 I need to change my underwear just watching that. The fear in top pro's eyes watching other riders. I know Gee has very extensive bmx/ DJ background but never seen him dump a backflip that massive. This is going to be bonkers.

 That is the best bits of behind the scenes all season. Matt Jones is a maniac for hitting that on a slope style hardtail. Can’t wait for the final.

 Everyone: ‘hardline is the most bad ass dh track’

Matt Jones: ‘I’ll take my jump bike’

 I like the analogy "waiting to come back down so they can continue racing" I couldn't imagine hitting something so big where I'm waiting to come back down!

 I'm wondering if someone will somehow cut off the side of the lip and squash it during their race run.

 @brianpark: Yeah, as you know, that's what a DH racer would do. Maybe they aren't allowed to somehow.
  • 1 0
 @brianpark: I don't think they will. the angles are wrong, coming off that big left turn at that speed trying to turn tight right to cut it would be to hard. I have no evidence to support this ???? but that would be my thought.

 The magnitude of some of the features there is frightening.

 A pity to see only 3 frenchies participating, Vigé, Fayolle and Payet. Where are the others? The championships season is over now, come on guys! Allez allez!!! Do you know if the number of riders is limited for the Hardline?
