 Did expect some hardcore action, left me kind of disappointed :/ too bad, since they are some of my favorite riders to watch, especially fearon and ropelato.

 Apparently one of the drones hit Ropalato when this was being filmed in early dev.

 1:24 cutting off Sam Hill eh.. ballsy. He must not be aware that Sam Hill doesn't pass he rides through people, vaporizing them on impact..

 I want to ride there so much that it hurts. Knowing that I probably never will, makes it hurt even more.

 @WAKIdesigns: Not that easy I'm afraid. I have no job and the only chance for me is the local factories. Unfortunately they only hire through recruiting companies, which so suitingly only hires immigrants. In short words, I'm a forced criminal worthless piece of shit.

 @emponix: how dare you ride mountain bikes if you are poor? It's like taking a bus to the golf club.

 @WAKIdesigns: That's my style Smile I'm kind of a hard dude so mountainbiking fits me perfectly. I clear climbs on my alu endurobike almost the same pace as the xc guys on thier carbon rockets. I can be hard on myself out there and gentle to other people the rest of the time, slowly becoming a gentleman. Best of all, it's cheaper than golf!

 @emponix: get a job dude Smile

 No matter what you say, golf is better than frisbee golf.

 @RedBurn: ADHD since birth made me fail everything in school, teachers calling me stupid and idiot didn't help. I couldn't read a single page and understand what I was reading until a couple years ago. Now I can channel my focus, but it only works when I'm alone in the room. Easypeasy right? Smile

 @WAKIdesigns: Agreed. Frisbee golf is like Yoghurtquarg, totally unnecessary.

 @emponix: Sell the bike, get a working-holiday visa, find a job in Q-town, get a used bike, ride like there’s no tomorrow!

 @WAKIdesigns: frisbee golf is great. Get super stoned and drunk and walk around in the woods. Was the only activity I could do the summer I broke my wrist!

 @WAKIdesigns: ah, yer obviously not using one of the new 28.99 frisbees.... get one of them suckers and take frisbee golf next level...

 @ColquhounerHooner: nah I’m an old school disc golfer for life. All the new standards and shit are a joke! Haven’t bought new disc in 10 years!
