 I'd love to ride with Rachel. But I think she would be disgusted with my pre dh track routine.

First I rub my eyes. Make sure I'm awake. Then I fart, make sure I don't shit myself on the way down, then I moan about what I've forgot to bring (water, helmet, gloves).. Clear the snot out my sinuses, have a piss usually wherever I'm stood, finish my spliff (which also has tobacco in) then ride down first even though I'm probably slowest without asking anyone if they are ready.

 Hey Trek, since your factory DH team is already in the states, why not have them hit up the proGRT at windrock next month?
  • + 14
 Did any one else notice in the sponsors list at the end that they are sponsored by "DOUCHEBAGS"?
  • + 2
 Next year they will have a spot for Julio's Man Thongs.
  • + 7
 Guess you don't ski. Look it up Dave, real nice bags from the mind of a skiing badass

 Yeah they're like the Eurotrash version of Dakine

 SD is full of golden DH trails, too bad most of them are hidden/illegal!

I was fortunate enough to ride with some builders down there once...really fun feature driven trails if you can find them!!!
  • + 5
 The last trail is probably a good 2-2.5 hrs from SD.
  • + 1
 @Rubberelli: ah, hard to tell!

North of SD or?
  • + 3
 @nvranka: try more like somewhere in that Forest behind San Manuel Casino no where near Cleveland Nation forest
  • + 0
 The trail that they start off on is in the hills above Poway!!! I used to train on that hill a couple times a week (15 years ago), fun trail and some steep drops. JB and his fiend built that trail and its good to see it's still being ridden. Easy and quick shuttle to the top

 Guys there is no riding in San Diego. Please just stay away from here. I was trying to tell Mark Scott and Ropelato that today as well. Really just go to Seattle or Omaha Nebraska.
  • + 2
 @salespunk: agreed, I hear Arkansas gets rowdy

 @Three6ty: Do you know where it is or what the trail is called? I work there and I am looking for more trails to ride.
  • + 11
 If it's not on strava, it didn't happen.
  • + 7
 is that the same trail curtis keene was riding in the vid of him testing the ohlins suspension?
  • + 1
 Sure looked like it was, I noticed it as well.

 Your right I had to confirm it, I live in SD and I have never seen a trail like that here, the top area is defiantly East County somewhere (east of the 15 for sure) but the bottom with trees is not. Check it out on YouTube, “Trek Factory Racing Cali Training Camp” 3:33 and “Specialized Enduro 29 in Action - Curtis Keene ONE LAP” 0:09 shows the same rock at a Trinidad, Colorado trail great edit job Trek… SD is a warm/sunny winter spot with a “Trek Superstore” in town.
  • + 2
 That trail is not in SD. It is up by Idyllwild.
  • + 2
 @salespunk: nope, it's not close to idyllwild.
  • + 1
 the trail is on trailfork......
  • + 5
 Great to see another rider on Trek!!! and that was a sick video with some sicker trails!!!
  • + 35
 I know right? Trek is such a small company it's good they're getting their name out there!!
  • + 2
 @dimetera413: U KNOW WHAT SARCASM IS
  • + 3
 Is Dan just along for the ride or what? Is he ever going to race DH? Or just build a 63 mile long DH trail with 900 foot gaps? Im confused... Asking for a friend
  • + 2
 You guys managed to come here the one month this year that it wasn't sunny everyday! Seriously though, it's pretty cool that a pro DH team comes to my home town for off season training, I feel super lucky to live here.
  • + 2
 I had the same experience in 2007. Tupac told me Cali never rains, and let me tell you in May 2007 it pretty much rained every day. Not cool. You guys should stop misleading people about the Cali weather.
  • + 2
 It rains here every day in SD. Please stay wherever you are.
  • + 1
 @salespunk: I don't know if you think you're being funny by replying to a ton of comments about how people should stay out of SD....but it isn't.

Mostly just a minor annoyance

 Who was the bearded clown at the beginning of the video saying San Diego was 'Shit'?
  • + 1
 I think he said "the shit"
  • + 1
 Sorry, I mean she
  • + 2
 @jaame:
It was hard for me to understand completely because of his accent, but I know he was complaining about the weather, and also that the camera was on him.
I watched it again, and after complaining to the camera man, and the other dude referencing the weather, the bearded dude said 'the weather's shit, it's better in Wales'.
Anyway, who is he?
  • + 1
 @YoKev: I think it was just a transsexual outside 7-11
  • + 1
 Pretty sure I ran into these guys further north yesterday. I was wondering what all the cameras were about.
  • + 2
 I cringe every time I hear someone call it "Cali".
