    I love that feeling of the inside heel scraping ground. You can almost lean on it for stability. That last drop looks awesome.

    hearing Rach talk about how the course designer has been laboring over this track for the past 15 years to make it the awesomeness that it is, has me even more fired up for Saturday. This is truly going to be a super epic gnar bang of a final.
