    In case that you guys didn't know most of them are MTB riders. You can actually se Brian Lopez in that video.

    A friend of mine was in that video. He's a "roadie" and can whip your fat butt on a hardtain down any DH run, SMT . At the time he was racing for subway. He made it to the second or third to last heat on an unmodified road bike with a TT helmet and no pads... like most of the MTBers were wearing. He was sponsored by yeti for a few years before he went pro on the road... so i guess it depends on what "roadie" in particular you're talking about...

    Since when did newbie dh guys think they were cool enough to comment on other aspects of cycling that they're not fit enough to participate in? That would be Brian Lopes, not Lopez, btw.

    Tuna is frackin sick

    That road drops right down from the top of Fernwood onto PCH... go check it out some time. It's the scariest road decent in the Santa Monicas, and one of the gnarliest I have ever done. The road is narrow and most of the outside corners are off-camber over a 200ft ravine. Super fun.

    If you're fit enough to stay in the group on a climb you can pedal away from a "lot" of roadies on a descent.

    "It's really cool" When Roadies come check out the real action on the DH boards.
    "It's really cool" The way Roadies clean up the street like that!
    Hey i sold my full face helmet to a Roadie-O .

    Since forever

    That race was a couple years ago, but the TDF crowd descends the stages in the apls just like that... except not in a 4-by race. The do that with 200 riders on their tails.

    It's totally nuts to watch.

    I wonder how the top DHers can do flat out...

    beacuse these roadies can do this:
    Hunter, Simmons, Berrecloth, Watson,Vanderham, Semenuk, Schley, Gulevich, Bourdon, Smith, Moreland, Shandro, Boyko... Bieber.

    I would not judge anyone simply because of what they ride... that would be very un-cool.

    Everyone who rides deserves a few cool points.
