2014 Specialized Enduro SX - Vital MTB
Mitch Ropelato, Luca Shaw, & Walker Shaw talk about the new Specialized Enduro SX and then shred the absolute piss out of the Sea Otter slalom course. Riding starts at 1:50.
It’s been like 20 minutes since we’ve posted any Aaron Gwin news, so here’s the most butthurt, passive aggressive release imaginable from Trek World Racing. Their caption to the clip is:
"We have been working on a documentary style video of Aaron, due for release next month, which we now have to shelve. Here is a relevant excerpt from that video."
-Trek World Racing
We should probably note that TWR is not Trek, and that Trek is probably not pumped on this approach.
EDIT: Annnd it’s down. Should have saved it, sorry. Essentially the vid was Gwin talking about being pumped to sign his letter of intent (he calls it his contract as well as his letter of intent), and saying he’s into the team/bike/etc… All the stuff you’re supposed to say when you’re sponsored by someone.
Jarrett Edit: aaand someone saved it, then re-uploaded. Shitty quality but yeahhhh.
WTF, Aaron Gwin goes to Specialized. Specialized for the win with this one.
Sam Hill Farewell
Bunch of old Sam Hill footage & dudes at Specialized sharing their thoughts on him leaving the team. Pretty classy piece to put together for sure.
The P-Slope, I didn’t even come close to watching this because I am in the middle of hanging out with some friends. This is just an excuse to publicly say the p-slope looks like a ***dobermann. That is all. Let me know how it is.
Brian edit: Wink definitely means a Dobermann, not a Dartmoor.
Wink edit: BP is the godfather of onlymtb
Andrew Bigelow gettin sweet for Specialized. He gets down on some gnarly looking jump, pretty rad.
The Coastal Crew is on Specialized
I think it’s safe to say that Specialized responded to Scott taking Fairclough here. Good on them, and I’m excited to see what the Coastal Crew can do this year with this level of support. Oh, and the intro vid is pretty solid too. Looks like their video rigs are dialed in; love those wide cable shots.
Monster Energy / Specialized - World Cup 1
I am a big fan of Troy.
Sam Hill and Troy Brosnan riding some downhill for Specialized. Watch it, love it, good production for sure.
Mike Montgomery + Specialized
Mike sending in some compound. That one jump looked like a monster and he for sure took some bad slams on it. Couple of the 7’s looked like they could have hurt. Stoked to see Mike getting the support he deserves.
