Specialized thought he sucked.

An interesting about face of events considering the big S's reputation of sucking.

What the hell is a pod?

He didn't do a lot of riding last year. He seemed to be out of the loop in a lot of comps.

Nato and Steve get almost all of the photo's of the day in Kelowna.

And how the hell could Specialized think he sucks? He goes huge and has a great style. He's an awesome guy to hang out with, I went on a few rides with him this summer with some other pro's. Those are some of my best biking memories.

It was a joke. Specialized sucks, so in turn so do their riders.

I'm not a fan of Norco Either, but at the moment I am looking for a 2004 Rampage or Sasquatch frame to build for trailriding.

Personally, I would love to see him get into racing a bit. not drop the fr, but he is one of the first freeriders I have seen that can actually freaking ride fast. norco to me doesn't equal racing, which is another part of why I woudn't want to see him on their bikes.
