 "Is that Dave?" People wonder how some pro's always get great coverage. Well. There's the answer. Being aware, knowing who's important in the media camp and taking the time to stop so that he can get a good shot.
Being a pro is so much more than being quick on the bike.

 The level of pace on a sight lap is insane. They make it look so easy!

 Madeira really is as good as it looks....Do yourself a favour. book a flight to this beautiful island and contact Freeride Madeira for as many days as you can. I went in September, 17 degrees and dusty with blue skies

 Damn, is incredible how EWS promotes destinations... never hear of anyone saying to go to ride there after a UCI DH WC...

Am I dumb or am I missing something?

 No big wheel action.

 The Slayer is a big mountain bike, a slightly more neutral suspension with 29" wheels is better equipped to handle the variety of tracks the EWS offers, rather than a bike that might do really well for just the steep rough tracks.

 7+ minute race run with pedaling thrown in the middle. The level of fitness required to do this all at pace is frankly shocking.

 Love how he is talking about washing out right in front of the "Addix" rubber compound billboard!
