 I know about money issues and exposure politics but I still find a damn shame that DH World Cup show doesn't come to Whistler. It's awkward. Honestly.

 Agreed. I could listen to him talk nonsense all day, but behind the humour there is a lot of knowledge that some of us can learn from. Love his interview style.

 When you start calling them "whoops sections", it just sounds like a lazy excuse to not do some work on the horrendous braking bumps. At least chuck a few microwaves in there, smooth it out a bit

 To be fair, the section before hecklers rock is a man made whoop section

 @mollow: It was merely meant as a joke, you lovely stranger on the internet. I thought I made that clear by adding the "chuck a few microwaves in there" line, but that seemed to go over your head. Wear a helmet, you might get it next time.
