 Oh man...Did she just say the bush hasn't been trimmed?? (3:27)
  • + 2
 Would have liked to have seen a graphic displaying the riders names for the finals and perhaps the top 3 finishers. Awesome vid otherwise...
  • + 17
 I'm working on that for next round, it had run through my mind but with a limited time I wasn't able to do something for this round cheers for the feedback though, always looking for ways to improve
  • + 2
 Maybe also top 10 qualifying times? Were you not able to got a helmet cam run of the track? That always breaks up the 'standard shots' nicely IMHO...
  • + 3
 yeah that might also be an idea I was planning on including some helmetcam footage but never got around to getting anyone to do any, definitely on the list for next time though
  • + 1
 Getting it done at 6:30!

 As hard as 4X is and I appreciate the skill it takes to ride at this level I find 4X boring to watch as all tracks appear to be so similar in videos (obviously not when riding them). Well made video though with some good music
  • + 1
 damn)) They've stolen my idea about music!)) We've wanted to open first North Shore fun race in Moscow with this music(justice). Now we're gonna find a new one

 @angryham I'm surprised belgium had any elevation big enough for a 4x track

  • + 1
 Yes it looks very sunny out in California terms Smile

 There needs to be like a 4X Super-D. That'd be sick.
  • + 1
 That's pretty much the idea of the new xc eliminator race that replaced the 4x at world cups, but in practice the eliminator is terrible compared to the 4x, only 2 passes occurred and one person was disqualified for one of them
  • + 1
 Razz That sucks then. I was thinking more like insert DH trail sections into the standard passable 4X so then you just get way bigger time gaps between people. Just a fantasy though...I haven't ridden my bike in so long at the uni that I'm delirious. BTW did Stu PM you recently about anything?
  • + 1
 In theory yeah a downhill 4x type event with long tracks and singletrack technical sections would be fantastic, maybe it might happen in the future, I certainly hope so. No he didn't, not that I know of anyway.
  • + 2
 Actually, we have this type of race in the Czech Republic already. It's called Marosana 4DOWN. Maybe you know. That would be so sick, if something like that was organised as some kind of Cup.

  • + 1
 nice someone still cares about 4X Salute tup
  • - 3
 Sick edit bro, good footage. But the track lacked any senders- 4x tracks need some huge high speed doubles in them to separate the racers from the people who can actually hit big stuff and ride bikes... The amount of 4xers even at a high level who hate jumping is ridic.
  • + 1
 "separate the racers from the people who can actually hit big stuff and ride bikes..." What the heck man, this is a race, why would they have a dirt jump park on the track? And to say these pro's cant ride bikes? hahah
  • - 1
 Take it from me dude when racing 4x everyone wants to ride big stuff at high speeds, it's why people race pretty much.
And did I say dirt jump park? I'm not talking putting a set of trails md course you donut just putting what some tracks patronisingly call a 'pro line' in. And from experience it really does separate the riders from the racers.
