Funny those guys love the High Roller 2 over the DHR2 and Minion. Always see their bikes with HR2s. I found the DHR2 to roll much faster and offer better cornering support while the HR2 was good for loose conditions but rolled slower and doesn't offer the same sturdy sideknobs.

27.5 only HR2 in 2.4 dual ply, DHF and DHR2 only 2.3 single plys (weird).

And it will be "proof" to all the forum nerds out there that the Demo must really suck… :rolleyes:

Hannah second again. Poor bastard has done everything but win in S.A. Hopefully it's not another Gwin winning every race again season. Bryceland may have taken it, if not for his chain coming off.

Wonder what the results would have looked like with Stevie racing? I hate to say it but its nice to have Gwin back on winning form.

I just like a shake up in the results. I'm not cheering against anyone, but it's exciting to see Gwin back on form, gutted that Mik didn't take the win and that we didn't see a mechanical free Bryceland get another podium. Happy to see Marcelo be on top, as well as Hill back on form. Expected performances from Blenki and Bruni. Where did Brosnan get the power? Great start to the season. Now we just have to wait a while until the next round. Thank goodness there's the EWS series as well, just as good as DH action imo.

^my sentiments, exactly. good to see things get changed up a bit on top, sucks for mik, cool to see ratboy (potentially) near the top, etc. Aaron isn't my favorite rider, but damn, he's in beast mode again. should be a fun season.

Is there a webcast for the EWS races as well? or is it just not practical due to the nature of the race?

than think again, how many cameras would you need to cover 2-3 stages per day?

My sentiments exactly
Brosnan's power was a surprise! Would like to see Blenki, Marcelo and Bruni all take a win this year

I really like watching Gwin. He's a bit of an oddity. He never really looks like he's going that fast compared to the other guys, but then when you see the split times, he's up. Mostly all the guys look like they are on the edge all the time and Gwin just looks like he's practicing. I guess for that matter Smith could be put into the same lot as well.
