    Yes GW I know that, posted the same clip on facebook a while back talking about skillful bails and close calls, me and one of the posters on this thread discussed his result, as was said at the time he’s a legend,

    That said, his riding on the DW Iron Horse Sunday was a joy to watch.

    This is what I would like to see from Hill, but I have my doubts about it happening any time soon on a Demo!

    Northwind last year was just intense from start to finish, it saw the demise of strategic power houses and the rise of talented supebly skilled wild cards, love it!

    Hard to see past Gwin for the overall….but i reckon there will be a few rounds where somebody younger will have a run that defies belief…once Hart, Brosnan etc get some consistency together they should be able to topple Gwin….just cant see it happening this year.

    Minaar and Atherton to have their usual good seasons….maybe taking 2nd and 3rd overall behind Gwin.

    I’m not even going to guess at what will happen, if hart was physically stronger he would be a match for gwin.

    That said gwin has come a long way in a short period of time and will more likely than not get better.

    The way I see it, this is good for promoting our culture and these riders are all doing a great job, regardless of anything else, let the best riders on the day win.

    It’ll be interesting to see how Jared Graves does too, I reckon he could go straight into the Top 10. Especially with the first race in SA.

    Eh? How well did he do at Ft William and Val di Sole? Two of the most punishing tracks on the circuit?

    I’ve chatted to an elite rider in a sling at a WC in Fr William. Built like a brick shit house. Know why he crashed? He couldn’t hold on anymore.

    I would like to see him on a session or a glory, something other than a demo.

    Really, a Glory… another bike the team had to a number of modifications to make it work at WC level and Hart rides a large IIRC. Someone has bought into the whole whichever wins Worlds is the best bike. 😉

    People said Peaty wouldn’t do well when he moved to Santa Cruz “oh noes! the orange is a single pivot and the v10 is VPP, he’ll never get on with that!!”

    Hill, when he was riding without fear, would have still done well on an old 222 – he’s done badly recently due to poor fitness (and too much partying at the end of 2010), injury (time off the bike) and general fear. Not sure if he’ll get over it but hope he does as that’s another rider who could win it on the day – the more in with a chance the better imo – more excitement!

    This is what I would like to see from Hill,

    So you’d like to see him push too hard, blow it in a corner it but still podium? but not any old corner just the ones you dictate to be worthy? 😕

    but I have my doubts about it happening any time soon on a Demo!

    FFS! your idea that it’s simply down to the bike is retarded!
    Go and actually look at the history and results of DH WC racing/racers/bikes over the last 20years

    To be fair, as Kaesae theories go it’s relatively sensible.

    You seem rather tense GW and perhaps as a result of that tension / sexual frustration, more cranky than normal.

    I’m not normally one for sharing, but in this case and because I believe it will help you, I will make an exception, would you like a
    suck of my bong?

    He maybe, but he is right. 🙄
