Remember that one time when some riders were complaining about a perfectly manicured 8-foot drop in the U.S. National Champs course a couple years ago? LOL.

    the pics from today are coming, but in Sven's caption he says they closed off this drop and it will probably stay that way.

    It's just like the drop on the Telluride World Cup track. But a right instead of a left.
