 Thanks for sharing! I find it so comforting to watch people ride bikes in rough terrain that I sometimes find myself torn between participating in local races and simply going there to watch how others ride the difficult trail segments. Hoping to drive down to europe to watch a DH world cup race or EWS once this SHITTY virus is dead and gone
