bigquotesIt was gnarly, man. The track dried out from practice and I just gave it all I had and didn't leave anything back. I tried to control my breathing, but that kind of got blown out the window. I don't know, just a super smooth run, hit all my lines and didn't really make a mistake. I'm pumped to be on form and to get back and into my training - Troy Brosnan

 Australian DH may be taking off, but i have one issue... In some areas, such as Queensland,esp Central Qld, have virtually no DH trails in cooe. And where are the DH parks in Sydney? I'm an expat kiwi who is used to a whole range of options within an hour or two and there are trails 3 minutes away from my house in NZ. Maybe this is just part of our two unique countries nature, NZ is very compact and everything is close and Oz is a vast and barren land with a bunch of stupid laws?

 sorry bro but the QLD state champs were held in Central QLD in 2009...Goldy is still kicking despite the need of a trim and clean up...

But i can 100% agree with your comment.We really need the local Goverment to get behind us here...many have tried but failed......

 There is STILL too big of a focus on XC. That's where all the money is going What the Australian government doesn't understand is 'we could have a Whistler' here, it would make huge money for the economy and there would be riding more of the year at the bike park with chair lifts than that of Whistler. It would also keep Australians in Australia spending their money, you guessed it, in Australia. It would also bring riders from other parts of the globe and have potential for large events. They just need to employ some Europeans and North Americans and put them on a mtn with some bob cats and shovels.

 Sam Hill was commng off an injury so he problly wasnt in tip top shape like troy.

 Yeh Sam I think is holding back because that neck injury was fierce....Or maybe hes just scared it will happen again,But I bet in next years WC he will be back. But thats not the 1st time Troy bet Sam,Im pretty sure he bet him twice in the world cups.

 sam on the demo 8 carbon?
  • 2 1
 Nope, that's actually his 2010 world cup bike. My guess is Specialized being in the off-season, Sam had to make due with what he had in his garage.

 Plus he was running a funn stem and grips, crankbrothers pedals and black unnamed rims.

 That is VERY Weird... Brosnan looks pinned all the way
