 Feck.
Imagine how much better formula-one would be with randomly placed power poles scattered down the race track, and the odd ones that were considered a "risk" had a mattresses strapped to them.

 The video just doesn't do justice to how blown out the track gets and how fine and powdery the dust is!!

 Agreed! GC is awesome for the top third then you come out the trees and its bone dry and chopped to bits. He makes it look smooth as!

 honestly, this course,with its mix of tight tech at the top, jumps berms and high speed stuff bottom 2/3, looks way more fun than the all tech DHSE course in the USA. I just love that variety.

 Who decides which rocks get painted? Riders, corse designers? What’s the criteria exactly? I’m guessing it’s obstacles that are harder to see but could use a real answer.
Thanks.

 Looks like a proper World Cup Coarse to me. Sick line choices as well.
