Final Results: British National Downhill - Round 2 Fort William
I was looking at the splits and it seemed like gee made 9 seconds in the last 1.40 of the track.. but then looking at other splits they seem to be all over the place... not ideal for a UK national round!

Video: CathroVision Track Walk - Maribor World Cup DH 2019
Gutted that cathrovision is so limited this year, was so good getting in depth line choice, made watching the live feed so much better and more interesting overall event! The track walk here felt so rushed, and hope that redbull can sort cathro out with a hall pass... not fair when it seems like other people are taking the piss with it for mediocre content.

@IllestT: I think they're planning on making the bog passable not ruining it. At moment the area near the bog is a scar on the landscape, and a PITA to hike your bike round. Agree the rest is amazing and the better bit is coming back to langsett where it is 'raw'.

I think even trail work on Lady Canning goes unnoticed... slightly banked corner there, boggy bit fixed here, berm a little higher.. all slight tweaks which just make it run a bit better! It's all the same in the peak too. I think the message is just awareness of the work that is done - the more people that want to get involved the better but would way rather have someone on my dig team that wants to be there and is enthusiastic than one that has been guilt tripped.

@IllestT: Obviously it does depend on the trail! I think the main things are when the water courses get diverted onto the trail due to erosion of water bars/blocking of drains with leaves etc, and then you're left with nothing much left to ride on/deep/dangerous ruts/ridng down a river- which is never fun! Devils Elbow is a prime example of natural maintenance done correctly. Before it was a slop fest at the bottom and almost impassable, now it's been 'maintained' the whole trail flows. If you are ever down that way you should check it out. PDMTB do a lot of work on lockerbrook too which is vastly improved with clearing of drains etc. I think a lot natural trails have more work done than you think to improve drainage situations

I think even with Peak district trails they need maintenance to keep them running sweet. Just look at Blackamoor and work that has been done there, plus work done by PDMTB on trails around Mam Tor and Whinstonelee Tor - all subtle work that improves the drainage and helps the trail run better all year round - the amount of traffic now compared to 10 years ago is huge. Helping maintain even 'natural' trails is required, even if its not making jumps and berms.
