 Still searchin'

 @leopaul: No kidding.... What drugs would you need to try that shit on a 55LB bike with 22" wide bars, 300mm reach, brakes that don't work, a seat you can't avoid... not to mention nobody knew how to build big back then. It was just a guess. Watch his jaw drop footage. 55' to what may as well have been a parking lot!

 @nuttypoolog: good post, thx for the link! I can't believe he just kept going for it, Bender is a BEAST! I always forget how gnarly his stuff was back then... Is it possible he is actually Animal Chin?

 @won-sean-animal-chin: Always searching

 @nuttypoolog: I used that clip just last week in my science class teaching my students some stuff about gravity, friction, mass, acceleration, etc. Lots of my physics lessons involve mtb vids. Mostly just just an excuse to watch that stuff while I am teaching.
  • + 2
 @timrippeth: Keep that clip! Could also be used when you're ready to talk about Chemistry and the effects of drugs limiting judgement and brain function. Sorry Josh! If you hit that totally sober I owe you a huge public apology.

 What's a lily pad drop?
  • + 1
 @therealtylerdurden: its a short landing that you then have to jump off of to another landing. watch the videos and they call it out as he hits it.

 I love Vinny T just saying "uh ya haven't figured out how to ride this ultra steep line with an entry on the edge of a rock face but ya should be no prob". Meinwhile I'm sweating just watching a video of these guys standing on the top of the hill

 Got stressed by just watching that.
  • + 2
 I hope they keep it inside the tape, it can get real tense watching your idols perform the death defying live. They're all winners.

 This inside the tape thing is awesome, good job from the Director of Good Times! So gnarly to even look at these lines. I felt dizzy looking down some of those from the comfort of my couch.

 Tippie is the man! he should ride the course explaining!

 Bring back Claudio too! Big Grin

 Some intern musta screwed up posting this because it's meant to be called Just the Tip Smile
  • + 9
 I think PB owns the "Just the tip" content from Tippie - "Inside the Tape" is for RedBull.
  • + 11
 @NYShred: Inside the Tape is a PB series that digs a bit deeper into line choice, etc.
  • + 65
 @brianpark: So, Just the Tip doesn't go in that deep?

 Tippie and his empty red bull cans, had one yesterday in the pre-show as well. Nice product placement but I'm pretty sure he doesn't drink them. I'd bet that the Red Bull secret sauce is extracted from him.
  • + 2
 You sure? I seem to remember him cracking it and taking several swigs yesterday. And most people comment how hes "always drinking" the stuff.

Stop being so cynical, its a sponsor so promote it.
  • + 2
 @laxguy: i can vouch that he was actually drinking them. The proof lies in the all nighters it took to get these videos out!
  • + 3
 "Hey Tippie, ya ready for the take? Also, please hold this can of Red Bull."
"Ugh, I don't have to drink that sruff, right?"
"Nah, but it's the main sponsor, so please hold it."
"K"

 A weird thing happened on my laptop earlier today. I had a YouTube how to instructional up in the background paused & it just started the RedBull LIVE FEED at practice interviewing McGazza's brother.

Have you guys seen Reed's over jump of the canyon gap...and then somehow almost killing himself UNDER jumping/casing it??? Bike...fine both times.

 Tippie,love the guy but I wish he would finally learn how to fuckin hold the mic!

 I think Claw is doing the right ridge not the left that’s why no interviewing him on this one. Great insight to this vid, thx PB

 Peering down into Nell's lily pad drop was really scary

 Tippie is going to be fully Amped and circuited tomorrow!

 This is just a huge slopestyle course... When it was all natural, even Atherton was able to score well just by being able to ride the gnar.

 Looking down at the whole area from the top it looks like an alpine serpentine road, only thing missing is the asphalt. Maybe next year they'll pave the roads to make it EXTRA GNARLY.
  • + 1
 So many lines happening and shaping up out there some areas look like a maze

 Mom's sphagetti.... LOL
