Ladies and gentlemen, can we please stay on topic here? Keep your comments on topic, if you feel the need to continue with personal retorts, please do so sidebar. Let's all maintain respect for the thread. The community has experiance some heavy loss in injury and passing this year. We can all appreciate the gravity of the situation. Mountain biking is a sport with risk. We all are willing to take those risks at the level we do. This is subjective, as is your opinions. I know we all want to chime into the community. Conversation and constructive criticism is welcome, but let's keep the chatter civil shall we? Thank you.

Video: Brandon Semenuk & His Slope Bike in 'Act.II'
@Brzzi: Lol, your absolutely right man. I'm really just joking around. I love these edits. To be honest though, to do these things isnt in the cards for me as it's not my focus. I ride downhill bikes. So the fact I've put very little effort into learning tricks, pretty much means I have very few tricks. I was really just trying to get a laugh. :)

Well thanks again Brandon. Once again, when I feel like I'm starting to feel like I'm becoming a pretty decent rider, you go ahead and release one of these edits, blow everybody's minds, and make me feel pretty shitty about myself. I think I'm gonna go eat my feelings away now. I'm starting to think maybe CGI??

Jordie Lunn Passes Away After Crash in Mexico
I got this news last night, and thought it was just a dumb joke... This is devastating... I'm at a loss of words.

Arbr Unveils Production Ready RB2 29er
@evildos: I wouldnt call it overly original. This isnt that much of a departure from the old RMs or Chumba Wumba's. Definitely differant from what were used to seeing currently though

Antoine Bizet Pulls Out of Rampage After a Crash in Training
@NYShred: I think your taking this way too personal here and slightly out of context. An opinion is one person's perspective. This does not impact the reality of things nor does it imply a desire to impact the reality of things. It's only an observation. All that aside, once again there is really no need to react the way you do. It's unnecessary. You need to calm down. If you have an opinion (as you so clearly do), feel free to share it like an adult. On another note, I can also say I'm not one of the general masses who following social media. PB is literally the ONLY thing I have that comes close to social media. I work, I ride my bike, I spend time with my family, and I enjoy my life. The thoughts I share are summaries of many professional mountainbikers I know and call friends. I officially opt out of this conversation now. Thanks for your thoughts.

@NYShred: Yes, like it or not, in a sense Riders are products. No differant than an actor or a comedian. Their "Content" is a byproduct of their persona and abilities. Your absolutely right though. They are human beings. That's why showing every part of their journey matters. Consider Paul Bas.. so your telling me you only wanna see the crash that shattered his T12? What about his journey to walk and ride a bike again? That's all part of the story. Not just the crash. That's what inspires me. On that note. Let's keep the debate on point and civil. I think my previous post is proof enough that I show the capacity for a compound thought as oppose to a mindless "Sheep" as you state. Believe me when I say, I'm sure you and I share the very same opinion in regards to the Kardashians.

@NYShred: I'm not sure I agree with you on this. Mountainbiking is an industry, riders are essentially products, and social media is their marketing tool. This is their lifeblood. Building a career off of selling themselves as riders and attracting attention to themselves makes them more marketable. The more marketable, the more potential backing they get from sponsors. More backing means bigger salaries, more rider support, more media coverage by such sponsors, and again more backing by sponsors. Most professional mountainbikers are grossly underpaid, and ultimately will have to fall back onto a secondary career path at one point. On another note. While many people are only interested in these riders for the abilities as riders, others are interested in these riders as people. So while one aspect may not be of any interest to you per say, it may be to others.
