    Man. I'd still be trying to muscle my way up onto that rock he flew over while he's at the bottom gettin' a drink.

    Brian Lopes has crazy-mad skills at fast riding. He's to fast descending what that Danny Macaskil- guy is to trials.
    They oughtta do a video together. That would be something to see.....

    Watching him float up that rock, I'm thinking he doesn't abide by the laws of physics.

    That is amazing to watch. Obviously he is incredibly talented. However is it safe to assume that he rides that same trail a LOT? Again, not saying that I could ride that trail like that if I rode it enough, just thinking about the combination of skill WITH trail familiarity. I mean could he ride a trail like that first time with the same smoothness? Maybe so, he is a uniquely skilled rider. Don't they pre-ride downhill, 4x, etc racecourses to learn the lines before racing them? Just thinking out loud.

    That was an Ibis Mojo...not too retro, considering you can still buy them today...

    Love watching how effortless it is for him to ride. I can only dream about riding with that level of smoothness and fluidity.
