 What an awesome tribute movie!! That was great!! CG, I grew up watching you through all the NWD movies, and never even thought about the day that you would not step down off that pedestal, but maybe just move over and let some of the young guns at it.... What a career!!!

 Dear PB, could you please kindly repost the Youtube and Vimeo videos on PB's own video system? These two websites are blocked by our Great F**king Wall. Although we can use VPN to view the videos, but it's always a pain in the ass. Thanks! ---A loyal Chinese user

 If I were man enough to be living 1/10th of the life CG has carved out for himself, I'd look back on my life with a huge smile knowing I had put smiles on literally millions of faces. Thanks CG, you really are an inspiration to more than you will ever really know.

 glad that he is not quitting dh only the WC but it is still a shame because he was so focused and fit before last years crash (10th in Pietermaritzburg - many riders dream about first ten and CG is not a youngster anymore [physically ofc ;-) ]. Best of luck in enduro!

 It kind of bothered me how the one host at the Andorra event asked him why he's "QUITTING". The look on Cedric's face ..."come on, did you really just ask me that...?" I think the word "RETIRING" from DH would have been more fitting. You can see it in him that it's not an easy decision of any kind, to give up the things you love the most, things you've enjoyed for so long, but new adventures await Cedric...

This guy has done so much for the sport it's unimaginable. Its video's like this that prove us all right when we think of Cedric. Although he's RETIRING from DH, the world has yet to see what this guy is truly capable of. Long live the LEGEND. Congrats Cedric, always been a fan, always WILL be a fan. Good luck in Enduro!

 When I found who cedric gracia was and saw his videos I instantly knew I wanted to get into biking, I had the honour to meet him and go bowling with him, such a sick dude

 I remember seeing him win the NORBA championships at Mount Snow back in the day. Dude lost his seat at the beginning of the course and still pulled off the win. I was like a little kid back then. Stoked that he's still shredding

 Awesome!! I was also at that race. I remember his Cannondale slalom bike with the lefty fork, he pulled a 1950's hotrod 3-point knockoff on his front hub.

He once punched a magician. That’s right, you heard me."

 CG a true legend of the sport, a true inspiration, at least for me personally and a great character that gave a interesting and comedic twist to the WC. Looking forward to your future projects and your mark on Enduro. Long live the mustache !!!

 Mr. Gracia - You are the Godfather of DH. Thank you for everything you have done for Gravity Riding. Our world is a better place because of you.

 Cedric was the first guy I ever wanted to be like in MTB. Right around 97-98 when I was about 7-8yrs old and really got into biking I really looked up to him and A.C. Chausson. He was my first pro autograph, and it's sad to see him stop racing WCs, but it's good to see he's staying in the game. Cheers, CG!!
