Holy Crap!

I had no clue as to the length and duration of DH/Freestyle races. So this is more a marathon Freestyle with DH in the course?

I thought literally DH courses were at ski resorts and a few mile at most.

Who knew ?

18 mile distance typically, so about 22+ mph avg. the GoPro makes it seem like they are going faster but actually they are.

I watched the entire 40 minutes, alternately going “Holy Crap” and “Jesus Christ” and “Holy S**T”. Amazing bike handling.
