 @bdreynolds7: I didn't catch it at first, but it was a wee bit of a french line on the wrong side of a green marker

 The early previews of this track had me a little underwhelmed, but my god its grown on me over the past few days. When the track is so rideable it allows the racers to start finding the limits much sooner. The progression we've seen over just one practice session was insane. Everyone is trying out gaps, new lines, boosting shit as far as they can. Im not even concerned with the racing, I just want hours of practice footage! If you haven't checked out BK's full length (50 min) LSD from last night its epic.

 I wonder if we'll see anyone pull for the double on that scrub jump at 1:25.... heck of a long reach and maybe hard to aim far enough left enough to land where you need, but they're both landing real deep scrubbing it hard here, might be doable

 I've been trying to figure it out for too long. Please tell me. What does LSD stand for in BK's channel?

 Sick! The speed is insane. My eyes can't even keep up with the video and they are probably riding it blind.

 Brendan and Jackson separated by a generation but United by unbelievable bike skills. I would love these two to be the regular course reviewers in this format.

 This course looks so fun. All the fresh loose grass sections and natural berms look like a blast.

 If only every UCI race run had follow cam footage like that.... no commentary needed!

 I do not have nearly that much confidence in my tires. Bonkers

 That is just bonkers fast. This is going to come down to endurance. That is a massive track with some huge braking sections. The brown left handers are what dreams are made of.

 does this get any faster?
  • 2 0
 The green course markings are hard to spot, at least on camera. Maybe bright pink or blue would be better?

 First time in a long time I actually enjoyed a head cam.... that was unreal and the track looks so good!
