    Thats a sick video, love the way it looks like hes going down as hes laying the bike down aired out over the top only to put it at a slanted approach angle before he lands a bermed corner... DID not know it was possible to ride the elsinore trail that fast. Holy )$*# Im glad I watched that....

    Nice work thanks......................................

    Fricken dude has some serious style and SKILLS, FAST.........

    Looks like Gwin got even more style than he used to have and looks super comfortable on the bike. Also has a good mentality when it comes to racing. Id be stoked to see him get some wins this season for sure.

    That has to be some of the most incredible riding I've ever seen. The way he rides that trailbike even...just...breathtaking style.

    The trailbike section is so inspirational! Fu*cking PINNNNNED! Best section of video I have seen in a really long time, and makes being stuck in the library and not on the bike SO much more difficult.

    It's been awesome watching Gwin go from those So-Cal kids' buddy to a top ten WC rider, and it's cool to see how the progression has been from a lot of hard work - makes it feel more attainable...even though I know it's probably not!

    Sick dedicating riding. Very inspiring indeed.

    Yea, the trailsection is very cool. It really shows the high level of determination in a rider like Gwin.

    Not that it matters, but could anyone tell if he was riding the 575 or the ASR 5 for the trail sections?

    Best of luck to him this season. He has done more training than ever for this year. I cannot wait to see USA on the podium more this WC season.
