 Thanks for showing us that you are human and make mistakes. 15th on the stage with three crashes shows how quick you were really going. Bummer to lose a podium spot like that but fourth overall on a bad day is how overall championships are won.

 That's what I'm telling myself! Lots to do better on at the next round.

 @JesseMelamed: Third overall in the championship so far isn't too shabby either to be fair.

 @JesseMelamed: I have huge respect for you not giving in, despite the crashes and stalls. You keep the concentration and bring in the effort to still go as fast, as you can. And that is some phenomenal riding of yours! So nice to watch! Thank you for sharing this with us!

 Now I don't feel so bad abt crashing 3 times on my race runs...although I'm going 1/3 as fast on a track 1/10 as long, but other than that me and Jesse are the same!

And btw, that terrain looks terrible and in no way do I want to live/ride there.

 Wow - I think that's the most amazing POV footage I've ever watched! I watched it on the big screen with the sound up and really got an experience of the effort and speed you put in there! And I know the camera always dubs it down, so its only a fraction of the REAL experience - what an effort. Thanks for sharing. Not a bad result all things considered and glad to see you didn't hurt yourself - Best of luck next time.

 Jesse is easily one of my favorite riders and I watch his stuff all the time, this also includes MGM channel. I was gutted to hear he lost out to the podium but still amazed to see him get 3rd overall. I had him as my overall winning pick

 The fact that after every fall he was back up and going full speed in a couple of seconds was impressive!

 Incredible athlete! If this was a video game and I had to keep my guy on the course at that speed, I would have crashed 12 times. Amazing to watch, thanks for sharing!

 Do you get arm pump at all during stages like these? I can’t imagine the pain i would have in my fingers/arm after 2 minutes of this

 Yeh brutal small mistakes. That's racing man. Next time. Would have been super close if you had have cleaned it though. The competition is going to be close this year. Get after it buddy!!
