 the best commentary, Jesse- " do you wanna watch me eat shit trying this line? " unknown voice- " I think Jack did it nicely," Jesse- " Well Jack does everything nicely alright, we can't all be like him."

 Really enjoying these vids Jesse, experiencing your POV unfiltered. It’d be interesting to know more of how you’re breathing under such pressure, like how & where you seem to snatch moments to consciously expel breath . Is that something you train for, or are you just hanging on for dear life?

 It is something I train for, just by creating a habit when I ride normally. So when I'm racing and can barely think straight, I subconsciously do it.

 Hard to imagine that someone went even faster. Bad ass!

 That's a long effort and listening to his breath later in the run was giving me anxiety that he'd hit a tree no seeing straight. Wow! effort. Would love to see the HRM #s

 Check his Strava. He maxed out at 155bpm on todays stage,judging from his breathing I thought it would be more.

 @nozes: That was just my watch heart rate so very inaccurate. I'm usually around 180bpm for race stages. Doesn't matter how physical they seem.

 Well done Jesse! Finding the recipe to get up there with some incredibly stiff competition! I can't imagine what it's like to race that field...Those trails look mint! I wonder if the whole park is like that?

 @RayDolor: Yeah, its the same problem with so many other riders/action sports go pro videos. Its like it can't keep up with the speed. Pretty bad.
