 those brakes sounded pretty squeaky, even though they weren't wet. not so good if its supposed to make us want saint... the on/off rock was cool but not to write home about, 2 foot drop off it. still really cool riding, good to see some raw lines once in awhile.

 got love the new Slayer frames, no mater what, theyre sick!

 I love the fact that at the end when you see his run theres no music. it speaks for its self. its really that good.
  • + 5
 wow ive seen a million step up then step off things that look cool but step down step off?!?! thats so sick!
  • + 8
 Sick line, love Thomas riding style..so smooth..but i hate the part when they say he's doing this line because he feels confortable with the new saint group. I mean..it's only a derailleur and brakes. Unless those brakes are total crap, he could have done this line in any case.

 vod for sure that was so sick when he jumped on then off the rock

 Great vid, takes balls to try anything like that with a prototype group set !!

 Insane vid. I like the way the music cuts out for the final run. You really appreciate how hard that is. He nearly overshot that rock gap - could have been nasty.
  • + 3
 far out thats one of the sickest lines, no big hits but fast steep flow testing your limits, Vanderham is the sickest dude ever, keeping the mountains in mountain biking
  • + 2
 wow that really showed how hard it is to ride a line like that, it puts you in the moment with hearing him breathing and stuff, not just listening to music and making it look all calm and relaxed

 Seems a little bit like a shimano advertisement, but shimano seems like they actually might be on the right track with that saint group...
  • + 4
 I dont really see why he is getting neg props. Shimano, like a lot of other companies, has not yet adapted to new riding styles. the revamped saint edition is that answer to SRAM.
