    It's awesome that CRC are carrying on their tradition of putting up wicked Web edits. This is gonna be a good year for them I think!

    I don't know if it was missing on the Specialized... but he seems not to have skipped a beat going onto this bike (granted this is only what, less than a minute of footage?). the longer chainstays don't seem to have stopped him manualling and generally manhandling the bike and popping about!

    Imho, sub 17 chainstays are kinda overrated, much more stability with a slightly longer CS and with the right geo should have no impact on cornering. I think we will see only good things this coming season from Mr. Hill. Would love to see him get clipped in too!

    Surprised to hear Page say "Absolute Legend"

    He does not just throw that phrase out there for anyone...;)

    Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. I kind of want to see what Gwin can do on the Demo, I'll be eagerly waiting for a Specialised edit.
