Air quality was junk today in SW Colorado and same for a few weeks this summer but in general we are quite nice! I’m bummed the event is cancelled as I was planning to race this to make use of my very ridiculously expensive USAC/UCI license.

Thanks Digby! Austin here… I cleared up what the Aaron Gwin joke is about on the podcast but I should do it here as well. Kasen made a joke on one of our first podcasts, saying that I said Aaron is washed up, just to ruffle some feathers. He said “just kidding, I’m just getting us views”. Then everyone...more

SMH... I knew he was lying, I hope his mom sets him straight soon!
P.S. Austin, I know you actually like Aaron after our conversations at Nationals and I will stop propagating the untruth from now on.

I enjoy the inside jokes, guys! I've listened to every one of these podcasts and enjoyed all but one part of them. It's just terrible how Austin has such negative views on Gwin; Aaron is a really cool guy and it's a shame that Austin is hating on his speed and success sad
Other than that, I love the show!

@thejake I'm aware this was the procedure up until a few years ago (2019?) since then they changed it. Read the first block of text on this exact page for the explanation on that one.

What happened to Kailey? She looked great in the RAW yesterday, I was excited to see what she could do!

Who thought it was a good idea for the straight ramp step up take off to rounded landing? Not knowing the speed of entry I can’t truly judge, but it very much seems like a speed restricted feature. You’ll have to slow down, bunny hop to make a smooth ... more »

You can use the web browser, Opera, with it's built in VPN. I did it last year and the year before in Washington and Colorado, so it wasn't hindered by the internet provider either.

I think we can all agree that USAC is a doo doo organization, especially when it comes to their handling of downhill racing.

It should be noted that Muc-Off is not pulling its sponsorship from Amaury’s team, only Comencal 21 where Alex Marin and Angel Saurez are. Charlie Julia is that teams manager and Amaury’s post was a repost of Charlie’s story (plus some text).

Added a comment about video WORLD CHAMPS DH COURSE PREVIEW - Val di Sole is Still Brutal 7/23/2021 4:46 PM

Having been there for the last world champs in 2016, I can attest to how steep it is and that the camera does not do it justice. The turns on the ski run in the first 1/3 used to have very little support and keeping speeds lower and time differentials higher compared to what they've done with several added "bike park" berms. I noticed quite a few corners and bench cuts having more support than years past so I think the racing will be a good 1-2mph faster and times tighter. Maybe this is good in the television crew's eyes, but I'd rather watch slightly slower tracks that will bring greater time differentials.
That being said, and I can't stress it enough, THIS TRACK IS STEEPER THAN IT LOOKS. For all you people who might think it's just a rough bike park trail, it is probably not rideable for many who aren't at an advanced level in DH.
