Sometimes old dogs don’t need to learn any new tricks. At forty years old, Brian Lopes can teach today’s crop of racers a thing or two. This GoPro footage was taken during a practice run for the Crankworx Whistler Air DH. A race run down the venerable A-Line. He came in second, 3.75 seconds behind Canadian Steve Smith, a rider 17 years his junior!
Watch legend John Kirkcaldie throw down some old school DH style on the famously rock Tunnel trail, found in Santa Barbara.
