 I'd love to see ghost riders of the top 5 DH guys every round, 5 riders on screen at once would be maybe a bit busy but interesting still

 REALLY like seeing the overlay clips with 2 riders being compared side by side. This gives a perspective that is usually reserved for pros or other folks that can see this at full speed. For mere mortals like me it is mind blowing to see how a tiny difference means 0.2 seconds. Please do more!

 Would love to see some slow-mo of line choices through nasty rock gardens. It's interesting watching how bike handling, line choice, and suspension come into play for those situations.

 Great to see others catching up on the line choice analysis, we've been doing this stuff for 4 years. www.pinkbike.com/video/450744 moving beyond line choice analysis, we can now track riders and get data at every single point through any race stage - DH, XC and enduro. If you like the line choice stuff, check out some of our other videos.

 Their Youtube channels contains a lot of "tips" videos.

You might want to take a look Wink

 So sick! What the second clip doesnt show you is that the long way round that tree allows for a couple of pedal strokes up to the point where riders rejoin after the inside line. This could lead to higher speeds before the next turn
