 Glad I read the comment section... My first thought was a 5-minute long compilation of Instagram-like slow motion videos without music so I wasn't going to bother. Boy was I wrong! Definitely shouldn't have judged beforehand because that was a banger of a video. Basically a mini-movie. Well done!

 If we can't get good live coverage, at least we can get good slow-mo coverage!

 Sad but true.
But I still need to say it: Dear EWS managers, the EWS coverage is simply poor compared to most other sports. Sorry, but a 15 minutes after the fact video simply does not cut it anymore in 2021.

 1:08, the flex of that zeb fork is crazy !!

 Hell yeah, It blew my attention too.

 Is it the ZEB flexing or is the headset bearing cartridge loose? That seems like so much flex it’s hard to believe the steerer was that compliant.

 Hill can flex anything. And this drop is scary as hell, you need to be 100% precise in terms of length and direction as you are cutting out a steep S-Bend with some nasty rocks at the exit. I bent a Boxxer at the exit (where they placed the red matt) doing it in an IXS DH Cup back in 2005 or so.

 That’s not flex. It’s compliance. It’s what we want. Like Brawndo.

Seriously though some of those rear ends flex like mad too.
