 The young Jedi. Boyish enthusiasm shines through the terror. Yoda would be proud. Such a great personality.

 Ha! Was just thinking to myself "this pace would probably win most local races". These guys are from another planet.

 This track looks sick, love the rocky sections, they look like my local trails, not that much speed, but techy and exciting. And I dig the Snowshoe vibe!

 Would be so sick to see a video of each track before and after the race to see what line choices and a weekend of heavy racing do to it

 just rode about 70–80% of this track a couple weeks ago and to be fair I didn't know the lines at all (even less than Jackson here) but my brothers in christ carrying ANY speed in that last rock garden is just hilariously hard. super fun to try, though

 that rock garden is GNARLY. can´t understand how you can ride it that fast...

 I remember racing Snowshoe in the mid 2000s and multiple people spraining their ankles trying to walk their bikes through the rock gardens. It’s hard to overstate how gnarly that place is.

 Last year, I stood just below the exit of the rock garden for elite practice and race runs. It was interesting to watch both Bruni and Amaury hike back up numerous times to sort it out. During his race run, Amaury made it look like there weren't even rocks there. It was unreal.

 Mentally calm with lightning reflexes and next level technique - a winning combo - and apologizes mid run how Canadian

 I love how he keeps apologizing as if we’re all watching going, “what a bum.”

 Killer. Please set the camera to "Pro Tune" to avoid all the artifacting in the video. I want to see the glistening rocks.

 It's the youtube compression algorithm adding those artifacts, you can assume the raw video off the GoPro would be higher quality. You can't put video on Youtube and have it stream at whatever bitrate and resolution you desire, Youtube recompresses all video you upload to its own settings, which is why it usually takes a little while after uploading a video until your clip is available to stream in all different supported resolutions.

 Least exiting track of the year, presented by the most exiting rider of the year (except Deprella)
