I can't believe they never show the woods section in the coverage. It is by far the most interesting and where everyone lost the race. Gwin is an animal.

I guess they only have so many cameras and putting one there would only get like a couple of seconds of each rider? That and the cameraman would be eaten alive by Scottish hillfolk and midges.

I watched that helmetcam run this morning - bloody impressive.

I would have way rather watched how people like Gee lost 3 seconds in that short section than watch 30th place riders get similar splits on the final motorway again and again and again. Just because you can see a big portion of the track doesn't make it interesting. Just pull one camera and put it in the woods, that's all I ask.

...time stamp 4:09 through the end gave me the wood. :D He's ripping so fast that you can clearly hear the Doppler Effect from a bell starting at the :40 mark and ending around the :45 mark...

No doubt this has been posted, but in case you haven't seen this yet, check it out:


This is Gwin's helmet cam footage from his race run at Platty (Plattekill Mtn in upstate NY) during the ProGRT race a few weeks ago.

Anyone who has ridden there knows how loose and rocky the shale is, not to mention rough in a few spots... yet he carries speed like he's pinning it across a glass table.

This melts my face off every time I watch it... it's like he's on a silenced moto right out of the start gate... INSANE.

It is amazing to watch Gwin's style and how his head stays so stable and focused all the time eventhought his bike and body might be in any position. Like a martial artist focusing to his opponent.
