 Seeing him rip down a track again is the sports highlight of 2020 for me for sure.

 Lots of people say things like unbelievable... but to me, that was legendary unbelievable - if that’s not a video to NEVER GIVE UP, nothing is.

 That track looks like a horrible time...mud hard enough to fly everywhere and hit you like paintballs, yet soft enough to clog the tires...the struggle to grab the right rut, and the consequences of grabbing the wrong one...glad I don't have to ride it!

 My thoughts exactly, looks rough as f*ck!

And what's the deal with the huge chasm?!

 That course has a bit of everything including evil fields of tree stumps. That looked like a decent gap towards the end.

 That looked like a HUGE gap towards the end instead of taking the bridge go-around. In the slippery conditions, the take off and landing must've taken nerves of steel! :-O

 I’m just so very happy to see Brook racing again! I know it’s not his first race back, but so what! Bulldog continues to inspire everyday!

 Can't imagine the strength it took for Brook to come back from that injury. And beyond that...also cannot imagine to then have the stones to attack a dh course again.

 He made that look easy considering a mountain of things against him. Legend amongst us.

 Man!! Absolutely thrilled to see the Bull Dog crushing runs again, it is both amazing and inspirational....I would love to see him win and take it all but pray he does not have a crash of any kind......or that any rider experience a crash, looks pretty dam rough..

 ok what's up with this geo restriction on rebulltv? Am I just finding this out the day before world champs? Am I going to be able to watch it???

 I think it's because in some countries other companies hold the rights for broadcasting the race. check pinkbike, they had an article somewhere which tells what countries can watch it on rb tv

 You might have to use a VPN. Pinkbike posted a totally-not-World-Champs-related article with completely coincidental timing on VPN setup the other day!
