 Awesome coverage. Course looks amazing and there seems to be a rad vibe amongst the competitors. I love that pro mountain bikers can be competitive without being cutthroat.

"A couple of pedal strokes and a yank." haha

 The yank was crucial

 Hahaa The Bulldog at the end spraying champagne

 He looked hungry.

 Where's the flow?

Oh, yeah. It's downhill.

 Damn thats pretty impressive of Hannah to get third on a track he hasnt run.

 Man, that first save was beauty !! That first crash looked horribly nasty though ! Can't believe he is ok.
  • + 5
 I was thinking he had a broken collarbone since he said 'a little bit of a bump sticking out here' and tapping his shoulder. If he walked away unscathed that is pretty amazing.
  • + 6
 @bigdood: or a shoulder separation, just based on where he tapped his shoulder.
  • + 4
 Definitely looked like an ac joint dislocation or separation

 I broke my frame on that last jump a few weeks ago..
  • + 35
 was it the couple of peddles or the yank you didn't pull off?

 So rad! Sick looking track.

 I think when Tracy says possible she means definite. Proper head assessments need to start happening, it's just not worth the risk.

 I see glove sales in NZ are still at all time lows! Such a sick track!
  • + 4
 Not sure if a high enough proportion of the population has the usual five fingers. Possibly a commercial risk.

 Brook mac huckin is always a favorite!
  • + 4
 plows through stumps like they're braking bumps
  • + 7
 @tracyhannah get well.

 Where were Eddie & Wyn? Thought both Masters brothers would have been competing in both DH events & the enduro?? Thought Wyn TV would have been covering Crankworx too!

 this is how DH races should always be presented on videos.
  • + 3
 longer tho

 Rowdy looking track! Yes
  • + 10
 At 0.30 the fast panning shot as the rider whips past at light speed and drops about 30ft vertical into hero dirt? Yeah that was sick!
  • + 3
 @ehtikhet: That 30sec mark looked like it was at warp speed indeed. Just huck the shit out of it and hope the suspension holds at the bottom!
  • + 4
 @ehtikhet: the only rider that can smash like that...the Bulldog
  • + 3
 dude that was a concussion if ive ever seen one
  • + 1
 Go home Tracey. You're concussed Frown
