 If you slow the speed down by 70%and add all those sketchy saves and crashes together....that's a normal run down a trail for me!

 I really am blown away by just another way that WC racers are so much better than all the rest of us. I would have crashed in every single one of those situations where the racers saved something insane. And Amaury's finish line endo is just insane every time I see it!

 I really don't know what group of riders you’re looking at to make that statement. Maybe compared to some joeys getting sketchy, but to an average rider none of those saves are impressive. I know people who have saved themself from stuff that looks way worse than all of the minuscule number of saves in this video and I’ve seen way cooler/more impressive saves by non pros on Instagram. The only real impressive save I can think of from the whole season is Kade Edwards nearly crashing from roosting the shit out of a corner, and that’s over on vital in a practice day video.

 So many of those crashes were averted because the rider was loose enough to chill and let the bike work itself out.

 And they are all in shape and are strong enough to not loose the bars or crumple.
