Pretty cool teaser, although I am getting to where I like videos with a little content intermixed with the hucking these days...

My " epo!!!!!! " comment was made as a social joke. Oprah got it.

I agree, I would hope that the down river race part of our sport is way to small of a segment to lead to any true doping.

I would say the tendency would be to light up before a big drop, not shoot up.

I wasn't trying to imply anything about Jackson. I have only been around EJ and Dane at races, a clinic and studying their training vids. EJ seems to be a totally straight up hard working guy and Dane was just a little kid. Oh...and intense in a layed back kayaker sort of way. Lol.

Just a reaction to Lance who while never seeming straight up, had some good rides. When I was racing I remember when everything (training, the group I was in, the day clicking and no drugs) just peaked. So I thought it was possible. Then, I remember Greg Lemond wondering why he was no longer competitive at the start of the Indurain era.

If your company depended on it there would be some temptation, but I don't know why anyone would risk their health to cheat. Anyway, top four must say something about the boat. And lay off the dope before the big drop, save it for after!

The only doping EJ is doing is Ibuprofin. Sweet vid. The drop at the 2:15 mark with the wall slam is awesome.

Phil, totally agree. That is the coolest f'n move I have seen in a long time. I am out at the JK factory for meetings at the moment, and had dinner with EJ last night... he was saying that without question that is his favorite of all time creeking move. Apparently it's a lot more tricky then it looks, you can piton super easy if you don't have the correct bow angle to the left with a bit of a tricky/sticky hole just before that wall move.

I don't often put up video's, but this one really got my attn.

Snow may be a bit skinny this year, but I can't wait for kayaking season!!!
