So, Nyquist's groin-mount go-pro position might be a new trend-setting discovery... not sure.

The Complete Guide to the 2018 UCI World Cup Downhill Tracks
I have a request: Show a plot of all track profiles, on a standardized scale so we can actually compare length and steepness directly. Ideally all on one plot, but otherwise on a standard scale, perhaps each individually but with another track as a benchmark (i.e. FW or MSA, something super classic that everyone knows) in a light-grey so that everyone can see differences easily... The only issue I see here is that starting elevations vary a lot, so either show them all as total relief, or just plot them all on one, but list the reliefs next to the track name.

Red Bull Pump Track World Championship, Bali - Video
Point of Interest: wheel-size, wheel-base, and speed on pumps... I think it comes down to interference/amplification in terms of the waveform of the track you're riding. BMX will be best on tracks with short distances between roller peaks and rapid transitions (small radii), and larger wheels/longer wheelbases will excel more on tracks that have longer distances between rolls and larger radii transitions. It's really just a question of 'best tool for the job', with the job being the shape and demeanor of the track you're riding.

Forgetting it's an ad for Audi, that Thovex bit had me asking, "is this real life?" Ridiculous.

BTW: hit me up... will put serious shovel time in, plus experience with machine trails (you supply the mini-x) and I'll throw in a pro-bono full 3-D photogrammetric map of your trails, for science.

OK... Realizing that the Gig Harbor reference is to a private trail... 360 trails is the closest you'll come (trailforks) but there are some dope private trails around. wish there was more of a community in the area to allow connections.
