HDR @ Air DH 2013
Bit on Lopes bike setup though confusing says 27.5 then specc says 26" Novotec wheels probably a rookie mistake, seems a weird setup to me for this again.
BL HDR Air DH video and setup
But he's always quick probably ride a trike down here faster than me.
Didn't anyone learn anything in that "I only ride park video", muppets!
These type of riders drive me crazy, getting allot of this here now as well and we don't even have a bike park urgh. BL was allot nicer than I am when I go past haha.

Live Here Air DH
All about low bottom bracket nice!
Interesting way to go about it, then talking about how little travel he has since the course is so blown out since its been so dry.
Why not run something like a works components angle set? maybe offset shock bushings? Interesting, he has the skills, but my teeth feel like falling out already!
Every time I see a BL Air DH run, all I can say is "Daaaaaaamn".
That's why he's Brian Lopes.
Good stuff Mav, thanks

Stevei Smith back to back winner, 5sec slower than last year, still he's on fire right now.
When I watched the Crankworx Air DH reply I was sure BriLo was back on Marzocchi's, I'm glad your pic cleared this up for me! You've got to admit it was an easy mistake to make what with the proto crown and the "M' on the legs!
No worries justj thats XFusions new Metric sort of a Freeride fork reduced to 140mm travel for that race, giving it a bit of airtime exposure!
Does anyone have the link to the replay?
here ya go man
