 Qualies on a workday in the middle of nowhere plus what sickboy said. The scene is very low key. The curious should go to the Kamikaze games there in mid-September....see some "legends" and drink some beers. Oh and race.

 Wow, seriously - Jill Kintner up almost 10 seconds from the next competitor, on a course it took her under a minute to complete. Class of her own. We get to see her and Bryn out training in Bellingham once in a while, and they're always super focused, yet friendly. Nice to see good people doing well.

 @aoneal There's never been a huge spectator crowd for MTB races at Mammoth, even back into the early/mid 90's when Mammoth was "the" place. Better back then than now but still not a large crowd. Small local population base and soCal 6 hour drive away doesn't encourage much in the way of spectating.

 Pfffffft 4 hours if you don't slow down through the towns. Yew, aaaand ticket.

 Absolute untruth. 8k race entrants in its heyday, and you had to park all the way down the mountain in that 90's era. And the pits were at capacity, trucks and box vans as far as you could see, each paying a couple grand to park.

 Best dual slalom ever was Norba '02 in the Superpipe with a triple step-up.

 That video had the most annoying audio ever. From the air horn in the beginning to the stupid heckler in the middle, i had to watch the whole thing muted

 Not a fan of the obnoxious heckling.

 No kidding. I absolutely would have laid hands on that douche.

 @dtm1: I noticed the heckling at some of the Fontana Winter Series events and was thinking it was limited to just thosee events. Bummer to hear it at at a National level event. Things like that make our sport come off low class. Ross do your part and don't include that garbage in your videos. Cheering and supporting riders for sure....heckling no.

 Im glad i wasnt the only one cringing at that dudes commentary. It was air pollution

 Don't get me wrong, the filming was great and I appreciate the coverage

 They're much better at heckling in the northwest. For qualifying it's limited to a few cameras so we can get you the action edited sooner. Unfortunately, some good clips have some terrible background stuff. Play some Iron Maiden with the sound off haha. Cheers

 You guys would be smart to show some of the new up and comers in the sport. Don't just focus on the top few guys that everyone expects. Become the site that supports and promotes all riders, no matter what level your riding. All it takes is a handful of images and posting the final results.
