 Would love to see her take the full win. Always such a positive personality even bouncing back from adversity

 Look at all that plastic usef to mark the course! Sad sight. There's got to be alternatives surely, including not double and triple taping as done here, not taping the straight sections, and maybe someone's come up with a recyclable barricading tape?

The tapes are made of LDPE which is perfectly recyclable

 @Kolikjun: that is good to know, thanks. I hope they _do_ recycle it because the quantity used seems a bit excessive.

@FUbob: everyone can do their bit for a more sustainable use of resources, including parents of children, average joes, and event organizers.

 @mi-bike: we gather it all up in a ball at the end of the race, making sure each and every bit is removed from the trees. Then we all gather round, open a few tinnies and burn it, watching the beautiful plumes of black smoke rise into the heavens, and we sing and dance around, sometimes removing articles of clothing such is the heat from the smoldering, dripping plastic globule flaming before us.

 @mi-bike: I've seen clips from what I think was a Scottish national enduro there, and they only single taped a lot of it. Plenty of riders had issues with visibility of it, especially when it came to unexpected turns in the trail. Adding the extra layers seems to make a big difference to that.
Agree it's a lot of material being used but hopefully they can either reuse or recycle it.

 @CleanZine: reckon you can thank the frenchies for their special lines, and a certain Mr Rude for course cutting last year.

 The video comes up "marked as private". I watched the video on YouTube last night. Someone get that woman a windsock on the mic. Also the floating look with that stabilization makes it look a bit surreal, specially since the only part of the bike we can see is the visor. They should allow chest or chin mounts - they provide much better footage, and I think the whole "safety" thing is a bit of bull.

 Those sunlight to heavy shade transitions look do the narrow trees. Chrome plated spheres in all the racers.
