 Yeah, I'm sure it's way gnarlier in person but this actually looks like mountain biking instead of those xc races where it's just a crit race on dirt with hills.

 I watched the Pivot team practice ride. Pretty damn good video on YouTube. As a Mach 4SL rider myself I’d love to see one podium. :-(. The course is probably the best or friendliest viewer course I’ve seen. Excited to watch

 Lets hope they keep the course open for the public because I'd love to see the brazilian xc scene get even bigger

 Super course. I wanna play too! The wide range of conditions from loose climbs, blown out fine dirt and tech sections is going to make tire choice a real joy [sarc].

 This track looks so sick! I’m excited to watch this weekend’s race (yes I caved and subscribed to Maxx)

 Be honest. Is this more technical downhill than your local trails? On the downside it isn't singletrack.

 Which promotes overtaking so actually awesome. If you can bomb down a technical section faster than your opponent you can now get past doing it. Also means we might see riders get far more creative with lines too

 @Ktr0n: Yes the line choices are good for racing but I wouldn't want my local trails to be that wide. I would want some of these features though.
