    I watched it twice, I was too busy watching the action to spot Robert. It wasn't him on top of the ledge at about 1:04 was it? Oh and yes he did say Napalming

    Yeah, Rob Warner (the commentator) is a piece of work. He did all the World Cup DH announcing too. Just think how cool you'll sound at your next group ride when you say to your buds "dude, I totally napalmed that last section."

    I thought that at first, then upon closer inspection I found that they were dullys (I think Konas), but I might be wrong.

    I'm confused; is it timed of scored? I see guys pulling tricks off of some stuff but not other stuff.

    I was paging through the pics and I think I spotted our Highrevs in a couple. I like the vids but I love the pics.

    Oh, I think I get it. They get scored on their lines between gates as well, right?

    There are no gates. The way I understand it they all are free to choose their own lines except that they have to hit a few certain obstacles like the monster canyon gap. They are scored on the lines they pick and the tricks they perform.

    I am pretty sure there are certain gates they must hit (I think there are only a couple) but I may be wrong.

    Edit: One of these videos had some reference to gates, I think.

    Some of those guys just ride with a helmet and thats it.. T shirt and shorts, maybe shin guards. Imagine all that skin making contact with that rocky sandy surface.
    Did you just kick my tire?! I hope you didn't just kick my tire!

    You guys have got it al wrong,those RBR guys are not in the TGMBG. If they had any clue that a skinny photo geek was really a TGMBG member they would give him the trophy.

    You are right, '66. I forgot I had the weight of the TGMBG behind me.
