People who have got no own opinion would give you a prop.only because he doesnt like the Picture hes Not a douche,you just made you to a Mega douche with that comment

 haha saying i dont a like picture isnt being douche, if i wanted to be a douche id say it was the most disgusting picture iv ever seen, which i did not say, i have an appreciation for every aspect of cycling, i was just stating it doesnt compare to other pictures that have gotten pod in the last little while. In my opinion any one who brings someone elses mom into an arguement over the internet is a douche.

 jeffrupert, this bloke can probably whip better than you...
  • + 2
 just because its an XCer doing a whip, doesnt mean it should get POD. Not the best whip or picture, just trying to keep all the XCers happy
  • + 6
 I think we are all just a little edgy because we haven't got our fix of rampage yet.
  • + 2
 JaseZ, never said anything about my riding compared to his, im sure hes a pretty solid rider, not trying to argue with anybody but the internet these days makes it so hard not to i guess, ryancoonya i think your right

 i didnt mean to offend anyone. and come on. everybody loves 'your mom' jokes. i was just being a jokester. calm down.

 It's also a Monday. A rainy, october monday with no Rampage and no bike fix. Errybody a wee cranky.

 POD, Its a sick shot and to have the energy to throw down like that in the middle of an XC race is just crazy
  • + 17
 Not to mention whipping with 2 foot of seat post hanging out ! fair play !

 I've been there and few XC boys went out to ride park on sunday in similar uniforms and bikes... I haven't seen them railing berns but I saw them jumping and whiping a bit by the upper gondola station. All I can say was that they were better at it than me on a 160 bike.

 I'm looking forward to see what he can do at the final round of the EWS in Finale Ligure lh6.googleusercontent.com/-4RJ6459pSfY/UkQBrJst03I/AAAAAAAAHa0/auraoq5Kmk8/w426-h757/finale.png

 Woah, you of all people, saying that about a guy with a full XC setup and in lycra?! Wink

 To throw that whip in the middle of a world cup xc race with a seatpost that high? Thats risky. Ask Travis Pastrana about tricking at races AND he's doing it in the middle of race instead of conserving energy...Thats my kind of guy.

 On bona-fide tubulars as well.

 Whip it Good! No one noticed Rob Warner in the flannel shirt, cap and N.W.A glasses in far right corner mouthing off to an invisible microphone????

 that is not a whip.
  • + 2
 true it's like a half x up slight tilt of the bike and weird body turn. still cool to see it happen in a race.

 Nino is for sure a better rider than 99% in here!!!!
  • + 0
 Thank you, exactly, not a whip. None of the whips I've seen have been done without bending the knees and getting the body out of plane with the frame. Further, you initiate the whip with the angling of the bike away from vertical upon takeoff. None of that happening in this pic.

 I bet if he had a short travel full sus, poc helmet, branded riding gear and a back pack people wouldn't be slagging it off.

 Yup...and I bet he would be faster than 90% of PB commenters down any mountain.

 Props to the rider for bike control and fitness, but as for POD, i think not. Basic rule of thirds used in the photo, no distinct use of color and horrible cropping what with hands and faces sheered off at the edges. The Foreground is just a blur of dirt offering no dynamic to the photo. As a result. there is nothing about this photo that really grabs our attention other than what the rider has to offer. Getting this photo just took being in the right place at the right time. Im sure Vanja could do better.

 If every pod followed those rules it would be so boring...
