    For adrenaline heads: 08 MTB DH world champs

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Heres a link to Sam Hills DH run at the 08 world champs... Ive never seen anything like it. The track may just have been made of asphalt, be cause he sure didnt seem to notice any of the bumps. The commentators are brits and their lad, Steve Peat had just gone down before Sam (an Aussie from WA). Peatie has never won a world champ, but has lots of seconds. This year he was on fire and looked unstoppable. Then came Sams run. The commentary gives an impression of just how fast he is going... until...

    I turned the sound down and just watched the guy ride. He really was in an awesome rhythm going down. Talk about wild!

    Not often, only Sam Hill could do that, and there arent many/if any other riders with the amount of talent he has.

    Check this out (excuse the music). The most amazing third ever.

    On this day all of the quick riders qualified slowly so they would race early and avoid the wet conditions. Not Sam Hill

    Sorry, I got a bit carried away, this is Mr Kohi. Mt Bikes are to me what coffee is to her.

    Kohi
    Sam Hill is the best
    Not only are the wheels an extension of his body
    But if one takes note!
    He rides with the balance of a hummingbird
    Take note of his head in comparison to his body
    By keeping the head so steady (not an easy feat) it gives him so much balance and peripheral vision to aid him in getting those amazing times
    But fearless talent is also in abundance

    Viva Sam Hill
