 Those rock tunnels are so tight and sketchy looking

 @ohrourkee: rowdier than Leogang ..

 Course looks sick. Rocks with plenty of flow. I would definitely clip my bars and probably never get out of those tunnels. Robert

 I'm having a hell of a time trying to judge how narrow those really are with the wide-angle lens distortion. They look narrower than XC bars, but the riders are coming through them at a decent clip so there's gotta bit a bit of room for error. Just wish I could tell how much.

 @big-red: having been down them...less than a meter wide. They are legitimately tight. The second gap has a nasty little crack in the rock 3/4 the way down that makes the gap much harder

 That's some Millennium Falcon maneuvers. I think I'm bruised from watching.

 Cool video, ace riding, amazing place! Does anyone know how many runs riders get at these sort of legs before race day? Are they shuttled for practice or is it a case of practice as much as you have energy for (to pedal/push up)? My understanding is it’s the latter, but it blows my mind how fast they can ride at first sight or from just 1-2 practices. Riding fast onsight freaks me out. What’s round the next corner?!
  • + 6
 1 lap...but you can hike sections obviously.
  • + 3
 @MikeyMT: cheers, that takes skills...
  • + 5
 I've been riding and racing for a long time so I'd consider myself a fairly competent rider, but the speed he kept through those tech sections made me feel like I have no idea how to ride a bike. Impressive!

 Keegan has got to be the best value for fantasy EWS. His results and potential should def bump him up in ‘salary’, but hey, I aint complaining. Kick some a$$, Keegan!

 Think short bars might comeback in to fashion..
  • + 6
 that is one rough section...do 800mm bars fit through there?
  • + 4
 Yea Keegs! Only thing missing from that madman riding is the maniacal laughter at all times
  • + 5
 section beginning at 1:20 is absolutely f*ucked
  • + 3
 Just ask the step in my collarbone how much room there is in the ‘cracks’
  • + 3
 Was that Maes with another hand injury?
  • + 10
 Slowed it down to half speed, looks like they were just doing some helmet adjustments. Don't scare me like that, I need him for my fantasy team.

 Wild Man Keegan Wright getting rowdy!
  • + 3
 Holy sht, that is some badass riding!
  • + 2
 The rock garden on shear pin is brutal!
  • + 1
 I won't be attacking that trail without my DH bike. Those guys/girls definitely have massive balls
  • + 3
 That terrain is brutal.
  • + 1
 Was that filmed using a gimbal or Go Pro Hero 7 built in stabilisation?
The track is tight af.
  • + 2
 Looks damn fun
  • + 0
 Wouldnt a DH bike be more appropriate? 70% full downhill and very rough.
