That Mythbusters test is interesting. Measuring what is 'faster' for racing is so complex though. While something might be marginally slower on the clock, it can give a rider a feeling of confidence and flow, which ultimately results in a faster time at the end of the run. When Josh Bryceland was on a tear in WC DH, he talked about how he'd always look for a jump to throw a whip off because it helped him get into a 'flow' mindset. Sure, it was a bit slower through that short section, but it helped him avoid riding tight and push too hard for the remainder of the run. Obviously there is a balance there and its not going to be the same for everyone, but that is part of what makes racing so exciting. There is so many different ways you can achieve speed, not one formula that can be applied across the board.

Replay: Slopestyle - Crankworx Cairns 2023
@Number29: I really liked Rob's commentary. He has that excitement of someone that isn't used to what he is seeing. He was genuinely blown away by Bringer's double flip.

Medium Norco Range C1$5800 CAD
Hi folks! I’m selling my 2022 Norco Range C1. This bike is an absolute weapon on the descents and truly makes you feel like a super hero. There are some minor cosmetic issues (see photos), but otherwise it is in excellent conditions has been regularly maintained by the professional mechanics at Oak Bay Bicycles. The tires, wheels, and brakes, and handlebars are brand new and have not been ridden. Other regular maintenance (such as replacing chains, pivot hardware, suspension servicing) has been done at regular intervals and the bike feels excellent. Feel free to reach out to me with reasonable offers as I don't have space at home to keep this bike, so I am looking to sell it relatively quickly. Let me know if you have any further questions. The full parts list is below. Thanks!
