Video: Every Single Trick in Dennis Enarson's New 'Caps Lock' Video is a Banger
@adrennan: Dirt jumping contests originated in the 80's as events called "King of Dirt" in between the motos and mains at bmx races. Dirt jumping developed from that to be it's own sport which took off in the 90's. During that time, pro dirt jumpers Tim "Fuzzy" Hall and TJ Lavin started experimenting with jumping 26" bikes, which launched a whole new market for 26" wheel jump bikes that were labeled as mtn bikes. In the 00's some progressive bmx courses were built downhill, with wooden features and drops. Some clever mtn bike industry people took this concept and called it "mtb slopestyle". So slopestyle really evolved completely from bmx. The only involvement mtn biking has had is to brand it and sell you overpriced, heavy, flexy, unnecessary contraptions. The act of riding a bike off a jump IS itself bmx, no matter what you've been sold to do it on. BMX is an act, not a type of bike.

Burning Question: Should the DH Skinsuit Ban Be Lifted?
@ka-brap: Skiing is sustained speed. Modern DH MTB tracks only have a few short sections that briefly allow for getting up to those speeds. The general consensus among racers and fans is that more gnarly, steep, technical tracks are what's wanted over the wide open, speed tuck tracks of the past.

Keeping the camera steady with the DH bike. You're doing it for the people. Thank you for being selfless, unlike these enduro try-hards.

The Story Behind the Start Order at the UCI World Cup DH in Losinj
The rare times it does happen are exciting, though. The tension building up to their race run breaks up the normal routine, and heightens the viewers sense of wonder. This change is just part of the old "too many cooks spoil the pot" dilemma that flattens out those peaks of excitement. It's like when a music artist gets signed to a big label and their songs end up getting over produced and watered down in order to sound inoffensive in the background of commercials and summer movies.

@iamamodel: I'm not the one saying this. I don't know what to think. All I know is a guy who has traded wins with Gwin before said it's impossible at Leogang. I've never ridden Leogang myself. I rode the Hafjell track, where Neko had his amazing chainless run, and I could see it working there for sure.

@WAKIdesigns: I would think someone who is regularly next to Gwin in the top 5, and sometimes beating him, would be a pretty good judge of what he's capable of.

Well a certain rider who has won many world cups has said, off the record, that Gwin's win without a chain at Leogang was impossible. Not just in the way people say "He's done the impossible!", no, literally impossible. Even breaking top ten shouldn't have been possible, let alone winning. He said there is something very wrong with that time. If that's the opinion of one of the top DH racers in the world, then I wouldn't brush off Claudio's comment as meaningless.

What's the rider weight limit? There definitely is one. Funny it isn't mentioned.
