 I just can't understand how can you ride/race without knee pads. I wounldn't even go to pick some bread without!
  • + 1
 I've never used them, although I probably should start. I've been lucky to have my arms and hips take the damage most times, if you can call it lucky.

 we also don't have rocks in rotorua

 You may not have rocks, but for a minimal loss of comfort you get to ride and smash your knees without care, in my opinion that's more than a fair trade

 Is Wyn turning into Ratboy? or vice-versa.....

 Long hair, don't care Wyn's killing it lately. Hopefully him and the Rat take some podiums this season.

 Plenty of roots that open up a knee or elbow.
I didn't think I needed pads until I had one of those stupid, slow front wheel washouts on a steep trail. Fell off and my forearm was opened up from wrist to elbow and packed full of dirt & gravel. 2 staph infections, 2 operations, blood clots and a week in hospital has convinced me that pads every ride is worth it.

 Look like tough, but great flowing trails, wish i was there, but stuck in Sunny Scotland in stead

 So how does that timing system work?
  • + 7
 you have to stick a little plastic thing in a hole at the start and finish of each run... it works ok but you can easily lose a second or two if you come into the finish of a stage too hot and miss the hole thingy.
