 I’m surprised how many riders don’t make a strong effort to move out of the trail when stopped. I understand that sometimes there’s a logjam, but some people with handlebars hanging into the line, etc.

 "That was exciting." he said. "Near death." was the deadpan reply. Those Photo Epics leave you thinking it would be hard to focus on the trail. Seeing these POV's reminds me how important it is to 'keep eyes on the road!'

 If Jesse thinks the trail is hard to ride, I'd probably die. Such a ladies man...

 Some riders walk the tracks before practice, Jesse doesn't, he does his practice runs blind (I think Martin does too) which is bonkers when you see how fast they go.

Some of his comments are notes to himself for when he watches the video.
