 Very premature title. I have a proposal to all athletes, make Finale Ligure EWS in September the DH World Cup as well. Each stage will count as one world cup.

 @lkubica: I am surprised US doesn’t have a fatter curve. It’s a weird graph though, from what I’ve heard/ read from various epidemiologists and virologists US has some of the largest risk group under 65yrs of age. Are Brits fat too? Beans and bacon? Toast&jam?

 @WAKIdesigns: This is a curve per number of citizens. So it is relative. Absolute values in US are much higher...

 @WAKIdesigns: Crisps and chocolate I'd say. We've been busily trying to give the US a run for their money for a good few years now.

 @nozes: we stock up on guns and amunition for just about every news worthy event these days... Mostly stupid.
Though can't say I'm immune from it. Besides art and MTB, shooting is one of my biggest hobbies and I don't want to be out of bullets or toilet paper!!!

 Shredding Keegan!! I was lucky enough to visit the Maydena Bike Park recently and it was amazing! It has only been in operation for 2 years but they've got 62 trails built already with 820m (2700 feet) of vertical! They're not messing around and putting shoes on caterpillars!! There is a varied mix of green circles, blue squares, black diamonds and double black diamonds and some pro big air lines too!! The dirt was amazing and I was stoked to ride my new YT Capra for a week there before coming home and being in 2 weeks self isolation. I definitely can't wait to ride there again when the world is back to somewhat normal!!

 You were hilarious at the presentations Sat night. Everyone was stoked to have you there. I had to educate a few younger folk of your legendary status in MTB by letting them know you were the star of the very first MTB movie I bought; Search for the Holy Trail.

 @UniorDevinciFactoryRacing: Just checking that this is in fact, not his new set up...

 Using the information that has become available to me today, I'm pretty sure that this isn't his new set up.

 Check out his sick setup. Is it new?
  • 1 1
 By the above analysis, it would appear the results confirm that this set up, is not his new set up

 This looks familiar, is it really a new set up?

 Um , any footage of the "steep, technical descents of Maydena Bike Park"? Great riding obviously, but it doesn't match the desciption!

 Could you imagine how long it would take to film a video on that stuff?

 I must admit, I was kind of looking forward to pro lines down steep technical descents.

 Also, anyone riding that fast needs to wear a proper helmet. And goggles. And all the pads. Not just a Kippah...

 Reminds of a TV show I saw years ago where the character was complaining how everything is a scam. He lived on Rosehill Terrace. No roses, not on a hill, and not a terrace.
