 I remember reading an interview with Cam Zink, where he said that in his opinion Kyle Strait was the most naturally talented rider he knew. Rad to see him take it, and T Mac in there as well.

 I remember Zink saying that in a cover article on Kyle in Bike Magazine from about 5 or 6 years ago, and I'm inclined to agree. He's been in the mix at the highest professional level since he was a grom, and has ridden every Rampage. Dude's a living legend.

 I really dislike this course. So far the best one has been the Rotorua one, but this one is a new low. One lane is clearly faster than the other, due to that stupid bowl feature. Going around the inside seemed to slow the riders down much more than that outside, and they come so close to colliding. Why couldn't they just do two huge berms there or something, just anything else.

 Pretty sure the Great British Empire came and colonised almost half the planet, but you don’t study history over there, as you have two tenths of f*ck all history. You’re trying to say you knobbed my dad? You’re a weird one. Let’s leave this here as it’s a waste of time. Plus, you can’t even seem to use capital letters. Showing your overriding intellect.
