    Palmer is back in action? RAWK!!

    ridemonkey.com

    "The return of Shawn Palmer. Napalm showed up at dirt demo and was around all week making cameos at events and booths around the show. Sitting next to the best of the best in mountain biking, it was still USA Today's "world's best athlete" who had the longest lineups for autographs. rumour has it the Palm is looking to make a small comeback to MTB racing, and wants to jump into a few World Cups next year. He was seen tooling around on a Santa Cruz all week, so Roskopp must be grinning form ear to ear right now."

    Just in time for the skinsuit ban with dh racing. Coincidence?

    Wonder if he'll be doing some 4x racing as well.

    I'd be disappointed if he didn't. Probably won't be racing for specialized again huh? The Palm seems too rowdy to be part of the syndicate... maybe not...

    Could you imagine this final if he did do 4x. Carter, Lopes, Gracia, Palmer.

    The rumor is that he will be making an appearance in DH and 4x. I can't wait.

    I think they should change 4x if the final happens to be Palmer vs. Gracia.

    Le Mans start...run to the starting gate...slam a pint...race down the mountain...slam a pint...throw on some boxing gloves and beat the piss out of each other at the end...everything is worth points...the race down the mountain being worth the most, of course.

    Not to downplay his erstwhile ability to excel at multiple sports, but the couple times I've been around Palmer he came off as an utter douÁhebag, so I won't be pulling for him.

    Wow...different from what I read elsewhere, but what I read could have been somebody paid to kickstart his comeback.

    That sucks.
