 Great job Aimi. I dig it, hell even Laurie had to pull over a couple of times on his preview.

 Yes, finally a preview with commentary that resembles the inner monologue the rest of us mere mortals have while riding bikes: "cased that ... off-line again ... that was awkward." I've been riding dirt at least twice as long as you've been alive, and admire your bravery for facing a World's DH course and a POV commentary-cam at the same time!

 @powturn: I cannot upvote this enough. Long time mountain biker here but a mere mortal at the same time. A slope like that at a speed like that is not where I would choose to multi-task....

 I vote we sack Ben and keep Aimi on the previews!

 Hi Ben, we've finally found your burner account. It will be deleted. Get back to work! -Outside CEO

 She's got some pretty big shoes to fill. I mean, I assume Ben's has large feet cause he's tall.

 Great work Aimi!

Would love to know what Aimi thinks her reaction would have been in July 2021 if someone told her she would have an all expenses paid trip for World Champs?
And she would be doing a track preview.
And she would be racing.

What a year!

 Very good attempt, love that you didnt cut out any of the mishaps, gives us a much better understanding of how steep some of that track is. Wouldnt know otherwise!

 And the fact that it takes a WC-Rider some time too reset and pull the bike back out just shows how demanding it is to ride this track…

 Can Ami do every track preview? Asking for a friend.

So refreshing to see someone with such positivity and truly enjoying her riding. Really really good, congrats!

 Those last few jumps seem like they would need warming up to by just about anyone, but it is great to see how comfortable she has gotten with her jumping!

 Even Bruni cased them all on his gopro track preview. Looks like you need race speed to clear them properly. Great watching Aimi clearing the road gap without even hesitating

 Most relatable course preview ever.

 It's refreshing to see this perspective: scary first full run down a track with intimidating JUMPS, the off-track moments in steep sections or tech bits with unclear lines, hyper focused and can't talk much... I could narrate my usual downhill run that I've had 40+ laps on, but a World Champs track without much practice? Probably NOT. Great work Aimi. Let's see track video #2 after more practice runs and see how much faster it is.

 Image seemed much clearer and easier to visualize than Cathro's track previews, was it because of the lower camera angle?

Anyways, nice work looking forward to the race run.

 This was great - a few mistakes makes us mortals all feel a bit better about ourselves. Mix it up more with track previews in the future.
