It's time for the grand finale to a week of racing - the Crankworx Rotorua Downhill. Taking place on the legendary World Championships track from 2006, the downhill track is everything the racers want and is one of the sickest courses you will find. Grassy turns, big senders, steep off cambers and roots galore - this is not one to be missed. Brett Tippie is on hand to take you through the key parts of the track.

 Much better course then UCI and a much better course walk by Tippie!!!

 True on the course walk. For UCI coursewalk we have Wyntv which is more about sticking gross things in peoples face than about the track. Fun and games, it has its place. For a real course breakdown (which I enjoy) we have inside the tape, but he doesnt do WC DH. So that leaves us with Cathrovision. I think with a bit more on camera personality training Cathrovision could be a hit. PB should hire him and let him hang with Trippie and Nyquist so a little bit of crazy rubs off on him. IMO

 Seems like Tippie calmed down a notch which is still light speed for me.........Love his energy, I have none, so I am always intrigued with high energy folks......YT should lock him up for a while, great marketer and great knowledge.....

 Claudio. Get your a$$ in gear. Tippie is killing it with this track preview.
It gives you a good perspective of the track. Walked it today as the rain was starting to fall. It's gonna be gnarly tomorrow

 Hey @pinkbikeaudience can we get a compendium of video clips of those bad @bretttippie jokes from over the years? I love ‘em!

 Tippie is the man! Super cool, humble, and knowledgeable. I learn a lot by watching him do a course walk.

 That course looks rowdy a f. NGL, this is quite a lot better than Claudio shouting and screaming (and I used to love that).

Those jumps look HUGE.
