    I'd rather not. Also riding a 29er is very different to riding 26er. ;-)

    No, I wouldn't either. Maybe borrow a bike at a local bikepark. But if you've never ridden trails before, be careful.

    Maybe a freerider will be my next bike. But I don´t think that I will do this hardcore stuff. Maybe some small jumps...

    But first I have to save some munay!!!!

    saw this too, some days ago. I don't know if I like Danny Harts style, always looks a bit too uncontrolled, like if it could work out or not. Just like his run in Fort William, where he made so much mistakes. Of course he's awesome and I am glad that he won, not Gwin.

    I always loved Greg minaars style.

    In fact I am totally digging his style of riding. His "uncontrollable" style might be due to super muddy and wet condition. But I think he's very aggressive and if you noticed at his whip just before the finish line. He definitely trains on a MX too. He deserved this win, nonetheless.

    Yes, the whip was insane. I meant this run:

    Very tough. But my favorite female riders always were Sari Jörgensen and Rachel Atherton.

    Sorry, I don't know anything about biking, got a mom's bike which gets me from a to b. But that video is really intense and inspiring.

    WTF? I can't even tell how many spins these guys do. Glad I gave up biking for skating (although I suck at that, too).

    (And I am not too serious :p)
