That spinning stoppie was actually super sick

Awesome preview. Love Marco's narrative. Really helps describe the dynamics of the race and how the course affects that.
(May 25, 2018 at 10:26)
Marco is so much fun to watch. So stylish.
(May 25, 2018 at 22:53)
Marco is really talented and open minded on a bike, he mixes different skills and always ready to share his stoke with the others. A true pro mountainbiker.

Thanks for this PB.

did that girl say to Marco "can I have your number?" LOL
(May 25, 2018 at 13:17)
I thought that as well!
(May 25, 2018 at 13:26)
Hahaha if only. She said "you don't have a number," referencing his plate. Could actually result in a fine I think!
(May 25, 2018 at 17:00)
did marco offer her a friend too for could be a 3some offer..lol
(May 25, 2018 at 17:28)
Haha yeah no plate number. "Yeah but I am a friend" response was awesome. This looks like a brutally fun course.

T'was a UCI official asking. All racers and team support are supposed to have plates during the practice sessions, so they can control who's riding on course (it's technically a closed course). Probably also a liability thing so Joe Schmoe spectator isn't trying to ride course and throw elbows with racers in practice.

That looks like a fun loop and would be a great ride with a couple of mates on a Saturday morning, last place pays for breakfast. Bring back the baggie shorts Marco. I love these course previews.

Ooh, Ric sprinted too soon at the finish--would've had him beat otherwise, definitely.

What no uplift , some call it cycling
(May 27, 2018 at 2:04)
These XC loops are not easy. And also some tricky loose lines and corners.. and those rock gardens on hard tails!! :o... There is quite a lot of riding talent in XC!

Solved- had to switch to full site to access the “X” acknowledgement.

Get Claudio in on the XC course preview action along with Marco and Ric and I could watch all day.

What a crappy video player.
(May 25, 2018 at 23:59)
