 i agree simppe, its a good picture but nod POD worthy, way to many downhill pics get POD. they need to change it up and get some bmx and dj PODs

 dont worry guys some day bmx and dj guys will be as cool and pod worthy as dh..... they just have to start ridin dh Razz

 too bad the flag isnt a canadian one... would make the picture even better!

 sereously you guys keep bemanding for BMX POD's and barley any of them are good then you bash on on DH when the the pic is actaually good

 i like this picture but i gotta say some small changes would be great ^^ a sign for a bike part (rock shox maxxis etc.) instead of this canadian flag (: and the flash in background -.-' but i dont care the nice thing in the picture is the roots and that it looks so fast and generaly just a ncie DH race piture (: !

 i agree a bit of change in the PODs would be nice but we all know how rare a bmx pods are mainly because all of them refuse to wear helmets. but since its just been the world champs, i think its fair to say that DH pods are agreeable.

 ...its the Union Jack. Not a Canadian flag...

 Why do people care what gets pod, we cant decide so theres no use complaining, eventualy you just stop caring Rolleyes
  • + 6
 yep i-ride-dmr , i just see POD as a photo that i don't need to go into the photo section to view and get on with my life Smile
  • + 4
 POD is only decided by which photo gets the most faves in one day. it might not be the best, but more people have been arsed to fave it than any other. and since there is blatantly more DH'ers and freeriders on pinkbike, its obviously going to be heavily weighted. i love dh, but i also think dj is sick. bmx however, just looks like your adult on a kiddies bike, however awesome the tricks you can do are...

 wrong it has nothing to do with faves, spoiledgoods etc picks em, he used this power to advertise a bike he was selling being used Facepalm

 I cant believe the Negative comments about a FLAG. Everybody should be patriotic but slagging off is not good at all, please get a grip. AWESOME pic too...
  • + 2
 just to clear up the whole flag issue...1.im scottish 2.the flag was put up so that i could get pictures of the british team going past it & i thought it would look cool for them & various clients.3.the week before i did the same with an american flag at windham..4 yes the flag says (who's the canadaddy?)..and not many french speaking people actually got what it ment.5.i love canada and have relatives out there so i see myself as part canadian.5.i would have put a canadian flag up instead but nobody had one in the village..i asked almost everyone.6.its just a flag so please no fighting people.7.loved the people going rond with the canadian flag on ice hockey sticks.8.thanks for pod pinkbike..although not deserved i will take it..9.i have seen some of the photos the other photographers took at msa and believe me some ar superb.(bear in mind the top mountain bike photographers on the planet were here).10.only 5% of my photos have been done from windham and msa & are currently on my flickr site - www.flickr.com/photos/phunktcom


enjoy & love you all keith valentine aka phunkt.com.xxx

 Oh the irony as young Canadian Steve Smith soars past the British flag, and hopes to take a step high on the podium! Well done Steve, great ride, some a long way from the rider in Seasons! Much respect

 rider DESERVES get POD ... by the Canadian proud he brings to ... very nice shot too
  • + 1
 p.s - everyone pod is not decided purely on what pic gets the most faves or hits or both..the runners of pinkbike also take into account other factors like photographer,previous pods,photo quality,suitability humour,style and a wholelt of other stuff..etc etc etc.thanks.

 o ya the japanease is only a red circle what ever

 What are you talking about??? Pick up a book kiddo...
  • + 2
 Hey Richie, I read a book that told me that you'd be living under a mostly red flag and probably not allowed to post on this site under Kim Jong-Il if it weren't for US help in the '50's.

And to all you Brits that pos propped DanB25, ...suck it! Seriously, pos propping anyone who says "nuke" anyone, not acceptable. So what? We rebelled and told the crown to eat a d***, get over it. After all we've done for you since you'd think there would be a little love. BTW, Vermonster, GTFO! You are no longer welcome here. I renounce your citizenship Mr. Benedict Arnold.

On that note, bighucker503, shut it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with people showing a bit of national pride at an international competition. Grow up. Why wouldn't you have the balls to tell Mr. Smith there to take that Maple Leaf off of his jersey? Probably from the fear that the crazy Canadians aren't that far from your border and they probably fight better than you (seriously, you ever watch hockey?).

And finally, to everyone else, quit with the nation hatin'!!! Isn't this site supposed to be about BIKING? An international brotherhood bonded by the love of a sport? Leave the politics to the other sites for cryin' out loud, there are plenty of 'em.

Sweet capture by any scale. Congrats Phunkt! Nice ridin' Steve.

 Sentinel. quite the rant you had there, but i don't think anyone really cares too much about any of that, and don't forget that those things weren't part of our generations. and sarcasm doesn't read well on the web page. other than that. yea that pod is the shit. and bmx is kinda lame.

 i kinda agree with rockhopper, but quite a lot of what sentinel said was good.
