Video: Ben Cathro's Snowshoe World Cup Race Run POV
Depends on your definition of what light hands is really. I keep my hands pretty light through the more direct rough stuff but when I need to change direction or have full control over the bike I put light weight into my palms. Main reason for my arms getting cooked is from grip strength fatigue from holding on tight. On a lot of tracks whenever things mellow out ideally you want to centre your weight so you can relax the grip in the bars to stop them from getting too pumped. Some tracks like the lower section of snowshoe have no chill so the arms get fried.

Tube and tubeless custom setup. If you tear a tyre the tube should hold the air. If you pinch the tube the tubeless tyre should hold the air.

You’ve described that perfectly! Feels like you’re doing a deadlift. Driving through the legs with tension in the arms. Generates speed while you drive the back wheel through the transition while guiding the front wheel up the next feature.

Can you imagine if he got paid $0.01 every time it was played. Trillionaire.

I wouldn’t risk riding my home tracks then. Pretty much the only bike I ride :)
