 Yup. The Walton(Walmart) family has pumped millions of dollars into parks, trails and features all around that area.

 Deep / tight probably meaning faster on smaller wheels is my guess.

 One of my NICA students is a successful BMX racer. There was a .01 with him on his 20" race bike and my 26" DJ.

 I'm confused. I kept hearing "mountain bike", but didn't see a single one, which makes sense, since they're riding a PAVED loop. Those things will never be used for mountain biking. And yes, I'm aware of what BMX means. A 26" park/dj bike is just a freestyle BMX bike, but with dimensions that fit a full grown adult better. That being said, even my 22" wheels feel too big for small bowls compared to the 20s. I wonder if anyone has a 22" or 24" setup there?

 @holt1997 @jacobite321

I believe it's because Red Bull won't pay for the women's winner to go because there was less than 10 women participating in the Glasgow event.

To be fair though, it's not exclusive to the women, it's in the rules that if there is less than 10 participants in a category then they will not win a paid for ticket to the world final. It just so happens that there was less than 10 women at the event. It was the same for many of the other qualifiers though.

 @whitetux:
To be fair Liv could have covered it as I believe she is a brand ambassador for them.
