 @traildigger94 I respect your personal opinion, but can I ask what part of this is not POD worthy? It's Aaron Gwin, he's doing a sick scrub on his way to winning a World Cup, the composition is pretty awesome, even the spectators are great.

Oh, and he's an American wearing stars and stripes, and today is the 4th of July. But that bits not as important....

  • + 3
 @traildigger94 I think you have bin sleeping under a rock, because Aaron just won the WC in MSA.
And the thing is, look at the advertising behind this pic.. It's Trek! Besides that, in my opinion the pic is not realy mind blowing, but there is action, thats for sure. I'm not in to the photo-tech stuff, but everyone can see this one is not special. right ?
  • + 12
 @IanHylands Its because everyone and their mother has an SLR these days and everyone thinks that they are all of a sudden qualified to judge photographs like their pro photographers. I was out taking real photos the other night at the fireworks and i was almost ashamed to pull out my camera gear and be associated with these photographer wannabes.

Agreeably its not like its a work of fine art but it is a great photo nonetheless. The timing and composition require a lot more skill than some of the "judges" on pinkbike are aware of.

 yes he won, but it doesnt mean that the POD next day should be a picture of him, yes everything is cool in this pic its sick, but it doesnt have that special feel to it, if you dont know what i mean MR HYLAND then you must be a crappy photographer who has never made a masterpiece photo. (btw , yes i know who you are).
How much did trek pay you to choose this pod?

 ^hahahaha thats funny because everyone knows Ian can take a better pic then some PB user who thinks hes a badass over the internet.

 shitface, everyone knows hes a great photographer.. but this pic is not special! There is trek advertisment and guess who won.. Aaron, a Trek rider. I agree with Variiis.
  • + 62
 Well you can think what you want, as I said before you're entitled to your opinion. However I will tell you that Trek has absolutely nothing to do with the POD selection, they sponsor the page, does that mean you're going to start making accusations anytime one of their riders is in the POD? And Gwin winning yesterday also had nothing to do with the choice of this pic, it was picked more than a few days ago because I wanted something obviously American for the 4th and I happened to really like this shot. If you have a problem with me choosing an American rider as POD for the 4th I understand, and you should probably start crying and complaining about that as well. At least then you'd have a valid complaint.

 my opinion is that this isnt the best pic for a POD

  • + 13
 everyone thinks americans live for mc Donalds hahah which in some cases is true, peronally i hate it, idk how ppl can eat it
  • + 25
 if anyone actually still cares, one of the main reasons Americans have been overly expressive with their excitement is because for the longest time American downhillers have struggles to keep a consistent podium standing throughout a world cup season.

now that Gwin has emerged as the leading competitor (not just a single american podium, but multiple consecutive wins) this newer hierarchy is starting to instill more a sense of national pride within Americans for seeing such a large quantity of win after almost none at all for years.

we may come off a bit cocky at times with all the "f*ck YEAH USA!" type sayings but just know that given most of our already nationalistic opinions, all these wins from an underdog is really bumping up the pride and its fun to express it.

ps butthurt is an understatement.

I don't want to go over politics and nationalism...I love the sport, and don't care if you are from the arctics or wherever...if you are good at it, you get respected...if you are not that good, I respect you for placing first the sportmanship over your politics point of view or nationalism...Gwinn, Gee, Josh, Peaty, Steve Smith...they all respect each other regardles of citizenship...

 @ IanHylands. You may have taken a photo of Monica Belucci (unfortunately for you doesn't race dh) who is sitting on a chair wearing casual clothes doing nothing, just sitting on the chair. Without wearing bathing suit or underwear or showing any signs of lust, does it make it a pod. Just because it is Monica Belucci doesn't mean that is going to be always a 'pod' for a fashion magazine (but it should). Believe me Aaron is never going to be that famous.
So it is Aaron Gwin doing his stuff, so what? It's not Guy Martin or Ian Hutchinson nor Conor Cummins, get a life.
Some less famous riders made some huge leaps at the same race but who cares this is about America and Mc Donalds.
So Ian every time that a country has a national celebration post a pod as a tribute.

 Mozarle, Aaron is probably already more well know than Connor, or any of the TT boys, no disrespect but this is an mtb site, and Aaron is the greatest out there at the moment after 3 years of racing, that is pretty damn impressive. The photo is also symbolic, it's 4th of July, and an American is dominating. This is what America likes to do in most arena's, it's more than just what you see, it's what the story it tells.

No one really cares how well you're 'trained' if you come across as an ass-hole who's full of up himself.

You seem like a smart guy, so I'm pretty sure you know better than anyone you're going to deal with it. It being today's POD. I like it, but it IS a plain photo. But don't we get those all the time as POD?

and people stop talking about fat americans, everyone talks about it and thats why its a stereotype, but go have a look in other countries and open your eyes, you'll seethe whole world is full of fat people, america maybe a bit more, but its a huge country, im sure that in percentage, we english people are not far behind at all, then what ? Who cares anyway ?
And scott-townes got the exact point, ANYONE would be stoked if an athlete originally from their country won the world cup. So could you not just please stfu and let the amrican enjoy this 1 DAY in the year full of national pride ? It wouldnt have killed you and it would have been nicer for them.
Besides I love McDonalds. and im not american, been eating it AT LEAST 5 times a week for 2years and im completely fine. McDonalds isnt typically american anymore, it originated there, but everyone in the world eats McDonalds.
Anyways today's another day, another POD, let's see what people complain about this time instead of just ignoring what they dont like and focusing on what they do like, always have to criticise. -.-

 I think you're giving the majority of PB users a bit too much credit there. I like the pic but it doesn't really stand out as anything super special to me. Each to their own I guess.

There is nothing wrong with this POD, just making a point..
