Aikona - aikona my maat, the mud sprays in line with the wheel at that range and hits the seat tube (or shock mounted in line wif the seat tube) - trust me it works pretty well even with mud on it.

I think it is the S-Works Epic Carbon Disc...

I prefer the S-Works Enduro SL Carbon when it comes to frame and rear suspension  design...looks like it is more solid and that it was designed by KONA ...hehehe ( ok sorry that slipped)

Oh, and here I was thinking it was because of the Sauser on the toptube... poor man had a bad turn of luck...

The 2008 Specialized will probably resemble the one that Sauser is riding now

Have a good look.

 

 

 

The Front shock "housing" is carbon. He had 2 of them on the epic. and they remove the labels on the wheels, It was DT Swiss stuff.

...

These guys only use 2 chain rings ... was watching some of his competition (Julien Absalon, Neno Schurter, Florian Vogel, Fredirk Kessiakoff...) this weekend at the 1st Swiss Power Cup for 2007, MAN they know how to ride (power up) up hills in the big blade.

 

I dont think they even used the small chain ring and they climbed +/-1290m on a 35 km course, where the course was  9 x 3.9 km lap (143 m ascent per lap)

 

He (Sauser's bike in picture) has a pretty large looking cassette which helps to use the big blade.

Quite amazing the way these guys power up hills in big blade (when I'm in granny Cry).

I only discovered my granny gear when I cleaned my bike this weekend. Never use it. Hell, I also only discovered my big ring this weekend. No, just kidding, but I spend most of my time in the middle.
