 Absolutely! Everything about this was good. MTB at its roots, pros helping locals, relatively new event series, kids/teens/guys/gals, & camaraderie. Well done Niko & crew!!!

 Somebody needs to do an in depth on Isak. Got a top 10 in a World Cup DH, hopped on a borrowed Canyon and pulled it off after breaking his bike (I think a Pole brand).

He's got crazy skill but no full time sponsor and making his own DH rigs while holding it down on the other end as a Kona Ambassador?

 @blowmyfuse: he’s a talented guy for sure. Pretty quiet but skilled as hell on a bike.

 @blowmyfuse: I’ve met and rode with Isak and can’t agree more with u He is definitely under rated and deserves a full time sponsor he has a great attitude and is very humble

 Opening scene: 8 people packed together in a shuttle with no masks.

3:12: "The whole world is watching... so we gotta take all the precautions we can"

 Where was Gwin for this event? Would have thought he would be there, as well as other Americans like Jill Kintner.

 What about Yolanda? Isn't she in NC?

 @Snowrydr01: Don't think she's going to risk a shortened XC race season for a run down that course fresh off a life threatening injury.

 He never shows up to east coast races...not sure if it’s risk/reward or if he just doesn’t like east coast chunk

 I would assume it has more to do with exposure to risk ratio. If the event is able to offer enough exposure from the media and fans, then it's worth his time to attend. But this season makes it especially time sensitive to NOT risk anything in the lead up to the World Cup. Every racer is going for max exposure over, what is it again, 6 weeks this fall.

 @Don23: might have someone close ro him who is high risk for Covid. He's not a local racer. He's a World Cup multiple time champ
