 Surprised by the number of guys standing trackside _just_ off the racing line. How hard is it to just take another step aside?

 I was a volunteer on this race. I agree with your comment. However discussed about it with some top pilotes and all told me that it's more or less the same everywhere (tracks/countries).
Just a question of education? I don't know, but a guy like Loic Bruni for example is always going out of the track if he wants to stop...

 @Jeff197206: yeah I guess I’m just surprised that they’re not more courteous overall to each other during practice sessions. But hey, if it’s the same for everyone, then it can’t be that big a deal.

 …still waiting for Friday Fails. Or is that part of the subscription?

 Well since Outside wants to eliminate the community part in Pinkbike I assume that Friday Fails won't exist anymore as people have to actually upload them

 Maybe Les Gets has spoiled me but this track looks average at best

 Agreed. Still like the final, quite different from what we are used to.

 @PTyliszczak: don't talk too much about game monetisation methods, else we'll have to collect articles, write ups and videos through random loot boxes

 fortunately the track has changed a lot between the training (in video) and the finals, thanks to heavy rain Wink

 YouTube is free to watch. Not much gnar. Mostly motorway. Lots of pedaling.

 You must test this track and you will see the gnar. It’s fast and technical, the roots are deep. And there is no grip.

 Some spots he was going so fast it looked like the video was sped up, yet other spots almost made it seem he was sitting down and coasting.
