Not sure anyone noticed, but watching JS and other riders go through the whoops on this bike, it's ain't looking good. Maybe just stock suspension, but the front looks like it's diving way to much and the bike seems to push the rider way forward. Also there were some drop away jumps and the bike just didn't look all that impressive when they were landing. Not sure, but did anyone else notice the handling of this bike in the vids?
Possibility he was trying to punish the front end to see how it would do?
I like my 06, but it's like dating a supermodel compared to the "hot girl next door" 00 YZ 426 it replaced. Better looking and less weight, but waaaaaaaaaaaay more picky about everything, and never quite 100% happy.
