 I was really disappointed that the grim donut 2 didn't get some proper ride reviews and timed laps. All that engineering effort yet so little follow up.

 The Richie Rude answer is incorrect, he won junior worlds in Pietermaritzburg in 2013, which was 10 years ago, not 12 years ago

 I once "leaked" the Shimano Saint group when it first came out. I posted a pic on NSMB and quickly recieved a PM asking for my number so that Shimano can call me. I gave them my number and they called me to ask where I found the pics.
