bigquotesThis track is steeper than it looks! After a few days of bad weather it was looking like it was going to be greasy so was pretty stoked when I dropped in for the first lap and the whole track was a fresh loamer! Unreal stuff! Preston Williams

 Yeah! That was probably the best preview I’ve ever seen. Super chill (commentary) and clearly spoken. Great job!

 Dude says "sory if this is a slow lap" while talking calmly and going faster than 95% of us, yeah rito Preston.

 Great preview. There were so many people calling this track a “blue trail”, and that they could ride it on their xc bike. I would love to actually watch them try it on a downhill bike. 80% wouldn’t make the steep parts…!

 I think the initial previews (before it was cut in) were pretty misleading. Track's looking much more legit now that its getting fast and blown out, even if its largely just a visual thing

 Have to admit the first preview I watched did make this track look a little tame…at the end of day all that flat out stuff at the top is not the most exciting to watch, although I’m sure there will be sketchy parts.

 Great commentary and preview. The course seems a little "un-polished" compared to the other WC courses.

 I like the old school look of this track. If it gets wet those grassy turns up top will be good watching

 This is only 30s off the fastest time in Quali, definitely not hanging around.

 Are Preston and Jordan related? Their voices sound a lot alike.

 This track looks extremely boring, which is unfortunate. Still gonna watch but it’s gonna be “who can brake the latest going into the corner with only one line choice all the way down the mountain”.
