    holy hard drops batman... yeah right- like we would have something that tech in pro in the US. 'pros' would whine and complain about this until the section was taped so you could drop straight off or something. the sad thing is gilles made this look uber easy too.

    I can think of a few things he might have done, but what did he do exactly? Im whining for him just sitting here. You have to be real accurate in a huck to the top most part of the block and drop from that or just quickly kick from the angled part and pray your tires stick? I have no idea, just wondering what he did, thanks.

    Not impressed. If I was as good as him I could do the same thing.

    dolphin- there are some riders on this continent who care more about the label of being a "pro" even though their view of themselves is far to elevated relative to the truth. they are unable to comprehend this and as a result when something looks "hard" to them the course should be change to suit their needs because after all pro is the highest level and that means if they cant do it no one can.

    what a brilliant state of mind some people have... :rolleyes:

    "These sections are way too hard, I 5ved 3 sections today, we should move the ribbon"

    not that I can really talk shit as I havent competed in a year or two and when I did I fived everything they threw at me, but I do remember watching the pro's gathering around while watching sections and bitching that stuff should be changed if they didnt like it and I think usually it got changed..

    Looking closer at that pic, just noticed that his brake levers are at very different angles. Looks like the left brake lever is angled down much farther than the right. Might just be the viewpoint of the photo, but I don't think so.

    Dam, you are right! I bet if I changed up my levers to those settings, and added a 105/15 stem I could do at least some of the things he does. Once I get a White Industries freewheel Gilles wont have any more advantages over me.

    that would be nice to just magically drop out of school and ride all the time...

    i run my brake levers like that too. if i run my left lever flatter it pinches a nerve in my hand and if i run my right lever steeper it hurts my wrist...

    i can't site with the pics for some reason, anyone else have this?
