@plxmtb: What is BS is the part above about Tom Brady and his advantage via opportunity. If we follow that logic then I am an anomaly. How else do you explain that I'm black, but have managed to live on 3 continents and visit far more (not in the military), have 5 cars and 3 mountain bikes, owned 20 different guitars, make 6 figures and have no real debt? But to hear you tell it, I MUST BE LYING because my parents divorced when I was young, filed for bankruptcy and lost a house so we were poor, and we are black. By spreading this view point you completely ignore the difficult, but far more powerful balance between environment, nurture, and temperament. Instead, this view irons all people out into the same with the only differences from one to another being a measure of affluence during upbringing. It's a flawed and dangerous view.

PB has gotten real good at driving division in the MTB scene! I'm not trying to say drunk driving is OK, and I'm really NOT into public shaming. Next PB will be running the whole "social credit" system (like China) which is just a soft form to tyranny. Both sides of this argument are right, but somebody needs to focus on the underlying issue! How it's viewed by all of us as a society! How much 5hit do we see here on PB conflating biking, drinking, and general good times? So when someone starts biking, drinking, and having a good time then develops an addiction we make a pariah of that person? We're all complicit in setting a trap that many get caught up in. And the good majority of us have no clue how addiction affects the decision process. No clue how one becomes a slave to the chemical processes that take hold. So as someone that's lost a brother to addiction and the follow on behaviors AND lost friends to drunk driving AND worked in law enforcement so I could see many of these affected up close and personal AND spent a good deal of time in a relationship with someone with a PHD in Psychology, I'll say both sides of this argument are right. But as usual the best plan of action is somewhere in the middle.

@AntN: I think it's spot on! No matter what end it came from. ;-)

@betsie: More speed (up to a point of course) at the apex can easily equate to more grip as long as the forces at work are being translated to contact patches AS AN EFFECT of more weight bearing downward on them. The ultimate result is much the same as down force from an F1 car, IMSA prototype, or even a car like the GTR simply as a result of it's heft.
