 Holy cow Jesse, that was awesome! Congrats on the run and the weekend result, and thanks for sharing the ride and the post-run conversation. So great. (As a Rocky Mountain bike owner, also cool to see you killing it for that team.)

Glad to see Miranda in the top 10 too, and am pulling for Remi - go MGM!

 @JesseMelamed that was so sick! Fully pinned! Can't believe the speed you guys carry on that kind of track.

Sweet to see the camaraderie and the chat between you and Maes.

Congrats on the results!

 Thank you! It's nice because although we are fighting each other for positions, we are only riding against ourselves so we are all friends out there.

 Interesting at the end how he talks about the bike being too small for that track (4:45).

Mostly interesting with all the conversations lately about how "pros like smaller bikes", in the EWS.

Seems more like it is track/course dependent. And sometimes they wish they brought the "big bike" and other times they want the more nimble smaller bike. But... you can't change bikes between stages, so they have to compromise it seems.

 @jardo:

Oh, could totally be that too Smile .

@JesseMelamed

Care to shed some light?

Also, great work out there, always rooting for you. And your results seem to be getting better every round this year Big Grin .

 He's making a reference to needing a DH bike. There were some massive gaps and drops in that run, unreal how much abuse those bikes can take.

 @ocnlogan: Yes, I did mean it in terms of travel. Just getting bucked around so much.

 Nice one! Bad resolution helped in some places not to see how rowdy it was. Good job & nice time!

 Your wheels were in the air so much. Sounded like you were floating over the course. Awesome.

 Floating is smooth.

 @JesseMelamed: easier said than done when you are a buck fifty! Amazing riding as usual and great insight to what really happens in a race at your level.

 @JesseMelamed I noticed you had your fork lowered on practice day. Did you switch to higher travel later on?

 That was just a photo I think? Same 170mm as I run all of the time.

 There was nothing Enduro about that! That was a DH race on a tricycle. So intense!

 haha, a fast tricycle though!

 The bike is so quiet, you can really hear the tires hooking up, sounds awesome man. Legit dh bike sections, wow.
