Amazing!
I was wondering what he was running for air pressure.
Definitely lower pressure, guessing 70-80 psi vs 100-110 normal road tire pressure.

Clipped in would actually work against you with some of those moves.
Need to be able to move around and be able to bail.

Absolutely agree! That's what seemed so amazing at first when I thought he was clipped in.
I've actually fallen off a 6 ft ledge into a stream because of clipless pedals. LOL

My first time out on clipless pedals, I came to stop and fell over.    Couldn't get my foot out.. :doh:

Indecision is the tactical key to victory it allows the flexibility to not adhere to any formulated planning

turns out he had a life threatening injury on Sept 1st this year. He broke his back and damaged his spinal cord when he misjudged a landing. This is ironically the second time he's broken his back. Hope he pulls through, but the reports seem to indicate the injury was quite serious.

That was awesome. Sad to hear about his injury, but that was an incredible way to bounce back.
