MTB's version of the
Meh.. Even with Nico riding Enduro looks absolutely rubbish on screen
You sir, dont have a ****ing clue about mountainbiking...
The **** have you ever done on a bike?
ha ha.. Moar skids and wheelies than you
Enduro looks ****, why does this enrage you?
He could be on a tricycle, I still love watching Nico ride. He makes the other two guys with him (one of whom is SRAM's product manager) look like stiff legged clowns. He's crazy....and he doesn't skid.
I never said anything about the amount of skids and wheelies Ive done, but Nico Vouilloz would ride circles around youre skids and wheelies and would look a hell of a lot better on any bike then you would.
So tell me again, why does enduro look like ****?
FFS of course Nico skids, he wheelies too
everybody skid n wheelie!
no he doesnt he never skids and he only rides DW bikes and he loves evil and steve peat and maxxis tires and would never ride a 29er
WTF does this even mean?!?
That's a video of one of the fastest riders ever tearing up what appear to be tasty trails.
What exactly "looks" wrong about it?
Got a friggin hot ass in a speedsuit too.
white and blue is so slimming
If only I looked as ****ty on any bike...
Jesus, everyone knows nico rode bikes fast in the 90s.
Those trails he was riding in that vid made him look like a goon. Not because he's a goon, but because switchbacks are the burps and farts of the devil that defoul humanity and make even the best intentioned riders in the world look like fixie hopping homos. It's not 'enduro' it's just riding a bike down a trail built by goats running away from sabertooth tigers in two bazillion BC in prehistoric france. Long before IMBA came along and showed us how to build things like ladder bridges and teeter totters.
I was expecting the monolith from "2001" to make a cameo
I'm just here to say that watching nico ride a bicycle is one of my most simple, yet great pleasures in life.
I'm not real happy about doing this but you really want to see a washed up (oops.....'retired') guy destroy some terra firma?
Wrap your head around that little bit 0:32 seconds in
(hey at least he has his shirt on)
That beats confining a beautiful skinsuit beast like nico on some goat trail with turns so tight that even squirrels have to skid through them.
I've ridden that trail a ton, and he is going approximately mach stupid that whole video. God damn.
i'm not completely ashamed to admit i was in a 'lopes mood' yesterday and watched that video like 10 times in a row.
that's OBVIOUSLY sped up, you can tell because of trees, and ENDURO.
is blopes racing ENDURO this year? He's kind of a monster.
in an incredible hulk, no shirt monster kind of way
a few, yes - and he's not happy that you don't have to pedal up to the timed stages during practice.
I think his slo-mo speed is faster than me going flat out in real time.
kidwoo is a lopes stalker
whoa whoa whoa, anne caro is back racing enderpo too? that's really, really awesome.
I'm just looking for a place to park.
Not even Nico can make XC lids with goggles look cool.
That move where he rode down the rock face instead of down the stairs next to it was pretty cool.
I don't get what he's doing at 4:42. Did he intentionally lock up the rear wheel when manualling through the rocks? (honest question)
04:42 - that wheel never stops spinning.
You're right. Optical illusion or something. I see now that the logo keeps moving
The video of him riding the 2 main trails in that undisclosed location that was posted on vital a few months back always awe me. He's riding some of the roughest, fastest, steepest, most techy DH trails on his xc bike, with an xc helmet, no knee pads, and shredding it faster than a WC pro I've seen riding them in person. His bike handling skillz are just unreal.
Wasn't she beating half the men's pro class in Trans Provence last year? I'm convinced she's an XY female or something.
Yeah Nicos pretty good. I guess. But..can you imagine how good he'd be on 650b?
Then he'd be holy****balls**** fast. Not just frenchguyfast.
This "enduro" thing is goddamn stupid. It's XC descending and occasional climbing nothing more than that. Someone just decided it needed a new name to hype it.
NSS! But at the end of the day, who gives a flying feck what they call it? The cool new thing that all the bike companies are racing to design new stuff for (I admit most are just re-labelling) is having fun on a bike by riding the fun bits fast and still being able to get it done without a shuttle. Its almost like they could have called it Mountain biking.
