 Every time I watch one of his POV's I'm astounded at how calm and controlled his riding appears to be while you know he is absolutely flying down the trail!

 Glad to hear Sam Hills fork sounding like it's sucking air. Figured that was always just a self inflate feature that would only come on my forks.

 It's because it has a prototype damper.

 He did say in one of the videos last year he runs his fork softer and slower than a lot of other riders.

 Straight lines as much as possible! Crazy to compare this to the course preview video.

 Sam must have 3 lungs. Barely breathing, never tiring and just building speed the whole way down

 Those people standing on the trails would freak me out. Imagine coming out of a corner with 60 km/h and almost crashing because someone wants to take a picture half a meter closer than is possible behind the barricades...
