Pure, unadulterated arrogance.

Because the high pivot location.
My understanding is that on a single pivot bike, like the new Supreme DH V4, a high pivot location results in a better arc for the rear wheel to react to the ground. The trade off is that it's very susceptible to chain tension issues. I think under tension, the swingarm is harder to compress, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
The idler pulley on the swingarm removes/reduces the effect of chain tension from the suspension function.
I wonder how many years (months?) his knees will hold up for? Cool video though.
"It’s impossible to argue that these riders aren’t incredibly skilled and ballsy". Well fair enough, but they won't be ballsy for long…
Is it just me, or does the marking on the bar in the bar/stem photo make it look like the bar is way off to the rider's right?
Tell you what Malcolm, you go and start your own website and forum community and live your little PC life there. This is Cam's site and he can run it how he likes. Step down? Are you for real? Go away.
I took it as a pretty clear acknowledgement that the guys riding Rampage, skilled as they may be, are taking some huge risks to progress the sport. There's a very real element of injury at Rampage…
I'd argue the sport does need Napalm back. Sure he might not be racing or winning anymore, but a lot of DH has become quite dull. I think it's why everyone seems to be mostly excited about Ratboy doing so well this year. The Palm could help make DH 'cool' again, instead of just being popular.
Kona = killing it!
That needs to be about four minutes longer. Awesome riding.
No Vouilloz? He started racing this weekend, but he's not even on the results sheet anymore…
