 really good photo... POD!

 can't agree more dude. Much people says he sucks and have no skills just a retard hucking a biggest drops. The fact is that those people are retards. If you guys are super skilled and have a magic style, go and try to huck that shit without a crash. Bender is a legend, one of the godfathers of the sport we all love the most. POD no fuckin' doubt. KEEP IT EVIL JOSH!

 amazing photo and the quote is also really good. somebody better call the doctor because this photo is 100% SICK!

 except this drop wasn't success... sick photo though man and i agree totally... people think this guys sucks, but in fact he has more skill than most downhillers... i mean it takes skill to ride down a rocky hill at 40 mph but it takes balls AND skill to ride of a 55ft cliff..just saying

 this was in mbuk a few years ago i have it on my bedroom wall on the other side its got him hucking down a red colour cliff and a quote is about him breaking hhis nose if i remember rightly

 it takes lots of balls and skill to do what sam hill does too,you would shit yer pants going that fast down a narrow trail steep as fuck and jagged rocks everywhere.but oviosuly bender was skilled i mean i dont know how it started he had no skill,hes landed tons of drops most riders wouldnt consider,he crashed on this one,but no one else will do it and if they did they would probably not get hurt they would die! so bender was a test dummy for us and he always was and still is skilled and no one will match his cappability.

 Very well said, not to mention he did flip is like..massive Karpeil. Not even on a conventional dirtjump he did it on more of kicker type jump in the middle of a desert. He also has landed many drops and was a huge progression for our sport.

 I was chucking away all my old MBUKs and thought this deserved a scan and a post.

 i think the no skill thing started because in NWD 3 (i think) he has his own section, when it came to drops there was no one else but bender who would do it, but when he did DH he was very crap, also in NWD 3 when he tries to style off a drop he crashes. i have respect for him because my balls are about the size of peas compared to his gigantuous space hopper sized balls.

 I agree with him having skill, it wasn't his Karpiel he flipped, it was his Banshee... But they're still very heavy bikes and if you haven't seen it you should try and find it

 It's time for a bender POD.

 i think it takes balls to develop skills, cause how else are you gonna learn with out falling? and a 55ft drop to fall doesn't mean your gonna walk away that easily

have some respect, you dont hear anyone else trying stuff like this.

 landing isnt steep enough
  • 5 0
 HIRIG, if you cant bottom a fork that means you cant use a certain amount of travel, and thats not travel at all, so nothing is unbottomable..
  • 1 0
 man! u CAN bottom, if u set it up that way! and u can use all the travel, it may bottom, but not like that hard when it blows, only the last 1-2cm is slowed down by the HSCV High-Speed-Compression-Valve and u can disable this,for bottoming if u like,but thats not brilliant...

 He's retarded for trying that drop in the first place, landing was soft and no way near steep enough. he became even more retarded by attempting it like 6 times, yes he has balls but no brains.

 would Sam hill try that.. would cam mcaul...? While asking this rethorical question with obvious answer, have U considered asking youself a non rethorical question: why wouldn't they do that? please do.

 also, would you see bender shredding downhill like Sam Hill or flip whiping like Cam Mccaul? No you wouldnt see that either

 bender ought to build a new bike that can take that hit and come back and stomp that shit prove to everyone that he still hucks bigger than anyone

 like it or not,POD or not, it deserves the respect of anyone that rides a bike...much respect. stay cool and Go big or go home...
  • 2 0
 it really is strange when folk say 'bender sucks', has the fact that he was pro during the 'go big or go home' era of freeride, not penetrated the retarded skulls of the 15 yo overly opinionated kids of pinkbike?
  • 2 0
 well theres one younger user here who is a massive fan of Bender! This guy showed the way, big mountain riding like this is proper freeride, not the manicured dirt jumps and timber features that seem to dominate the "freeride" competitions. I find benders riding incredible, and ok he couldnt do some of the super complex tricks that many riders are doing today, but if you asked many of the pros today to hit that drop i'm not sure how many volunteers there would be. just my two cents, but personally I think Bender was a huge influence on the sport and was a great rider. Salute

 well downhill like at the time in nwd 1 2 and 3 was made of people with BALLS thats why nwd is dead cuzz now its just people riding pulling tricks now sick guys like bender dont exist...

 Agreed!

 I thought he hit this with an inverted Risse fork? Looks newer. Maybe I'm wrong. Still, one of the most amazing things I've seen done on a bike. Go Bender!
