    Exciting race to watch (all WC DH races are), but personally I thought that course was lame AF. So much pedaling and jumping, and virtually no tech at all.

    Agreed. The woods sections were decent, but short. A lot of people were acting like the top section was rowdy, but it was only rowdy because the soft berms were fucked with brake bumps. Which makes for a challenging course, but not really an interesting one.

    Kinda gutted for Dak. He still had a heck of a weekend.

    The woods section that I thought was really WC worthy was shot from the side and probably made it look a bit easier than it was.

    formerly an ambassador for a few others, but the ski industry is... interesting.
    Fukt: a very small amount of snow.

    Less chatter here now because people are not paying for the races as much?

    $10 with ads.
    $16 no ads.
    No confusion about what I’m getting.
    It works.
    Not perfect, but smooth enough and reasonable enough to tolerate.

    I paid the $16 and now I have an excuse to rewatch Sopranos, The Wire, and actually get through Succession.

    We got that promo deal a couple months ago and pay $9/mo with no ads… and my wife and I watch Max more than anything else already. It’s nice the BR sports add-on free trial has continued so long into the season.

    Oh, and Hardline is next week on Red Bull…. Wasn’t it typically later in the fall?

    I came to post the same thing... they can't actually expect all the riders to hit that, right?

    BTW, did you see the video of the guy who bailed and crashed? Fuuuuck.

    Jim Monro. Got super lucky. PB and IG comments are wild. That feature is just stupid dangerous. Gee shouldn't be allowed to design things for....pretty much anyone who wants to live past 40.

    I’ve been seeing clips of that on ig for a couple of days starting w the concussion guy. That jump is fucking insane. The gap to get on the ramp is pretty huge but doesn’t even factor in

    It's insane.

    Sounds like they're gonna tame the lip and maybe the compression from the in-run too, and probably add a net of some sort. Kinda can't believe the guinea pigging happened without a net but no-one made those guys do it I guess. IDK what kind of agreement the Athertons have with Kerr but he's some sort 'official guinea pig', and he'll do damn near anything. He's got a lot of confidence but also the skills to back it up it seems. I felt like Jones had a lot more respect reluctance about the jump. Kerr did say on IG that Gee made him the most scared he's ever been. Everyone's lucky, especially Munro, that it didn't go worse for him. Easily could have IMO.
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow, and flying through the air

    I hate to say it, but to me it seems like the type of thing they’re doing for clicks, with no real intention of including it in the actual course.
