There are some serious no riding mofos in there! Jesus, lean back behind the seat and maybe you won't pitch it over the front wheel every lap.

Are those wheels made of cheese? I'm sure it's steeper and rougher than it looks but come on! Drunk racing maybe?

'92-'94 is when I used to race. I could totally see me having faceplanted like those fools. I'd certanly taco'd enough front wheels.

Edit to Add: those guys look like road racers that went MTB for the weekend.

There was a lot of neon clothes in that video, they might not need full susp but a mirror before walking out the door may have helped.

Also it's not a tank slapper, in bikes we would just say we racked our nuts.

damn. There definitely have been improvements in what bikes are made out of.

+1 to Ken's comment, why weren't they leaning back off the seat more?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

no it's the same in every sport. Pussies blame equipment and take their anger out on it. Bad ass muffuckas laugh and blame themselves. I laugh and blame myself alot.

You never have to blame anybody for anything when you win.
