 And he's got that next-level eye for locations & mise-en-scene that add up to crazy-memorable visuals too. Nobody makes me want to pack up my bike and travel quite the way Bron does!

 Crazy gap between the top 2 and the rest. Not as crazy as the gap between number 5 and me though. I thought 75 km/h was crazy...

 A long , long time ago I hit 65 mph down a mountain pass on a road bike and put my arms up when I hit that mark.

 Meh. The first couple x-games had dh mtb in it and several riders went faster than this at Snow Summit. The spiked tires and skin suits probably helped, but they were hauling for sure. I think the fastest was near 70mph.
