    Darn, those guys have super human skillz! You gotta be a really smooth rider to do that; props to both Lopes and Fabien for bringing a bow & arrow to a gunfight. But with the right skills, you definitely can do a lot of damage with a bow & arrow.

    Saw Lopes out at the Worlds yesterday taking the HD down the track during the DHI practice - he had a helmet cam strapped on so we may see some footage at some stage with a bit of luck.
