 Wow, Maes looked fast and controlled going through there. (At least I think the last person through was him)

 He made the most jagged rocks look like bike park berms all weekend.

 he did exactly what I thought people should be doing, taking the top rock and clearing to the bottom ha

 @Jokesterwild: so easy right?

 @zoobab2: Yeah. The only one to not touch that last rock!

 Must be the wheel size combo.

 There’s a rock slabby thing (which you can’t see in the videos) which makes boosting the whole lot near impossible.

 Could anyone else hear the cowbell ?

 @Jouber: when did I say it was easy?
  • + 1
 @Jokesterwild: No kidding! So much smoother/faster avoiding all that arm/leg/suspension energy in the vertical plane. He avoids that and keeps momentum going down fall-line. Compare his exit speed after landing.. Multiply that efficiency over several rocky stages .... and you're wheel size doesn't matter lol!

 Agreed, instead of bloop-bloop, he went BLOP!

 that's how it's done! no throwing full cans of beer (what a waste) or batteries (what kinda a--hole does that?) just good times and lotsa noise.

 On a side note, after Tokyo 2020, 'maybe' Jolanda Neff could shift her attention to the EWS. She already has the endurance and technique.

Vital is reporting some interesting news HERE

 I saw that earlier! I always knew she could ride an XC bike downhill better than her competition, but this solidifies that fact even further.

 After a couple months on the AM bike she would demolish the EWS.

 Maes didn't even touch the second ledge. Cruisin'

 Max McCulloch, what a multi-talented individual. Excellent cyclist, stellar videographer, up-and-coming Vlogger, what a guy.

 hey soo uhhh... is that an easy drop? Because they really make it look easy. I have a feeling I would roll up to it, stop... then do that again 5 more times and maybe roll down it scared as hell.

 Long live hecklers rock whistler ????

 Yeah but humans are shitty and have no self control

 Classy hecklers rock. I like solid cheers and clapping rather than drunken slobbering antics that distract from the event. Keeping it classy Derby.

 Shirts off on the rock

 The best bit is that was a small crowd compared to most sections! Tassie getting it done.

 Less people, but twice as many heads.

 Just shows how strong bikes are made now, that is quite a G-out?
  • + 3
 Yep. Back in the day G-outs would bend cranks.

 Anyone remembers this legendary piece of video? www.pinkbike.com/video/190533

 Maes looked like flying over it! The only one that cleared it and seems to have lost no time while landing!

 Shirts! Off! On the rock! Shirts off on the rock!!
