Date Mar 30, 2015


A DH course disguised as an enduro course, it’s no wonder Sam Hill took the win for this stage.

That looked like a fun course. Having redlined in a few races myself, I could hear him calm his breathing near the beginning of his run.

Re-route around the enormous gaps jumps was sensible and looked like a good trail in its own right.

Nothing like 4 minutes of pedalling and hard work to warm you up before you get thrown into a WC level Dh track on a 160 mm trail bike!!!

At 0:46 I thought: "yeah, that's like every race run in my life."

For the next minute or so I thought: "that must be steep as hell, it looks like he's hardly moving and already breathing heavy."

For the rest of the run all I could think was: "I wish there was a speedometer overlaid onto the screen. And maybe BPM." At times he's moving so fast that the camera can't keep up - unreal.
