    Dirtbikedude - That last guy was you, right? Thats some awesome video! I've stuck to XC in the past, but seeing that kind of stuff makes me wonder if I've been missing something!

    That's the difference between those who win and those who finish mid-pack. You gotta see the lines others don't. "If you use their lines you finish with their times". Either that or the guy was lucky he didn't biff it.

    Nathan Rennie, he is that good If any one is thinking of going pro, guys like that are what you will be compeating with. The top pros are sick. They make the hardest lines look like the easiest.

    I'd probably crash just coming around the corner, much less jumping off the trail to set-up for the next turn. That's sick! I love it!

    N.R. and riders such as him are awesome to watch. It is inspiring and shows you just what can realy be done on a bike. I am lucky enough to be able to ride with a couple of ex-pros and they push the shyt out of me when we ride. There is one guy from Australia that makes the sickest trail look like he is riding a fireroad. A few weeks ago he blew his rear shock and still pulled off a 10' drop as if it was only a curb. They are amazing riders.
