Complete with traffic, a crash, heavy breathing, and a couple pushes back up the trail for photos and checking lines.

 I got the video up quicker than usual so it's either watch it in 360p now or wait a little bit until it's finished processing!

 Third and most likely option: Watch it twice... at least.

 It's weird that it's been up for 7 hours and there's still no HD version... come on YouTube! Smile

 That was extremely fun to watch. I also realized that I am not in good enough shape to even practice enduro riding. Hustling up a steep and then hucking the bike over the tape to clear the line? Chaos in the gnar.

 Eats dirt hard, huffing and puffing. Still pulls out an interview for the camera. What a champ!

 Thanks Jesse. This was fantastic the way it is. Travelling in Nelson,BC and the dust here looks like that area. Best of luck and stay strong

 If you are riding dust in Nelson right now you're riding in the wrong spots!

 @disruptiveone: enjoy real dust riding there. Swansea, if you're shuttling is pretty wicked.

 @skiboot1: thanks. Rained last night and some more coming today so hopefully drainage is good and dust minimal. Appreciate it

 360p is unwatchable. Low definition TVs were seriously in the dark ages. Lol.

 I’d sooner read a book than watch anything in 360p

 @usedbikestuff: I'll dictate: he makes a left, then a right, then another left, followed by left. There are trees going by, he continues going down the hill. The background has mountains and more trees, there is tape around some trees. He makes a left then a right, then another right. More trees go by, the slows down, hard turn, speedy section after that. Left, left, left, right left. Hard turn, sound of tires, he picks back up some speed. He's about half way down the hill now. He is still turning left and right, more trees, more mountains in the background, couple french people. Someone yelling, more lefts and rights. He's at the bottom.

 Trying to watch in 360p was a refreshing reminder of what it’s like to have my parents show me videos on their Razor flip phones

 Does anyone know the brand and type of device Jesse has on the handlebar. I'm interested in what the pros are using. I'm assuming it logs his practice run stats
