    I was never able to ride like that. What's that big pink flap on his helmet? To catch the wind, like a parachute to slow him down? Assuming he's looking down the trail, does it also serve to catch on branches? Just wonderin'.

    I know what a visor is (). I just don't see that pink flap acting like a visor, more like an air brake of some sort. Maybe it's to funnel air down into his lid to cool him down while he's "pinning it". Really, I'm just joking around here but tell me that pink flap actually is doing something constructive.

    So are all the gaps mandatory? Go arounds? Rollable?

    I'm going to have to ride that one a few more times to really get the flow down.

    You could get around some of the trickier parts if you tried, but they haven't built roll-arounds. Still felt like the trail wasn't quite finished- curious to see what else is in store for it.

    Agree, a little soft in spots and some of the littler gap jumps at the end seemed unfinished. It does flow pretty well, but without knowing it well, its hard to get it to flow like the video, you have to know when to pedal to hit the gaps..
