Rémy Métailler in Super Slow Motion
Well, someone finally managed to edge Final Cut Bro for slowest Mo in the biz! And even FCB would have been satisfied with that roost. It appears Norbs has been robbed, yet again...

Prototype Wireless Electronic Drivetrain - Stellenbosch World Cup
That could get fun. Even just hacking the code and having a controller with you and dropping him into the small cog 10 feet up a climb ????

6 Months After Breaking His Neck, Remy Morton is Back - Video
To watch that riding segment at the end after the crash is simply incredible. That’s what “free” riding looks like. That’s art on a bike, shaping runs like that with so much control. You can tell this man is elated to have his brushes back and will be at the canvas making up for that lost time. Live fast, die last, classic. Cheers Remy!

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
I’ll forever have the moment of watching, live, the image of Ulriche Maier’s lifeless body ragdolling to a stop after she lost and edge and hit the fence in ‘94, burned into my memory. David Poisson and Max Berkhart last year. Sarah Burke in snowboarding halfpipe, all the folks that die in avalanches every year. The list goes on and on and on and just continues to get longer. Just because it looks smooth, and snow looks forgiving doesn’t mean it is. I think RC on some level understands those simple premises, of course, but I think he has perspective in MTB (being involved since the beginnings) that gives him a healthy respect and fear when he sees heavy stuff being done on a bike, but he lacks this perspective and experience as it relates to skiing, being that he’s not as closely connected and doesn’t have as many relatable experiences to act as touchstones. If he did, it’s likely that he’d feel the same gravity and concern watching freeskiers, snowboarders, and WC DH ski racers that he does watching Rampage and the like.

Exclusive Loic Bruni Interview – The Steps to Success
They're just reacting to him saying this is something he's working on. The struggle is real, these guys are humans trying for the pinnacle where in a 3 minute race being 2% off the winning time could leave you out of the top 20. It's more than just riding and bombing, and from his comments it seems Bruni took home some valuable lessons last year, but acknowledges sometimes he's learned lessons and had trouble implementing them consistently going forward. Anyone at the pointy end of the WC field has enormous physical and bike handling gifts, but the guys who park themselves at the top, Vouilloz, Peat, Minaar, Gwin, have a systematic and staid approach and the ability to block out all the faff. Time and maturity will tell if Bruni will be one of those guys, but it's pretty safe to say he'll always be one of the most fun to watch because of his potential and Brosnan like "ride fast, take chances" approach at the races. I actually wonder if this has helped him at World Champs races, because everyone is racing all out to win that day, "checkers or wreckers", and some guys struggle with that aspect, yet he seems to race that way every weekend, so maybe it's just another day ending in y scenario to him. That's what makes it all so interesting!
