 Nice to see a track preview that made me feel the terror of 'world cup level' riding! The speed the precision, the roots!

 He jumped over more than half of the roots. Where's the fun in that? I'd hit every single one!

 Did they change the rock garden and put some soil in there again? Last year it looked way more bumpy

 Rock garden is taped differently for this race compared to WC next week! It might have seen some rework though, hard to say anything from the video
