 I have a question with the two race in one locale but separate tracks format.

This is presumably done to get more rounds in with covid-19, but why not keep doing it as a way to inexpensively add more rounds to the WC?

I remember a discussion about whether more stops could be added to get the DHWC more on par with outdoors motocross, and the limiting factor seemed to be travel cost. Having the two races per stop would solve this problem right? Instead of 7 races at 7 locations, you could get 11 or 12 races in at the same number of locations by doubling up in some places

 His speed is clearly due to the fact that a rabid turkey was chasing him down track.

 I can't be bothered to check, but I'll go ahead abd assume he's running Sram brakes.

 Impressive how stable the footage is compared to the helmet (or at least the helmet visor). Is that postprocessing, is there some kind of suspension in the helmet mount or is this how great image stabilization has become nowadays?

 The new GoPro 9 (I assuming this is the camera used) has really impressive IS in my experience using it so far

 I like hearing when he uses brakes; gives a bit of insight into when and for how long these guys brake (or don't brake...)

 Noisy brakes, noisy freehub, huffin' and puffin' suspension... who needs all this fancy data logging equipment if all you need is a camera (with microphone) to get an idea of what is going on?

 Seems to be more or less dry?

 I think it's cool to see the same track in different conditions.

 The new longer bottom section is gnarly! This will be a great race!
