First day at Crankworx on a soaked track was pure entertainment with some loose cannons going for broke and staying upright down the 'larches' section and some getting a little too rowdy, sending into to the bushes.

 They'll have to grow stronger with the extra resistance. It's kind of like the human experience.

 Remember Luke, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Imagine those trees in a year... Mortherf..in tanks on the track.

 Just part of the sport. Conditions like this would get me killed. I watch guys ride in all these world cup races and more than half are wet and slick it seems. I honestly don't like riding in conditions like this. Stressful as hell.

 Agree - Mad respect for the ones that are good at it but when it's that slippery sloppy I just don't enjoy it.

 I find riding in these sorts of conditions really fun, the lack of predictable grip makes you have to focus a lot more, but it's also really rewarding. That being said, I would struggle to ride almost any world cup DH track in the dry, But once you get used to these conditions it's not that much harder, just a lot slower.

 usually 1000x more fun to ride than to spectate...but this is the exception.

 I have had my ass handed to me so many times in Roto in these conditions. I makes me smile to watch the best of the best sliding around like that. That track is a killer dry riding it that wet is a joke. Looking forward to the Air DH.
