I can't imagine the work it would take to keep that track smooth... after every damn rain.

There is a growing disparity in expectations for surfaces. The "park" kids seem to want things highly manicured which is fine in it's place. A lot of us want more of a raw experience. Naturally this leads to conflict cuz humans.

I had to go to Chrome to get that to open again.
My memory was right in that the ride is littered with a gazillion tarps to keep it dry when it rains.

As for smooth riding, I remember mentioning to a pro waterskiing friend how great a local lake had looked that morning, perfectly flat and calm.
He scoffed: "That's no fun, the bigger waves the better!"
He would regularly break himself in pieces on the ocean.

I saw one the other night where he rides onto a tennis court, stops dead parallel to and beside the net, then leaps over the net sideways landing on his wheels and rides away. That's not possible, that's cartoon shit, that can't be done by humans... he's not human.

The stunt where he ghost rides the bike up the springboard to the pommel horse and remounts on the flip took like 700 reps. The one he used was around the 500th try and he still didn't like it because of where the pedals ended up. He is a perfectionist.

I saw video of him with his childhood friends from Skye. They considered him unbreakable and always "used" him first when someone had a crazy idea.

I like it!

I especially liked the framing, much better than most. When giving the viewer the perspective of the rider, it's very nice to include at least a little of the horizon. And they appear to be good MTB ambassadors, staying on the trail, walking/carrying sometimes. Realistic. And very pretty scenery.

Thanks!
