Interviews seem very contrived and this course is taking XC backwards. Safety is an issue but this swings it back too far. I am not spending £10k on an Xc Mtb to race a chicken wire board walk!
Enduro is where it is at for me right now. The fitness, skill level and courage are next level. Just wish the footage could be better.

I see that Rob Warner has been working as a private investigator in Hawaii during the off season, Warner P.I.

I don't know if there was a script for the answers*** but Schurter, Avancini, Langvad, and Courtney didn't sound disappointed with the changes on the track.
Maybe some people overrated the same way it happened with Downhill last year (Lošinj - Croatia)

Langvad made a good point with unnecessary injuries.

They are paid good money to represent companies. It’s in their best interest to stay pc and not piss off people. Schurter definitely would love a more technical course. Annika would love a less technical course based on last year

: spot on.

The people here on PunkBike who are complaining are a bunch of wannabees who probably couldn't even finish a single lap of this course!

: pretty much. If you watch the track preview it's not a giant paved gravel path at all. It's not super technical, but thats a brutal course.

: The course is for children. Most Enduro or Dh riders would do this blindfolded!!
