This clip from Bikemag.com is footage of the Sea Otter DH course. Did your run down the DH look as fast as this? And these guys were chillin’! I am pretty sure if I had seen this clip before my race run I would have improved my race time by at least 5 seconds- it really opened my eyes up to a few different lines I wish I had tried.
We’re hoping to get one in for testing in the near future. In the meantime, check it out at http://vholdr.com/
