Internet Trolls. Rooty greasy with big gap jumps. Looks like a fun course. You could ride it on an Enduro bike just so much slower and get beaten up after one run.

Rode it once on an Enduro in the wet this year, it's not difficult to get down but as always difficult to go fast on. Still went over the bars at the step down (0:23) because I was told everything is rollable and I was stupid and just cruised everything without looking.

Damn Mick! That one highside gap up top was, uh, large.

Be like "Mick, can u f#*!ing slow down a bit, I'm tryin to film a course preview...........Mick............MIIIIICCCCKKKK"

For those who haven't ridden a newschool DH bike, you don,t know what your missing. I agree the tracks are getting more buff & flowy, but if you do have extra-chunky gnar trails near you try out a new shredsled. I'm still picking up the pieces of my blown mind from the first ride on a Gambler 29

I rode a 2020 Commencal for the day. First run back on my older V10 I went 3 seconds faster, and it was on a dh track. But the V10.5 is an incredibly fast bike.

Stop complaining about the track kudos to the organisers for making this happen its not better or worse than the same tracks every year on the wc circuit just be grateful theres a race in these crazy times

I am so surprised at the negativity around this track... I hate wood features with a passion, but the rest of this track looks unreal!
(Oct 3, 2020 at 15:48)
Wood features are back in I see. No chicken wire either.

I live tracks like this to ride, very difficult to carry speed, 1 mistake and it can take a while to get back on line. The right line will change as the roots get polished over the weekend by tyres. Flat turns over roots are where skill matters. Maybe it's because I'm not a great jumper but all these big jumps don't show how fast a rider is, just that all the pros can clear jumps I would be very scared of.

The track isn't the gnarliest as everyone can see. But it is a race there and we should be happy about every race this year!

Needs more boardwalk.

Dude is a living legend

Did you record the voice over after? Sounds echo-y
(Oct 3, 2020 at 13:11)
is there a live coverage?
(Oct 3, 2020 at 13:40)
wtf is up with all the board walk???

This course looks pretty boring. Imagine being a pro rider and being given a flat track with 30% 1 meter wide ladder bridges.
Rain will make this unridable at speed!
(Oct 3, 2020 at 11:29)
Proper DH is almost dead, all the pros talk about the tracks being bad, some leave the sport because its so far from what its essence needs to be/was.
This is a mellow bike park trail you could ride on a HT, not a rough af DH track where the 220mm f travel and 220mm rotors are needed.
At least we had Psychosis make a comeback

(Oct 3, 2020 at 10:12)
Yeah.. more like Enduro!
(Oct 3, 2020 at 10:35)
NO NO Enduro Trails are much harder. More roots more rocks and more corners.
(Oct 3, 2020 at 15:31)
: spot on.
This is bike park racing.
Enduro is gnar racing.
Track does look super fun in the dry, I bet it's not really that easy and the G outs in the turn s are pretty savage for us normal Joey's.

Its wasnt Enduro, but as someone on an Enduro bike scared the Dh elite, its was.... racing down a hill with some pedalling, pumping and endurance required. PMSL. Luck Jesse didnt take part, he could have won it for sure.
(Oct 3, 2020 at 9:05)
that's not a proper dh track...You don't need a dh bike to ride that stuff
(Oct 3, 2020 at 9:10)
Shut up, you tit!
(Oct 3, 2020 at 9:21)
Always love input from the armchair warriors - you'd definitely win if you were out there on your enduro bike!
(Oct 3, 2020 at 9:47)
Yeah you could ride pretty much anything with an S-Works Venge, but neither you nor the bike would exist after the attempt.
(Oct 3, 2020 at 14:05)
: how about you come to my local mountain, mont sainte anne, and see for yourself what a rela dh track is ? Mont sainte anne is legendary
(Oct 3, 2020 at 15:30)
You are right. You dont need a Dh bike to ride it. You could ride it on a hard tail with no problems.
But it's a race... so dh bike or modern enduro bike (not much difference, think the crankworks series showed us that and the EWS is another level of gnar compared to this).
