 Probably the point gopro can improve by the future: make steep tracks look steep in videos, because riding in Morzine every year they are really steep !

 Brilliant look into how the pros, ex-pros and locals ride these trails. Scotty was riding like a mad man down that unknown trail. I kind of wonder if Viinny T would have been mostly off the brakes swishing his rear tyre around on that last SoSteep section. Looks like exactly the kind of thing he rides lots of locally at insane speeds.

 I think so that Vinny T would have been more off the brakes, but it's hard to say. Vinny T's gullies are less ridden than this one and have lot more traction which allow him to have more control and to spend less time on the brakes.

 I rode this track 2 weeks ago and 2 years ago when it was fresh. The difference is huge! The track is "the same" but in fresh dirt you could slow down so it was possible to leave the brakes on some part, now it is almost impossible to slow down and even think about leaving the brakes. Not sure you can feel this on gopro videos!
2 years ago during crankworks pro riders jumped some parts in this one

 When Danny Hart is two finger braking and sledging downs hill......it’s steep. I have been in a similar situation in Wales with another Worldcup DH er, and I was terrified!

 You should have a go they're manageable at slow speeds and well worth a blast.
