 Looks like a good old nuggety track! Is it fair to say that Gee Atherton is the king of the POV Course Preview? How he managed to talk almost constantly the whole way down some the gnarliest WC tracks is beyond me!

 Crazy to see the difference between Cathro and Greenlands track preview.Top-5 rider vs Pro Rider. Insightful.

 Just came from Cathro's to this...you not kidding. Laurie is brake checking and over shooting everything that Cathro is casing. The pace at the top is difficult to process.

 Stoked to see Laurie getting a bit more limelight. He’s a great character on the circuit. Heck the whole damn field is just stacked and so many riders are fit, skilled, stylish, and charismatic. Oh, and the bikes this year are nuts. High pivots. Crazy paint jobs. New models. It’s like proper F1 or Le Mans. Love it!!!

 Is it just me or does it seem quite random which trees they've decided to put padding on? Quite a few on the outside of fast corners are padded which seems sensible... then there's a couple of trees right in the middle of the track that have none. I know you can't pad them all but I wonder who decides?
