 Kind of a weak pod...He's not even doing a turn-bar. Sheesh. Razz Love the set up for the shot though.

 Cool shot, but I'm still not sure why people think it's cool to have the flash in the shot. It's usually just a cop out for poor composition or just a boring shot. This would be really nice if the flash actually lit up the rider, I think anyway.

 it would be better if there wasn't that bright light behind the rider cos its really distracting.

 @Braggcreekbiker5 - Tiz an old joke, SDH was being silly. Trust me, he appreciates the gnar goodness of this shot...that kid goes big!

How big is the step-up Aurelien68? It looks huge! Congrats on getting POD Salute

 Haha, NO ONE has a sense of humor on PB anymore. Except for this guy^

And a turn-bar is what it sounds like, when someone turns their bars to look stylish without actually doing a trick. It was a joke. That no one got.

 Lol, pinkbike has hit a serious problem.

Yes, pun intended.
  • + 2
 okay ... i wasnt being mean haha i just had nooo clue that a turn bar was lol it sounded a but odd though

 add a cool trick and it be the shitt

 Opinion, like it or dislike it but put up with it.
I think this shot would be perfect IF the rider was a tiny bit further forward and the intense part of the light was blocked. sorta like holding your hand up to the sun and blocking the middle but still seeing all the rays coming out the side. Maybe?
  • + 1
 The dirt on the trail, the trees in the background, the context of fog, the sun rising behind him, the snow in the air, the stars on his helmet...its all very natural...near-jolting contrast against the anachronism of a bike. RIDE ON!

 holy shit another not downhill POD, pinkbike is finally getting it right Salute

 Love this picture, being from BC I love the fog and rain, my favorite bit; the tiny raindrops lit up by the flash, dunno why, it just looks cool.

 Yeah, just got to drink some concrete. you should be willing to suffer allot to get "the shot" if you aren't that's when you know the passion isn't there

 i just think it would have been better if the rider was throwing a bar or even a whip over it. i agree the whole picture is immense just it seems to me asif it is pod due to the picture not the rider

 Isn't a POD supposed to be a picture of the day, not a rider of the day though?

 Well if you do read a lot, normally not even a single person replies to a previous comment, especially that far up, so I just assumed he was talking about the picture. My mistake.
