 Enduro races need more stages like this. One of the most fun places I raced at was in Bend Oregon which used skinnies on one of their trails as a shortcut. Here's a clip, starting at 2 mins. in www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ7wwt0QapY

This looks awesome.

 That's about 4/5 trails in one preview.

 @scott-townes: Yeah that's Funner. It's got a couple hidden/skinny lines like the one you mentioned. Doesn't quite look the same as that 2012 preview though... the trail is routed the same but it's lost a lot of the dirt in the tread.

Generally the fun way to ride Funner is to stay left on every split (except there's one split where it goes 1-way to your right).

 Just did a day of riding with some buddies on Sunday at Sun Peaks. Cant wait to see how every single one of these riders demolish my times on each and every trail. It was fun riding between the tape on some trails though.

 Some nice trails there. I like how she complains about the trail being overgrown at 0:35....that is not an overgrown trail by any means.

 No there was a bunch of snippets of different trails in that video. Sugar/sweet one and Behind Bars are on opposite sides of the mountain at the same elevation so that'll be two different runs. Same with Gnar Boom/Insanity One etc. Just showing some highlights that the pros were practicing on, I presume.
